I might have expected someone from eBay moving this one on, or a teenage kid with no coin-op experience whatsoever thinking he's done a great job, but this machine has seemingly been 'done up' with the intention of selling at the Coventry auction. New cheap locks and false plastic coin tray front with a flat piece of aluminium the coins are supposed to slide down but don't (as the missing coin tray had the coin chute built in).
All the coin slides wobble about and jam, perched on bits of aluminium tube cut into short pieces of varying lengths that could never have worked. The vendor would have been better simply presenting an honest machine minus the parts it needs, instead of this total bodge that they appear to think is a job well done but clearly demonstrating the lack of basic mechanical knowledge.
Well, I finally had the chance of taking a look inside some of the 'bargains' knocked down at the end of the auction that I had the misfortune of buying having not looked inside them on the day, but bought last minute, viewing from a distance as I stood in the queue to pay, seemed cheap enough.
