Event This Summer in Derby

Postby badpenny » Sat Jun 15, 2019 10:32 pm

The Summer Slotty Event ~The Summer Slotty Event ~The Summer Slotty Event ~The Summer Slotty Event ~The Summer Slotty


Venue - Rapid Scaffolding, Osmaston Road Business Park, Osmaston Rd, Derby DE23 8LD

Following the success of last year's event we've been asked if we can do another this year …… YES WE CAN!!!!

In case you're new to the hobby and missed last year's extravaganza, it was awsome.
In about 5 hours we sold over 4,000 machine parts and some splendid machines
Afterwards the majority of the spares were sold to a European dealer, however …..

Gallons of the stuff had been held back, due to us not having had time to go through it all.
Also there was still stuff in storage which had not even been transported up to Derby at that time.

So we have plenty more to offer in the way of spares, including things that weren't there last year, more of that later!

Last year we also had a sales table of machines, it was declared a day of great opportunities for all.

This year we are opening up the trading experience to everyone.
You can have your own Trade Table to sell as much of your own items for a modest sum.
Alternatively if you only have some items to move on and you don't feel it's worth having your own table then you can add them to our display and we'll sell it on your behalf for a small %, no sale no fee.
If you want to have a table or have us sell something for you email or pm me now please.
Updates and further information will be posted here.

Have we still got some of everything we offered last year?
I haven't a clue, I suspect not, but couldn't tell you what is lacking apart from the machines, as they sold.
What about the useful stuff we pay a fortune for from Americaland?
Oh yes we've got all that still ~ Cash Boxes ~ Escalators ~ Jackpots ~ Handles ~ Castings ~ Reels ~ Reel Strips ~ Coin Slides ~ Springs ~ Tokens ~ Badges ~ Denominators ~ Fingers ~ Spad Blocks ~ Clocks ~ Pumps ~ And New Stuff Too!
What the dickens is a Spad Block????
I just made that up to see if you were all still awake.

So what's new this year?
GPeYSGk.jpg
Nut Screws Washers & Bolts
We have tons of original machine screws for American slots. If you've ever fettled your Yankee Bandit you'll know their Standard and Unified threads are not only like hen's teeth over here and stupidly expensive to import, but also you can not force a British imperial or metric substitute into place with out causing damage.
Well we have the originals all NOS!
Likewise the long Machine Bolts/Carriage Bolts that go through the wooden cases. How many an excellent restoration have you seen or done where your eyes go straight to the sloppy bolt heads on the outside?
Again, we have them too!
It's all New Old Stock, and manufactured for the Slot Machine Industry and your machines in particular.
New for this year too is a slice of M Harris Snr's extensive library of books, manuals and technical papers.

As per last year: -
Ample free parking
Cheap prices
Hot food
Cold Drinks
Simple pricing structure with free bags to collect what you want and pay at the end.

Machines comfirmed so far: -

4 x Jennings slot machines (Four Star Chief, Wild Indian, Standard Chief, Governor)
3 x Bryans machines (Hidden Treasure, Gap Win, Elevenses) for restoration
1 x Allwin football theme (U-Select)
1 x Sparks trade stimulator
2 x Pinballs (same model, one working. one donor machine) come and play on the day.
1 x Rare and different Jubilee bandit (with history) 6d play restored.

Machines promised (TBC)

Mills Extraordinary … Old electric Wall Machine (ex Southport Pier) ….. numerous American Trade Stims including rare Mills Puritan.

More information will be added as we know it.

.…. It makes me laugh that 100 people have looked at it, but only you asked. :lol:

I put Sunday Aug 11th 10.30 - 4.30 on the previous thread (Mick and I have agreed to a return match at the same venue in Derby on Sunday August 11th. ( Sun May 05, 2019 8:43 pm ) Also in the Calendar on this site it's shown as such.

However you are of course quite right when marketing never assume everyone thinks the same way you do.
Especially with my track record for screwing up.
You coming? Want to put owt in?

BP !!CHEERS!!

Machines and Spares Sale Rapid Scaffolding
Osmaston Road Business Park
Osmaston Rd
Derby
DE23 8LD

Hello everyone, I've just got back of holiday and can't believe we are only a month away from the
Derby Sale Day
Sunday 11th August 2019
10.30 - 4.30

Jeremy shortly be adding in the photos of the machines on sale. Click on the link;

I'm really looking forward to it and seeing you all again. We have the last of the stock we got out of my Dad's house. But here's the difference, This year anything that doesn't sell won't be sold off abroad or anything.
I shall be keeping it for the future, but if you want anything you need to know this.
None of it will be available other than by these sales days.
I shall be moving it away and into storage.

My day job is so busy I need all the room at The Unit, so it has to move.
I have so little free time I won't be going to the storage and hunt bits out for anyone.

So, sorry but there's no point in contacting me after this event asking me to send out bits or to put things up on eBay … I JUST CAN'T BE DOING IT.

As last year, cash only, use the bags supplied at each table, don't mix different priced items in the same bag or you'll get charged for everything in the bag at the highest priced item.

Tea and coffee will be available, plenty free parking and services.
Strictly no trading out of car boots!

See you there…..

I've just loaded the latest machines to be offered at Derby in ten days time.
There will also be stock I haven't photos for, it should be a great day!
Don't forget you can bring stuff to sell on the day without having a table, it'll go on my table and I sell on your behalf for 5% commission.
Strictly No Selling From The Car Park, anyone disrespecting this rule will be named and shamed and excluded from future events.

I'm having a bit of fun with Imgur it doesn't seem to be the most intuitive of sites, so I fear there may be duplications and of course some missing :dammit:

Here we go everyone, the countdown is on to this Sunday in Derby.
I've been updating here and via Facebook while using IMGUR as a holding site for the photos since I announced this event.
I appreciate that IMGUR isn't always the easiest to find your way around (probably my fault) you have to find the button at the end of each page to load the next thirty odd photos.
I have learnt that it helps everyone if it's all just click and look as I've had people asking me what will be there on the day. Which shocked me as I'd posted up over 80 photographs in total.

So, I'm going to repeat the machines for sale here and signpost The FB people to here. It's also astounded me how many on the FB pages are not aware of Pennymachines.co.uk !!!! Hopefully then we'll get some fresh footfall here as a result.

These are the photos of machines on offer all together.

... and more: -

These are only the ones I have photos for, I'm also expecting a superb Payramid, at least 4 more bandits and wall machines as well.
I'm not going to repeat the photos of the spares I think they were well described from the beginning.

This is turning into a proper "Bring & Buy" so if you're dithering about contributing something yourself, then don't hesitate.
We'll place anything you want to sell on our "House Table" for a mere 5% of its selling price, no sale no fee.
We also have trade tables standing, and I have NO IDEA what treasures will be offered from them.
There will be strictly NO DEALING FROM the car park.
NO ENTRANCE FEE! ….. NOTHING TO PAY TO GET OUT AFTERWARDS! ….. What more could you ask for?

This may be the last mail I post before the event. Doors open to the public at 10.30 I hope to see you there.

BP !!RAYOF!!
