Better yet, how do you remove them?
I thought I'd try removing the side rails from a mid-50s Bally bingo and quickly discovered I didn't know what I was doing. I first suspected that the rails were nailed straight down from the top center. I didn't see any signs of wood filler to give away the nail locations, and using a rubber mallet to pound upward on the bottom of the rails didn't cause them to budge at all, so I removed the cabinet inner metal liner and discovered four fasteners that may be holding the wood rails. Trouble is, after clamping the body for stability, using a punch and hammer on the fasteners also didn't do any good, and I think I'm on the wrong trail. Can someone set me straight on the best way to remove the side rails?
