Stuart, just for clarification did you mean Deano's motor has been swapped at some time or the 10rpm one I posted? Also just to get a better understanding of the jargon, I understand what you say about 'synchronous' motors being constant speed, but the synchronous motor on ebay you mention says 'speed reducing'. Your pearls of wisdom please. TF, the Easy Push had a faster motor than the Davy Jones because it pushed back the coins on the edge of the deck - the Davy Jones didn't do this.

Not sure which type the Easy Push is. Mine is attached at the moment as below.

Funnily I have a pile of various motors with gearboxes as below. No idea why I have them and whether they are any use for anything. Look to be all British by makers like Brevel, Carter, Limit and Mycalex.

Hi, yes the motor on Deano's machine has been changed at some point, I think the ad on ebay just suffers from a bad Chinese translation - it is in fact a constant speed motor. They do offer a few options of final rpm. :cool:

I never realised that this machine was by CAM Automatics of Seaham Harbour.
I was the under-bidder, too.
I'd certainly have gone up to £350 if I'd known!

Hi Brigham,
Sorry didn't realize you were the under bidder. I may sell it on yet once its working correctly. Can you give me more info about Cam automatics, and does it make the machine a bit more special etc.
Thanks.

It makes the machine interesting to me. CAM Automatics (and MAC, before them) were based at Seaham Harbour, which is one of my boyhood haunts.
I've never liked pushers. I think perhaps the principle was a little too basic; but this one was small, early (as pushers go), familiar, and not damaged by the decimalisers, so I thought I'd have a go.
Also it was local for collection. That always helps!

Ah thanks for the info, sounds like the machine has quite a connection to you. Will keep you in mind if I ever sell. Collection would have been best like you say as DPD damaged it in transit and I can't start the resto until the claim goes through! Also waiting on a new motor to arrive so not had a lot of luck so far with it.

Not a good idea having a machine sent by carrier. I am sure many on here would agree but I would recommend using a private carrier through Shipley or Anyvan type service rather than the big companies. To be fair to the sender, it was very well packed but still got knocked about. The claims process is awkward too as it's all up to the sender to chase the claim even though the buyer has to photograph the damage, keep all packaging and not able to touch the item until the claim has gone through!
