Re: Deci King reel spin?

So we are talking about the right parts here - when you say horizontal payout finger, you are talking about the stack of 6 or 5 horizontal ones that each have a spring at the back? If so, and you say it moves away from the slides, but springs back so it locks the slides after a win. First question, ...

Re: Deci King reel spin?

Ah, I got you, so the sliding locking lever on the other side engages too soon for the slide to deploy. Timing issue... A number of options... I would first have a look at the thread from a few weeks ago. I added some options to increase the time on the timing bar that controls the slide release lev...

Re: Deci King reel spin?

Not sure I have understood the last point, maybe I need to re-read thread. So when you get a Cherry win, the bottom horizontal lever is moving away from the slides and as such the lower slide pays outs, which sounds corrects or have I missed something !PUZZLED!

Re: Harper Vending Machines

Thanks for sharing Claire. Another variant and a lovely example. I love the colour scheme, reminds me of the sort of colours a bus garage would have used. !THUMBS!

Re: Old penny price

Big problem with selling old pennies online is that the shipping cost is so high. When bags of 1200 use to sell, they generally went for between 8p and 12p per coin, but that was the good old days when we had auctions and smaller lots were more expensive .....so 20p seems steep, especially if they a...

Re: Automatic Sports Co. Cricketer at HutchinsonScott

He is right though; a large proportion of early coin op is dull to play. You wonder how operators ever made money. I guess life was much more simple then. :HaHa:

Re: Exacta lock picking

Your photo of The Exacta is too small for my eyes, ears, nose and throat. All I can distinguish is it's missing half of the track that runs the coin from the coin entry down to the gate. If you want to get a lot closer and even take it out of its case we might spot the problem. BP :cool: Looks comp...

Re: Exacta lock picking

Yes, I did consider myself. They wanted the lot cleared, but wanted too much money in my mind. The Clocks were really odd. I love ’60s Perspex stuff, but not sure about them. They looked like the bezels had been bent as well. The other German based Perspex machines just looked too crude to me, so I ...

Re: Hello - New member from West Sussex UK

Welcome Bob, I can’t help you with what was on Worthing pier, but on viewer front, they could have been both British and American variants. There are two members on the site (Coppin and Malcymal) who have shared memories of machines in Worthing pier, if you do a search you will see some of the resul...

Re: Exacta lock picking

Ah, I recognise that machine. Did it come from Bedfordshire?
