You're doing it on purpose. You know her preferred pronoun. :tut

She suggests jumping back to 2013 for a touch of déjà vu, starting with this question:

Many thanks for all the information. That loose part is probably the Tilt Device that you all talk about. I have decided for now to stick a 5 over the FREE SPIEL. It can always be corrected at a later date if a part becomes available. I will be making a video of the EXACTA machine today. You can all view the video on this site later.
Cheers

Not sure I understand the point of the tilt device as these machines were meant to be wall mounted !PUZZLED! of course if you were a cruise operator they would have been a nightmare on ships :HaHa:

I have checked and don’t have the parts for the free spin, also any original strips.

Seen your video posted by coin-op (below) and reel one needs adjusting. There is drag and it stops too quickly. Should be an easy fix. Probably just move the reel stop back, undoing the screw slightly...

Thanks Treefrog. I have no idea at all, but I see what you mean. When you get a chance, could you post a picture for me just where this screw is located. I dare not mess about when not knowing.

Ignore me, I have realised that there are two types of reel re-spin on Gunter Wulff machines, one just flicks the reel a few spaces (the most common) and one that has a lever that holds back the reel stop, this allows the re-spin button when depressed to provide a full spinning reel on reel one. The stopping of reel one early on this type is intentional. So all OK, the dragging noise you would need to look at, but does not seem to affect play..... !!THUMBSX2!! I continue to learn something new on these machines.

The free spin (when there's a symbol on reel 3) is a disc on reel 3 that a hammer falls into. This gives a free play on the machine not just one reel.
This rotates a thin axle (which can be seen in the video) which runs across the bottom of the casting where the coin drops into the tube, it ends in line with the cut out in the casting that gives access to the base of the trigger which catches against the coin in the gate when you pull the handle down.
When that axle rotates it turns a lever that is tightened onto it to swivel until it blocks the base of the trigger which finds the coin. This fools the mech into thinking there's a coin waiting to be played. Hence free spin, or free go or free play, whichever name you want to give it.
I'm sure that was all clear as mud, so tomorrow I'll see what I can find pictorially to post.
Rob's case doesn't have a window in the front glass to display "tilt" so either it never had that function or the mech was originally in a different case.

Thanks Mr P. I've no idea what's up with me. I simply can't be left unobserved these days. You should see what happens if I suddenly find myself unsupervised. It's stimulatingly scary, and the opportunities seem endless. I feel kind of like an unattended fire hose on full bore.
