Well done Scottie.

Hello B.P.
I think I ran out of grannies a few years back, just about the same time I ran out of room for these allwins....

But I can't stop. !PUZZLED!

Another single slot Greyhound Stadium at last Sunday's EH sale (I suspect the pediment was added later), and a Clement & Whales Commercial.

T'would be interesting to see the inside of yours jimmy.

I'll wager a snifter of jollop to a crate of codswallop it's different to the Caille/Clement & Whales cast iron, built in a shipyard edifice that needs at least two men in the engine room variety.

Do like these Greyhound Stadium machines, wouldn't mind owning one. It would be great to see the more basic machine in play, as far as I know they are just 2,4 and 6 penny payouts. Someone out there must have one in working order?

That looks like a genuine Caille, whereas most of the British machines are questioned whether they are repurposed Caille machines or ones using recast parts. Can never remember whether there was a final conclusion on this.

Henk, easy way to tell is remove a handful of different diameter bolts and check the thread gauge, if it's Caille they'll be UNC/F and British made will by BSW, and think the French made copies of Caille too so those would be Metric.
