Well the two weeks deadline has passed and only the German monster has been snaffled up, the little sweety vendor remains unloved.

Therefore I have had no other option than to plead beg and lie to Doff and she has extended the warrant of execution for another ten days, just to shut me up.

So some lucky somebody has until 28 August to claim it.
Don't be shy! :?

Hi Babpenny, :D Nice sweet vendor! I used to have one just like it :roll:. Thanks again for the Imperator !!THUMBSX2!! , restoration is well underway now as you can see from the photo, I am also going to add a page to my website: http://www.slotmachines.bravehost.com dedicated to the restoration, when I get the time that is. :tarah:

Now about this sweet vendor! come on give the man a break - it's free, and would look good in your games room/bar!

Hi All :D , As some of you may know I have been busy for the last few months putting some new life back into the Bergman Imperator that was gifted to me by a fellow slottie (thanks Badpenny), and things are going quite well !!THUMBSX2!! , It is starting to look quite smart and I have managed to make sense of the mass of wires and relays, and I have had it up and running :*** with lots of flashing lights and clicking relays :*** I am now working on a new glass for it. :*: But can anyone help me with the instruction transfer (see photo) this photo was taken from an other machine but I can not see what it says :oops: Has anyone got a clear photo of this lable that I can make a copy from :?:. I will post some more photos of the machine when it is finished, both here and on my own website. :tarah:

Well done S, you've really transformed that poor old beasty.

The decal you're pointing to translates into English as: -

"After full renovation please return to Badpenny" :P

You really have made a first class job of it, I've just flicked back to the before pics! Hard to believe it's the same machine, I don't know where you find the time. I have a few machines waiting for various jobs ranging from minor to major lumps of time (as I suspect do a lot of our members). Luckily Badpenny stored it carefully whilst it was in his possession otherwise it would have been really rough. I will be transferring some of my projects up the garden next to our compost bin asap now I know that's the proper way to store machines!

Well done.

The sun is shining, outside it's 12degrees Centigrade (which is 4 miles 2 shillings & and an ounce in real money) I have a Harley aching to get back out on the road, and what do you think Mrs Badpenny wants to do?
Yes.... you've guessed it Ruin-it-Yourself. I've been dragged down to GroanBase and am now about to paper the carpet or something.
So what's all this to do with slots I hear you ignore. Well seeing as you're all on the edge of your seats with apathy I'll tell you.

I've just had to clear the shelves in the front room and have discovered another freebie to pass on.
Namely: -
An original technical owner/operator 5 page manual, for something called an Imperator made by a company called Th. Bergmann & Co. of Hamburg.
It's for a machine serial number 70371256 manufactured on the 31 Marz 1957 The Head of Technical thingies delighting n the name of Dr. Lob

I think I used to have one of these once ....... can't really remember ........ I feel strangley drawn towards compost, don't know what's going on there?

Any old how I don't suppose it's of any interest to anyone on reflection as it's all in German, folded in two and held together by 2 rusty old staples.

So unless somebody called Stuart really wants it I'll chuck it any minute now. ;-)
