Re: Caille Bros. Detroit Ben Hur Slot Machine

Hi katja Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your post. I've had four such machines and have always had to have the machine in front of me to follow the cycle and see what interacts with what. Interestingly each of my machines was slightly different. There should be a strong spring from the bolt in...

Making an allwin coin box door

So yesterday as the temperature outside settled just above the mid 80F I decided to go outside and plane up a bit of oak to make a coin box door for a BMCo. I put on my swimming trunks and toddled out to brave the elements, I was intentionally exposing those parts of me not expected to scare small a...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

To add to TF's observations. Apart from the foreign item (which seems to be a horizontal finger randomly shoved in the comb, I can see the hole for the spring in the end which should be at the back of the mech, not the front). The support arm in pics C & D is gummed up and not travelling to the ...
