Re: I'm searching for ......

Of course nowadays Superglue would be the adhesive of choice.
Invisible, instant, permanent fix. What can possibly go wrong with that? :beamup:

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

You appear to trade wives like you do slot machines. :HaHa: I assume they eventually got fed up with being stored 4-deep in the garage? Slot machines are more patient. I don't think the post and spring are anything to do with the hook lever that stops the fan. I was introduced to that feature some t...

Re: Rolatop Eagle

I think I recall seeing it for sale on eBay. The problem with electronic machines is when they go wrong you are often stuffed because the failure is inside a chip and therefore difficult to identify without diagnostic equipment. With mechanical machines you can see the spring or lever that isn't per...

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

I've never been out with a horse Badpenny. I've asked a few out, but they all said "neigh". !!ESCAPE!! Your photo was most useful, and I think we have identified the problem. See a similar shot of my machine below... 003.JPG I appear to be missing the screw or bolt that fits in the hole, the head of...

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

Hmmm... worrying. First you want photos of my wife/girlfriend/au pair, now you want a monkey? You aren't very fussy are you? I assume you want a lady monkey - nothing strange about you I'm sure. :shock: The picture may be a tad misleading as the post is shown pressed against the lever. When you cycl...

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

I asked them both and they declined, which only left the au pair, who was more game than I had expected. Pretty good photos I thought, and far too good to share with you, so I've only uploaded the photos of the slottie. 001.JPG 002.JPG As you can see, the ramp part of the lever bumps into the side o...

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

Aha! I managed to find some time yesterday to pull some of the main mech apart to clean it. I took all the levers off the side and a couple off the back, but stopped short of the payout levers and slides. I ran out of obvious screws to undo, so I chickened out before I had too many bits on the newsp...

Re: Mills Black Cherry Flavour

Well I already have that sixpence you spotted, so the machine didn't cost as much as I thought after all. I can also see a few overstretched springs waiting for me, so I know I'm on the right track. And I think by the time I get it back together I'm more likely to get a bus pass than a coach bolt......
