Question
Keeney
Keeney  
Hello Roger,
I recently purchased a Keeney 5/10/25 cent 3 way super bell slot in Phoenix and had shipped to IL. It still runs great. I am looking for an operators/ repair manual. Have seen some on E-bay but not for my machine. Also the 2 cherry and any position on a lit line does not always pay? Any thoughts on this. Photo attached.  Is there any bells or whistles when the super bell is hit? Have not hit it yet to know.Thanks in advance for you help.

My Three Way  
I need the reel glass for mine, and I do have a lead on one, and that machine also has that left side glass that your missing, but only if I can get the guy to sell me the glass I need. if I do get anywhere on this, I'll try to get that left award glass for you also.

Nice machine Craig!

I seen this one for sale, as I have one (a three way# myself and I broke the reel glass #the center glass) so I have been searching for a replacement. I have had mine for maybe 20 years or more. The only manual I have see for these, and I have an original one, is the Instruction Manual for Keeney's Bonus Super Bell single and two chute convertible replay models, of 1946. If you don't have this manual you can get it at this website:

It is on this page:

I think for the most part the two and three ways are close and this manual should work very good for you. I really like the three ways, it is one big bugger and a lot of fund to play! As for your problem, it could be something as simple as contacts or wiper boards needing cleaning as it sounds like an intermittent problem, also wire brush any pin plugs as they corrode and cause problems and lose connection because of corrosion on the plugs.

Thank You

Thank You

Expertise

I am an expert on old coin operated machines, slot machines, trade stimulator's, jukeboxes, old arcade machines, etc. I have been identifying these for people who respond to my web site listed below, for a few years now. In almost all cases I am able to tell them about their old coin operated machines, the year, the value, and other general information about their machines. I do not know much about soda vending machines, coin banks, or scales, but I will try to help you with these if I can. Please email photo's to: info@coinslots.com My web site is at: http://www.coinslots.com

Experience

I bought my first slot machine, a .50 Cent Mills Black Cherry in 1969 and have been hooked from that time, I still have that Slot machine! Before that I found a open barrel full of old scraped jukebox wall boxes behind a restaurant, I wanted them all but never took a one of them. Anything that took a coin drove me nuts!

Organizations
C.O.C.A. and other slot and coin operated machine groups, associations, groups, and clubs.

Publications
Many, the Coinslot magazine, always juken, Coin Slot Journal, Slot Box Collector, and others that I don’t remember at this time.

Education/Credentials
Graduated from Ballard High School in 1969, went to Edison Technical Collage for a couple of years taking welding and metal fabrication, tig, mig, heliarc, also arc and gas welding and fabrication. Then Apprenticed under a slot machine technician who worked in the slot machine industry Reno Nevada, and set up bar poker progressive machines in the casino's, and repaired machine and did the repairs on slot machine circuit boards there. He also was involved in the 2 hand dealer's market and bought and sold machines at the casinos auctions for the secondary market, which includes selling used machine overseas. I learned a ton from this man; he always had the correct answers and took the time to teach me the business. My interest and knowledge in other and older coin operated machine is for the most part, self-taught. It's been my passion from back in 1968 and before, my thirst for knowledge about these machines has kept me more interested over the years, and keeps me searching for more information even today. I have meet and talked to book authors on these machines, attended hundreds of coin operated shows and auctions, and I stay with that to this very day.

Awards and Honors
Take a look at my allexperts rating, and my guest book, links to these are at http://www.coinslots.com Also you can check my 100 percent rating on ebay, as I have been there with ebay from their day one, I am user coinslots at ebay. My other awards come from the very people that I deal with, I always make them happy, no matter what it takes, but they always are happy anyway as the countless thank you letters testify to me, so I know I am doing right, and the best I can. I have found so many hard to find parts for people, I hunt them down and don't stop until I find what is needed to get that customers machine running again and back to life, that is my main goal.

Past/Present Clients
