Bryans Bumper

Post by fruitbowl »

Here is my attempt at building a Bryans Bumper.
I made this in 2018. I also added a stand to compliment the machine, continuing the Art Deco style down the front and sides, all built to scale and weight. Works well and pays out correctly.

Wow wow wow !OMFG!

That is awesome. Having just read the flyer, they were big and the stand is stunning in combo. Are the internals made as per the patent? Would be great to see a video working and inside....

You could have had a lot of fun here suggesting you have just restored the machine found in the back of a shed. :HaHa:

Great. Looks just like the 3 originals that I've got in my shed.

Fantastic job. Isn't it amazing what is being quietly constructed in the privacy of collector's homes?
All you need now is to empty the Hoover bag into it and hide it in the shed for 20 years.

Hi great job. I thought about making one a couple of years ago but never got round to it. Have you got any pictures of the works? Would be interested in seeing how it works. Pete.

That's absolutely amazing! I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought for a moment you'd turned up an original. Until I noticed it was in the build forum... You should have held back another four days and posted it under Discoveries.

We need to know more about its construction. Did you make your own patterns for the castings? How did you 're-invent' the mechanism (as there's no patent)? How long did it take?
Please record a video of it working. !!THUMBSX2!!

Next time I'm offered one, I'll study the woodgrain! Not that I'd let that put me off.
