Chrome coin slot for Sega tokens

Postby mufunyo » October 12th, 2017, 12:55 pm

I recently bought a lot of Sega tokens from rancor, and after modifying my mech to take them, I noticed that they wouldn't fit through my chrome coin slot. I'm contemplating filing the opening to make it bigger :fastlove: but later realised there might be ready made slots that already fit such coins. Considering the low price of such a small part in general, it's definitely not worth the savings to file my existing slot down, that is IF such slots are available at all. Does anyone know? Thanks!

I have that exact problem, I wanted to change my cabs from yen to euro, but they are too thick. I bought a couple of replacements form alixpress which are wide enough but the screw holes wont align with the cab ones. I ended filing them down, but damn does things are hard...

"The first thing to do before adjusting anything is to ensure that the coin will actually reach the coin validator within your cab. i.e. will it go through the coin slot? "

hmmm :think:

Yeah, I did that by simply removing the coin slot :awe: but the ʃ-shaped slit that remains is kind of unsightly, hence this thread.

If this is for home use only, why don't you get a handful of 100 yen coins from rancor?

Filing out my existing chrome slot ended up not being more than a 5 minute job. :thumbupright:
