Re: Allwins

The payout slides might need a clean, that's what caused mine to pay incorrectly as they were sticking sometimes. Unsure if I'll do a full tear down, but I will eventually look into cleaning all of the slides. I've found the 3-ball columns reliably have issues, giving a full 6 coin payout, while al...

Elizabeth pennies, as in our queen, were the latest old pennies to be minted and as such should be the least worn in terms of thickness.

Re: Allwins

Follow-up: the payout levers seem to work fine now, perhaps just some old cobwebs needed to be shaken out. But now sometimes the payouts aren't quite 1 coin per ball, so I might have to look into that. Are thin coins a common problem with payout mechs like these? My write up: http://pinballnovice.bl...

Re: Niche Collections

Thank you for sharing. I've never seen one with the 4 pockets below the grid like that. What are the rules for payouts?
