Mini Laughing Sailor

Post by slotalot »

After four months of working on this machine I thought it time to post about it on here :cool:
It is my mini laughing sailor machine, it is built on the lines of the full sized machine, it works on old penny and has an adjustable timer, currently set at about 50 seconds, just like his big brother it has moving eyes and a chuckle cam, The hardest part was creating the head in such a small size, it is approximately 3 inch tall. The cabinet is about the size of a standard allwin and is ideal for the smaller or traveling arcade.

Ideal for a certain portable arcade that operates out of the Nottinghamshire area.

I would like to see a few more pictures of it. I just can't see how the top right picture can be the back of the left-hand one.

The the shape of the front of the cabinet is designed to add interest to the machine and also help to hide door for the cash box and the cover for the speaker and lighting :o
Hear are a couple more photos, hope they help. :cool:

Good question, it only runs in short bursts under very little load, so it is well within the spec for this motor. :didact:
