Domino, Lucky Dice, Juge de Paix, Roll Out the Barrel etc.

Hi everybody,
I've got a Domino/Lucky Dice machine, most likely by Jentzsch & Meerz, Leipzig (similar to the one in Nic Costas Automatic Pleasures). Unfortunately I am missing some bits inside. The machine isn't working at the moment. Has anyone got photos / construction plans of the inside mechanism or does anyone know another owner of such a machine so I can check what is missing and renew the missing parts? Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks.
Rod

Hi Rod,

Can you be specfic about which part of the mechanism is missing?
I can probably provide some close-ups, although the machine is not very accessible at present. The linkages that animate the dice players will have been removed if your machine has been converted to a Roll-Out-the-Barrel at some time.

Hi,
Actually I do not know what is missing, at least some springs, I think. I will take some pics of the mechanism and post it here. Maybe you can tell what happened.
Thanks

Wow, Stig,

great pics, these will be very useful. Thanks a lot.

Bad thing is: The mechanism of my machine looks pretty different. A lot of parts seem to be missing. :-(

I post some photos I just took.

Hi, it looks more or less complete, The linkage is there for the dice shaker (he shakes it when you turn the handle). The main bit for the win (he raises his glass) is there, but the link is missing. This is just a bit of bent wire.
Cheers, Dave.

Yes, it looks 99% complete. Don't worry about the tall tubes and different coin acceptor on Stig's machine. It's an unusual manually loaded version.

Here's a picture with the main mechanism removed to reveal the aforementioned bit of wire that raises the wine glass. It hooks to the end of a shaft at the bottom of the mechanism (shown in the second picture). This rotates when a released payout slide pushes one of the three cams mounted along its length. Also attached to this end should be another wire with a small hammer on the end which simultaneously strikes a bell. I think there should also be a light return spring acting between the left-hand hole on the end and the little peg (visible in the picture). Your bell appears to be missing (see the line drawing in Automatic Pleasures or Stig's picture above). It hangs from the curved black mount visible bottom, right (upper picture). You might get one from an horological supplier.

Well, guys, thanks so far.

I will try to figure this out and get the missing parts. First of all I will remove the mechanism, divide and clean it, I guess.

Thanks again.

Clement Bandit

Interesting item on ebay at the moment, an English bandit called 'Roll Out The Barrel' item 200112805066.

Has anyone seen this or anything like it before? Or did 'Mr Clement' cobble this together in his back yard in 1958 (or last month) from Jennings or Mills mechanism, if that was possible. Know very little about bandits but this one is peculiar in that there is no arm but a turn knob on the front very similar to an Allwin turn knob. Winning cup looks a bit odd and not '50s. Whole thing seems a little strange.

I have seen the version of the roll out the barrel which is on ebay before. I have also seen even blander versions. There was one cabinet utilised for the roll out the barrel which has character and this is certainly the version to look out for; I will try and post a picture shortly, but the wife has gone out to a birthday do and taken the camera (I know, selfish).
