Re: My New Allwin

Postby john t peterson » Wed Apr 05, 2017 4:17 pm

Good find, Greg. It looks to be in good shape with only the slight modification to the US penny. One of the major problems with that modification (other than the obvious molestation) is that the small US penny will most likely not be heavy enough to consistently trip the ball release lever. As you noted, removing the plastic shims inside the coin slide will return the mechanism to original.

I like the current backflash with the UV softening in the main play field. I would not mess with that were it mine. As Mr. PM noted, the coin entry plate should not be a significant challenge to recreate.

Well done on acquisition.

I've merged Coppin's query with an older one which shows a similar '30s BMCo allwin (posted by JP) with the the Deco-style cabinet and glitter flash.

The EH example above appears to have a newly-made cabinet which doesn't follow BMCo design or dimensions.
The one below was sold at Chippenham Auctions last Saturday.
As far as I know, these allwins don't have a name.

Is there any chance of seeing the workings of the blue machine? I'm new to the penny machine game and bought my first machine yesterday and it's the same as the blue one. I'm not sure if everything is there, as it was a box of bits.

Any help would be appreciated,
Cheers Pennyket

Hi Pennyket,
I don't own the above machine, but if you post a picture of what you have, I'm sure we can identify what's missing.
All BM Co. manual payout allwins are much the same inside.

These are photos of my semi assembled machine. Any advice would be great.

Cheers Pennyket

Nice … I think there may be a screw and a couple of washers absent!?

Odd, there are usually holes and a route in the backboard for the losing ball to travel. It appears only to be a (large) route for the winning ball. !PUZZLED!

Argee, I imagine the two lose holes just let the ball drop through to the exit hole below. |/XX\|
