Hello! I am restoring a Duo-Mat machine and it works well but doesn't pay out. I was wondering if anyone has the 6 pence payout mechanism for this machine. See images attached.

Was the mech missing or damaged? There’s a guy in Germany who make repro ones for this machine. I can find his link if you need it.

All the parts for the payout were missing when I bought it.

Never seen a 6 pence version, maybe was a German DM size......I assume you knew about missing parts when buying

I knew it was missing something but it was too cool to pass up. With the internet I thought I would be able to find whatever I need. I hope someone can help.

Slides here for pennies but you'll need the rest of the mech. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224131893009?ul_noapp=true

I hope to find the six pence mech. If I use the penny slides I have a lot more to change.

Your post confused me (story of my life)
Are you saying the machine operates on 6d or the pay outs cover the range of 6 old pennies?

The latter would seem unlikely as 6 coins maximum is mean, yet the diameter of the tube in the photos doesn't suggest 6d.
What size is the coin entry?
As mentioned, it might still be the original DM. Perhaps somebody removed the whole pay out mech to attempt a conversion, got bored and then lost it.
Personally, I lost it years ago.
BP :cool:

The instructions, the coin slot, and the tube are all 6d.
