I didn't go but told that 40 maybe 50 people there?

Watling went for around 1300 he said, others who went may be able to confirm or not.

Not sure on either exactly, but think the Circle Skill was around 460 to 480 and the printable around 500 ish.

Odd auction as some items went cheap and some rocketed.......example one of the Tooty Fruitys went for I think £120.

I bought the Safari allwin, nice blue Formica one for £290 with only Steve as my opposing bidder, as they were no commissions..... Like these machines, they are quality...

But machines like the Rotolite almost made £700.

There were not many machines, but a few hidden gems... For me the bargain and machine of the day, was a boring old Bryans clock.... the one that had been in an arcade basement for 45 years. This machine was like new, mint. I thought at first it had been recased, but no. it just had not been used. I was talking when this came up and it sold for £250.... Must be one of the best out there.

What's happening to these auctions? The 24th July is supposed to be Vintage Amusements + Jukeboxes, Americana & Rock-n-Roll Retro. Really? Can't see me driving 100 miles for that stuff. Might as well go to a boot sale. :#:

One of our mods telephoned me about defamatory remarks in this thread yesterday, which we agreed should be edited or deleted. Before we concluded our conversation, the content was removed by the hosting server in response to an abuse report.

I don't wish to stifle free speech, but would like to remind members, for the sake of this website and the hobby in general, to exercise judgement in their postings.

I think JC went a little too far on a public forum,which is what I hinted at in my post (which also got removed !PUZZLED! ) perhaps because it refered to his post :!?!:

In the interests of transparency, as I said above, two posts were removed from this thread, not by me or the moderators, but by the hosting service following an abuse report. This was coincident with my decision to remove the content, following a call from one of our moderators. I then removed another two posts yesterday, which would have triggered another abuse report, with possibly more serious consequences for the poster and this website.

As provider of this forum I try to steer a path between encouraging free speech and ensuring that content remains within civil and legal bounds.

I hope that clarifies what's been going on and I ask you to let it rest now. If anyone is interested in the section of the 2013 Defamation Act, as it applies to websites, see: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/201 ... /5/enacted
