Re: Jamiesons Skill Poker blown fuse

First thing to do is follow the two blue wires down to the bottom of the cabinet, and see where they go.

Re: Novomat on 3D

It actually takes threepenny bits, rather than three individual pennies.
These are the machines I look out for, never having had the funds to play them until the late '60s, when Crompton's Threepenny Derby came out.
I'm still narrowly avoiding these Wulff types; I know that once I buy the first one...
