Re: Help... Mills reel strip and rebuild

I have followed the great post showing alignment which has been completed. The problem is that even with the reels aligned with payout holes, the brake cogs do not line up with the brake lever blocks. It’s almost impossible to get all the symbols to line up with the payout window and one brake block...

Re: help...mills reel strip and rebuild

Thanks for the link. I have had a look but I think I am in deeper than this. 🤦‍♂️

The brake cogs on each reel do not line up with the brake blocks. The cogs appear to have a slotted adjuster. They also have a pin on one side but it’s all a bit messy. I will post some pictures tomorrow.

Can anyone point me in the direction of either a video clip or further information on how to strip and rebuild the reel assembly for a Mills machine.

Re: Replacement glass recommendations

Finally sorted the glass. I have two pages of laminated glass coming tomorrow. Total price £28. I will fit them and post pics once completed.😀 I have been looking forward to starting work on my Brenner ball past the arrow but without glass my balls drop out “oh matron!” :HaHa:

Re: Novomat on 3D

It is interesting I have noticed that Gunter Wulff machines seem to be attaining much higher prices recently and not just a one off auction bid war. Looking at the Elephant results there has been a growing upward price trend. A couple at a local auction to me recently got into the late 300s and the...

Re: Novomat on 3D

Many thanks, as always. I think you are right. I will list it for sale on here and see what happens. The machine is very clean inside and seems to work correctly from the tests I have made today.

Novomat on 3D

Hi folks, This particular machine has come with a collection of others I have recently purchased. It does not fit with the rest of the collection as it runs on three pennies and all my other machines run on old one penny. First question, can it easily be converted to old penny? Second question, if n...

Just replaced the glass in an allwin I have. 6mm toughened, cost £6 from my local glass place.
My local glass merchant has just quoted me for two panes of glass in 6 mm toughened and it’s £40!

Replacement glass recommendations

Topic moved - Site Admin.

Hi folks,

I have a couple of machines, a Brenner and an Oliver Whales that need replacement glass.

What is the best option ? Toughened glass or laminated glass?

Thanks Paul
