Payout with a difference

Postby arrgee » Tue Oct 30, 2018 4:53 pm

A Bryans 5 win on eBay - some nasty operator wanting to make it hard for the punter to turn the payout knob :o :shock:

'that'll stop the blighters banging the payout knob'

Strange as it seems, I've had 2 Bryans in the past with this spike on. I ended up removing them! Still can't figure out why they were there????

A local pinball operator in the 1970s used to add a small spike like that to the end of the plunger rod to stop players banging it forwards and breaking the barrel spring and eventually the cabinet joint. But really can't see the purpose here?

We discussed this before in relation to the Bryans payout knob 'end stop'.

I think it was designed precisely to prevent players getting a good grip, also perhaps to stop them thumping the knob in an effort to release the payout stops (similar to bumping a lock). Whether this was possible, I'm not sure, but apparently players tried it. I've seen a few Bryans allwins with a metal cone attached to the payout knob to thwart this practice. The collars around the payout knobs on some Whales allwins achieve a similar end. You had to use your fingertips rather than a full hand, greatly reducing the force you could apply. Unfortunately, it does mean small hands struggle to work the payouts, especially after other greasy fingers have done their work.
