Re: Sega Mad Money actuator jumps out of location, ideas?

I was wondering if that reset bar has been put in backwards. As it'll never reset the slides after a pay out, or has the bottom slide lost its vertical plate for the bar to push against? You can see where the edge of the bar is grinding out the edge of the top slide. It shouldn't even be able to tou...

Re: Aristocrat Starlite queries

If nobody has already mentioned it ..... take gallons of photos as you unmantle it.
It'll save you stamping your feet when you come to remantling time.

Re: Oh Boy Gum vending machine

If possible get the tin with the liquid version and not the aerosol. The one I have in my shed is an aerosol which is a much better idea than dribbling it in. You're confusing me... :-? I exchanged my shares from the liquid to the aerosol product. Dribbling no longer pays the premium. BP :didact:

Re: Sega Monaco restoration

I like the stripe ..... on the right machine. Of course reassembling cases, and chucking mechs back in after the Winter pull down in time for Easter opening was always a last minute job. So, at times it was rare to find (on opening day) a bandit with the correct award card for the reels alongside. A...

Not necessarily the opinion of a purist, but certainly someone who remembers the atmosphere of old seaside and fairground arcades. If you find the stark vicious light of LEDs preferable over the w...
