Re: Hundreds don't make thousands

Look at the hundreds score drum... when it reaches the 9 position one of the three switches (top one, I think) makes contact and completes the circuit for the thousand drum to function.
Often the screws holding the switch stack come loose.

Re: Change machine

To make changes you may need to turn off...adjust switches...and turn on again.

Re: Bally 809 bandit

I have had several of these knives break and if I remember correctly every coin uses a different knife, so make sure you get the correct one!

Re: BMCo. "Wizard" pediment graphic

Just had a look at my cloth backed BMCos and I see the paper discs above each win cup actually read "coin return"
I also found paper and glass pediment graphics for "The Favourite" which I no longer need as I am getting rid of most of my slot stuff. If anyone has a need for these drop me a pm

Re: BMCo. "Wizard" pediment graphic

I have a couple of cloth backed BMCo machines and the small discs with win printed on above the win cups are just paper discs stuck to the cloth. They appear to be original.

Re: Bryan's track: what's the alternative to chroming?

Have you looked around for some new strip? I had a quick shifty and saw clickmetal offering new strip in brass or stainless steel in lengths or your choice. You may find just what you need if you search a little.

Re: Removal of the pin in the trigger hammer

Check the pin diameter both ends to see if a taper pin is fitted.
