Re: What is your dream machine?

I wanted a Aherns Pile Driver that was in Mablethorpe. Rubbish to play but the workmanship was amazing. I would visit it whenever I was in the town but the owner was not interested in selling. The last time I went to see it the owner had died and the machine gone. One of the guys in there said it h...

Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

Looks great! It occurs to me that you could have two painted wooden supports (like 4" x 2") that bolt together at the ends to form a V shape arrangement, projecting out from each front corner of the trailer and out toward the towing ball end and supported with an upright post, meeting at a...

Re: Putting Coinslot archive online

We stand corrected re location of the work. It was however 'missing' for a number of years and only reappeared in its rightful place after publication of the book. Of course no museum curator will admit this but it was definitely the case back then. As 'unassuming' as the Dennison book is it is a r...

Re: Still need a 1p S10 Mechanism

Over the years many of these and the other floor standing Bell Fruit machines have sold and often for very little. The appeal of these is the theme/glass with fighter plane and some may pay for this, but luck of the draw. A colleague of mine had a load of them and other similar machines, knocking t...

Re: Who kept check on the operators ?

Something I’ve been wondering about and, I’m sure some of our older collectors will help me with, is were their ever inspections of the operators and their machines to make sure they were not fiddling the payouts ?

Re: Putting Coinslot archive online

1. Greed/ selfishness- a certain now dead well know collector had misappropriated for himself the wonderful document bequeathed to Sheffield by Dennison’s daughters, as a consequence Nic was unable to refer to this when writing his book and neither was anybody else. Luckily following publication of...

Re: Still need a 1p S10 Mechanism

The S10 Coin Mech Instruction Manual here in Resources explains everything you need to know. The good thing with an S10 is that you can see every movement of the coin as it passes through the mech and see where it's getting stuck and which bit needs slight adjustment. The bad thing is all of the var...
