    Oh, I think the machine is incredible,and thought hard about what to do,
    but,long story short,It has electrical problems that were beyond me,and would benefit, greatly, from a top to bottom cosmetic restore,

    and at this moment in my life,I just simply don't have the time or money (or space) it would take to do what I've seen emmadog do to his machines,
    (the last thing I wanted, was to stick it on a shelf or in a closet and it just start collecting dust)

    I think I'm getting to that stage with my ex-comp controlled pachis (3)... I'm just frickin' HOPELESS with electrical stuff like this (can't even solder)
    and it just drives me batty the 3 of them staring at me, like they only need one tiny thing tweaked each, and they know what it is,
    and it's a secret they'll not reveal to me for rum or money...

    I might put 'em on local eBay and see what happens... not much, I expect.

    There's this thread that started September, looks like you've already seen it, but I'll pop the link here anyway just in case it's of use

    Haven't had much time to continue on with the machine but I did find a Stateside supplier that carries the 3 (2 different types) Texas Instrument chips on the circuit board. I don't know if I'll need them but I ordered a couple of each just in case.
