Still do not know the model or brand but think it's a Mills. Has been setup to not pay out.
Video coming soon.





1088 nickels been through it. I found about half of them jammed with dimes and pennies in the coin-mech chute.  oops



Inside where the magic happens






A fuse was blown. A temp fix to check if it is the fuse or the circuit. Was the fuse!




The controller was checked or refurbished in 2014 based on the date mark.



The reel assembly is a simple front-load setup. Remove one wing bolt and it slides out.


The reel pawl is worn and it appears someone ground it down. It's only grabbing 1 row deep of teeth on the reel cogs.
It should be grabbing 2 to spin fast. Talking with the owner to find out how to proceed.

I found the make and model.

It's a Space Manufacturing Company model "All Jackpots" circa 1965

Unfortunately, I can not find parts for the action so it looks like I'll be making an adjustable claw for the reel pawl or I'll stack some beads with the TIG and shape it to work with what's there.
