Re: Sega Mad Money payout fingers

I have to find them first! They might be at my brother's house. On the other hand... they might not. If you are local, no problem. I live in Hedge End (SO30) I don't run a car any more as I am now retired.

Examine the rejector. Maybe the pin that detects the coin needs adjustment.
Examinez le rejeteur. Peut-être que la broche qui détecte la pièce doit être ajustée.

Re: Hello

Whilst we are on the subject of reducing payouts, another classic operator adjustment was to attach vertical metal rod or screw through the rear top of the slidestack coverplate. One that I found was a screwed-on "slug" on the 1st reel 20 tooth cog. It stopped the BAR symbol from appearin...

Re: Sega Mad Money payout fingers

Thanks, A couple of the fingers have had a bit cut out. I think solder will be the way to go. I hope it holds. If you are still looking, I might be able to dig some up. These fingers are 2 mm thickness and fit both slots in the grid at the top. Years ago, there were 2 thicknesses. Most fingers were...

Re: Machine ID unknown

The hardware definitely looks like BM Co. Treefrog's example looks complete as opposed to Chris's, which is missing the small arm on the top right side, intended to stop the ball rocketing off the circular rails. This slows down the ball and allows for a controlled roll down the two slant rails bef...

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

If you have the stars combined on the reel tapes (lemon - orange - bar) it is the "CS" (combined star) setup. If you have the stars printed individually on the reels it is the "IS" (independent star) setup with a rings around each star. The stars on mine pay another jackpot. I fo...

Re: Help make my reel spin faster

Hi, Mark. I bought a Sega jackpot mech from you in August 2013 and it is working perfectly. I hope you have sorted out your reel problems by now. One thing I suspected was the reel brakes might have been screwed down too much. That adjustment is the easiest.
Good luck. 😃

Bear in mind that the wiring on these machines could be 50 to 55 years old and it might be a choice between LEDs, fuses blowing, or something catching fire! :-(

Good to see someone else doesn't like the vertical stripe!
The stripe went out of fashion around 1963. My Progressive Star (August 1963) looks similar to your repainted case. My case also needs a revamp. Don't store slot machines for more than a month in the bathroom!

Re: Sega Progressive Star Missing Meter and Linkages

The meter was taken out of use because it could not pay 100 coins plus the meter reading. The gaming laws dictated that all awards must be paid by the machine. Prior to that, you could claim it from the bar staff and the meter would be set to zero. The meter linkage was missing on mine but I fitted ...

I have seen similar drivel appear on the TV subtitles. English is about 90% accurate, French is about 80% accurate but Welsh and German don't make much sense. Quite often the subtitles state: "They speak in their own language" or if you are lucky, you will see: "Translation" fol...

I copied the images above and zoomed them up to see the small details but there was no rear view. Unfortunately, the innards look different in several places so there must have been several improvements made in the post war years.

Re: Coronavirus invades our hobby!

Don't panic! I remember panic buying in 1974 when inflation was rising like a rocket. Some shop keepers would jack their prices up on certain groceries and tell the customers that "there's a shortage" and the next thing that happened would be an avalanche of shoppers clearing the shelves....
