Safetyman,

Can I possibly entice you to move to Tennessee? Or at least visit for six months? I have equally challenging machines that require your magic.

Another member, Australian by birth, has the same offer.

Great restoration !!THUMBSX2!!

On your new project, I was trying to work out if anything is missing, the only things I can see are the actual payout tray, which should not be tough to make and the payout knob/controls for the payout (unless they are not in the picture).....I was a little confused as the payout control on most of these, including mine is above the catcher control on the left of the door, but suspect yours was the same of the one posted by Bryans fan and just to the left of the payout tray, so on the lower wood panel.....

Hi there
I thought I'd give you an update on the project.
I used the back board as a template but because the bottom was missing, I had to jiggle about all the parts until I got it to work. I replaced a lot of the rusty levers.
I managed to save the original lock by drilling out the tumblers [as locksmith not interested] but he did supply a blank profile key.
I've still got to make the cabinet (waiting for some timber).
Photo below shows door as at today.
