Re: Springs for allwins

Thanks. I’ve ordered some piano wire so once that comes I’ll give it a try. How hard can it be?! Lol.

Springs for allwins

I need some very small extension springs and can’t find a reasonable source. There are lots of mixed spring sets on eBay but all too big. The ones I need are the light ones which return the penny trip lever on Oli Whales machines and also the spring on the ratchet lug. Ideally a mixed set of tinys w...

When I first saw it I immediately thought mahogany too, but discounted it as I thought it was unlikely. Maybe not...

Re: Oliver Whales wood?

It is possible it’s just an unusual bit of oak I guess. It looks very red for oak. I guess once I get sanding a bit I’ll know for sure.

Yes it is a bit of a pile of work! I keep getting distracted by pinball machines but hoping to get a few more done in the coming weeks!

Re: Oliver Whales wood?

OK. Some confusion. Due to the pile of broken allwins I have I think the part I showed was actually from a Whales Allwin Deluxe, not the Easy 9, of which I have 3 in the pile! The Easy 9 does indeed appear to be oak. However the Deluxe is indeed a different wood. Don’t laugh at the state if it. It’l...

Re: Oliver whales wood?

Thanks. That’s interesting. I made a table in cherry once! I’ll take a look.

Interestingly my version of different to the pic above. That’s an oak case. Mine is the style with the flash in the top above the door and as stated in a different wood to that. The playfield is the same though.
Thanks

Oliver Whales wood?

So I'm working through my pile of Allwins to restore. I'm now embarking on an Oliver Whales Easy 9. The case isn't too bad but I'll need to make a new cash door as it's missing. Does anyone know what wood they used? It's not oak. I suspect it's a hardwood but not sure what. Maybe some weird redwood?...

Re: Hanno Moulin Rouge

I was just about to say I’ve got a full wiring diagram but then I see you have it already! I don’t think there’s anything more to add to that. It is the full circuit diagram. As for the manual, I guess there would have been one, probably in German, but never come across one when searching myself. It...
