Re: Need help with Peerless viewer

You asked about a manual and I've never heard of one existing. There is a flyer and I have a copy, but the original belongs to a friend and he plans to publish sometime so I can't. It only shows similar to my photos in the link: Re: Coin operated stereo viewers . My machine is long gone though, so I...

Re: Oliver Whales?

Ahh, the good old days of machine collecting JP, getting paid by your wife into one hand to make this lot go away, only to hand the cash back to you minutes later to "purchase" them, and everyone walked happy...... :HaHa:

Re: Oliver whales ???

Yes Wales that was revamped later on and almost certainly sold in the early 1970s by Jim Broderick to be retailed from the Akron chain of import stores in California. John Peterson sold me a bunch of these all done by the same hand as this. You'll be able to get close to the original model, as the p...

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

Tall - well that was a heavy handed way to alter the income! And this being a game with so much built in adjustment to move those rods and change most of the column sizes. Those two bent arms would be very fiddly pieces to bend and fold being so long and skinny so either make them up using bar stock...

The two end pins have been hacksawn off in place. But simple enough to replace as just a piece of rod with small bit of thread on the end. You could just cut up a couple suitable bolts to be lazy.

Re: GIRLS and FLEAS

I think you'll have much a greater chance of information on it's whereabouts by posting on a US forum Roger. Looking at the B&L logo font and style of the case this dates well into the deco era, so late 1920's or 30's. The much earlier Caille Bros marquee circa 1906 and used on machines such as ...

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

Nice lateral thinking PM, but I've had the door off What's My Line for weeks now and that coin chute isn't proud of the rest of the mech in any way, so I have laid it on its back on the floor with no prob. And those springs would only work with knocking it in that one direction from the back. The br...

Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Topic split & moved from Ruffler & Walker Allwin List - Site Admin. For what possible reason do the giant R&W allwins use these spring loaded coin chutes? Earth Satellite and What's my Line have different mechs but they both use the same coin chutes with exact same spacing. Seems they c...
