Re: Early Christmas gift for myself

Thank you so much dutchboy these are perfect. Hope you haven't done too much lifting! I must be getting old as I can't lift a complete machine these days. I have seperate the hood and the mechanism to move it about. That mechanism looks very nice indeed, I have a mech but the reel bundle is bit of a...

Re: Early christmas gift for myself

A nice find Dutchboy and a great Christmas gift for yourself. !!THUMBSX2!! Please would you be able to post a few pictures of the mechanism and inside the cabinet if you could? The colours are a bit different to the usual black/red or red/white but there's plenty of options to repaint if you don't l...

Re: Sega Monaco restoration

I really like the Progressive Star with the white top and hope one day to add one to the collection but I guess these are quite rare.
Those are great colours on the Monaco Starlet thanks Treefrog I will use those on the next Sega project which is a Bonanza Star. !!THUMBSX2!!

Re: Sega Monaco restoration

Thank you Treefrog and Brigham I have been trying a few different finishes over the past few months here's one without stripes. Possibly not to everyone's taste but it does have nice chrome. Sometimes I think less can be more.

Sega Monaco restoration

Post split from Sega Monaco instruction sheet - Site Admin.

After the kind help from Treefrog and Badpenny I thought it was time to post a few of pictures of the Monaco project.
The cabinet is nearly complete now so will be starting on the mech very soon.

Thanks again

Re: Sega Athletic Scale

A Sega Athletic Scale was one the items featured on yesterday's episode of Find It Fix It Flog It on Channel 4. I think the owner said it was from Blackpool Pleasure Beach. They seemed to do a nice job tidying it up and re-painiting it. I won't reveal the final value in case anyone wants to watch it.

Re: Charrington / Mills Bandit

Shame there were no keys available for the backdoor so we couldn't get a view of the mech or the inside of the case. Is it just Sega that made the Hi-top upper castings without central the recess for the logo or did Mills also produce this type? I liked the domed metal scratch plate above the award ...

Re: Charrington / Mills Bandit

Pretty sure Charrington was part of Bass Breweries and there appears to be a Toby Jug logo in the Jackpot Window so this may have been branded or converted for the brewery.

Re: Mills Hi-top

Saw that and never noticed the Tura mechanism in it as they look very similar to an old 10 stop Mills machine. This machine, like many, is a conversation back in that day and not a factory Mills machine. Coin entry on right, ply cabinet etc... Maybe even castings are copies. At the end of the day i...
