Not Southend but Shoeburyness (nr. Southend). I went looking for the firm once but they had closed down years ago.

Great machines and very reliable!

I wonder how many colours were done. Also the Ruffler and Walker one, was this actually made by JWS as we know they had machines made for them by other companies.

Thanks for sharing

They are my favourite conversions. I can remember a row of them on Paignton pier all different colours and lit up.
I've only owned one of them, it was before I felt confident to tear one down and make changes. It needed converting back from 1np to 1d and I didn't feel up to the task so I sold it.

Yet another '60s conversion using German mechs

Postby coppinpr » Tue Feb 09, 2021 10:59 am

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Just saw this on Ebay and was rather taken by them. I don't usually like the boxy '60s conversions, but these I rather like. The price being asked is false of course. He clearly intends to sell off ebay using his phone number included in the photos.

If you took a zero off the price, they may sell .........One is missing its cash door and payout tray and the other has a totally rotten base. These have come up many times at auctions, including Coventry and are in the Beromat thread, look nice done up. I believe BP used to have one. :cool:

BP still has that one!! !THUMBS!
What is particularly clever is that the Formica side panel on the left folds back once you've opened the front door which hinges up. So you get a lot of access to the mech without having to remove it from the case.
