Notes: The owner of the game pictured here provided these comments: The instruction label was glued over an original label. The original label includes a patent, patent date, name and address of company. The patent number is 1894469 dated Feb. 23, 1932. Label states: Electro-Ball Mfg. Co. 120 Camp St. Dallas, Texas. The patent text does not specify an exact means of powering the rotating disc. This particular game is powered by a General Electric A.C. phonograph motor. The motor has an adjustable speed control. It appears that newer wiring was added to the motor assembly, including an on-off switch located on the right side of the cabinet. The patent drawing shaws an on-off switch located at left side front of the game. It appears that modern leg levelers were added to the game.
