Re: Bajazzo Clown

hi all, I have a 10_ number machine (too cold tonight to go out to the workshop & find exact number). It does have some original tokens with the matching number, My machine clearly was built with the same tokens on show slide as the featured machine, but has been changed to the simpler one rolls dow...

Re: Tarting up a jubilee bandit - repainting

I have heard people on here ( I think!) talk scathingly about people painting bandits to suit the decor, but for m...
