Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

Can you confirm that the first steel plate that when rotated through all 20 positions only has one hole that aligns in front of the three bars vertical payout lever position? When I say this, I mean regardless of the reelstrip combination shown on the reels. When you cycle the mechanism and manually...

Re: Silver Jubilee

Nobody rang the number yet to see if anyone answers it?

The telephone number blanks off usual 777 and mystery payout spaces on the award card. If we see a pic of the mech out of the cabinet it will answer if 777 gold award mech parts are present/removed or just replaced by another mech.

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

If you look at the vertical pay out fingers in their frame, scanning left to right, e.g. from front of the mechanism to the rear, I would think vertical payout fingers operate the following: Bars, Melons, Bell, Plum, Feature, Oranges, Feature, Cherry. However, I'm a little puzzled over a couple of a...

Re: Electro-mechanical Wall Machines

1960s on site, wouldn't that plastic dome have been full of cig burns in a couple of weeks, or worse still, a burn hole then they stop the lever on 6d or shilling till the hopper emptied? I stumble upon your videos from time to time coinop, probably seen most of them now. Never left a comment, I'm n...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

How many bars and melons on each reel strip are there? Makes life lot easier if just 1 bar and 1 melon on each strip. By the way, if you remove the coin tube, when replacing it, make sure you reinsert the rake off lever. This is the L shaped lever that pokes through the slit or hole at the rear top ...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Restoration

From your pictures I think the rear casting (backbonnet) is also missing its backstrap. This strap runs along the flat section of the backbonnet and is attached by four rivets. The missing metal back door slides under this backstrap. Here's an image to show. It's off a Mills version Hightop but show...

Re: Jubilee Riviera chrome

Over the years, for varying reasons at the time, I have tried all the methods discussed in this thread, on this model. It's not an easy job, regardless of which methods you use and as you say, results can be at best mixed. I see you removed the 3 stars that pays £1 glass? Is this because it had all ...
