I worked for Bell Fruit in Birmingham, from 1980-82, as a workshop engineer. They were still operating electros in those days, as well as the early MPU machines. They were also buying machines from JPM, Barcrest and others, as well as videos - Space Invaders, Sting, Galaxian, etc.
I loved it, but I ended up leaving after they relocated to Bilston, near Wolverhampton, and my 14 mile round trip commute became 60 miles. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford to keep doing it on what they paid me. The service engineers were on more than double what I was getting, plus a car. I did ask about transferring, but I was only 19 and I think they thought I was too young.
Anyway, after doing a TOPS course in computer engineering, there didn't seem to be many openings in that field, so I applied for two service engineers jobs with different amusement companies and was offered both of them. I joined MAM Inn Play in 1983 but then got a job with a computer company at the beginning of '85, bringing my career in amusements to an end.
