    Default Double cherry tokens don't work but quarters will

    Hello all,

    I just bought 1,000 Double Cherry tokens from Amazon. They won't work in my Macy (1998) Pachislo machine. The problem is: the Double Cherry tokens attract the magnet and the quarters do not. The quarters work perfectly. But I want to use tokens. What can I do? (I've cleaned the coin mech, adjusted the coin mech and nothing). Thank you!!20190912_100156.jpg20190912_100145.jpg

    Hello, as you know we don't advise, recommend, or discuss using currency in pachislos

    I seem to recall issues with members using those particular tokens, do you have other tokens you can try,

    hopefully other members will pop by with some advise for you

    There is normally a magnet in the coin mechanism that it's only purpose is to catch "slugs".

    I use the Double Cherry tokens and all I did was remove the magnet. There are other magnets in the coin mechanism, but they are not placed to catch slugs.

    So, just make sure you remove the magnet that is catching/stopping the token and no other magnets.

    It should be fairly simple to find the magnet. Just put a token in the coin mechanism and where the token stops, that is where the magnet is.

    Depending what coin mechanism you have, the magnet is normally held in by a screw or some type of locking tabs. I'm not sure what type of coin mechanism is in your model of machine, but being it is a Macy, (once a part of the Azure family), I believe it is one of the "M-series" coin mechanisms. If that is the case then the magnet is held in by one philips head screw.

    Here are some pictures of the M-series coin mechanism.
