Re: Jamieson Roto-Pool, Electrodart etc. manuals, wiring diagram & schematics

You find a "government surplus store" where you'll find abundant quantities of "Post Office Uniselectors" and "Post Office Relays Type 3000". Or at least, I did when I was a kid, since there was a project calling for those items every couple of months in Practical Wirel...

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

The "modern" electronic reels seemed sharp and smooth, seeming to tumble along There was a clever pattern to it. Each display had two sets of symbols - a real set and a teaser set. The teaser set had more jackpot symbols on it to give the illusion of liberality, but it would never stop on...

Re: Can someone ID this bandit please

The full name of the FOK is the Front OK Vendor. It used to have a mints vendor in the front. That's been replaced on this variant with a custom non-vendor front.

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

In the (about) ten years since this thread was last active, I came across a Bally 'Mazooma Bell", which is a close relative of the Gold Cup, and thought it might be helpful to share some pics of the innards. These Bally machines are completely different from the more familiar Keeney and Games f...

Re: Bingolett..... help please!

Does your Bingolette not have a circuit diagram inside? Here, I'll post one for you in German I'm afraid. The six contacts at the end work the payout solenoid, as you should be able to follow from the diagram. The relay that self-sticks is the anti-cheat relay, aka the tilt relay. There's very littl...

Re: Bell-Fruit Gum Company: Fact or Fiction?

Frank - delighted to meet you! I well remember your song. I remember dancing to it at "The Ship" disco in Dymchurch the night I had sex for the first time with the girl who became my wife. That was a good song to be remembered for (and a good thing for me to remember it by). But I never co...

Re: The Peter Simper Stabilizer Revealed

I had an early ACE microprocessor controlled machine - perhaps you'll recognize it. It is the only piece of electronic equipment I've ever come across that used the Intel 4004, the first microprocessor ever made.

Re: Sega mechanical slot machine

The yellow produces 25V with respect to the orange, and the red produces 25V with respect to the black (common). So when you connect the orange and the red, you get 50V between the yellow and the black, and 25V between the orange/red and the black.
