Well I sold one on eBay just over a week ago was cheap as well, not sure I would have risked shipping to Canada though..... maybe someone will......good luck
Oh hey I just pulled up your sales. Damn, yeah, good price. I would have easily gone higher.
Unsure if someone would undertake it, but I would totally pay for the shipping and the effort that does into the "handling" of shipping something like that over sees. What would be a decent rate for S&H you estimate? £100?

Let me know if you come across another and want to give it a go, I will do a fair price. :)

One day, we shall see. thanks for the invite.
No worries, the site's Administrative Assistant Human Resources and Tourism officer will meet you at the airport. He will be the one waving wildly and holding up a small card with the letters BP on it.

Now I am seriously worried.....
When I left school I went to work in a travel agency for 3 years.
At the peak of my working life I was a Human Resources Director for one of the largest employers in the UK.
If you are aware of my actions on the 24th June 1999 please keep quiet. !OMFG!

Help, in the second last win chute one before the biggest star, when I win the jackpot the penny coming across from the second last column gets stuck on the lever which it looks like jams on the resting pin of the upper lever rather than flicking it up. Happens about 50% of the time. Has anyone else had this issue. I fix it by removing and shacking the box but its annoying me having to do this.

Can this be fixed by grinding a little off the lever to allow it past the pin or do I need to replace it? If replacement needed can someone direct me to the spares on this site.

Cheers.

Eugene

Before you start altering permanently.
Remember that when coins are employed as part of the game they carry with them all the grease, dirt and fluff they gather from every pocket and purse they've been in. That gets transferred to the next place they end up in.

If this was my machine, I'd remove the playfield from the case, get all of the coins off the playfield and feel the smoothness or lack of in the trips when they move. I bet when you look at the playfield without coins you'll still see all of the outlines of them. That's the dirt, and it's slowing and grabbing the coins.
remove it all, and when dry polish it with a furniture spray. Clean the inside of the glass as well.

We'll all now await your next post, which you should title, "How do I get a Bell Cascade back together without the trips all falling off?" Someone then will reply and tell you about laying two chairs face to face with you lying on the floor between them and reaching up.

BP :cool:
ps when you clean the glass on the inside, remember it's the side with the transfer on, we can get replacement trips, but I've never seen replacement transfers.

A wise man posted on here you need to lay two chairs face to face with you lying on the floor between them and reaching up. Can't for the life of me think who it was? :lol: It's quite amazing how the subject of the Bell Fruit Cascade has come up. I always fancied one of these but I have a bad back and don't think I'd be able to get up off the floor and somebody would find me five years later as a skeleton sandwiched between two chairs with a Bell Fruit Cascade impaled upon my skull; probably.

OK, maybe time for a new plan. Can someone give me the exact dimensions of a Cascade, and weight?

I am heading to London next spring and wonder if I can maybe bring one home with me on the plane...

Not got one in front me now, but must be light, 10 to 15 kg I reckon and smaller than most Allwins...... Big issue will be the glass and how to get through without breaking. I wouldn’t trust luggage people. Although you could take out and carefully apply to back of cabinet with layers of padding flat and strapped...... Not sure you would get through as hand luggage, but again glass would need to be well protected...

You'd need to protect the glass not only from the outside.
You'd need to fill the void inside as well, probably pack the gap between the playfield and glass with compressed foam rubber.
