Venue - Rapid Scaffolding, Osmaston Road Business Park, Osmaston Rd, Derby DE23 8LD
Following the success of last year's event we've been asked if we can do another this year …… YES WE CAN!!!!
In case you're new to the hobby and missed last year's extravaganza, it was awsome.
In about 5 hours we sold over 4,000 machine parts and some splendid machines
Afterwards the majority of the spares were sold to a European dealer, however …..
Gallons of the stuff had been held back, due to us not having had time to go through it all.
Also there was still stuff in storage which had not even been transported up to Derby at that time.
So we have plenty more to offer in the way of spares, including things that weren't there last year, more of that later!
Last year we also had a sales table of machines, it was declared a day of great opportunities for all.
This year we are opening up the trading experience to everyone.
You can have your own Trade Table to sell as much of your own items for a modest sum.
Alternatively if you only have some items to move on and you don't feel it's worth having your own table then you can add them to our display and we'll sell it on your behalf for a small %, no sale no fee.
If you want to have a table or have us sell something for you email or pm me now please.
Updates and further information will be posted here.
Have we still got some of everything we offered last year?
I haven't a clue, I suspect not, but couldn't tell you what is lacking apart from the machines, as they sold.
What about the useful stuff we pay a fortune for from Americaland?
Oh yes we've got all that still ~ Cash Boxes ~ Escalators ~ Jackpots ~ Handles ~ Castings ~ Reels ~ Reel Strips ~ Coin Slides ~ Springs ~ Tokens ~ Badges ~ Denominators ~ Fingers ~ Spad Blocks ~ Clocks ~ Pumps ~ And New Stuff Too!
What the dickens is a Spad Block????
I just made that up to see if you were all still awake.
So what's new this year? We have tons of original machine screws for American slots. If you've ever fettled your Yankee Bandit you'll know their Standard and Unified threads are not only like hen's teeth over here and stupidly expensive to import, but also you can not force a British imperial or metric substitute into place with out causing damage.
Well we have the originals all NOS!
Likewise the long Machine Bolts/Carriage Bolts that go through the wooden cases. How many an excellent restoration have you seen or done where your eyes go straight to the sloppy bolt heads on the outside?
Again, we have them too!
It's all New Old Stock, and manufactured for the Slot Machine Industry and your machines in particular.
New for this year too is a slice of M Harris Snr's extensive library of books, manuals and technical papers.

Ample free parking
Simple pricing structure with free bags to collect what you want and pay at the end.
