Looks like B&Q meets Beromat, crossed with Meccano... shame really.

I’ve seen one of these before, or perhaps it was this actual machine. I certainly recognise the rather attractive cast pediment, and I also recognise the ‘plumbing’ on the mech. The mech. seems fairly straightforward, although from what I can see, the machine doesn’t appear to award a free go – just coin return. I am rather intrigued by the enormous ball tube – either it is very thick-walled tube, or the poor little clown figure is expected to catch something the size of a golf ball! All in all, rather a nice machine and one I’d quite like myself……………….£2000? probably not for me.
