    Default Nishijin "A" Technical Animation

    I've made a technical animation of the mechanical parts of a Nichijin model A or style A machine.

    I made it mainly for people who aquire these games and need an understanding of how they work to help aid their repair. I don't think it will offer anything new to the more knowledgeable people here, except maybe a few minutes of entertainment but I am hoping that someone will find it useful.

    I named the parts to fit their function as necessary, but I don't think the names are universal. I left out the more simpler things like the lock and door latching mechanisms and other brackets because they're easy to figure out and/or wouldn't aid to the understanding of it.

    Have fun!

    That is unbelievable. Sheer talent. I am impressed. You just replaced 100 other videos that were trying to do what you just did. I will link that on my website tonight.

    I really enjoyed that. I don't know much about vintage machines so that was very helpful.

    Bravo Brava !!!

    Who is playing which theater pipe organ with the excellent music from "South Pacific " ? ( Very right on spot with the music choice !! )

    This animation is the Best that I have Ever seen !! The Science Channel and Discovery and History Channel might just want to show this video on one of their shows

    Thank you very much for the generous compliments.
    I'm not sure about the music composer. A couple of things fell into place purely by chance, such as the "Tinkerbells wand" (I forgot the instrument name) that plays as the balls leave the hopper empty scale and a couple other places.

    thanks-Now AI have to see if I can get out of my honey do list and run downstairs. It looks like I might be missing the moving reset arm or it may just have gotten twisted. Thanks again-What is on your video is so helpful.
