Title: USS-8-64 Sign Issues
Post by: CJ1980 on April 23, 2019, 06:24:05 PM
Hello, I am new to post. I've recently bought my first machine and it is the USS-64 attached. Ive got a couple questions that hopefully y'all can help me with.

1st-The sign I bought is 3/4 of an inch to small all the way around. Any easy way to mount this? I was thinking about ordering a custom made black metal frame online and just fitting it in there somehow. IDK

2nd-Id like to wire a florescent light behind the sign. Ive looked at old post and still don't know the way to do this due to the fact that I'm illiterate in electric work. If someone could dumb it down I would appreciate it. I was thinking about taking the "direct change light " wire up to that space and wiring it in. Don't know if that will work. Surely there is an easier way. I have the machine set to free vend so Im not concerned about that light. Thanks!

Kind of. I bought a different USS—64 that had a light up sign. Still looking for a sign frame

Thought Moondawg did a write up on this. Can't find it with search. General idea of where one is in the shop. Will post photographs if find it.

   I use the original steel panel from the machine, cut out all but a 3/4" border from the face of it with a jig saw, paint then install the plastic sign in it.
There is usually always a dedicated wire coming off the Jones plug just for this optional light.
