Catchup tv is great, you can quickly skip to the bits which took me all of 5 minutes to do.... (Spoiler alert)

It is of course easy to be critical when you probably have more knowledge than they do, but I guess it sort of works, perhaps not correctly in terms of timing. The thing that I need specialist help in is when seeing shiny new Philips screws and springs he proudly shows the owner.....what the hell was wrong with the originals !PUZZLED! Also the bit of metal pulled out looks like the support plate for the coin escalator......wonder if that had been like that for a long time or happened when he took apart. I see also they had a spare mechanism there and what looks like a Vale type plastic front machine I guess for spares.....

Oh well good to see the hobby on TV, seems a regular on this program....let’s see more !!THUMBSX2!!

Hi all,all that effort & did not clean the glass at the front. They are terrible machines to operate, customers always try & pull the handle down before the coin goes into the mech. It looks like it may have been used in a club or hotel Pete.
