Hi you all. Just a quicky, does anyone have a photo of the inside of a kicker catcher machine? On first inspection there seems to be a few unconnected bits inside. My daughter bought this one on Ebay for me but it is not working quite right, the balls continue to get jammed up inside. !PUZZLED!

Look online as there are lots of photos of mechs as these are common and were made over many years almost unchanged.

Here' a view. I'd link to the website but it's down.

Thanks to all of you who replied, I had no idea there were so many versions of the same machine. I particularly like the art deco looking case of the earlier machine, nice touch. :tarah:
