Re: Bryans Bumper

Hi Fruit Bowl, even more impressive. What made you use a chain? Did you ever consider making the penny drop the little weight down?

Re: Bryans Bumper

Hi fruitbowl, great job. I don't know how the public would get on with it these days. I understood that the original Bumper you had to thump down to play the game. As PM said, it was too easy to win on and we all heard that there was one on Colwyn Pier up for auction which did not turn up. I am sure...

Re: Bryans Bumper

Great idea, do you have to press the handle down or can you thump it? Is there a connection with the little weight that goes up the scale for the win? Would love to play on it - you will have to put a video of it working on this site. Pete.

Re: Bryans Bumper

Hi great job. I thought about making one a couple of years ago but never got round to it. Have you got any pictures of the works? Would be interested in seeing how it works. Pete.

Re: Auction in Wakefield tomorrow

Hi BP & all, A little story to all our members. Some of you may know Poz, but if you don't, Poz used to go to various shows and parties and used to take a few allwins and bandits about for the kids to play on while he did his magic show. Then Poz brought an old coach which he turned into a play ...

Re: Auction in Wakefield tomorrow

Hi All, I can put my hands up to this machine. I made a run of these about 20 years ago. Great to play with. The one I copied it from had a lot of problems. For instance, when you flicked the penny across, it sometimes stuck between the glass and the thin metal. I made mine out of solid brass. Also ...
