Re: Jentzsch & Meerz Simplex catcher

Nice machine !!THUMBSX2!!

I notice that most of these machines had three operating knobs for ball lifting, shield movement and payout. This one has two. Is it autopay for cigarettes and is it single cigarettes, or the whole 5 pack item?

Re: Helicopter Race

Thanks for sharing and nice job made. Good to see how they were made up. Probably will keep my wooden ones as never found a model suitable and suspect they had these made for them. Looks like the floats are wood on the originals as well.... !!THUMBSX2!!

Re: Sega Bell Hi-top reserve jackpot help

The reset bar is needed for resetting both the main jackpot and the reserve, so it is needed after a jackpot trip.

Re: Why are some bandits so complicated?

Is complexity just not what you’re use to. Also I believe German machines are far better engineered, than the crude American based 3 reelers. Also the German machines were designed for a few years not 70 and they still survive... Video was a bit long winded, I fell asleep after 30 seconds even when ...
