Correct! It comes out looking like WD 40 but does not have the same properties. Why can't he water the potted plants instead?

Dear @special_when_lit
Looks like a great project. I have the same machine, mercifully in slightly better condition :)
Would you be able to share a photo of how the electrics are connected pls?
Am especially interested in:
1. What the wires (one is blue), rising to the left of the payout window, connect to.
2. What lighting fixture is in the separate/top "highlight" section (also is there a proper name for that? Mine is missing and I'd like to get one).
3. The spec for the neon starters.
I can see the wiring diagram from the resources section, so that's also very useful.
Kind regards,
Marek

Hi Marek.
In answer to your questions;
1 The wires go to the light fitting in the top box.
2 The fitting is a standard mini fluorescent fitting, the same as the others in the machine, but with its own starter.
3 I've had a look at mine, but the starters have no markings.

Thanks special_when_lit

Will take the choke I've got to some DIY stores and see what I can find.

Re. the lamps, would you know if they are the standard 9" ones or some special length?

Kind regards
Marek
