    Default New To Pachinko, Need Help With Machine Identification

    Hello,
    New to Pachinko, so I have no idea what I'm doing. There is a Pachinko machine in a shop near my house that I'm going to hopefully pick up from the store tomorrow. I have no idea the year, model, or any info if this would even work. Can someone please take a look at these pictures and help me identify what this machine is, and if it seems to be in a decent working condition? Also if possible, what would be a fair price for this machine? Want to be sure I'm not over-paying.
    THANK YOU!!

    Welcome to PachiTalk. That is a late 1970's Mizuho All 10 machine. Each payout pays 10 balls. The machine looks like it is complete and in good shape. The top ball hopper on the rear of the machine is taped so it may be cracked or broken, but probably not anything that couldn't be repaired. I am not sure how much machines go for in your area, but I'd try to be into that machine for around $50, no more than $75, but it really depends on what you are willing to pay.

    Okay, cool! Thanks for the info. What kind of balls are used in Pachinko machines? I want to see maybe if there is somewhere near me I can pick some up to try it out after I get it.

    Looks like a nice, clean machine. I would buy it, and pay no more than 50 dollars as suggested above. Buy pachinko balls on ebay. Don't use rusty or dirty pachinko balls unless you want the playfield to get stained from the rust and crud. The balls need to be a specific size to work properly, so I would recommend getting actual pachinko balls. Again, numerous listings on ebay...Have fun!

    Thanks for the help!! Just one last thing, does anyone happen to have some sort of schematic or something I could use to help me make sure this thing is working right so I can get it up and running?

    Welcome to Pachitalk

    50 would be max but that's a Cali price.. no idea what they sell for in Ohio

    the lock is missing (no biggy)

    the track cover looks to be missing (easy to fab one at home in a pinch) ( a few members are 3d printing them as well)

    the lights are not hooked up (easy fix but another bargaining point)

    the aftermarket cabinet looks to be rotten or broken (no biggy but another bargaining point)

    let us know if ya bring it home..

    ps the colors on the playfield are great

    I did bring it home! Just need to do some test to see if I can get it functioning, then I need to get some balls in it and hopefully play. (If it can actually be played)
    Never worked on one of these before so troubleshooting won't be the easiest.
