Sega Mad Money payout fingers

Post by chopper »

I have a Sega Mad Money and someone has messed about with a couple of vertical payout fingers stopping them from pushing the other fingers out of the way.
Does anyone have any or know how I can get a couple?
Thanks.

Well, they vary due to their needing to reach different horizontal fingers without tripping the remainder.
The only one that reaches all of them is the jack pot.

There are two common reasons for what you describe.
One is, that somebody has removed them for cleaning or out of curiosity and then put them back in the wrong order. The solution being to work out which does what and should be where.
Two is, an operator has chopped a bit out of the bottom to stop high pay outs dispensing the full amount. The solution for this one being to either weld/solder the missing bit back in. Alternatively trace its outline including the missing bit onto suitable gauge sheet and fretsaw yourself a new one.

Thanks,
A couple of the fingers have had a bit cut out. I think solder will be the way to go. I hope it holds.

If you are still looking, I might be able to dig some up. These fingers are 2 mm thickness and fit both slots in the grid at the top. Years ago, there were 2 thicknesses. Most fingers were 2.2 mm but the star and melon spaces in the grid were a bit thinner. Before metrication took over, most fingers were 16 SWG steel. My fingers are not cut away near the bottom and will pay the jackpot. You will need to carefully cut the notches at the bottom for other payouts.

I have to find them first! They might be at my brother's house. On the other hand... they might not. If you are local, no problem. I live in Hedge End (SO30) I don't run a car any more as I am now retired.
