Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Each of the five books in the Owner's Pictorial Guide series is the most comprehensive work ever published about the particular slot machine covered. They are original works, not reprints of old service technician's booklets; they begin with the basics and teach theory, thereby enabling the reader to overcome any problem the machine may have. Whether you have one or several of the particular machines covered, you will want these extraordinary books in your library.

From the Back Cover

Do you know . . . the first thing to look for when the machine won't pay off on a winner? How to determine the odds of the machine? The simplest way to change the odds of the machine? How to diagnose problems by using only your ears? The easiest way to observe and repair faulty jackpot operation? How to free play the machine in the cabinet? How to properly lubricate almost all moving parts by loosening one screw? How to clear any coin jam in less than two minutes? How to set the time for a complete play cycle of the machine? The quickest way to empty coins out of the machine? The quickest way to fill the machine and jackpots with coins? How to convert winning combinations to check payouts?

If the answer to any of these questions can benefit your collecting and working with the Mills bell slot machine, then this book is an absolute must! All of these maintenance tricks, as well as thousands more, are revealed inside this illustrated and easy-to-use manual!

If you own a Mills slot machine you need this book. Detailed information on machine breakdown, lubrication and cleaning, theory of operation. It has gotten me past many otherwise hard to solve problems.

Have been restoring Antique Slot machines for 30 years. I have all of the Mead
Publishing Company books on the subject. They are the BEST!! I had the first
edition of the book I just ordered, bought it back in the late 70's. I purchased
this edition because I needed info on the "Gooseneck" 1920's vintage machines.
Always a great help and worth the price. Thanks,
Allen Osborn, Carson City, NV

This book is very easy to understand and is loaded with excellent photographs. Although my slot machine is a different Mills model, the book still was applicable and easy to follow. I have never worked on a slot before... yet this item, although somewhat expensive, makes the task doable and is worth every cent.
