Conveyor & Rollercoaster

Postby glittering-prize67 » Thu Feb 20, 2020 9:58 pm

Hi all, not been around for a while. Yes, it was me that made the Conveyors and I made a bigger one called Elevator. I also made two small Rollercoasters and a large one in a dark wood cab called Mountain Descent. I've also made quite a few other games Inc Howzat and Jelly Fingers, which were similar to a clown catcher and table top pushers to name a few.

I'd like to see your home-builds; can you post some pictures?
I'm still on with a Green-Ray variant, which needs to be finished by April. I'm not good at posting pictures, but I'll 'borrow' someone competent when the time comes.
Have I seen your 'Conveyor', years ago?

Not sure if you seen it or not, I did a lot of work for Darren Hesketh too with his old penny arcade, mainly working models.

Pictures from me or the other guy? I'm thinking of making another Conveyor for myself. I've just made a change machine for my jukebox and it's got me in the mood.

An INTERNATIONAL change machine, with a different exchange rate for different coin denominations?

Surely a 'first'?

That’s a brilliant piece of work but you won’t get many takers at that exchange rate :HaHa:
