Hello

Post by chopper »

Hi everyone,
I have been looking on this site for a while now and I have learnt quite a bit about slot machines and I enjoy working on them, so I thought I would sign up.
Is there anybody who could help me get hold of some Mills or Sega payout finger springs?
The springs on my latest machine are all chewed up.
Thanks

Hi, and welcome on board.

You can get springs from America'land that are described as suitable. Mr. Slot for example (http://www.mrslot1.com/)
Alternatively pop down to Machine Mart, Screwfix or ToolStation who sell plastic boxes of assorted springs. https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht394- ... ollection/

You might have to snip or tweak to fit, but are cheaper and more immediate.

Thanks,
I think I will get a box of springs and see how I get on. I've got eight payout fingers,
so I will have some fun getting them just right. I wouldn't mind but it only pays out three different amounts.
Cheers

It needs to pay out more than three different amounts.
Some previous bodger has left his mark!

I know, and it's not even correct on the pay card. I think Frankenstein made it.
Once I get it running like it should, I might think about changing the fingers or fabricating them to push more levers out.
I have ordered 8 upper springs from MrSlot with shipping 20.

It won't be the fingers that need changing. You need to start by running a test on all the payout disc holes.

The most common fiddle to eliminate higher value payouts is to obstruct the relevant holes on the pay out discs.
Other ways would be to remove the relevant fingers completely.
Without photos of the areas concerned it's hard to confirm which.

I think he's trying to increase the payouts BP, not reduce them.

He sure is, however I'm describing what a previous owner may have done to it in order to reduce pay outs.
