Hi
It appears that there is nothing on the outside of the machine to remove the glass. Can you tell me where the nuts are situated? Are they hidden away somewhere?

The nuts are inside the door, fastening the belly glass frame strips to the other side. There are lots of them, and it's difficult to see which ones hold the frame, and which hold other components inside the frame.
On mine, taking off the nuts didn't ease the frame, and so I had no idea whether or not I'd found them all.
There was a video on YouTube showing one being removed, but that one simply fell off. I think it had been 'prepared earlier'.

I have a Bally Money Tree and I am currently having difficulty with it accepting some 1p pieces.
Anybody any ideas?
Cheers...

I know nowt about Bally bandits, but I do know that 1np coins are often an issue in coin operated machines.
Before 1992 they were pure brass, after that date they had a steel content which was problematic around magnets and then some years afterwards we noticed a randomness in their thickness.
If you place one dated before 92 next to one in the late 90s and another from a couple of years ago you'll be amazed at the difference.

Removing the magnet from the coin mech may solve the problem (it's a simple fix we often use). The thickness may or may not prove an issue.

Thank you. I will remove the magnet as you suggested. Just as an aside, do all the Bally Moneytree machines have the bell built in? Mine has. It looks just like an electric door bell with a timer device fitted. Works fine, and on every win too. I will post a pic if it's of interest. Thanks again.

Hi Everyone
Does anybody know if this machine could be made to take all one penny pieces? I know the issue over different coins. I have removed the magnet on mine. Is there anything else I can do?
Thank you.
