My first restoration was also an old rusty Tura. I had no clue what everything was and it looked like this.

The learning curve was almost as rough as the condition of the machine, but after some 300 hours, it was done. Yours does look nearly as bad, so you should have it knocked out in half that time :lol:

I wrote a bunch of articles / tips on restoring various Tura machines. They're in Danish, but perhaps the images and the Google translate option can give you some pointers. I also have a box of Tura parts in the attic (though no original payout table) should your other leads turn cold.

Hello faautomater, thank you for your post. You did a wonderful job on the Tura. Your pictures will help me for sure and if I need parts I will give you a shout for sure.

Greetings Albert.

Thank you Mills, I found that site too. Its really helping me with putting it all back together. Made myself lots of pictures too. The only thing I don't like is that it looks like some parts are brand new or spray painted like a silver colour? But that is personal. I am stripping and cleaning the mechanism to bring it back to its natural state. I mean the machine is what, 80 years old. I think it looks better that way.

But again that is personal.

Greetings

Albert

Does anyone know what that little glass window is on the top left of the front of the machine?
Normaly is a small numbered disc (2 ,4,8,12,16,20), driven by some gears from payout unit, behind the window.
It shows the value of last profit.
In 99% the parts a missing. I knew only 2 machines that still have this item.

@Albert:
The right reel of your machine is from a (wrecked) Kasus. Notice the gear inside the reel.
Here some pics of my machine during restoration.

That’s interesting the first Tura in this thread has a 10 stop mechanism and your machine last one posted unless my eyes are deceiving me has a 30 stop version. I have seen 25 and 28, but never 30. I see though limited pay holes and reel strips are a little odd. What is the story with this machine !PUZZLED!

The Kasus was the last Tura machine with approval by authorities. You've seen right, it has 30 Stop positions, but only the white space between the geometric symbols is profit zone.
System is:
-Insert coin, pull handle
-Start machine reels running by push left brake button
-Hard push on brake buttons stops reels
-After stop reels you have to "shift" reels with soft touch on brake buttons to a "profit combination"
Running time (and shifting possible) is from left to right reel: 2 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 1/2 seconds.
So you have to play against the clockwork inside.
Link to Kasus advertisement:

After war no one wants to have machines with Kasus system. They were all wrecked, in most cases to build up "normal" machines. In some cases Kasus parts appear in "normal" Tura machines, like the one wheel with gear inside at first machine in this thread.

At the moment I prepare the Kasus for Automateum-Convention this month. If machine is running I post you a video link.

And is it true that the mechanisms of a Tura were made by Mills or is that not true?
