Shields Tuck Shop, Jamieson Shoot! & Threes! pinballs

Postby slotalot » Wed Feb 29, 2012 12:37 pm

I am looking for a good clear hi-res photo of the artwork for the head of this machine, do any of you good people own one? :cool:
The machine is called SHOOT! and was the sister machine to the Tuck Shop, both machines were made in the 1960s by Shields of Bridlington. :didact:
I have found a few photo's on the net, but they are not very clear. !!JUNK!!
Can you help :!?!: thanks in advance !WORSHIPFULL!

Shields Pinballs

HELP!
Hi :D , I have just managed to add yet another Shields pinball to my collection, or I will have once I get the head box sorted !PUZZLED! but to do this I need your help. So has anyone got a copy or photo of the artwork, or even a head box for this machine? I think it must have had the ACE, KING & QUEEN playing cards on it to indicate the payouts. I would like to get the artwork right, so any help would be very welcome.
Here is the machine (and yes, it was the one on Ebay last week) and also a photo of my other 2 Shields pinballs.
Thanks in advance :tarah:

I love Shields Pinballs but alas I can't help you with yours. It seems like only yesterday that wheelers and dealers had literally dozens of them going nice and cheap. I remember at auction, complete working ones were going for £50. Bryans were still comparatively expensive of course. Some things never change!

Happy collecting and keep posting those photos. :cool:

You could try looking up Boogie Woogies music shop in Bridlington, owned by Chris Shields. His dad made the machines.

Now you've done it, you'd best warn Chris Shields he's likely to be descended upon by Stuart who will move in with him in order to scrutinise his photo albums, photograph every house he ever lived in, count and pair up his bri-nylon socks.

It ain't going to be pretty! :NBG:

This is by way of an update re Shields artwork wanted :D . My good friend Robert Rowland sent me this photo of the artwork I am looking for !THUMBS! . I now know the machine was called "Threes!" If this jogs your memory and you have this machine or a photo taken square on from the front !WORSHIPFULL! I would love to see it before I start to recreate the artwork for my machine.
Thanks again Rob :tarah:

Hi, does anyone know anything about this company, its history and the type of machines they made? I can't find out much online and I have come across a very primitive pinball machine made by them and would like to restore it to the best of my ability. Pics below. Sorry about the poor quality photo and bad reflection of the ceiling light.

Yikes! suddenly I have a dozen messages from years ago. There is obviously something I don't know about this site. Anyhoo the machine I have has a metal plaque on it stating Krafts Automatics Ltd London N16 so at a wild guess does this mean it was not manufactured by them but they sold them on Sheilds behalf?
