I did have a set of photos of the workings of this machine, but at the moment I can only find this one. It shows the side flipper handle.

The mech is quite basic, with some parts made from unfinished plywood, and bent bits of wire/rod. Not very well made.

The game play is simple:
On pushing a coin into the machine, 5 balls are released internally; the balls are flicked one at a time and appear out of the hole in the neck of the medicine bottle at the top of the playfield; the ball falls onto the track on Hitler's face; the face is rocked from side to side via the knob at the bottom of the machine; any balls that fall from the tracks end up as out at the bottom of the cabinet; any that make their way into his mouth are registered as poison and sit in the little window below his head. The idea is to get all the balls in his mouth, no prizes given. If I can find the photos of the mech I will post them later.

Mr. P suggested that I link the picture, paste it to something, let it dry, then put it in something called a URL.

Please Mr. P ---- I just found out how to turn on my black and white TV. I just threw out my old ice box and I'm thinking of installing indoor plumbing. ROGER
