Jennings Century

Postby sam2002 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 1:09 pm

Hello all
I was lucky enough to pick this machine up a few years back . It needed an original vender door took a few years to locate the proper door , the one that was on the machine was fabricated from fiberglass. Have to say the person that made that door dida pretty nice job construting the door .
The castings were covered in liquid chrome (silver paint) then the trim was painted in several colors . Mediocre paint job at best . The vender switch that renders the machine inoperable didn’t function , the skill stops also were not working .
There is a bug on the center star wheel blocking the jackpot symbol , therefore no jackpot can be hit ! ( shame on that operator ! )
So I did what I thought was right for this machine stripped all that crappy paint off and gave it a fresh new finish !
Tuned the mech up , got all its functions up and running vender , skill stops etc. left the bug intact !
Very interesting machine with this many options skill stops , gold award , and vender .
Heres some pics thanks for looking .
Sam

hi sam, dint know you had moved....with regards to the bug, it reminded me of a collector about 20 years ago found a bunch of extraordinays at a church. he ended up buying about 20 of them i think. years before they hid them under the stage, they were using them for casino night as a means to raise funds for the church.....every one of them had bugs in them!
