    I would say that Nishijin machines are more plentiful so probably easier to find parts, but perhaps the Mizuho is in better condition and wouldn't need parts? It is really hard to try to help without photos of both machines or links to them if they are posted for sale online.

    Hi If it helps, I am new to the forum myself and it took me a couple of attempts to work out how to get the pictures I had taken of my machine to attach to my posts.

    The main problem was the original file size of the picture.

    In the end, for me it was a case of copying the picture in to 3D print on my computer and then just crop the picture down and that made all the difference.

    You should be able to do this in the picture file as well and depending on what type you are using it will give you the best option to use to save the picture.

    Just remember you need to be in the advanced posting screen to get access to the attachment icon.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Malcolm

    Having fun with my machine, now I know what a couple of the buttons do, especially after having confirmation that the large black disk shaped object on the bottom left of the machine was a closed of ash tray, as I have now found out that the machine must have been from a no smoking parlour.

    Pachinko is all new to me and from reading up how they work and on this machine together with help from other forum members I discovered that this machine has two fire control options one a black push button on the left and a tab on the fire knob as would be expected. I do not know if this two option control is standard for other machines.

    Not quite sure what stages the animation are building up to for a win and what I should be doing and have not yet seen what a fever round looks like.

    However did have one session when the machine seemed to go into overdrive with all the lights flashing, but no jackpot ball payout.
