Stumbled across this coin operated Nishijin pachinko machine that was made or maybe assembled from a retired pachinko machine then added a coin op cabinet. The machine does light up, but has a few play issues that should be overcome by a good cleaning and some TLC. Hopefully will be able to work this into my current winter schedule.
Would like to find a little more information or a copy of any documents pertaining to these machines from the Performance Enterprise Inc. that was located in Ft. Lauderdale Fl...
Was hoping to come with with some kind of date during the fixing up process but was unable. I am assuming that probably mid 70's would be about right, the vintage of the added electronics and the .25 charge for game play is the reason for the guess..
After a bit and moving to a new home, found a little time a got this old machine operating very well. Grand-kids have been hounding me for some time, well that can now quit and they can play. :-)
Hint: If you have a Pachinko Machine.. NEVER oil them, only clean. That was the whole trouble with this one, someone gave it a 5 quarts when it need none. :-).
