Re: Deci King reel spin?

Your video gives hope the cycle is running right. It's 5 clicks not 3, and it's doing that. The Horizontal fingers are kicked out by the Vertical fingers, thus releasing the slides. When a Vertical finger enters a hole in the disc, follow it down and you'll see that because it's pivoted half way the...

Re: Deci King reel spin?

Sorry if we've gone through all of this before ...... Have you done a thorough audit of the reel symbols versus pay out discs? And mapped it? What happens if you force pay out combinations like 3 oranges? What stops it, availability of holes on discs? Finger fowling somewhere on disc? Vertical finge...

Re: Deci King reel spin?

I'm wondering if due to wear the pay out disc bundle has moved far enough over to trip some pay outs when they shouldn't.

Re: Long stored Mills mech reels don't spin

I remember being offered a van load of those.
The majority of them had no cash tray, but evidence of originally being mounted in a console type stand.
Also sporting badges that said "Pace". Which as we know was a much abused and altered name up until the late 60s.

Re: Long stored Mills mech reels don't spin

Only the mechs are Mills type. Here's one I moved through the Coventry auction some years back. It was the most basic of case construction and reminiscent of Aristocrat design of that time. IMG_2588a.jpg The single reel looks Tom Boland'ish, except I've found them to be far more decorative in looks....
