Re: Old bandits can crop up anywhere!

I agree and always steer clear of giving a value (especially in another country). I will offer advice about what affects the value, rarity, condition etc. and what to look out for when viewing. With this machine, I hadn't even seen a photo at that time. I have now and it turns out it's a rare one mu...

Re: BM Co. auto-pay Wizard & Allwin

I'm trying to fix this machine for the friend who now owns it. He bought it quite cheaply at auction and it has a few problems but I think I can deal with it with some expert help from the forum. Clearly, I'm missing the coin slide cover for the slide (A) but I think I can make that. As it stands in...

Old bandits can crop up anywhere!

I had a query on my www.penny-arcade.info web site from a man asking what sort of price would be fair for a Tom Boland film stars his friend was selling and he was thinking of buying. I'm at a bit of a loss to suggest a price seeing seller, buyer and machine are all in Australia. :o I doubt Tom coul...

Re: Marooned slots

I looked a little deeper (excuse the pun) into the collapse of Clevedon pier and found it to be an unusual story with a happy ending. The pier actually collapsed while being stress tested for insurance reasons, something that had only been introduced a couple of years earlier. The council used the c...

Marooned slots

Today was my golden wedding anniversary! Why do we care I hear my long time associates on the forum cry! Well my daughter was kind enough to buy my wife and me a bound copy of the daily newspaper from that day (24th Oct 1970). Looking at the paper now it's amazing the sort of story that made it to d...

Re: Are these slot related or not?

I suspect only in the same way as asking others the questions on xmas cracker mottos, However the fruit machine symbols and the numbers printed on the slips (and over stamped as well) hint at a random chance to win a better prize across the counter in the same way as a trade stimulator worked .Perha...
