1965 open front,Mills

Postby JHSS-1944 » Sat May 20, 2017 2:31 am

o.k. , I got the cabinet repainted, ect. now need to find a missing part(s). this is the first type mills compact / open front..... no coin hopper or electrical to the coin entry.
what is here & working ,is the 3 florescent lights for the front door. what's missing is the electrical part(s) to connect the power to the mechanics , to the candle light on top / to the switch for the "change girl".
will show what I have.

photo of someone else's slot machine that sold on e-bay or ect., part or parts missing.
1) anyone have a better photo of what is missing ?
2) anyone have the part(s) ?
3) any diagram on how it's all hooked up To what I already have ?
The wires (3) to "change girl" switch was cut, now repaired. slot bought with out a candle light originally , found one that fits perfectly on top , with 2 lights & 3 wires. need the part(s) missing which is the "gang" wire connection & the female plug / outlet. The male plug has 6 flat type prongs.
Would this be hooked up directly to the ballast / transformers , or another separate transformer (which would also be missing) ?? it's only to make 2 top jackpot connections, "through" the mechanics to turn on the candle light.
thank you for your time !

Here are a couple more pics. The change girl switch turns the top red light on. Wires go to the jackpot fingers and looks like one set lights up the $7.50 jackpot light and the other the $37.50 jackpot light. Everything doesn't look like it's wired up on the front of the wiring strip. Tried to show the back side of that and the colors on the 8 prong connector.

Count me in also.
Working on this open front.
All cabinet lights work. No electrics to mech.
Found a candle (ebay) and placed it on top.
Was going to wire 2 long arm micro switches (1 to slides and the other to deep notch reel stop).
I don't have any external reset switches on the case.
Wondering if I am on the right path with this.
I am at a loss as to why the electrical buss strips are so long.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.
Tom

in the pics I posted If you look at the back of the buss strip pic shows all of the wires are connected. The front of the buss strip pic has wires that run to the buss strip that are not all connected. Haven't had time to play with the wiring but think they trigger the lights in the candle for the two different jackpots. Friend had $75 in the machine and it wasn't working. I took it off his hands. Dried lube was the only mechanical issue. Let me know if you need any specific pics.

Thanks.
Nothing is behind the terminal strip (slightly different 2 screw design). Visible wires are from Ebay candle.
Guess I am on my own. But thinking on the right path with 2 long arm micro switches.
Thanks.
