    Default Nishijin-Sophia

    Howdy!
    I have a Nishijin-Sophia that I bought in the 1970's. I would like to get it working to give to my grandson.
    For starters...
    Can you tell me the correct dimension for the two front glasses. and will safety glass work?
    What are the correct light bulbs?
    Thanks for your help!

    I like your idea!

    The glass size depends upon the Model. Here is a link to a member's website that has useful information.

    Light bulbs depend upon what voltage you want to provide. There are lots of 12V bulbs that will fit.

    You can also use a 9V battery with 7.5V bulbs.

    Another option is LED bulbs that usually can work with 3 to 12V DC.

    The base is called "flashlight" or E10.

    hard to tell for sure but it looks like it is all there (minus the frame)

    can you tell us what its doing or not doing??

    better (upright) close up pictures of the back would help

    Thanks..
    I'll try a better pic..
    I cleaned it up, replaced the plexiglass and front glass. Dropped a ball in the top and it fell to the bottom.
    Maybe 9V a battery would help?

    Thanks for the tip regarding the lights. I just ordered some 12 volt e10s leds.

    Can anyone help me identify the age of mine? It is a Nishijin Sophia Super DX Its a beautiful day.

    Hello PachinkoLuv69 and welcome to the group How are things in Fenton these days?

    If you could post some pictures then that would be great. Otherwise if you see a sticker behind the glass that shows something around the date of 1950 then add 25 for a rough age of it.

    The ball dump is open. Check Moparformances video on the Nishijin B. He gives a good overview of the machine.

    It was pretty jammed up when I got it. I have to fix the lights and the bell does not ring on payout. I just thuds. I am guessing it is jammed up too. Everything else seems functional otherwise.
