Here you go.
Without and with cig payout, cobwebs and broken connections. Highlight any close-ups you need.

Insert penny to release five balls. Turn knob on left to drop ball to hammer and fire with trigger in the usual fashion, aiming for the highest score in the middle of the gallery (3000, 3000, 6000, 9000, 6000, 3000, 3000). Scores are totted-up on the star lights above: 36,000 to win your coin back, 42,000 for a cigarette. The winning score may be adjustable and of course the number of balls could be altered.

Nice machine, is this your one that you have restored, if so, did you rewire the machine as I haven't dared to plug mine in looking at the ancient wiring... :shock:

Hi,
Thanks, and yes this is my 'Fireworks' allwin. I restored most of the mechanical side to this game myself, but as you say 'had not dared to plug in due to ancient wiring'.
A friend of mine is a genius with these things and he sorted the electrical problems for me along with some teething mechanical errors I could not fathom myself.
I am super grateful to him for his help on this project.

Very interesting, often wondered exactly how these machines worked.

Nobby Pennytoy, it would great if you had time to take a picture of the finished electrics. !!THUMBSX2!!
How much did your friend replace in terms of wiring or other components?

Hi
I was extremely lucky in that my 'Fireworks' allwin was complete, but did need checking over by my expert friend.
He started off by replacing the mains power cable to the transformer and changed the failed lights.Then he cleaned all the dirty contacts and fixed those that weren't working correctly. He meticulously checked all other original wiring and the major components which were all operational and capable of working safely.

:shock: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING :shock:

Please see the internal view of my working 'Fireworks' allwin.
