"I used blades from replacement AC Plugs for the plug into the receptacle."

Mr. Guest - just wanted to thank-you for posting your idea on using the AC plug blades.  Saved me a ton of time, it was cheap and they fit nice and snug.  

Thanks... Bryan

I would like to thank the board and especially JohnieG for the great info. on setting the coin mech to free play.  I missed the most recent diagram attachment but managed to get the free play set-up and work today.

I have a coke 63 that now vends bottles through the change door.  When you put your finger through, it raises the clear plastic coin door flap, which then hits the push switch and your off to the beer hall!

I've got another machine with a busted coin mech and may want to experiment with free vend on this one too.  Anyone else put the push button in another place?  I heard that a guy set one up at the bottom of a machine, so you gently tap it with your foot and it vends.  Anyways, thanks again guys!

Before throwing any of those broken coin mech.s away, you might want to cut that Jones plug off. They come in handy when installing a bypass switch.

Sometimes I hack up the slug rejector on the mech so the contact switch can be placeso the coin return lever will hit it when pressed.  That way I can use the Jones plug and not have ugly wires hanging out of the socket.  You can Hide everything in the gutted mech and when you open the door it looks nice and stock.

Is there any simple way to safely wire BOTH free play and a working coin mech at the same time?

Sure is. Just wire to the exposed wires under the Jones plug. All your doing is tripping the relay,
doesn’t really matter if you do it with a switch or coin mech.
Here’s what I did, I wanted to vend soda the usual way but have one column (button) for beer.
I wired a micro switch and stacked it on top of the selection button micro switch and
adjusted the timing so the selection switch would click before the relay switch. This setup
would vend free beer at the push of a button (pay for pop, but free beer. I always said it was
to keep from bootlegging).
As it turned out, the grandkids got the hang of playing with the beer button and I would find
my workbench full of beer that I would have to put back into the machine.
Now what I have is a remote car starter wired in by way of a relay. The remote start unit is 12v
so I took the 24v from the coin mech and ran it to one of those voltage reducers from JC Whitney
for 24-volt systems using 12-volt accessories in old cars. The antenna is hid behind the tag in the button.
If I want a beer I just press the start button on the remote. I have had lots of fun with this setup!
No more benches full of beer getting warm.
