    Default Coin Mechs, Hoppers and Tokens

    What are some good (and trusted) sources for the items below...

    Coin mechs (I need 2 for my Bally Midway Satan's Hollow - don't know what came in there originally, just know there aren't any in there now).

    Coin Hopper (bucket, whatever you may call it) for the same above game.

    Arcade Tokens - generic, custom, etc.


    Thanks!

    Or do as I do - beg on KLOV... peopel usually have spares floating around. Ebay too.

    Coin hopper is usually called a 'bucket' or 'box'. Again, lots of places. Probably a little harder to find if you want "original' . Maybe klov or ebay. But try here too:

    I once had a dream of getting custom tokens and coin mechs running on all slots on all machines, then I said fuck it and set them all to free play.

    Sounds like the best solution. But then what do you do for the games that can't be set to free play? Most of mine don't have that option (either with dip-switches or through the setup menu). Fort Cosmos, World Series The Season, Satan's Hollow - no free play option. All I can do is load up the credits if I have anyone over for an arcade party / session.

    I've seen over at KLOV at least one member will rig a microswitch behind the coin reject buttons, then wire the microswitch parallel to the coin switch.

    I was thinking I'd have to add another button somewhere, but I'm not keen on putting additional holes into this otherwise beautiful (and original) cab, so what you mention sounds like a really good work-around, accomplishing what I need to do using only what's there already.
