2 different Mills Vest Pockets?

Postby bell » Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:23 pm

I have two.
One from my Dad and one I bought for parts.
Dads has a “notch” in the upper left front housing. Mounted next to that is a counter.
The other parts machine has no corner notch and no counter.
Neither says “PLUS” anywhere. Both show 20 on payout door.
Explanation?

Your machine is an older generation mechanism found in the green wrinkle painted cabinets. Your fathers mechanism is in fact a "Plus" model. It is interchangeable with non-"Plus" model machines and was probably swapped with another at some time. The only difference between a "Plus" model mechanism and a standard model is the jack-pot counter, they were only placed on the "Plus" models.
FYI, the notch was added to make removing the reels easier, and it does help!

Thank you George. Very helpful.
I haven’t begun to try to fix DDs machine but it appears there are broken parts on both machines. Should I need them, do you know a source for parts?
