TRY YOUR LUCK....MADE BY ......????

Postby scottie » Fri Sep 13, 2013 12:07 am

Moved & merged - Site Admin.

HELLO everyone,
This allwin, which I believe to be called "Try Your Luck " has a small oval metal name plate on the bottom right hand corner (by the ball hole). It says 'Kraft'.
I looked in Paul Braithwaite's book and there is no mention of an allwin called Try Your Luck by Kraft......
Any input would be great as to who made it and when.
Thanks,
Scottie.

I'm voting for Ruffler & Walker. It looks like one of their sweets machines tarted up as a gold-themed allwin. The top flash is not legible. Is it for sweets?

Gotta be Ruffler and Walker for sure. Nobody would've been crazy enough to have copied their style since it's so much better quality than the others in the '50s.

Here is mine which I have always been 100% sure is R&W.

Kraft Automatics had quite a big machine operating business... not sure whether they ever manufactured anything.

I bet Kraft just turned that brass ball release surround with the R & W logo backwards, then added their own badge.

Just to be pernickety I would say Corteen, as I understood R & W to be distibutors, not manufacturers.

But if I was not pernickety - Ruffler & Walker, without doubt.

Scottie, it's actually called "SPORT" and listed under R&W in the Braithwaite book.
