Sega Progressive Star electrics

I have a Sega Progressive Star which I am slowly working on but just one question: The electric lead had been cut off prior to my buying this at auction (presume for legal reasons?). I'm happy to dabble with the mechanicals but a bit wary about electrics. Before I investigate further :zapa: is there...

How to date a Bradley's Challenger?

I've put my Challenger on the Market section as I reluctantly have to sell it but realised, belatedly, I have no idea of its age. Are there any clues how to date it, as I'm now curious? I gather the metal instruction plates are a clue as later ones were plastic (?) and the machine number is stamped ...

5 Fruit Flavours Polo Allwin

In case any member is interested in buying this one I've put it in the Market before I try eBay. (I'm mentioning in a "post" as normally items in the market seem to get a brief mention as active topics but this one didn't yet*) I bought it in pretty poor condition (see pic) and have done w...

Re: Shortages having a knock on effect for us?

I still use Allan James (Amicus) - always reasonable, never charged more than £70, and totally reliable with timing. Used Allan 4 times in last 12 months so presume he is still operating? tbh Shipley are a joke

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

Thanks for info grains - there is no reference to a meter on the machine and there are no stars on the reels so I guess this one was converted from the original and new reel strips (they are quite "new" looking) and new blanking plate fitted. So I will leave that part as is and concentrate...

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

Re: Allwin Elevenses ball hitting glass

Hi, jed8. Is the glass fairly loose? It often is, and it may be that putting small wedges (like the little plastic door stoppers, 1 or 2mm or so thick) at the back of the glass would push it far enough forward to clear the rails. If the stoppers are stuck to the wooden frame and not the glass it wou...

Sega Progressive Star coin jam

Topic merged - Site Admin. Hi, all. I recently acquired a Sega Progressive Star as pic. All seems to run well (apart from needing a good clean inside) other than a small problem with the sixpences. First handle pull is fine but on second or third coin the handle locks and the coins jam. Seems to be...
