Re: New Sega Copper resto help with payout

The paintwork looks pretty good and I would be tempted to simply retouch the missing paintwork. It would be a shame to repaint if it isn't necessary.

Re: Jubilee Riviera Arm Return

Many bandits use this type of piston to 'damp' the return spring. They usually consist of a cupped leather washer inside a tube but as the leather dries out, they become ineffective. Take the piston apart, give it a good clean internally and apply glycerine to the leather washer. Don't be tempted to...

Re: G'day Aussie newbie. Nutt and muddle model?

No experience of this machine either. The only advice I can give is to trace the voltages with a multimeter looking for blown fuses, shorts etc. BUT be very careful around mains voltages :shock: Old electrolytic capacitors are the main culprits for failures, so check to see if any show signs of burn...

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Thanks guys. It should make it more fun to play but I can't put it back together until my chrome plating comes back.

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

I've been inspired by the great restoration work of you guys and decided to try my hand at making some new end pins for my 'Many Happy Returns' machine. I'm quite pleased with the result, considering I don't have access to a lathe.

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

I always look carefully at photos of the MHR machines now and most seem to have the end pins removed. It's just more fun to win more often when it's your machine but I do understand why the operators did it. There is a bias towards the end columns, just like there is in many Alwins, making payouts (...

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Gameswat: Thanks for your comment but, unfortunately, the whole assembly - not just the end pin - is missing. When I have time I will get round to taking the assembly apart and seeing if I can get the missing parts remade. Failing that, I think I can make it up with a spacer and a threaded bar but I...

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Well, well - that is a surprise. It would be interesting to know which came first; spring loaded or simple spacer. I can't find anything like a serial number so I can't think how we would work that out. :-( Does yours have then end pins on the columns where the balls collect? My machine has had them...

Re: Why spring loaded coin chutes on R&W allwins?

Looks like R&W decided it wasn't a good idea. The photo shows a coin chute from a 'Many Happy Returns' machine. Same mechanism but simply mounted on a spacer.
