Pace Comet on ebay

Postby radiochrissie » Thu Dec 14, 2017 4:49 pm

Anyone see this before it was removed by eBay ? It looks like a vendor but has no knob on the side, also the reel strips don’t look right. Can anyone tell me why a vendor would not have the side knob ?

Is it possible the vendor components were removed by an operator? Presumably, the vendor ruse was not needed to circumvent gambling law in the UK? I suggest this because I have a Watling that was the subject of a Samson conversion and that has a dowel used to fill the hole left when the vendor handle was removed. I am afraid these old eyes are not good enough to see from your photo whether such evidence exists on that machine.

Each play would have unlocked the missing knob. Turning that would dispense a roll of mints and then reset the lock until the next play.

Show us a photo of the inside of the case from the back to the front (with the mech removed) then we can tell you if the JP banks are genuine or merely for show.
Then show us a photo of the mech from the front, so we can point out the JP trips.

If you do that fairly quickly we should get them answered by next year.

Here are some pics. Many thanks for any more info.

Also wondered if the payout card can be reproduced as it's torn. What does the tiny little picture mean in the little window in between the payout cards above the lock?
Would the machine always have had the orange perspex windows? I would prefer to replace with clear etc.
Cheers.

That looks like the wrong mech, looks like a Mills/Sega.

Oh Dear really? Does that also mean it won't operate the jackpot windows or can I adapt?

Looks like a Pace mechanism to me, but I cannot help on the jackpot question though as I have only owned them without.
