Krud Kutter..... sounds like a nom de plume for a second rate author of third rate wild western novels. !COWBOY!

Second coat of clear yacht varnish gone on case and door after sanding has its first coat on... looking good I think!

A busy time of year so will take a break for a number of days before cleaning up the dirty chrome and tackling the rusty insides. They have had a light brass wire bushing a number of days ago but should be fun!!

It's well worth remembering to knock off and spend time with your wife, husband or partner... as when I get lost in restoring time then seems to just fly by, and when they ask you questions it's worse as they remind you later and you don't remember them even asking?? They become penny machine widows for a while!!

Years of bad tarnish and older history?

The ball gallery being a 7 and not a 9 is, of course, a problem, but how about making a new top part of the backflash to match the bottom half along with a new "9 results" top flash?

I'm not convinced that this is, or ever has been, a '9 Results'.
The cabinet may have been, but the door, or rather just the mechanism, looks to have been from something else; possibly 'Win a Gift'.
Is there evidence of the gift-box payout rack on the back?

I was going to comment earlier in the thread as I too noticed the hole for the pay cup was once square cut probably for a gift or sweetie payout, probably a long time ago in its history. You can see from front and back the marks....unless me eyes really have finally gone.

Also it looks like the track may have been in a different position from the tie holes, maybe for a different layout. !PUZZLED!
