Re: Best old penny arcades in UK?

Hello,
The Anderton Boat Lift is open, as far as I can be certain, from Friday to Monday. The hours are 10.00 am to 3.00 pm, all due to the dreaded Covid-19.
I think next year also will be a challenge to every event - worst luck!!
All the best from Neale.

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian pull effort

Hello,
I've adjusted the dog and anvil ,which sounds like a pub name ! all now seems to be working O.K. the pull now needed is about 15 lbs which is much less than before, the reels spin O.K. and it pays out.
Many thanks from Neale.

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian pull effort

Hello, The amount of pull needed hasn't changed much since I bought the Arcadian quite a few months ago (I didn't check the poundage required when I got the machine). It wasn't in the best of health when I got the machine, but with much help from a number of fellow enthusiasts on the forum it's now ...

Aristocrat Arcadian pull effort

Hello, I hope someone has an idea of the correct poundage pull required for my Aristocrat Arcadian. It seems not too bad to me at about 24 lbs, but the Boss thinks it's a bit heavy. One reel (usually the reel furthest to the right) will occasionally spin very slowly and sometimes it will go backward...

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian

Thanks again to all for your helpful replies. I have now (as suggested) held the horizontal fingers back and cycled to see if the slides go all the way back - yes they do! But, they don't pay out! I pulled out the very bottom large slide with the 32 mm diameter hole, the one that sticks out from the...

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian

Thank you for your quick replies, I have checked for jammed coins in the slides etc., also I checked (as suggested). I spin the wheels and they stop in turn from the left to the right, then another clank noise as the vertical fingers travel to the discs, then a final clank as the slides are released...

Re: Advice and help

Hello, I've just had a proper look at the payout slides (photos B & C). There are 4, not 3, as I first thought, and there appears to be a thin slide beneath the others and it is connected to a weak spring under the other springs (photo A). It has a large hole in the middle - but due to lack of space...
