Re: Sega Windsor slot

I followed all of the lines and it was good Physics revision from almost 50 years ago. Very enjoyable. However for the less technically minded, here is an alternative method if you are prepared to do it yourself. 1. Unwind the solenoid and measure the length of the wire as 77m. 2. Measure the diamet...

Re: PlentyWin

Another thread where the number of posts doesn't match the number in the index so doesn't flag as 'read'. Hope this post fixes it.

Re: cheap allwin on ebay 260263190679

Actually it did work. well, sort of...
The thread now appears as 'read' but the real number of posts doesn't match the number stated at the top of the page.
