Finally managed to make some space in the shed so I dragged this treasure out of storage.   Won't be a priority but got to have it home so I can tinker as I get time. 

    Havnt been able to find a whole lot of Info on it but luckily found a guy in the Us with one who has been helping me with photos of missing parts etc.   



   It's definately going to be a lot of work the poor thinks been used and abused for way to many years but I think it will be well worth the effort wouldn't be to many floating around specially here

Got a couple of hours tinkering with the old girl Looms a mess and without a schematic it's all guesswork slowly slowly.

 

Also made up the missing section to hold the machine gun

Sorting out a few of the wiring issues.   In order to work some out the gun needed to be disassembled and new wires ran. Some peanut cut them dead level with the pipe.

  So while I had it apart for new wires I decided I'd strip it down and give it some new paint. 
   Still need to strip and varnish the timber gun handles but the aims to get it going so these are not important.

Some progress today target sections all wired up, also got the gun stand wiring repairs upto being able to coin up a game.   

   Now it's bolted back together I need to wire up the contact plate and make a new contact arm.    All stepper need to be rebuilt it I'll do that when I strip the game for a respray.


Here's the funny backgrounds that you can see through the windows good to see spousal abuse was still around in 1957 lol

Well trial number one of my contact arm seems to work pretty well,   Keep in mind all steppers and relays are yet to be cleaned so it's sluggish but ever time the red lights on mean it's been hit
