Re: Novomat on 3D

I would not try to convert. I probably have bits to except the to Novomat casting coin entry which were cut to support the big penny. I would sell and buy a penny machine, a lot easier. I like the dark border veneer on the front... Value, who knows...? Today two machines sold for silly money at auct...

Re: Eastbourne auction

Sorry JC, 10 years ago I got shot down many times for publishing up coming auctions and now I am like everyone else, hoping I am the only one who has seen them. I was very tempted with the BMco and penny flick machines, but was very cautious given the mistakes I have made in the past with locked mac...

Eastbourne auction

Thought I would post a summary of today’s auction in Eastbourne. With 16 lots of “in need of love” condition. I decided to go down as no way would I bid online without looking at this lot. Only two other people in the room bought machines and most sold online, I hope they viewed :HaHa: apparently th...

Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

This is part of the coin detector part of the mechanism. As the operating lever is operated, B moves towards the coin, if no coin is detected or a washer is used it will pass through without operating the coin lever that allows play.

Re: Replacement glass recommendations

I am fascinated though when glaziers sell glass cut and say it is toughened as I reckon most of the time it is not as most cannot do the tempering in house. We have a glass specialist in our list, Junior help! I think as has been mentioned before, laminated glass tends to fit our old machines as oft...

Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

Certainly coins could be causing a problem if they are on edge on the top of the coin tube which is full, as if the coin overflow lever cannot move forward because a stack of coins are on end at the top of the tube the lever will stop the rest of it returning to its finished state. Have a look at th...

Re: Replacement glass recommendations

I remember someone telling me ages ago certain glass types should not be used in ball bearing type machines due to risk of shattering, not sure which one. My understanding is that old plate glass is no longer used for obvious reasons, but was replaced by Annealed glass, which can be cut to size and ...

Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

You never answer either of my questions. The issue you have is that the coin detector lever you describe should not be poking through the hole and block the coin and is pulled back when the operating lever returns to the stop I asked about
