Dicapa coin mechs

Post by mikeholness »

I have got 8 discapa coin mechs all with the same problem.

Replaced inner metal cog with the new pound coin mechs a few years ago but gradually they are now all starting to fail.
Pound will just not turn at all in certain persisisions can take coin out try again and might work but 90% of time just won't turn.
Cannot see a way of fixing the issue.
Any help on here would be greatly appreciated.

Spoke to Chris at Skavend and he had loads of mechs with same issue.

Thanks

Mike Holness

Wots annoying is they were always the most reliable toy machines for me before pound change over.
Got 5 machines in my lockup which I can't use and there all in good condition.

I take it nobody's got a solution by sounds of it.
There are discapa machines in most Lidl shops and see lots of them about.
Just wondering how these big national companies get on with them.

Is it not just a case of renewing mech? do they do a replacement for them?

Dremmel machine maybe..... Worth a tinker?

By the way not come back to vending...... Just have a passing interest...

Now selling resin drives..... No better than a tinker with a bit of charm :-)
