Re: Play Nine Holes golf penny game

Hi, well finally got round to taking the back off of this machine and woah what a mess inside. Happily the glass is in great condition considering (pic 1), but needs a careful cleaning. The bits I thought were missing are actually there, they were hidden behind about a million broken pieces of yello...

Re: Play Nine Holes golf penny game

Hi, thanks coppinpr for the heads up. The part of the plastic track that has the notches in is the part I will screw to the back board. The remaining flat surface will become the track for the penny to follow. I like the idea of the hole being larger than the penny approximately how much larger woul...

Re: Play Nine Holes golf penny game

Hi, I found a solution to the track, pics below. Using a bit of right angled plastic trim I have cut little notches in it and it bends without any difficulty on the notch. I can then drill through that edge and screw it to the back board. I have used this material before and with a light sanding it ...

Re: Play Nine Holes golf penny game

Thanks coppinpr, just to clarify are the holes cut into the back board or into the track? Can't quite work out how the pennies would fall towards the backboard if they are moving forward? Mei-mei

Re: Play Nine Holes golf penny game

Thank you pennymachines, unfortunately the one I have has only the glass supported with wooden struts behind. There is no back plate at all, and it looks as though someone has just tried to stabilise the glass to use it for display purposes only. Would I be right in thinking that these 'tracks' foll...

Decorative parts you can't find replacements for

Hi, I had some issues finding a 1d nominator for one of my machines, so I found a fix (not for the purists). You can buy on line stuff to make a silicone mould. the silicone putty comes in two parts, each a different colour so you can see when it is mixed correctly the colour will be uniform. You th...
