Inside Electro-mech.

Post by JC »

Robert Rowland started a new series of articles in issue 41, taking a closer look at the mechanics and operation of electro-mechanical wall machines. He started with a look at Twinkletoes, a 1960s machine supplied by Ruffler & Walker.

Here are the pictures:

Robert continued in issue 42 with a look at Top Ten. This is one of a number of 1960s electro-mechs, as mentioned previously, which has an internal switch that allows the operator to disable certain payouts (I really still can't believe this was legal)!
Here are the pictures as published:

Robert concluded this short series in issue 43 with a look at Rotofruit. There was just one picture published in the magazine - Robert did supply me with a picture of the two uniselectors, but due to space limitations this picture was not included in the article, plus I thought that by now you must all know what a uniselector looks like! Just in case you don't, the picture's posted below.
