Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi All, Bit more done. Decorated the table, made and painted the back plate where the coins go down. Also made the coin chute. I made this out of a bit of plastic, as the coins seem to slide better on this. It is definitely going to be a gold mine on my arcade. It is very addictive. It seems like th...

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi all, The bottom slot is for moving the coin slide to position the coin, ready to roll down. I found it very easy to win on. The missed coins land on the table and slide off into the coin tray underneath. I found that a lot of the missed coins hit the back plate and chipped a lot of the paint off....

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi,
The Gold Mine is something I designed myself. I don't think there are any machines like it.

Re: Winter project

Hi all, A bit more work done, managed to pick the right colour for the walls. The colour was Beach Sand, also started the wiring that works fine and painted the roll down chute. Haven't done much in the last fortnight as I have had a bad cold. A good few days after Christmas should have it all singi...

Re: Winter project

Hi All, A bit more work done on the Gold Mine, I tried using poly filler but it didn't come out right. I tend to make everything too square, more like brick work, so I decided to use resin plaster and a rubber mould. A bit of a nightmare going round the bends - I had to fill the mould up, waited unt...

Re: Winter project

Hi all, A bit more work on the cabinet. Got the back wall done, used some poly filler to make a rock face & started to put some studding up for the side walls. Have built a coin hopper and linked it to solenoid, works really well. I am sure it will frighten the kids to death with the noise, like som...

Re: Winter project

Hi all, Second picture is the mock up of the playfield. I have also made the hopper with a micro switch in. I have made the table out of thin metal, managed to get the balance right. Coins that land on it will slip off into the cash box. Everything seems to work OK. Been busy this week, made the cab...
