What a cracking little machine mech. Although I'm a mechanical man through and through, this "bespoke" job on a mech is beautiful. I did bid on this machine but it went too high for what it was. Shame your taking the "electric" parts off, would have been nice to see it working. If you ever want to get rid of the mech let me know, I'd love to have a crack at fixing it!

It can't be original, as that style of microswitch wasn't made when Buckley were still in business. I've seen other machines, Jennings usually, that were retrofitted with a hopper for paying frequent jackpots - this could be something similar. I also recall there was an operator down in the West Country that did electric conversions on old bandits around 1970. The ratchet and solenoid looks like it may have once been part of the reflex unit of a bingo pinball. But the quality of the job looks too good for a British showman. It's not cobbled together out of scrap wire and decaying electrical tape with lethal exposed connections.
