Hello everyone. I thought this was a very interesting machine and wanted to post a few pics of it. My day job is an electronics technician/ IT technician/ Company go to guy for all things technology. ( I also run a large format printer for the company ) I love small company's because the amount of hats you wear never seem to be the same lol.
While electronics is my bread and butter it's also a hobby and I think its very cool that this machine is old school but used to fix modern electronics.

Technology is quickly changing the way that business persons work each day. It is significant for buyers to play a vital part in understanding arising technology trends.

I remember those coil winders from my days at the old Dole Valve Company, later called Eaton Controls headquartered in Carol Stream IL. That was in the 70's.

I use this one about every day. We rewind our own coils for amusement machines ( Plush Cranes and Quarter Pushers ). It came with zero instructions lol. Took me a week to figure out how to use it properly.

I did put a new solenoid on my generator. How much to rewind the old solenoid?

That is a blast from the past. My grandpa was an electrician.

He spent most of WWII rebuilding/rewinding commercial electric motors, since no new ones were available except for defense contracts. Tricky business since they have overlapping windings and you did it by hand, counting the number of windings to keep it balanced. When the motor needed bearings he would smooth the shaft and cast a babbitt bearing right in place.

The only way he could get wire was to trade in scrap copper. He had to burn off the insulation and turn in the mostly pure copper. It would be weighed and he could get same weight of new wire. (Not as much copper due to weight of the insulation.)
Those were the days.

Makes me think of old pinball machines. Thumbs Up

I have lost count of how many pinballs I have fixed. The company I work for used to run them on the amusement route. We still have about 20 left for select locations.

The machines I saw looked like rat's nests (sometimes literally!) of wires, solenoids, lights and actuator rods and levers. Amazing Rube Goldberg stuff! Always liked those Gottlieb girls on the score panels. confusion

Hats off to those who can fix them. Takes patience. Mechanic
