Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

Looks like it will be great addition to the Temple's Penny Arcade Paul.
I can't wait to see it fully painted with the new machines installed.
Wishing you the very best of success for 2024.

Re: Sega Diamond 3 Star Jackpot Mechanism

The 50p shape Sega Special Award Token are the ones that are in used in my machine.
The token unit usually holds 3 or 4 of these. I will check if I have some spares for you.

Re: Sega Diamond 3 Star

Well there's your answer then, Aristo has one the same. Any more info on that one? Possibly a late model; guess they recast the front case; possible the moulds were worn out or they wanted a case with no top box holes. Funny how dumpy they look with no top box. Looks like you got a rare model, urba...

Sega Keys

I found a couple of Sega keys which are a different "V" shaped profile to the snake keys and wondered if anyone has seen this type before, were they used on bandits or amusement machines?

Re: Bad chrome

I have tried a few options with glass bead blasting but if the existing finish is chrome then glass bead blasting is unlikely to be strong enough at low pressure to remove the chrome or base layers of plating. Sand blasting at higher pressure will remove the plating but this leaves the casting with ...

Re: Does anyone have pics of the Brenco Mystery Arrow?

Instone & Ashby Slough made the Lucky Devil, Money Matador etc. which were conversions for Light Ups and Hi Tops as a work around when the 10 coin max payout law was introduced. Later the company marketed the Buckingham and other models which I believe uses a Sega made cabinet. The glass has the...

Re: Apex machine reel strips

I haven't seen an Apex before and it looks an interesting machine. Are the holes drilled in the upper casting for illumination? It appears to have mains cable routed from the back of the bonnet which also lots of holes maybe for ventilation?

I bought a Governor a year or two ago and left it with friend who got the original electrics working again. Last week he brought it back and I noticed there was a label inside the case with the serial number that matches the number stamped on the side and also on the back of the mech. The label is s...

Re: Sega Mad Money Windsor payout chute hopper

Here's a couple of images of the tube / header.
Not sure if these were originally one part and subsequently modified by operators if the coinage changed.
This one has a 1p tube and looks narrower diameter than the one you need.

Re: Sega Clover Bell & Blackjack

I think they vend gum, rather than pay out coins which happens on a Mini Sega etc.
The last coin played can be viewed in a window at the side of the case before it drops into the cashbox.

Re: Reel Mech Query

Treefrog is correct. My Mills Hi Top pays 10 coins for 777 anywhere in the window. This is triggered from a payout finger rather than the Gold Award Trip mounted on the Anti Reverse Lever.

Re: Shefras Escalator problems

I think your escalator is actually a late Sega version rather than a Shefras. I had one of these in a Sega Light Up.
Here is a thread below which hopefully will be of use to confirm the model of escalator.
