Hi BP, yes that is the one but if you read the previous posts the question was about the measurement, as the one I have here is not central but aprox 50mm off central. I was just checking to see if that was right. By the way did you sort out pics of the duomatt bits?

I have just measured mine: the top of the cabinet is approximately 18 inches long, the button is 9 inches from the end, so in that regard it is central, but the top is about 10 inches deep and the button is 8 1/2 inches from the back, immediately in front of the coin entry. If yours is nowhere near this measurement then I suggest you post a photo of the top and we go from there.

Just looked at Treefrogs photo in this thread and it shows the skill stop in the (seemingly) correct position so I don't know quite what can be 50mm off central. !PUZZLED!

This is a scanned photo (on paper not digital!) of my clock, from during its restoration. Hope this helps. Presently I can't get to the machine.

These were hand built and assembled machines so they are often all over the place, 5mm is nothing and well within acceptable limits, not noticeable in the photo. That is unless the button it's jamming up or not working? Then you may have issues with the wood having moved slightly.
