I'm new to mechanical one arm bandits and have always wondered how they worked?
I have a couple of old Japanese machines, one is a Pachinko which is fully mechanical and about 60 years old and the other is a sightly newer Pashislo which is electronic in operation, they're now both fully working, the grandchildren love them!
I now have just the mechanics of a Sega? and Bell-fruit machines, which I intend to maybe build a wooden cabinet on the same style as the one I built for my Pachinko machine. There are a number of items I haven't much of a clue what is missing and what all the parts actually do!
I'll photograph the machines and parts and hope to find out more about them and whether I could get the missing parts,such as the pull handle assembly etc etc.
