Looking at the back there is a linkage missing from the handle part up to the middle of the machine. Highly unlikely anyone will have one spare so guess I’ll have to make one out of something.... any handy suggestions? Looking at other pics the original was made with a rod of about 3mm diameter and was a dog leg shape. I wondered about some fencing wire but will need to make the ends up of something to fit the handle. I’m also unsure if there is a bit missing from top of the handle unit as in middle pic. There’s a rod with a hole in the end. Should something be in there?
If I push the linkage up the clockwork mechanism in it runs and the top wheel turns a little but the bottom does not. I clearly need to get it out the case and get the dust blown off it first but anyone know of any things to look for or watch out to avoid?
Finally I don’t know what coin it’s running on. The payouts are in pfennigs to I tried a 10pf I had but it drops straight through the reject slot. Any clues as to what it might be? Clearly needs to be a bit thicker.
