My dull and tarnished 6d goes on the Venetian Hotel in Macao.

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Oooh Ta! I think that bracket might be about my level of ability - only one bend in it.
Where is your sense of adventure Raj? I bet you must have lots of stuff you don't know that you haven't got?

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Bollocks! Another piece missing from my machine, as you can see below: SAM_0348.JPG At least this bit should be fairly simple to make. Could you give me some approx dimensions of the bracket please Mr PM? Thank you also for taking the time to draw out the size and shape of the other parts I need to ...

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Heh heh, mad fool.... :lol: OK you asked to see it. I can't even be sure it is part of the mech, I found it loose inside the cabinet but it may just have fallen inside. SAM_0347.JPG I was going to start making some missing bits today but it is bloody cold and wet and I have just discovered my shed h...

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Thank you, that helps a lot. It also solves my problem of why the ratchet wheel isn't advancing. I found a spare curved piece of spring steel in the bottom of the cabinet when I removed the lid and was sure it belonged here, but you have shown me that it is the horizontal part (of the 3 bits I'm mis...

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Blimey! A lot more complicated than I thought it would be. Many thanks for taking the parts off and photographing them for me. I understand the forked bit where the coin slides across the gap, but I've no idea what function the other bits perform. I suppose I won't until I get the coin to cross the ...

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Sorry I've not managed to get back on the site for a couple of days and have missed the recent banter. Thanks for the pic Mr PM - I can see I'm missing some sort of guard/cover plate between the coin validator and the see-saw that fills the various coin tubes, secured by a couple of screws where I m...

Re: Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

Hi BP, Thanks for your reply. You are correct there is a trapdoor above the JP tubes which seems to work via a wheel operated by a pushrod, although at the moment the wheel doesn't advance - but that's another problem. This problem is that my 6d doesn't make it to that trapdoor. I've annotated my ph...

Anyone with a BDR Bristol?

I have just acquired a BDR Bristol 'Bread Bin', mainly because it has a completely different operation to the Mills/Sega mechanisms. It basically works OK but I thought it had stopped paying out until I realised this was because the main payout tube was empty. Looking at the coin path I can see that...
