Re: Wonders Feast

Maybe Dave just uses the Elephant House name as his ebay ID. I'm not sure you can change your name on there without a lot of fuss and bother! Oh...and the Double Six is now up to £850!! I've got one of those in the shed awaiting paint removal... I shall have to get my skates on! !!ESCAPE!!

Re: Wonders Feast

I "Wondered" when somebody would mention these! The Win And Place is most definitely a Wonders but may be badged up as a Ruffler & Walker as they distributed many makes of machine. The other two aren't as commonplace so should fetch a pretty penny! Saying that, they're being beaten by ...

Re: See Saw allwin

Evening, Chaps! Glad you like it as I did too when I first saw it almost a year ago. I'm not looking to sell at the moment as I'd like to clean it up a bit first. There is a bit of dead worm hole in the ply mech board but it was treated years ago and hasn't degraded the ply. I've had a quick play an...

See Saw allwin

Hi all... just acquired a batch of allwins from a collector that has owned them for at least 30 years. I recognise them all bar this one and wondered if anybody has seen one before?

Shame about that Trickler, Jingle! Mind you, a jackpot allwin sold at Kempton yesterday for £550 so I hoped you snapped it up?? Wasn't you selling it on was it??

Re: Bradley Challenger - High Price!

I seem to remember one going quite cheaply at Salisbury a few years back and I wished I'd bid on it.

Re: Nostalgic parts

Nostalgic Machines are modelled on Oliver Whales machines. The company is run by Nigel Crew who I have always found to be a very friendly and helpful chap. He usually has some old machines too so possibly could help with original parts.

Good luck with your restorations!
