    Reel Band Production

    Looking quite promising now.

    Maygay epoch Training Video

    Can't remember if it was in a clear out or if I bought it a long while ago. Never had the means to play it or convert it, Rich offered.

    Didn't think it would be on the cheap side.

    Reel Band Production

    Many places have moved from screen print to digital printing... if you get a set of bands from say a new Reflex machine, you can tell these are cheaply digi printed at low resolution, probably for cost. As you are well aware the old bands were screen printed and would need a separate pass / screen for each individual colour plus maybe a varnish. It is a complex process with negatives and developing images on the screens So many bands would be printed on a sheet and then possibly cut on a flat bed die cutter or clamshell cutter. These require tooling (a forme), expensive tooling. Hopefully they may be able to rotary guillotine them or something similar. This method is just a matter of setting guides and blades to the correct dimensions and hopefully much cheaper.

    Price of these will be interesting. If they screen print them, there is a lot of work involved, just in the printing without tooling for cutting.

    50p payouts

    Probably more software related than hardware. Either a rom revision which is incorporating 50p payout units or this may be selectable via the mpu4 dip switches.

    Pcb laqueur

    Pcb solder resist. Cheap and unreliable stuff from Ebay. Decent stuff from Rs or Farnell. Also need a UV light to cure it or a day / couple of days sat in strong sunlight.

    JPM, my view from the inside. Frank Bird.

    The guy 3rd from the left (Ron Watts) has an uncanny look of Mark Webber, the Aussie Ex F1 driver.

    Ok, my guess, 2nd in from the right is Mr Bird?

    Cloud 999 reel symbols required

    Just a quick one. Did you Photoshop the Cloud out for the unclouded 9's ? If so, it looks like they are too far over to the right (as on the clouds, which they should be), the unclouded 9's are central to the other reel symbols i think on the machine. Just my OCD. Hope you get what i mean and thanks for this.

    Up and coming op clearout!

    Ok, good luck with your quest. Possibly think Rich is right with talking an offer of clearing everything at once. (As I said previously, i have had a few clearances where all has had to be taken although there a a few more whole machines here which may bring a few more quid if they all work). It just depends on whether the owner just wants everything clearing and doesn't have a price in mind, in other words happy to get whatever for it but get rid in one go.

    Up and coming op clearout!

    Had a few clearouts like this, usually it was someone who has bought or inherited the building etc and just really wants all the junk moving out with no cost to themselves. Machines are difficult to move on, especially without getting a single licence for each of them. Spares are hit and miss as most cannot be tested, buyers whinge that whatever they have bought doesn't work, unless it is sold for a lot less as spares or repair. Time and effort is spent on postage/packing etc if items are sold individually. Don't have a clue about jukeboxes. If 100% working and undamaged, i reckon they may be worth a bit of cash. Storage of lots of junk can be expensive, especially if you have to rent somewhere or rent container storage. If you can sell the machines, fully working, privately, it is worth a punt as there is profit there alone. You say:- "So far an offer has been made of £500 to clear the lot. I'm in 2 minds to put 2 job lots on Ebay one for jukes other for fruits?" Is it you that is selling these "items" and want them clearing? As it sounds like they are yours to sell if you are thinking of splitting into lots. I guess another party has offered £500 to clear the lot, if you are not the seller, the seller may take the £500 just to have the place cleared as there is a few van loads with a small tranny van, maybe less with a Luton and i guess they don't want to fanny around letting people cherry pick, they just want the place clearing. Interesting to see how these things pan out.

    Bell Fruit buying used cabinets?

    I think they stopped buying second hand cans a long while back now. Maybe I am wrong?
