    Default Door parts for sankyo machine

    So, need some tips or leads on some parts for the door on my sankyo machine I'm about to start working seriously on.

    I was doing some initial check-out on the machine, and I noted the latch for the front panel (the glass/plexiglass) was sticky, felt like some old grease had solidified in there (it had)

    However, when I went to take it apart to clean and re-lube it, the middle piece of the mechanism literally crumbled to pieces on me. The cast aluminum had just given up. And looking at the other piece of the latch, the other is about to do the same.

    Does anyone have a line on a replacement latch, or parts for the latches? I've been looking a few weeks and haven't seen any parts listed online, And the latches seem to be fairly generic, so I'm guessing I can get the latch from several types of machines.


    The pic is the machine in question.

    I'll take some pictures of the part when I get home today.

    But it's the cam in the latch you pull to open the front glass.

    OK, here's some pics, a little later than promised :P I haven't put the part back in, seems sort of pointless.

    The second picture, I'm trying to get a shot inside the other half of the latch, to show the same part in that half is about to do the same thing.

    Had the same thing happen to me on another Sankyo machine. I believe I still have that latch floating around in a bin. (parted out the machine) So I might be able to help you out with a replacement arm.

    100 machines and counting...

    Just in case anyone else is digging in their parts box, this latch is 6 inches center to center.
