I know I saw a post on the forum about servicing the pump on Mills/Sega fruit machines. Didn't need it then and can't find it now I do. Can anyone point me in the right direction?Thanks.

Re: Cleaning dirty white reel strips - Advice Please!

If the strips are very greasy, try a glass cleaning spray (but spray onto a pad, not directly onto the reels). This seems to work well without hurting the strips. It's also good for the delicate backs of glass painted payouts and top flashes, especially if they have had a light tube blacking them fo...

Re: Bonanza in the US

I don't understand why you're having trouble contacting a seller in the US through Ebay?? I do it all the time, twice today? No problem? Am I doing something different? I just go in through Ebay.com, click on contact seller and write my message, same every time. I do have a very very old ebay accoun...

Only a copy but I had fun doing it up!

I've just finished work on this Rol-a-Top repro I've had hanging about for a while. I know the experts will turn up their noses but I had fun working on it and it's the only chance I'll have to work on a case like this. It has the usual Riviera mech but I stripped it down and it came up very clean a...

Re: Rise of the Café Slot culture

In 1971 I was buying old pinballs and working on them for my own use and a friend of mine who worked in a recording studio in London asked me if I could put one into the lounge in the recording studio where the roadies and girlfriends hang out while the bands were recording, mostly all night. I put ...

Jennings mech with cigarette payout?

I saw this Jennings mech for sale on ebay USA and wondered if anyone knew what machine it was made for. It seems to have been made just to payout fags (or perhaps a token, but I don't think so) and is a work of art in itself. I would have liked to buy it.

Re: Bingolett..... help please!

Oh I never intended to give up! In fact my view is much the same as yours, I've put it on the back burner and started on the Rol-a-Top copy I've had sitting waiting for two months LOL. By the time I've finished that the Bingolett will definitely appeal again !!JUNK!!

Re: Bingolett..... help please!

My Bingolett, which started this thread, is not doing well. Despite being almost perfect as far as the case and glass, I simply can't get anywhere getting it to work. I've had lots of great help from the Forum, especially Slotalot, who put a lot of time into it online but it simply won't reset. As f...

Mills(?) silver Bells

Just out of interest, can anyone tell me about this machine on ebay? I'm not interested in buying it, it just looks odd; the side panels look slightly curved and very new and the guy says (and this seems hard to believe) that the back is riveted on and he's never seen inside, but it works OK. Sounds...
