Don't worry about it, it does happen at times on here.

I have noticed when it's happened to me in the past that opening the photo in an editing suite (even MS Paint), moving the aspect through all 90 degree positions and saving it every time before finally saving it in the position it should be, does the trick.
I don't know why, but it seems to stop the randomness.
It was a trick I picked up from another forum I frequent www.tickle_my_arse-with_a_feather.com

BP :cool:

I believe the orientation of the camera when you take the picture is recorded in the file's metadata, but I'm sure there's more to it than that.

Looking at my mech it actually has two slots in the top of the coin mech. Would this be to run it on coins as opposed to tokens?
Also, is it a good idea to use engine degreaser to clear all the grease out before lubing it up with fresh oil?

This rather ratty model spotted on US ebay, showing the semi-electric mechanism.

Hi Guys
I'm not sure if this is good or not or will interest someone... whilst browsing through the Ebay Jukebox section I came across this auction... seems strange it's under jukeboxes but it caught my eye as it's a mech that I believe is not very common .. a Bell Fruit Nevada mech... it's in poor condition but looks like it's built like a brick out house. :)

all the best
Dicky
