I’m looking to buy a 10 cent coin acceptor for my Big Time. I only need the acceptor unit that snaps into the bracket on the coin door. Searched eBay and Pinsude market but no luck. I’m not sure about it’s compatibility with other Bally machines from that era. Anybody have an extra or a lead? It seems to me that bingos are a lot more fun when playing with coins as opposed to a fee play switch.

they're usually called "coin rejectors", and they are still made with the same form factor.

dime ones are less common and can be a bit of a hassle since dimes are the most irregular of the coins due to wear changing the weight.

usually the slot in the rail is big enough for a nickel, and nickel mechs are more common. You'd need the little coin guide trapezoids that screw onto the mech frame to change to nickels, and change the score card if you care.

I probably have nickel and dime mechs someplace, and if not, the pacific pinball museum warehouse has lots which aren't used. I won't likely be at their warehouse for at least a couple weeks, but if you don't find something in the meantime, contact me at the bingo.cdyn.com web site and I'll stick it on the scrounge list.

I'm sure I have a dime mech that will work for you, I'm out in Aurora. What part of town are you in?

When I was looking to replace my quarter coin mech, I went direct to the manufacurer and purchased a nickel mech. I originally thought new mech would be hard to find. I was wrong

The metal slot on the Top of the wooden lock bar is dime sized so I think I’ll keep it at a dime. I suppose the lightness of the dimes also made them less then ideal. Never thought about them being problematic. I plan on having a large jar of dimes for play so will just eliminate the bad ones when I come across them.

I also thought this would be hard to find!

Bally part number is as-277-27

Okorange -I’m in highlands ranch, not too far away except I’m recovering from a ladder accident and can’t drive yet. I’m happy to pay for part and shipping. IM me and we’ll get something figured out.

Thanks all for the help!
