Coppinpr and badpenny are right. Chris rideout, there would have bin a topbox from origin but I like the machines more without it. Am I the only one? On German ebay there is a case without the jackpot and escalator but with the two parts I need. But 200 euros ex. shipping is a bit too much.
When everything comes together well I will attend the auction in Coventry. It will be a one day trip.

The photo is on end, it needs turning 90° clockwise.
I've rotated it 90° anti-clockwise, 'cause it looks better like that... :o

I was anticipating how it would look after we put the clocks back.

Today i did take the slides out of the machine to clean them. And by surprise i met old friends.... spacers! They are carefully solderd are the hole for the coins and even on the posts. I think the slides were ment to be for different pay outs.

I wonder if this is more a problem for machines bought on a non local coinage as people want to use a local one. Although a lot of messing goes on here as well. I commonly come across people using things like washers at the top or bottom of slide posts because they are not matched to slides.

It looks like you have correct number of slides, but if you stack 20 6D coins in them do they fill the modified slides as these coins are quit thin

Hi treefrog, yes they work exactly with the number of coins. It looks like every machine has it own surprise :D .
