Re: Allwins

followup: the payout levers seem to work fine now, perhaps just some old cobwebs needed to be shaken out. But now sometimes the payouts aren't quite 1 coin per ball, so I might have to look into that. Are thin coins a common problem with payout mechs like these? my writeup: http://pinballnovice.blog...

Re: Niche Collections
