    Cheap roll down coin mech

    I wasn't looking for this but found it on an eBay seller's site. It has speed & switch adjustments. Cheap $26.67AUD from China.

    Looks nice. Need a guinea pig to try it out and see how it connects up to new and old games.

    Check the specifications of what size coins they can use, the ebay one linked above wont work with most Australian coins.

    Ebay specifications:
    Coin thickness: 1.7mm-2.3mm
    Coin diameter: 22mm-27mm

    AU coins:
    $1 coin 3mm x 25mm
    $2 coin 2.8mm x 20.5mm
    20 cent 2.5mm x 28.65mm
    10 cent 2mm x 23.6mm
    5 cent 1.3mm x 19.41mm

    If the ebay specs are correct, 10 cent coin will work, none of the others will.

    Is it for 'fun' to put in a home machine or for location?

    If it is for location I'd steer clear from the cheaper chinese coin mechs as they will end up costing you more in lost income when they have an issue than you will save by buying one.
