Mill Coin Payout Mechanism (Mills Railroad)
(mouse over the buttons to see the steps or "PLAY" to see the animation)
This is the opposite side of the mechanism. Note the vertical shaft turned by the screw gear. The wheel at the bottom of the vertical shaft has two posts which activate the ratchet lever as they pass by it. The same wheel also has an ecentric that wig-wags the coin slicer. Coins are stacked in the brass tube after being played.
