Early in this thread I cautiously stated these machines were made by or for Ruffler and Walker and this one turned up with a JWS logo on, which I assume confirms R&W had them made for them. Not sure how many machine they actually made themselves but were obviously big resellers of coinop stuff. Wonder who JWS were...

JWS was a company based in Thundersley near Southend in the 1960s. It was owned and operated by my father, John ("Jack") William Stickley. Apart from assembling and testing fruit machines, he designed and built a penny pusher called Push 'Em Off, a Treasure Cave machine and something called Moon Patrol.

I have some old photos that I can post if you'd like to see them.

Is it this one? I have it down as made by E D A Harrison and Son of Clacton-On-Sea in 1967. Any connection?

Edit to say - I see from your earlier post that the pusher your dad designed was this floor-stander.

Welcome and thanks for the great info.
