As you say, it's a terrific (and still underrated) bandit. As you're going to repaint, I trust you'll preserve the Union Jacks on the sides.
It only has a union jack on the opposite side to the handle. Think I might have to make a stencil to replicate it once I respray the cabinet.

BDR Breadbin

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Hi, does anyone on here have a manual available for the BDR breadbin machine? Does anyone know anyone who may have spares?

Never seen a manual and has been raised on the site before. As said though by others previously, although they are very different to a standard bandit, once you work through the logic of operation, fairly easy to get to grips with.

Thanks TF, I’ve been reading all the archives. Looking forward to giving it a good service. I love the engineering.

One small fault with the engineering that is worth keeping an eye on: the gap between the bottom of the payout tube and the rotating coin slide is critical. Also the adjustment on the small jackpot fill door that opens every 5 coins or so needs to be just right or coins won't pass and a jam results. It's an easy setting, one grub screw (I think) to release and then set the door in the right place. My guess is they soon found this a problem as there is a quick release here to clear jams. Love this machine, especially the way the jackpot refills from the reserve with a tall column of coins. Must be the only machine with a banana on the reels. :cool:

Love the good British engineering in these. Took it all apart today for a good clean and the use of locating pins is admirable, meaning not a lot of room for errors in assembly. Only found one issue with a retaining slide bolt which, when I eventually removed it, was completely stripped of thread. Fortunately, I can drill the old thread out and machine a new bespoke bolt on Monday.

Can anyone explain why the cherry on the top reel is different to the middle and lower reel? Has someone replaced this at some point ?

Also, does anyone have a coin box for sale or can anyone take a photo of theirs and let me have some dimensions?

Thanks

Just checked - cherries on three of mine; one has the cherry same as yours, the other's normal.
