Hello

Postby reject » Tue Aug 15, 2017 11:27 pm

Just a quick introduction. I was born in 1940 and apprenticed to the Radio and TV repair business in the mid 50’s, just at the start of the rock and roll era. I was always fascinated by jukeboxes, pintables and all sorts of slot machines, including seaside arcades and piers. I eventually worked for a dealer who, as well as R&TV repairs had a contract for fruit machines and jukeboxes. I have been collecting most of my life, old radio’s, TV’s, vintage lorries, and about 17 jukeboxes with small selection of slot machines thrown in. I have now sold most of this but retain a Jennings Club Chief, 2 Allwins a Keeneys Crazy Gang and a Criss Cross EM wall machine of unknown origin, plus a couple of jukes.
I still have an active involvement with a travelling arcade (Kevin Gamlen’s, father of Georgina Carter) and hope to be at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, The Goodwood Revival and Coxley Green. I would be pleased to chat to any members if they are at these events, please ask for Dave.

Welcome Dave,

Would love to go to the Dorset Steam fair and many on here know Kevin, especially as the fine auctioneer at Coventry....

Maybe I will see you there if I make it this year

Pictures of Criss Cross as requested, I think it must be of German origin possibly made for export as all the instructions are in English.
The Coxley Green event is indeed Carters steam fair, supported by a free vintage car and lorry show.

Your machine is a 1965 Wulff "Optima Supra" with a UK glass (the glass may well be German made)
