Im like Daniel.. collect anything and everything that's coin operated.. the older and funkier the better. Have a few old gum machines from 1939 and a STONER GUM which I managed to post over from USA just before it got too expensive to even send a stamp from there.. an upright pinball from 1951 that came from Steve Kordek's basement collection.. a few Flip Ball games, gun games.. bowlers etc. My favourite non pinball machine has to be the 1950's peep show machine.. she works apart from the sound ( not easy finding authentic 16mm peep booth films with sound!).. im still working on the amp for this. But you can watch dirty films OK.. my son often drops a coin in..LOL.

Heres one of the "ladies"



Heres the machine and on the left is the upright pinball

WOW that looks so retro Japan. it has to be japanese made right?  that is crazy cool
I bet they looked so futuristic back in the day those cabs

Yep Japan made, they are mostly made of metal as well!

C@@l,
House of the dead, Remember that years ago, was that the 1st arcade machine with a drop curtain in front  ^^^

Its a trigger finger killer that's for sure, when i am serious ill play with one gun but when i want to mix it up ill "john woo" it and play it with both guns at the same time.

there wouldnt be many peep shows around these days you wouldnt think so thats a rare one.

If it takes standard 16mm film I actually know a bloke who has some filthy 16mm porn's and apparently there is a allot of people who actually collect 16mm porn and its pretty pricy to buy a full length porn film.
im not sure why but allot of porn seemed to be on 16mm not 8mm like most other movies for home use were.

so you should be able to find some new clips for it if your son gets bored with the same reel over and over again  %.%

for the amp can you steel some parts from a 16mm projector? they get their sound from a magnetic strip from the side of the film so that strip needs to be good or the reader needs to be good, i have messed around with projectors a few times and some times getting that sound and image to lineup is a pain in the arse.

LOL- I have a guy in US who does private auctions for old peeps how stuff, also included is quite a lot of hardcore from 1920's through to 70's.. this isn't what im after.. its a peep show and so should just not quite satisfy. Films I buy are more the burlesque, non nudity type. Theres a thread on the peep show somewhere.. ill dig it out. Its been a journey to get the projector working.. trying to figure out how a continuous loop works and the final step is getting the sound to work.. im almost there, but I have a modified amp and no circuits to work from.. is all good.. its part of the fun!..BTW - my son is 5.. heres a pic of him getting treated for nits having found a 10c piece and put it through the machine..

I love anything coin op, i have mainly pinball machines, But also the pictured machines from the early 80's , One is a grip tester the other one you place your hand on the machine and it reads your stress level. Other machine is a Taito Super Road 7 from Japan 1970. game now has the original woodgrain steering wheel as pictured in the flyer . One other coin op machine i own is my Aristocrat Poker machine from 1961 .

I guess now you need a vintage stereoscopic 3d peep show, or you already have one  :D

Saw an old weigh scale on an American show the other day. You step on and put in what you think you weigh. When you put in a quarter, the scale weighs you and if your guess was correct, you get your quarter back. Would be good to own one.
If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.
If you don't remember anything,  then read about it here,

I saw one at an antique dealer years ago
thing of beauty it was
it was also $8000

those old gambling trade stimulators were bloody clever devices, they had so many ideas with the result of winning a coin or two, cigar or beer.
It always amazes me how inventive they were to hide them as something like a gumball machine that is really a slot machine and in this case a scale . so they even had scales that paid out  %.%

"Super Grip" Yes a few of my w,anker mates are really good on that machine %.%.. I see DD's has the same "Stress Tester" but different colour scheme. I believe these 2 were a paired together on a tall stand. Have seen The  " Super Grip"  advertised on Amazon  recently, although no longer in stock. ^^^ Great topic ^^^
