I was wrong again, TF didn't have 6 only 5 :o

Your machine looks to have the makers reg plate on the front, if so ,with typical German efficiency that should tell you not only the year it was made but also the month and day !OMFG!

The first one I had took 1d and had the playfield converted to 1d payouts which I think look a little plain. The one I have now is on 1d but I have returned it to the original Pf numbers on the playfield and info cards and I think it looks much better that way. You can see the difference in TF's video and the photo above it. However, if you do wish to use the UK coin markers I am happy to send you the kit I made myself (see below). The last photo is how it was when I got it.

Who?

Have you started making machines out of corpses Paul?

If I tell you the location and plot number of my late Aunt, any chance you could do me a Buckley Bones? ;-)

My god you are picky BP, you didn't used to teach Latin by any chance did you, they used to be picky about the wording just like you.."people they called the Romans they go the house" sounds as good as "Romans go home" to me. dirtdog

Please children, play nicely!!!! Well it arrived today and I had some clearer photos emailed to me. I will list them in the order that I would go about repairing it.
Firstly, the arm that links this to the wheel is clearly missing.

Secondly, the back plate at the beginning of the machine is missing. (I have cut one of these from mild steel before so think, unless anyone has a spare lying around) I can manage this.

Thirdly, the clock. Which if I understand from an earlier message needs to be soaked in Diesel? Is that regular car diesel? Seems to be attached with just 4 screws and easy enough to remove?

Lastly, I'm not sure if this has come out in the pic clearly enough, but there seems to be a missing part connecting the first part of the coin chute to any other part of the machine!

There are bound to be other issues, but if I can get it turning, I might be able to diagnose more myself. Help please always appreciated. Mei-mei

Hi, coppinpr. I love the look of the stickers, does that mean that my machine is in phenigs? If so. does that mean it would pay out in phenig quantities?

No way to tell for sure till you run it, depends on the conversion. What does the info card on the machine say about payouts? The numbers on the top circle are certainly the Pf ones. Is there a maker's licence on the front? If so, what is the date out of interest?

Don't forget the clock is connected to the machine so it can do its job, not just the four screws.

Not quite sure what you mean by the back plate :!?!:

When you drop a coin in the slot what does the coin do/go?

A strong word of caution! Your machine looks very dry and stiff in the photos. Do NOT force it in any way. The mech is made of pot metal, designed to last three years then be scrapped. It's close to 70 years old. Parts WILL break if under pressure. :tut

Way ahead of you on the oiling front. OMG spent a very happy 3 hours oiling, checking connections, adding missing springs and C clips. !!YABBADABBA!! Only info on the machine is '0BEN Angezeigter Betrag' on the front inside the lower round glass, and the number 005848 on the metal plate where the penny goes in on the side. No makers mark as far as I can see. Also checked the penny slot, which helpfully takes a penny that goes part of the way down and then gets stuck. On second inspection I was mistaken about the missing back plate, it is in situ, so undid all the screws and eased the plates apart slightly which helped,but think the problem is with the rather shoddy adaptation to a penny from phenig. Seems to have been a poor connection to the tube leading to the payout slot and on just a quick look the penny catches on the tube which has also been hand crafted rather poorly.
Would love to purchase a set of english stickers if you still have some. How does it work, can you do it through paypal? Payout info on front is in pennys. Have I forgotten anything? Mei-mei

Do you want the kit on plain paper, photo paper or sticky-backed matt/gloss vinyl? Do you want it now or when the machine is running? :lol:

Sticky back for sure, but as to shiny or plain it kinda depends on what the original would have looked like? Also your advice on whether to try to remove the old stickers first? Another problem that appeared yesterday was because it doesn't have a back door to act as a stabiliser, it is hard to keep it in the upright position to work on it safely. Anyone out there gotta spare door?
