    Hello All
    Got a customer who brought in a 1940 Bally "Dandy". I am in need of some things for it but am curious of this light wheel that I found in the bottom of the cabinet. Anyone tell me what it is and does? Also is this one complete? Looks to be missing something on the backside.
    Also any help on locating fuse sizes for this game as well as legs. Any help would be great.
    Mike

    It's a projection unit that keeps track of the credits earned and projects them onto a frosted glass, probably in a corner of the playfield. See one from a '39 Bally Champion at: https://www.funwithpinball.com/resources/1939-Bally-Champion#ProjectionUnit

    It's basically a heavy duty step unit with a bulb, lens and mirror. There may be a credit knock off switch under the cabinet too.

    Thanks! I saw your site. Quick question, did you happen to get melted rubber on the playfield for the bumpers you were working on? On this game, a lot of the rubbers have melted and there are little drops of hard rubber all over the playfield. If I lightly scratch them with my fingernail I can get some to scrap off and not take paint. I am hoping there is a better way to deal with this.

    Plastic razor blades might work. Solvents (alcohol, mineral spirits, naptha, etc.) might work too but you'd need to experiment with them.
