Re: Tinnie Mutoscope bevel gear

Thanks for your suggestions. I will dig out an old drill brace - could be lucky and find that the gears are a match. Failing that, I will try the epoxy putty trick. I have used this when repairing the castings on my clutching hand machine, but it was a non moving part. I will also loctite some small...

Tinnie Mutoscope bevel gear

I have a tinnie Mutoscope and the bevel gear that drives the coin chute mechanism has broken a tooth. The bevel gear has 21 teeth and measures 1.43” (36.31mm) at the biggest diameter. I have been unsuccessful in obtaining an off the shelf replacement. I could get it re-manufactured or possibly I cou...

Genco Hoops - and ideas?

Topic merged - Site Admin. Can anybody help me please? I'm restoring a Genco Hoops machine that's in a poor state. The mechanism to flick the ball is a bit Heath Robinson. When the handle is struck it pushes the ball delivery arm up, but the handle travel is limited to 35mm and I assume relies on t...

Re: Machine lighting

I'm not a electrician but here goes - Some years ago I had a problem with the small strip fluros when renovating my juke box. I replaced the starters with FS-U, 4 -80Watt starters (typical large size fluro tube startes) that in theory should have worked, but didn't. I was advised to use S2, 4 - 22Wa...

Re: Penny Pusher - help needed

Thanks everyone for the suggestions and information - makes interesting reading.

My tip of the day - don't use a blow torch to strip paint off whilst in the vicinity of the washing hanging up to dry. The blackened tea towel took some explaining!!

Mini-Pusher, Aladdin's Lamp & Davey Jones' Locker

My next project is to restore this Penny Pusher. I have 3 questions for the experts out there and would be grateful for your help and advice: 1. Does anyone know the maker of this machine and when it was made? 2. The 'penny distribution' panel / chute is missing so I need to re-make it. Does anyone ...

R&W Ice Hockey - Instructions needed

I have just completed restoration of a Ruffler & Walker ice hockey player. Does anyone know if they originally came with instructions inside the table (as you get with pinball machines). If so, can anyone provide me with an image of the original instructions, so I can reproduce them to make the mach...

Re: Snap

Malc - thanks for your input. The machine is bigger than a bar top - it's about the size of a standard Allwin, but double the depth. Yes, it does run on old pennies. The vendor was asking £350!!!!

Does anyone have any clues on the top - flash or light that is missing?

Thanks
