    I am trying to remove the hardware from my Dialed In coin door to get it powder coated. Anyone know the size of these bolts I have circled in red? I can't seem to get anything that wants to work. There are a bunch of them holding the coin mechs on.

    Thanks

    I just checked my Wonka and they are 3/16”. I changed my left coin slot to a dollar and had to file the plastic down so dollar coins would fit. I used a Wiha nut driver as some of the screws were driven below the surface of the plastic and it was small enough to fit and still rotate the screw. Here is a link to the nut driver I used: https://www.wihatools.com/precision-nut-driver-3-16-x-60mm-6341

    Yes, a 3/16" nutdriver works, but it must be in good condition. The factory over-tightens those screws so they sink deeper into the plastic. This makes it harder for the nutdriver to grip the screws.

    Thanks guys. I tried a 3/16 put couldn't get it to grab. I will try another one.

    I ordered and used this Wiha nut driver and it worked perfect. Nothing I had would work and my regular sockets would never get between the two coin mechs in that tight space.

    Thanks for the tip.
