Mr badpenny, that's what I will call empathic ability! Thanks all for the info. I will sort it out. Sometimes we want to have what we can't get. Mr treefrog, yes indeed it did come with the back door! So I'm still very happy with the machine and now have to find the hours to work at it.
I'm grateful for your help. !!THUMBSX2!!

They are interesting, will have to get some of my spares out to compare them. The top one looks like a modified fish mouth escalator, which does protrude out and is different in shape.

By the way Aristo, that's not the Copper Sega escalator from the machine you sold me ;-) ......soooo rare these and never come up for sale....

TF, I have no idea, but I picked up a Copper Sega, with another 12 machines at Tennants many years back and decided I would keep one and that was the Copper Sega missing a few bits including the escalator, (had rolldown). It's now complete but I don't have any pictures since completed. I also bought another in the last 12 months off a member here

GP

The picture inside will give dutchboy an idea of what the simple rolldown looks like too, so I hope that helps.

No sir, it wasn't a failled project. The older people who owned it were moving and owned it for about 35 years. The lady told me if the machine was stuck she throws some coca cola over the mech till it will work again !PUZZLED!
Now i'm start working at the advert.

Greetings!
The usual Great British cure is if it doesn't behave, then you hit it with something. When I was a child, that was the treatment I had! As for the escalator, many machines lost them in 1971 when the decimal coinage arrived. The Shefras "bent coin rejector" was substituted and, although it did not appear so attractive, it rarely jammed up.

Hello, I’ve recently purchases this Mills one arm bandit from auction thinking it’s just another standard machine, but reading through this forum I may have got myself quite a rare machine?
It has a Mills mechanism on old penny play with the escalator but no jackpot, would the escalator been fitted at the Mills factory or fitted at a later date?
By the look of it, it has not seen the light of day for over 30 years, and need of a complete overhaul.
Any comments would be gratefully received.

Welcome Jelly,

Looks like a good project to start with. In terms of rare, I assume you refer to the 1D escalator where yours has the coins going across the front window, which is certainly less common, as most 1D conversions had the nasty drop escalator in the previous post or they modified the Mills original. Yours is also a modification to the original Mills, where the two coin slides on the rear have R&W on them (for Ruffler and Walker). These appear to have a single tooth to push all the other coins along, which is why they are all bunched up. I guess they had these made for the purpose and must have worked, as roll down modifications were made for reliability...

Does it work? Also, is it an oak cabinet under the Formicaa? If so, great... Also, do you have the back door (difficult to get hold of)?

Ask any questions if you need help, !!THUMBSX2!!

Thanks treefrog,
It works OK but is missing two springs on the payout fingers. The cabinet is chipboard under the Formica. I have the back door and also the cash box.
