Running Hare

Postby barryisland » Sat Jul 04, 2020 3:31 pm

Hello
Here is my second of only two amusement machines. If the original pic comes out you can see parts of the case was very rotten, it became a long job. Then it needed a new main cog cut as the hare skipped past the gun where teeth were missing. I did wonder if that was intentional to reduce the payout.
I am pleased with the result. For me it attracts my interest longer than the clown.

You have started off your collection with two absolute crackers! They are two really iconic machines. Well done.
You do realise that this hobby is addictive, and you won't stop at two!

You know what BarryIsland - I have that picture of the two machines before restoration which I believe you sent me - a very long time ago. After I failed to persuade you to part with either machine, I supplied the newly cut gear to replace the butchered one, and you traced an outline of your top to copy for my Hare.
Lovely machine, and I'm glad you decided to sort it out and cherish it.

Well well well
Yes I remember you well, and all the help you gave me.
They are still up and running.
I have not added to them, as bryans fan rightly says, its addictive. I have a few more collecting obsessions to feed but I would love a few more around the place.
I hope you are well, still in the same place?
