Ok, i know this is an odd one, but i'm a stickler for things looking "just right"

My cabinet came with 3 coin-mechs fitted, all working, amazingly, however one is missing the loop that catches the coin returns at the front. Its like a U shaped bar of metal that is screwed thru from the back of the coin-mech. I'd imagine by the look of it that its a fairly common part.

Anyone got one of these going spare want to part with it? Let me know! :)

Thanks :)

A good idea. Sorry, it's kind of hard to describe what i'm talking about.

If you're worried about that I'm surprised the odd coloured mech doesn't bother you.

lol, it does, but thats a lot harder to find, and costs more :)

Also, its not AS noticeable at standing height :)

Not exactly the same and I'm unsure if they make a size that is correct, though perhaps a standard U bolt might do the trick?

I believe these are what you're after.
I bought some 20c coin mechs awhile back that had the holes riveted where the loops go. I emailed the OP and he told me they do it because people break off the loops and stick a bit of wire through the hole to rack up free credits, anyway he sent me up a bag of loops and your welcome to some.

They sure do look like it ArcadeKing! I only need 2.. I'll PM you an address and you can tell me how much you want to cover postage, i guess they'll fit in a 50c envelope, I'm happy to pay that postage costs ..

I'm guessing mine have just gone walkies at some point, coz the holes have not been covered up, which would make it all the easier to poke free credits :)

Thanks again tho, this forum has been invaluable to me so many times in about 2 weeks so far! :) 100x better than usenet ;)
