Description

ALLTECH ARM TEST arcade game. 67 high x 15 wide x 16 deep. Base plate is 19 wide x 35 deep. Case is harvest gold fiber glass. Coin mechanism is a modified ABT bulldog 5cent coin slide. Was found in the 1980s at an indoor flea market. Manager of the flea market owned the machine had it in use. Believed to be manufactured in the 1960s, exact date unknown. Data plate is attached to the mechanism and says Manufactured by ALLTECH INDUSTRIES, INC. Hialeah, Florida U.S.A. Model AT serial no. 106. Similar to the AllTech GripTest, appears to be the same cabinet. There are flyers of the Grip Test around with Mike Munves stamped on them. See the following link httparcadegameflyers.comarcadegameflyersstrengthgamesalltech1960sgripteststrengthtesterarcadegameflyer.htmlOperation The game keeps the score displayed from the previous player. The actuating lever moves freely and is not engaged with the mechanism. A nickel is inserted, trips the engage lever in the mechanism and drops the score to 0. The player can then pull the lever to the left or right. Resistance is provided by a large spring and an automotive shock absorber in the base. As the force provided by the player is increased, the score increases and a bell rings at a preselected point adjustable and again at the highest score possible if achieved.Story given by the person I bought the game from just a story and can not be confirmed Previous owner stated that he bought the game from a large operator in Columbus, Ohio in the 70s. That operator stated that the game was a prototype he received from Mike Munves Co. as a test. It was placed in a bar and later removed because the bar owner said it induced fights among the patrons. He thought that only a few were made and it was probably never in production. It was placed in the flea market and removed after a breakin when the coin box was stolen. I bought this and some other mechanical arcade games from this guy in the 80s. I believe the prototype portion of the story. If you look at the side of the main frame there are several holes drilled in the frame for the mounting of the operating mechanism. It appears that, during construction, the manufacturer moved the mechanism three times to achieve optimum placement. As if this was an early attempt with some trial and error involved.John [email protected] 6529667
