Re: Merkur

Yes 10 stop and original strips are similar to Turas with large numbers. Unusual reel stops, similar to Beromat machines with pins and no star wheels and race bearings.

If someone offered me a complete one for £300, I would see if they would take £250 and snap it up..... :cool:

Re: Merkur

I am sure you did a search in this site first before asking as there is a thread on these..... Would not say rare, but not as common as most machines. Yes German and a lot were converted to british coinage when brought in. I love them and have left mine rough and ready !!THUMBSX2!! https://youtu.be/...

Re: Escalators

Yes have come across this many times. Part of the issue is whether incorrect screws are used as the originals will not cause this, although a few of the screws are longer for a reason, like the ones on the reject box cover. Old machines you often see screws badly damaged through repeated maintenance...

Re: Bryans double decker

Interesting, first time I have seen a Bryans Double Decker with brass wheels on the buses. A very tidy machine popped up today on a buy it now on eBay for £1600, which seemed not too bad based on condition.

Re: Jobs Carter large machines sale

I suspect it is on old penny as all their machines were. They use to have tokens made with Carter's name penny sized.

Trying to work out how the Flippa works as in the name. Does it lift the coins upwards? !PUZZLED!
