Jamieson Automatics Starlet restoration

Postby special when lit » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:56 pm

Topic split & moved from Jamieson Automatics Starlet Information manual V1.1 - Site Admin.

Well, thanks to Dickywink, I've now got my Autofruit working. There were a few loose wires, & a couple of old light switches & an extra relay, which I presume was some sort of payout limiter, so I binned that & managed to work out where all the wires should go, & managed to get it working & lighting up.
Only problem was, it would only pay out on a 2d win. Bit of head scratching & I realised that the payout discs on the cam timer were in the wrong place. Stripped it down & re-positioned them & now it works ace.
Case was pretty battered & the Formica was missing in places, so I gave it a quick blow over with a rattle can, might re-finish it, sometime in the future.

Very nice - bet you're pleased with that! I will be getting on with mine very soon as, thanks to Dickywink again, I sourced the correct transformer, which is harder to obtain than you think because both Maplins and a large supplier on ebay took my money and said they had despatched them only to tell me when I phoned them a week later that they had none in stock and would not get any in the near future!!!!! :evil:
