Re: Bit of a show off moment!

Very cool! Two questions: can we see the machines on the left side? What tunes you playing on the speakers? :) Thank you and you certainly can; pics attached! Russ Conway, I would hope.

Bit of a show off moment!

!!THUMBSX2!! Hi everyone, well after 6 long years of dithering, I've finally finished my Old Penny Arcade. Most of the work was converting the old market stall and painting the boards with sign writing enamels. The best bits have been tracking down some fun machines and giving them a bit of an mot a...

Re: 30s Pinball

Lovely looking machine. Are they the original type balls? No sadly not, I only had three balls and they're rather grubby yellow marble like ones, so not too sure if they were the originals or not.

Re: 30s Pinball

Thought you'd like to see my sympathetic renovation of a 1930s Genco Spitfire Pintable.

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Surely, it would be more successful if Steve just used the premises as a shop front, like Antique concession stores, whereby sellers drop machines off, a price tag is put on it. Punters come and buy when they like, Steve earns a sellers commission and everyone is happy!!!! I agree completely, this ...
