Re: New member from the Netherlands

Looks the same to me. It is a Multi Bell, just with no escalator. I assume they fitted a S10 in it like Windsors. As mentioned, every person who has joined here has asked for documents. Always fancied the Hi Top versions. They did a 4 reeler, but the looms of cables of relays put me off. Looks a tid...

Re: Bryans Fruit Bowl instructions needed

I found a number, tiny and on the top end of one of the support posts, but the frame number does not match the cabinet which 106, and this is 162. I guess a mix match, but both earlier numbers. The size is similar to what is stamped in front casting.

Re: New member from the Netherlands

Welcome And Aristomatic you must be bloody psychic to know he had this machine before joking :o All the flyers are online.

Re: Ripplers: repro & real

I bought one a number of years ago from Reeman Dansie and sold on at a loss at Coventry, but that is the next nearest auction, again all different.....I am surprised how much people still bid to be honest, not the most thrilling game :woops:

Re: Ripplers: repro & real

Over the years, the continued appearance of repro Ripplers has gone by unnoticed, but I saw another one sold today at the same place (Manders Auctions) I bought my Fruit Bowl for just under £400, but what is odd is three other versions sold at the same auction house since 2019, the previous in Febru...

Bryans Fruit Bowl instructions needed

So today I bought my first machine in a year @&@ the Bryans Fruitbowl as seen on the Salesroom. Was local to me and I was able to view, a true barn find with a pile of mouse items inside. When I got home I managed to get the cash drawer open to find a huge stash of old chestnuts, the mouse must ...
