Hi,    Picked this up.   Runs great and almost everything is there except the big round hole at the bottom.  I assume that was a door with a key to get the coins out.
Any tips on where to start with this?   The coin knob turns and slides out of the fan.     If possible I would like to get the coin op working etc.

Thanks

The first thing I was told to check for is the threads and nut sticking out of the front.  Yours looks like it is missing.  The restoration price just jumped up a notch.  Kim can still restore it though. ๐Ÿ‘ I have a single speed he repaired that works perfectly and a three speed heโ€™s currently working on. Heโ€™s the man on coin ops. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Anthony. You are missing the nose gears, coin knob,coin door, counter and perhaps other items inside. I also don't see a blade and cage. You are looking at a considerable amount of money.

Thanks,  I do have the cage and blade,  I had it on the bench exploring.     It appears all the coin op stuff is missing,  bummer.

Unfortunately, while some parts are being reproduced for the coin ops, not all are and some are very expensive. I had some parts 3D printed for the internal switches just last month (Kim has all of them), and I know that the continuity screw is being remanufactured by a couple of AFCA members. Those are almost always removed. And, a few years ago an AFCA member made up a run of nose gears, but as I recall they were over $400 a set for just the nose gears. Coin doors are available from Kim, and I think someone else made a run of the nickel knobs as well, you'd just have to post a WTB on the Buy/Sell/Trade page. The bigger problem is that there are about 100 miscellaneous pieces and parts that make a one speed coin op work. With patience and help, you can put one back together, but it will be expensive.  So, hopefully, you didn't pay a lot of money for the fan. Just be patient and keep looking for parts. The attached picture (borrowed from one of Kim's posts) shows all of the internal parts needed to put one together. Then there is the fact that it all has to go together just right to actually make it work! Good Luck with the project!
