    Just took apart & cleaned my first score reel, the 0 - 9 reel, for 1964 Williams Heat Wave.

    The unit keeps track of 9 & 0 mechanically. There are also contact points, apparently for each digit.

    Why does the machine need to know the digits besides 0 & 9?

    Why does the 10 - 19 reel have only half as many contacts?

    It keeps track so it knows whether you matched or not.

    Other reels are for replay threshold values.
