Gigantic Motor Racing Multiplayer

Way back in the mid to late sixties, I can recall playing on a huge motor racing game, located in the Oasis Amusements in Great Yarmouth. It was the first thing you saw when entering the room (well, it was hard to miss!). It was similar to the "Grand Prix" game, but much, much bigger. It m...

Re: Brenco Match a Fruit

I was wondering what the approximate dimensions of the Match-A-Fruit are? I wouldn't mind having a go at building one from scratch....

Yes, my relay runs very cool in operation, so any overheating should be immediately noticeable.

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

As it's only 2v more than the recommended maximum voltage for a 26C2T, it probably wouldn't cause any problems - they are very robust units and should be able to cope with it, with perhaps a small reduction in service life. I'm not sure if inserting a series resistor would affect operation of the ci...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Roto-Games Time-Delay Relay Problem Solved (?) I have just repaired an Electrodart machine that has been in storage for years, waiting for a replacement time delay relay (the troublesome and rare "cutout" that so often burns out). I am happy to say that my machine is now working, using a ...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

OK - mystery solved - it didn't occur ro me that the blue wire actually connects to the blue wire feeding uniselector 2's solenoid coil, hence its length. I had assumed that the wire needed to be connected to uniselector 1 as in the diagrams, but in this case, not so. Another one for the unusual var...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Having checked the 1st and 2nd versions of the manuals, it seems to me that the model I have has a rather different wiring design to those shown. Nothing seems to tally with the expected wiring connections - so maybe this is a variant that was made in the factory, or it has been modified somewhat (a...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

A quick update - the blue wire COULD reach across to the left hand uniselector (when they are mounted to the back board of the case) - but where it connects to is still a mystery!
