  1. Hi Daz If you have a Google search for powder coating and where you live something should hopefully pop up. sometimes its car body shop centre, the place I use does loads of wheel alloys, even old fire places! Those frames to be sand blasted and re powder coated should cost no more than Β£30 and it will make your machine like new. Now sleepy old Worcester have two companies, one in Worcester the other I Pershore, so if dinky Pershore can have a powder coater I'm sure you'll have something near by to you πŸ™‚ πŸ‘
  2. Cheers Wayne brilliant πŸ‘ did have a price sent to me the other day πŸ™‚ Some brilliant machines and spare parts, reels decks, coin tubes would love to have bought a load, but travelling up to Blackpool during lockdown wouldnt be so clever πŸ˜” my luck I'll be fined πŸ˜†πŸ™ˆ
  3. Fiesta great machine, I did enquire about this one, but looks like the reel deck is missing is that right Simon? Just trying to make it out from the picture πŸ™‚
  4. Oh ok, but cheers for sharing the pics, some lovely arcade videos there! Hopefully all find a good home πŸ™‚ not sure how you held back Phil, think after an hour there I would of had a call from my bank manager asking if all was OK πŸ˜† and no kitchen and living room space!!!!! Cheers again Phil, just seeing that lonely Tuppenny Chance stood there would of been lovely that πŸ™‚
  5. Wow Phil nice find and thanks for sharing on the mecca your find, wow just wow!!!!! Love the Tuppenny Chance machine, the Phoenix arcade machine too, are you buying anything from the guy? 😲 Some real gems there πŸ™‚
  6. Yep I echo this, it will look like new and is cheap to do too done it on nearly all my machines πŸ™‚
  7. My word Bob it sounds like they have given you the run around!! Who on earth would buy a board like that and also another potentially in the same way....um

    2ps needed

    Sorry this is the geeky side of me popping out, yeah the 1983 2p is actually rare(ish), as in I think 82 the "New" Pence was dropped and changed to "Two", so a fair amount were made but still rare as in 1983 had New Pence on it in error. Yeah ok I'll get my coat, its a new level of sad geeky shit...sorry πŸ˜†πŸ™‚
  9. These look brillant Wayne, the difference it must make! I have a knackered set for my EWN that aren't the best, but then again my glass is shockingly bad and wrong. But new bands would look really nice in it, Tony would love to see your end result πŸ‘πŸ™‚ Cheers Wayne for sharing this πŸ‘
  10. Thanks Dicky for sharing these amazing pictures! Now thats an arcade, not what you get on the sea fronts nowadays, and as said in previous comments everyone young and old playing for fun, not to try and win (and lose) a months wage like they do today. Thanks again for sharing these, it really is how I remember arcades, man I miss decent machines. And more importantly, hope you're feeling better as I imagine it wasn't pleasant! Thanks again Dicky πŸ™‚
  11. Hey Wayne Happy new year mateyπŸ₯³, thanks for the offer again πŸ™‚ Its very temping, but will need a lot of coveting i imagine (coin mech, pay out tube, and gaming roms). It is the version I remember playing too the 2p game πŸ™‚ I'll see how easy it is to do and if its a headache, but really really appreciate the offer you're a star πŸ™‚
  12. Thanks again all, I did do an update but under the wrong thread πŸ˜†πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ You'll see the rough base being made and cut, no where near your skills Wayne but better than it was and now standing on its own lol πŸ™‚ and yes there are allot of very talented and knowledgeable people on here, I see such great rebuilds and great technical threads but wish I could comment on those, but totally lost by it all! I love my machines and they are with me for the long run for sure unless I hit hard times and have to reluctantly sell, but sure will have your name and a few others tagged on them! Warlo
  13. Cheers guys πŸ™‚ Well just wanted to show what other machines distracted me from finishing the EWN Cheers Joe, well thats something I can't say I did (unfortunately!) It was a professional lad on the outskirts of Brum who did it, polishers are really hard to find nowadays, and he did a grand job on the frames and coin tray. I was talking to him about getting them chromed, and he suggested the polishing idea as it has the same affect at a fraction of the cost which was great! Yep I totally agree matey, these machines are harder to find, so spending all the time and effort to resto
  14. Just a few pics of the Copperwin which was a full strip out of absolutely everything, buttons totally apart and cleaned, mechs cleaned all metal repowder coated and the chrome look coated, the frames and coin tray polished, PSU and boards taken out and updated. It was a disaster inside, the lower section had mouse bits in it, so a mess πŸ™ˆ but one of a few fun projects to do, but seeing you totally build a cab from was so so impressive! The finished cab really is just amazing. Even down to the t molding you used, tye stuff I've seen is plastic, you found (go knows how) rubber molding! Ab
  15. Hey Wayne Cheers for the message matey I've only noticed it now πŸ™‚ well NO where near as good as yours!!! I've done the one side (although not the best), and a few other projects have got in the way so yet to finish the other side as also space is an issue too! This year with lockdown meant allot of ebay and Facebook πŸ™ˆ so in June I had a sensible amount of machines which has jumped upto 18 πŸ™ˆπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Anyway heres some pics of the one completed side πŸ˜† Copperwin, Instant Replay and a few others were the chunky projects which I'm super chuffed with how they look πŸ™‚
