What's the worst machine you ever had?

I bought and still have a Mills Extraordinary that should be superb. When I got it it looked wonderful....... the escalator had been buggered around with and I decided to fit an appropriate jackpot, that was all! ............ HAH!! :twisted:

Several years on and it just gets worse and worse, no matter what I do to it, it's always one step forward then two back :evil:
Everything worked for one pull of the handle, and since then: -
The clock stripped its gears
The reels slowed
The escalator jams the whole mech
The jackpot won't release
The payout slides have a mind of their own
The vertical fingers no longer line up, and even if they do, they don't penetrate
The reels brake in 2-1-3 sequence

It is currently in its component parts and scattered to every corner of the shed, so far as I'm concerned it can stay that way. :sick:

What's your worst horror story?
