Re: Payout slides Removal and replacement

Many thanks Treefrog.
Is there anywhere this side of the pond to get new springs? Just figured it would make sense to change them, however if it's a case of waiting months for delivery from the US then may just clean up the ones in there.

Any recommendations from the experts above on where to go to get a decent re-plate nowadays?

Re: Jennings Governor... Price?

Not sure what 5p you are talking about, but the jackpot is full of old shillings, same as escalator, unless this is not the same machine...... You know... you're right... I had looked fairly closely and thought it was on the newer smaller 5p - Hadn't seen that in fact it's the older 5p in use :o It...
