Re: Reels don't appear to be lining up for payout.

Check to see if there's a 'bug' on the star wheel.

Re: Reels don't appear to be lining up for payout.

Loosen the bolts that clamp the reels to their shafts, then set a jackpot up on the discs and let the machine finish its cycle. You should then be able to line the reels up for the jackpot, say 4 bars, clamp the bolts back up and it should be OK. You may find that one of the reels has more than one ...

Re: You be the Judge

Meanwhile over in Derby, an auction house run by a well known TV antiques personality has started "suggesting" that your lot was such a speciality subject that they had to market it in relevant websites and periodicals in order to raise any interest. Therefore your share of the cost is £X...

Re: You be the Judge

I had the same, a few years ago. I bought an electromechanical wall machine, at the auction it was plugged in so people could test it. I didn't, because I'd forgot to bring any pennies with me. On getting it home, I found the switch that the coin activates to start the machine had had the wire form ...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

What’s the best way of freeing the rusty steel rods and bits from the alloy it sits in without smashing it all? It's all a bit sad really. Wouldn't normally recommend Halfords for anything, but get some of this, it's really good. https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-and-fluids/lubricating-...

Re: Trouble with Aristocrat reels not releasing

Have the springs on the payout fingers been replaced? Sometimes they are a bit too strong. Remove 2 or 3, then try again.

Re: Hello from South of France

Hi Gastoon. Here's a pic of what you have missing. The spring should be easy enough to source, and the pawl for the ratchet doesn't really affect game play; it's just to stop people turning the win knob back & forth to get multiple coins. Also, it looks like your coin slide might have been insta...

Re: Help needed for Rondo machine

The type of rectifier fitted to your machine is a Selenium Rectifier. By all means test it. You might be lucky and it may still be working OK, but with age they do tend to deteriorate and become unreliable, in which case you could fit a replacement silicon rectifier in its place. The wiring shown i...
