    Default Third's the charm

    I got this for 50.00 on ebay and i thought it was so neat with the wings out from the center. I had no idea it was hiding extra win spots. 11 different ways to win. It was an ebay chance that I had no idea what kind of working order it was in. After a lot of elbow grease and time, it has turned out to be the coolest yet. I am totally fascinated with all of the variations I see and its hard to ever see the same configuration twice. Here are before and after shots. Do the configurations all have names? any ideas the name of this one?


    I would love to see pictures of peoples cabinets. My husband and I do woodworking and not afraid to make something but I would love to see some ideas. I went though quit a few posts under cabinets and saw some but if anyone has not shared over there I would love to have some ideas.

    I have that machine. Nice machine, but a bit of a mix of themes. The wings seem to have an American Indian vibe, the center attraction very modern. What I like most is how the center spins and stops very precisely, as if it were powered.

    Nice score!

    Center feature has a lead weight, works on gravity.

    Some folks call the wing design the phoenix.

    Here are some excellent plans to consider: (not mine but nice!)
