Bryans Fruit Bowl instructions needed

Post by treefrog »

So today I bought my first machine in a year @&@ the Bryans Fruitbowl as seen on the Salesroom. Was local to me and I was able to view, a true barn find with a pile of mouse items inside. When I got home I managed to get the cash drawer open to find a huge stash of old chestnuts, the mouse must have carried every one through the payout tray, up the cash tube through a small hole to the cashbox and stored on top of a pile of 1500 pennies.......he must of died before eating them from exhaustion as most were uneaten :HaHa:

Amazingly machine is solid, complete and works although needs a clean and lube and polish. One thing that is missing is the instruction sheet as shown below. If anyone has a machine and whenever you get a chance, would be great to get a copy of one.......much appreciated....also anyone know where the serial number is located on the mechanism, I cannot find anywhere !PUZZLED!

Well done on a good buy, and all those free pennies and nuts! I did think the estimate was a bit optimistic!

Thank you gentlemen !!THUMBSX2!!

Odd as there is no number on the bar on mine that I can see. This is the same position on clocks as well. !PUZZLED!

Tree, could that bar have been taken off and replaced backwards to hide number?

I found a number, tiny and on the top end of one of the support posts, but the frame number does not match the cabinet which 106, and this is 162. I guess a mix match, but both earlier numbers. The size is similar to what is stamped in front casting.

Well all cleaned up, repairs done (wood, locks etc) and running perfectly, I have to admit although they are pretty much the same as the Clock, there is something memorising about the domed dish spinning

Well done tf, nice tidy machine. Spinning time seems quick, can that be controlled?
