Re: Rotolite Machine Wiring Help Needed

Hi, I think that is the machine that was in the May 2010 issue of The Mechanical Memories Magazine, and was rewired by a very cleaver chap called Richard Brewerton. He would be able to help here, but not sure if he is still active in the hobby? :oops: I think you are correct with your guess, 2 black...

So if this Wheel-Em-In doesn't tilt the play field maybe it just flashes the squares instead and stops on a win like the Skittles machine?

Re: Oliver Whales Treble Chance

You can have this one on me, if it helps?

Re: Novelty candy vendor with missing motor

I doubt you will find it easy to get a working motor as per the original. You could replace it with a modern Parvalux geared motor.
