Re: My Rotomat Juwel and Duomat penny arcades

mounting the finished item with the circles already cut out would be very difficult,although Im sure a professional could do it with ease.

I think we are all waiting to see the result,you would be surprised to see the number of duo-mat machines around with no glass :lol:

I printed this in black and white on letter size paper and taped it on the glass to check the sizing.
It looks somewhat colored in the picture but is black and white. Lol
Looks to fit nicely.
I have requested a quote to get it printed both as a stick on and a rear glass transfer where you put it on with glass cleaner.

If it was me I think Id leave the info card holes open and mount cards behind the glass like the real glass

That's looking good liquorbox, perfect this and you may have a number of takers out there.

I thought the info cards were originally printed on the glass pc, or did they remove the German info and replace with English cards when imported?

They tended to scratch off the German script and mount a card on the back of the glass.

Anglicized mirror glasses were made for most of the German machines of this period, but although the Duomat was a common game, they're usually (if not always) altered for English as BP describes.

Maybe not helpful to nitpick at this stage, but you get better results by remastering your image quite a bit larger than the original and only scaling to fit at the printing stage. Much better to scale down than up. Also, there seems to be a little step in the 'D' inadvertently copied from a reflection on the original.

It will be very interesting to see how this turns out.

Hey Mr. P tell them all about your chat with Jim Bryan (or was it his brother?) and what he said about Duo Mats. ;-)
