Re: Advice for a new collector

It was suggested at the time that this may be Ruffler and Walker that did the reel strips. Would this mean that the machine was made in the U.S.A and then imported here to the UK?... or would it be that the reel strips were changed at some point in its lifetime! The machine must have been made in t...

Re: Useful metallic spray paints

Useful metallic spray paints

I've just finished this Exacta and while working on it I tried a new spray paint that seems to work very well. exacta1.jpg exacta2.jpg It seems to me that the gold edging on Wullf machines, once tarnished, is almost impossible to restore, so I tried a hi-res metallic spray paint I recently found in,...

Re: "The Jockey"

I got more info and better photos from the owner and now it's clear it's a trade stimulator from the early 40s, a copy of an earlier machine called 'Steeplechase'. It spent its working life in a barber shop.
