Finally finished the woodwormy Electrodart. Electrics were a bit tricky, but after a bit of work, they now all work OK. Had to replace the capacitor on the play relay, & also fitted a bridge rectifier in place of the old selenium one, fitted 2 LED bulbs for the main lighting, as they run a lot cooler & will be less likely to damage the screen printed glass.
I also fitted 2 bulbs behind the lower darts. There were cut-outs in the mech board, but there had never been any bulbs fitted, probably a cost saving move by Jamiesons.
Still has a slight fault with the payout slide not fully returning, & jamming up with coins, but I've ordered some graphite powder, & hopefully that'll sort it.
Also need a payout cup, if anyone's got one.

Splendid job. I haven't found one of these yet, or the other two in the range.
That's a very early Autofruit. Mine's much more 'refined'.
I'd love to get a complete catalogue of Jamieson's machines; especially the 1950s and '60s types.

What's the outside diameter of the cup lip (widest measurement inside the cup surround)? I have some unplated brass cups.

Thanks to Mr Pennymachines, I now have the finishing touch fitted to the Electrodart.
