At the beginning of my project I ordered new cigarette holders for my Around the World pin. I had to replace the wood side rails and now I’m not sure if I like the look with the cigarette holders. What do you think? Yes or no.

Yes. Original.

#3 6 months ago

yes, they look great and are original. Two rights make a right IMO.

#4 6 months ago

I lean toward including it. It is part of the history and original, so I wouldn't not include it because it is cigarettes. I draw the line at cigarette burns on backboxes though, they have to go

#5 6 months ago

Yes.... as long as they are never, ever used.

#6 6 months ago

Yes they are original.

#7 6 months ago

Yes. They look cool and are a great conversation piece.

#8 6 months ago

Yes, they look great.

I say yes but put a no smoking sign next to it

And/or you can put some of these on the holders (or on the rails if you decide not to install the holders).

Of course yes

Let me go have a cigarette and think about it...

Yes.

#13 6 months ago

Cigarette machines and pinball. They used to go together so well when I was in my teens. Deciding whether or not to stick your quarters in a pinball machine or cigarette machine was always a tough decision back in the day.

I have them on a gun game and when I see them I'm reminded of that era.

#15 6 months ago

Yes, cigarette holders were originally on the machine. So please DO install them.

#16 6 months ago

Heck yes! I go to the extreme of using the original, often corroded ones.
They are a reflection of the machines history.

#17 6 months ago

I'm on the fence with this one Jeff. I know it's part of the machines history but I like the look of bare wood and it's far easier to polish when nothings in the way, but yeah, I'd have to agree with everyone else and say yes, put em back on.

#18 6 months ago

Yes, put them on.
At one of the TPF shows I put a fake cigarette in the holder and it was interesting to see people stop and do a double take when walking by!
I even put them on my R&B tribute game.

Gotta have a place to put your smokes!

#20 6 months ago

Install, light up and puff away....

#21 6 months ago

Well I’ve been swayed over to the original look. I installed them with 1/2 long #8 wood screws. Thanks to all.

I hope mine comes out close to yours. It looks great.

been surprised how many people have asked me over the years what they are (on my woodrails)
