Hi Harold ..........

Not a lot left to say that hasn't already been voiced. I hope you're fit enough to hit Coventry this year, it wouldn't be the same without you, but if we need to shift the venue to the High Peaks just say.

Sorry to bring back an old post.
I just got a Bingolett and can't work out how the overflow coins are meant to get to the cashbox when the payout tube is full.
I have looked at all the pictures on this thread and they seem different.

If it's been converted from a small German coin to a larger English one then the original overflow deflector and its chute may well be too small to cope.

Will the coin you're playing it on pass the width of the down slide next to the top of the payout tube?
If not, then there's your problem.

Edited as don is not a word, but down is.

Yes, the coin fits fine - it is on Denmark coins which I think is original. Just there is no way of the coins going down the overflow chute when the tube is filled. I think the wire thing is homemade and it diverts the coins down the chute but not into the coin tube so I bent it out the way for now.
Something is deffo missing or not right.

I thought that the wire is the spring which keeps the pin against which the coin sits tensioned.

So, as the bar above comes down and pushes the coin through the gate the coin has to push the tensioned pin to one side in order to pass to the tube. If the tube is full then the momentum gathered by the coin being pushed by the spring loaded bar will send it off to the side (as it has nowhere else to go) and down the overflow chute.

video of the coin mech.
you can either having it going down the tube or deflecting it to the overflow chute, but no way for it to do it automatically that i can tell ?

Wowsers! .... now I can see it working, I'd say ... it don't make sense. I didn't expect it to lift outwards, I thought sideways.

Fill the tube up to the top, remove the wire and the attached peg, then see what happens, I suspect all will be well in the kingdom of widget.

To support my optimism let me explain I am currently enjoying a small tankard of licorice flavoured Sambuca.
