I've had a number of people contact me over the last couple of months asking if i restore old poker machines. I HAVE repaired a couple of them in the past but i won't touch them now and have copied the news article link from the first post to my facebook page.


I was called last week by someone from Victoria wanting a couple restored.. told him sorry but NO i wont touch them  *.* *.*
He said someone down that way passed on my details to him, someone here on AP i'm guessing. Whoever it was thanks for the recommendation but no i won't be going there  *.* *.*  Bit of a shame really these stupid laws exist as i kind of would've liked to be able to do them. BTW i had yet another call just on Sunday morning by a local guy wanting one repaired.. DAMN!!


It seems these laws don't exist in America, if you watch American Restoration, they restore them!



That was me. I receive at least a call a fortnight on "One armed bandits". I referred the customer to you Mitch. But it looks bad for people who want them restored. All you need is one of the customers to be from the gaming squad or similar and you could be in real trouble !

Strange thing is that all the calls I'm getting are from Victorians that bought the games from NSW. They were operated in NSW.

that because before Crown Casino, Victoria  did not have gambking machines

Thought it might've been you Nino  *%*   thanks for the referral though  ^^^  but i won't be doing any restores on pokies, and yes thats a good point you made about someone from the gaming squad pretending to be a customer! That can of worms can remain well and truly CLOSED!!  *%* *%*
