Re: Günter Wulff Astra - Insides

Hi slotsoffun!

You have shown a picture of the inside of the Astra.

At the top on the right is a solenoid which pulses at the same time as the dice dots are added up. There is a rod attached to this which is missing on my machine.

Could you provide a close-up photo of this, together with an explanation of what it does? (I wondered whether it is part of the randomising process.)

Many thanks.

Ah ha! I've figured it out!

Each pulse pushes down the rod which turns the toothed wheel which is part of the randomiser - once every revolution it pushes two contacts together to extend the duration of the spin of the pointer.

I'll be making the missing bit today!
