Re: Reel strip identification

My memory is not infallible but most of the reel strips would look like this: ORANGE CHERRY BELL MELON PLUM LEMON PLUM CHERRY PLUM CHERRY 7 ON ORANGE LEMON PLUM CHERRY ORANGE ORANGE BELL LEMON 7 ON LEMON PLUM BELL PLUM BELL MELON ORANGE CHERRY BELL CHERRY ORANGE PLUM BAR CHERRY LEMON PLUM MELON BELL...

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. 😃

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 ...

Re: From The German .....

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....
