  • What Coin Door to get.


    Im thinking about getting a coindoor for my lowboy

    I really like the atari/happ style ones but ive found them quite rare or expensive in aus and shipping seems expensive cos of the weight

    My other option is a simple one like the one for $35 from ozstick.
    Its simple but does everything i need it to do.

    So whats your opinions? what do you use?

      I went with the Ozstick $35 jobby, I mounted it the other day to see how it looked & was wrapped, would look good on the lowboy.

      Had I seen happs new coin mech before I ordered this one I may have ended up getting this.

      Will cost about $50 bucks Fedex postage thou.

        doesnt that one only have a 25c US coin slot? do our AUS coins fit the same sizes?
        First rate noob.

          I'm pretty sure the Aussie 20 cents is the same size as the US 25 cents.

            Nope, quarters are in between our 10c and 20c in size.

            Just went looking for the ones I brought home in 2002 but remembered I took them to Guam in December and spent them so unable to measure for you.

              they are different size and a 20c piece will not work in a quarter slot, but the actual coin mechs are interchangable so you can always grab a cheap 20c mech and put it onto the happ faceplate.

              I really like the happ ones.
              but i dont think there is anywhere selling them in australia

              and shipping for such a unit is too expensive so it looks like ill be going for a ozstick on unless a happ one becomes available in Aus in the next 2 weeks

                Will the slot in the faceplate be big enough for a 20c piece though? Don't know how much play they figure into them.
