Re: Cromptons Tooty Fruity in Hull

Most people move tooty fruity machines by one person lifting at the top box end and one at the bottom, this will snap off the top box as the main part of the machine is very heavy and the weak point the link between the two, instead of moving with a sack trolley in an upright position. The top boxes...

Re: Merchandiser transport

seems like vegasvolt2011, the dodgy ebay couple who dont like it when folks win their auctions at prices they think are too low have been at it again! I just noticed another negative feedback placed by someone else who won their 'pets show band' working model , and didn't manage to get it from them

Re: Electro mechanical Maygay Bingo Club

I seem to remember having a Maygay AWP very similar game to this (but arcade version) and of similar age and the hardest number to achieve in the grid ( usually the centre number) was controlled by a separate jackpot relay that energised the reel hammers whenever that particular symbol hit the winli...

Re: Merchandiser transport

I hear you collected your merchandiser and took your own guys to get it through the window......great result, I bet the sellers had faces like smacked arses as they were expecting you to give up I think! Even though its a bit of a lump you got a great price !!YIPPEE!!

Re: Using token mech to trigger working model

Re: Merchandiser transport

I had the misfortune of dealing with this dubious ebay couple. I spent almost 3 hours at their house looking at their large collection of machines and talking about what was for sale. They were hard work in that they couldnt decide and inspecting what I was interested in in detail as they said machi...
