Re: Old bandits can crop up anywhere!

This is already in the Bolands thread and as mentioned there has a Mills QT handle, so anyone’s guess on internals. In terms of the point around pricing, they are all over the place at the moment and I think BP is right, higher end machines seem to be going a lot cheaper than before and middle and l...

Re: How fast can you back pedal?

I have been using iron on veneers, so pre-glued, usually 5 or 6mm. Not had major issues, but I would like to try older veneers applying my own glue, which is more tricky. A lot of the veneer seems to be from US or Eastern Europe these days and does not look like the period stuffily old machines, so ...

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian - 65 parts

Not so common these on old penny as most were converted to 1np or 2np.....I have seen machines with 1D badges on, but converted to new money......

Re: How fast can you back pedal?

Not sure I have any skills, just determined to finish jobs I started. Already halfway through next a machine posted 6 years ago under another thread that had the worst worm I have ever seen.

Re: One arm bandit fluorescent tube lighting

You need series starters......the ones with FS on are no good, in fact as has been mentioned by one of our colleagues going to places like B&Q and maybe Amazon will not work unless you find the right type.

I buy St155 starters, not expensive rated from 4w to 22w

Welcome by the way

Re: Inca Gold

I have to ask, have you tried the lights or is something missing as I can see the starters and ballast, which is all that is needed. Anyway, I could not get a clear picture of the inside of one of my machines as shown below, so taken copies of two manual pictures of Nevada’s, has wiring diagrams and...

Re: Merkur

Tough call, but needs rescuing.....in my view £300 is too much for work involved....but I have spent similar on basket cases......I would go £250 if it had back door.....

Are we actually allowed to travel around anymore buying machines with ever changing rules, I’m confused !PUZZLED!

Re: Marooned slots

Happy anniversary !!THUMBSX2!! something I can say I will never achieve :HaHa: Makes a change to hear a story of rescuing machines from been dropped off a pier as a year later they would have ended up back in the mud anyway. I would have a bucket full of pound coins with the number of people sharing...
