Bingolette and Duomat

Postby glittering-prize67 » Sat Mar 08, 2014 10:51 am

Here are my two German machines, Duomat and Bingolette. Both restored many years ago by me and still enjoyed everyday.

They look great! Especially like the Duo with striped glass and matching stripy veneer case.

Nice machine.....

Gone a bit mad with Duomats now and yet to stick one on a wall.....Think the lower left one is a Harold restoration. The top left one needs restoration. The other two are good, although one needs the timing adjusted, great machines.....Waiting for one of the variants with the reset button, like Duolett...

My dad has a Bingolette I would like to find out how/who could restore it. I took it apart as a child and peices are missing. I know the motor and gear(?) shaft are missing. He has been seriously unwell recently and I would like to try and get it restored as a surprise.

If you're looking for someone to do the restore for you, there are very few professional restorers as most people are hobbyists and have endless of their own projects. You could try Henry Powell, (google) not sure if he does electromechanical though and not aware of anyone else specialising in these....

There's some more info about them here: Bingolette

I don't know if former member glittering-prize67 still works on machines, but he knew how to fix these. I guess your biggest obstacle would be replacing the motor.

I have a Rialto; pretty much the same as a Bingolette. It's a fantastic fun machine to play. One of the late Harold English's machines, so carefully looked after and made good. It's a 10 German pfennig play, which is great as 20p coins work perfect. Out of all my machines it's the one that visitors head for to play. Your machines look lovely!
