    Parlors in those days had attendants behind the machines. Automated systems were new then.

    Yea, to open the whole front, looks like the 2 wing nuts on the back, as Mopar said. I wouldn't swear to it, but it looks like there's something on the left of the metal frame that might allow you to open the front glass.

    If anyone here gets that, would be interesting to find out more about it.

    Oh, and hello everyone, since I've been absent for a bit.....

    To be fair, the koi fish pattern is really beautiful compared to some of the basic patterns some of the 70s machines have.

    I just finished working on a Daiichi Victory restoration that had the same frame set up. One of the side boards was terribly warped. I'm going to throw away the original frame and mount the machine in a more conventional frame with hinge hardware.
    Be aware that there are "feet" at the bottom of the machine board that nestle into slots in the frame. Those have to be cut off and sanded smooth to allow clearance in a more typical frame. Also would have to add the hinge hardware to the board as there is none on these machines.
