This three reel tabletop slot machine by Jennings is being expertly restored in our own workshop.
The “Indian Head” is where it all started for our MD’s Father, Reginald. He used to service these machines for the USAF on their British bases in the 1950’s, where they were located in the Sergeants' and Officers' messes. He said the airmen used to rub the head of the Indian with their thumb for luck before every pull of the handle.
We are showing the machine in its unrestored condition and will feature its restoration over the coming weeks. We will bench strip the entire mechanism and give it a nut and bolt restoration throughout. The cabinet will be buffed and polished until the metal gleams, as befits a piece which bears the iconic Indianhead sculpture on the front.
Reginald Waldersmith was far from an avid gambler but he was extremely knowledgeable about the industry. He specialised in ‘one armed bandits’, and they were an essential part of the business that eventually became the Games Room Company. After servicing slot machines and jukeboxes on American airbases after the war, the resultant friendships Reginald made in the US armed forces allowed him to begin shipping them to the UK.
We’ve been selling games tables since 1962, so we know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you on any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
