Re: Trouble with Aristocrat reels not releasing

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...

Re: First Machine

The door should be easy enough to make out of wood & a Lowe & Fletcher lock should fit.
I think this seller also has the direction arrows.
Good luck with it, I'm just up the A52, in Derby.

Re: Aristocrat Kingsway

Can you push the reels across, so the payout discs are closer together? If so, you might be able to cure it by putting a washer between the 1st reel & the mech frame.

Re: Shefras Plentywin

The coin tube should be easy to make. You just need a short length of tube of the right diameter for old pennies with a couple of plates welded on. I used 14mm ball bearings in my Jackpot allwin, made by the same company. Backflash looks to be original. As for top flash, give Paul Coppin on here a m...
