Buy new and support the goverment? nah, recycle!

 

Also need two S10 face-plates, the single ones as the doubles I have aren't wide enough to cut down the middle. They need to be the ones with the coin return hole.

 

Cheers

 

edit ... do Starpoint do the little round ones?

Thanks for that ... i've had a good look thru Brents site a few times but had missed them.

 

Looking again at photos of the top glass of Spotlight and Hi-Lights, I reckon I could make something reasonable using black perspex as a base ... getting an original reel glass, however ropey, for both machines will be a must tho

 

 

How did these conversions work? Did VFS take new machines from Barcrest or convert ones that had been in use for a year or so?

 

 

The PSU for the NU needs a new cap, does the white plastic thing over the board terminals just prise off if levered hard enough?

no, but i can probably get the screw ones.

the mounting hole is pretty standard.

 

or just use maplins.

or be clever & fit circuit-breakers that fit in the hole - but they cost about 10 times the price of a fuseholder! :D

Little update, think I have most of the rectangular buttons and switches I need now (might still need some legends, AAA ;)) but still after some of the small round buttons if anyone has any?

 

Think i've got most of the missing doors sorted and the mechs and sliders too but still need a couple of single S10 faceplates with coin return hole, or at least one double that I can cut down.

 

Still need some square section coin return/cash box tubes and a fluro mounting bracket, as pictured above.

 

The biggest issue right now, in getting these machines to work, is the missing MPU2 boards and PSU's ... can anyone tell me the difference between a MPU2 PSU and those used in the MPU3 machines? Also, would anyone be interested in swapping their non-working MPU2 for a working MPU3?

A little update ...

 

Triple Chance.

Now running, thanks to Mike for the ROMs, MPU and PSU.

 

Spotlight.

Looking for a pair of Lucky Strike glasses as have a feeling reel order is the same, a cheeky clone by Associated Leisure? Dunno if i'll get away with using SL roms tho but it would be nice to at least have a machine with a face.

 

Nudges Unlimited.

Have found some roms and hopefully the reels, still need the glasses, name your price.
