Re: Adverts

Yes I agree .This community is made up mostly of people who actually like the machines rather than just for the money (although there will be a few ).If someone sells something that is a wrong'un it is unlikely they will get away with it again. However please don't forget market and auction here.I w...

Re: Payramid not working

Thanks slotalot. Good idea. I'll post some at the weekend, Regards, Speedwell. Arrgee is of course right that the machines are different. If the patent could be posted or emailed I would be very grateful. I appreciate that for a layman it will hard to follow but it is also out of interest. I hope Ar...

Re: Payramid not working

First, thanks for your replies. I really appreciate them. Secondly please forgive anything particularly naive that follows (or in the future and I won't mention it again!) I was a mean player of the Payamid and Retreeva many years ago but only recently started to be interested in their workings. Now...

I suspect I have done something when tinkering but although I've studied the machine and looked at Mel's site I still don't know what I've done and stil...

Re: Are machines getting more expensive?

I agree with all Coin-op says about Bryans and people buy for different reasons. But however bad ebay is (and I think it stinks) it does seem to bring out the ...

Re: Are machines getting more expensive?

First posting but have been following thread. Sega and Bryans prices connected (shock horror!). Newbaby advertises variously on Mel Wrights site as a collector. He may be but deals a lot. Also deals a lot with Topgun who frequently is the under bidder. Have a look under seller for last 15 days. Topg...
