The distance between rear of slide and start of hole is 34mm

Had a quick look and could not find one, I only have Mills/Sega ones that will not work. Hole position is key as it Varys from manufacturer and period from machine to machine.

Stick a wanted add in, as these are common machines and many will exist. If I come across one, will let you know.

The easiest is to find exactly the correct replacement that matches up position of coin hole, width of slide and thickness of two 1nps.
Next option would be to braze the original broken bit back on, but of course that requires finding it. It might be in the very bottom of the case.
Finally, make one. I'd use brass, ensuring the gauge is correct ( thickness of two 1nps) and using the original as a pattern, but adding the missing bit that needs to be bent upwards to the height of the stacked bundle.

I've never known this to happen before now. Have you just recently bought it? Or was it working before? In which case if it's only just happened it's worth searching inside for it.

When I first got it, it worked fine, then it stopped working and I was told to replace the springs by someone, which I did, but no better. I then left it for a while as it worked, except paying out. I have looked everywhere inside the machine for the broken piece and cannot find it. I have removed the base plate and it wasn't there either, so not sure where it could have gone.

Damn, the Slot Gremlins strike again!

I can think of at least 6 houses I've lived in since the 90s that have portals direct to the land of The Slot Gremlins. I also imagine the neighbourhoods surrounding those houses are all resting on foundations of screws, bolts, washers, springs, keys, tanners all of which will keep Tony Robinson's Grandson and his Time Team puzzling for several future series on BBC 37.

BP :-(
