Re: Where/ how make CP replicas.

Reagarding the metal part, I've seen some have like a soldered part where the mounting plate goes, while others have just 4 screw soldered. Which is the correct way?

This is great. I have noticed some Blast panels have more of a yellow blue look. Which one is the correct color scheme?

You mean hours of work in the entire machine, or just sanding and polishing?

I have a friend who used to work in the area, and has a contact with a company that does laser cutting and CNC cutting. Regarding the material, it's something called "zincor" but i have no idea how to call it in English. What is CNC? Ok, that is something, I can try looking for that at least. Thank...

Best Weiya Chassis

Hi,

I am going to China and thought I could bring a couple of Weiya chassis back that are compatible with my candy cabinets, in case they one are not woking because of the chassis. Which model should I aim for, if I am going to use it in Blast and New Astros?

I have turned my monitor front panel and contrast controls to the max from the front of the cab. But the image is still quite dark and dull. See the image:

Candy coin slot

I am finally managing to tweak the japanese coin mech to euro coins, but the problem is I just realized the coin slot in my candies are to thin for euro coins so they won't even pass through. Any idea how to sand the insides or where to buy euro coin thick coin slots?
