penny cascade glass decals

Postby widget2k4 » Sun May 25, 2014 12:25 am

Topic merged - Site Admin.

I just got myself a penny Cascade and wondered if anyone had any info on the best way to put the paint back onto the glass where its missing, mainly where it says 'Bonus' where the bonus coins are collected.
Also, any tips for stopping the coins getting stuck from the striker just before entering the play field?
I know it's got to come apart as the bonus lever is on the wrong way 'round. Are there any tips on taking it apart and getting it back together?

Wotcha' ......

There have recently been a thread or two explaining how to remove and replace the playfield without throwing all of the trips to the four winds. Try a Search.
My preferred method involves suspending the case field uppermost across the backs of two dining chairs then lying on my back underneath. However I recall Paul came up with a more dignified way which doesn't require blindfolding the parrot first nor making sure the vicar isn't calling in for tea.

Jammed coins probably refers to the constant problem of steel coins being thicker?

I found the one with you saying about the chairs but couldn't find another way. I will have another look.

The coins that are jamming are old non steel coins? They work sometimes then other times jam up and I have to remove the flicker mech to get them unjammed. It's very frustrating. :dammit:

ok got that all sorted and even found a way to get all coins working :) new or old without any jams. (bonus)
when i had it apart i noticed 3 pins at the top similar to what the trips go onto, not realizing what they were for i put it all back together, but now i realized the pins are stopping the coins reaching the big win hole, are these original or have they been added to stop people winning ?
they look original

i have now easily put in over a 1000 1p's into this machine and yet to get one in the very far left column ? is this normal and you have to manually fill the end column ? also hit the big win only once.
i am tempted to remove the 3 pins but feel they are meant to be in there ?

it sounds like the coin kicker may be slightly sticking in the slide, or perhaps it is not the original, or has been slightly shortened. It needs to be a loose fit, with no burrs to catch in the slide, so that it travels it's full length before hitting the coin.

i think the kicker is fine as it flies the coins over to the left side but they just bounce back without going into the column, they hit the 3 pins thats hidden behind the cascade writing

Every Cascade I've had has always reached the furthest column.
It sounds as if an operator has fiddled with it.

I don't have one now, so can't compare, but I'd guess those pins are added.

Agree with BP, there should be no pins... The left column should be easy, as over tapping always ends up on the left hand side.
