Re: Erie Digger Claw Template

Purple, I imagine there could be a major issue here with weight re-distribution as the claw design you've chosen seem to all be made of lightweight pressed sheet metal. By reinventing instead of closely copying I think you might have opened up a can of worms!? I've had a handful of different style c...

I'm sure that is naming the Mills payout pinball shown in the advert, I really doubt a French maker would name a machine after the largest manufacturer in the world at the time!

Re: Earth Satellite

After getting this thing all back together there seems to be only one logical use for the missing flap (A), which is a coin lockout. The flap can only come into contact with the wire running under it from the coin lever to ball release. I've mocked something up and if it's spring loaded it will plac...

Re: BMCo Looping The Falls identified

PM, I imagine that probably isn't the same name as the earlier machines shown since they have more cups. BMCo seemed to have totally unique names for every single playfield variation no matter how small.

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Gameswat: Thanks for your comment but, unfortunately, the whole assembly - not just the end pin - is missing. Ah, so it was just the pin pieces missing as we originally suggested - the way you explained it I thought you had to make the pressed steel armatures they attach to. Glad you figured it out.

Re: Mills / Jubilee reel strips

Since those are Aussie strips you'll be battling to ever find them. I've never even seen that particular variation. But what's the problem, you have all the symbols you need in good order anyway, so a very simple fix to scan and build up the missing strips to print out.

Re: Aristocrat Clubman & Clubmaster

Well to add my two cents worth, equally good and bad news for any potential overseas buyer of this thing. Good - even though it's running on 1 Shilling, that's still the same size of our current 10 cent, so in the eyes of the Aussie law this is highly illegal to own here. and serious Aussie coin-op ...

Re: How to date a Bradley's Challenger?

Good to see you back Jingalong. PM posted something about this years ago relating to the first three digit model code on the serial plate, Challenger model is #200 - and then he noticed a #202 - which I think was a Shooting Star version. On the site somewhere.

Re: 2 Roll-a-Penny boards. Any advice?

Good luck Tammy! !OMFG! I've never had to strip down layers of paint on canvas. There may be an issue with chemicals soaking into the canvas and lifting all the paint. Another method I didn't mention that has been very handy for me is using tape to strip top paint off. I noticed how well this worked...

Re: Removing new paint to reveal old paintwork

Another method I didn't mention that has been very handy for me is using tape to strip top paint off. I noticed how well this worked accidentally years ago on cabinets that had no keys and were shut with packing tape. Sometimes weaker tapes work or you need something stronger like duct tape. Good th...
