Go-N-Stop

Postby treefrog » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:54 am

Thought I would add the unusual German looking machine on eBay recently “Go N Stop” from Polymat Automaten AG, which appears to be a Swiss company or are at least registered there and went into insolvency in 1993. Almost had a punt at this as the attractive colours and spinning arrow looking appealing. Never seen one before and cannot be many in the U.K., especially working. Nice machine, finished at £235.

Judging by the cabinet and mechanism this has to be a Gunter Wulff machine with non-German glass. It's very similar to the 1965 Addomat.

I saw it and recoiled at the vipers' nest of wiring.
Definitely has GW antecedents.

It also plays just like the Astra too; here's the Astra on youtube. Nice machine.

A German collector friend has a couple of GW machines that say they come from Switzerland, perhaps revamped in much the same way as we did in the UK?
