Universal Hopper Rubber Roller
« on: May 06, 2017, 01:56:20 PM »

 I have a Universal video poker game that works fine but, the rubber roller in the hopper is starting to disintegrate (getting sticky). I am looking to replace it but, I know that Universal parts can be hard to find.


 Is this part something that can still be found or, do I need to look at having one made?

I don't even recognize that part! Looks like a very early high speed hopper.


Definitely would fabricate a new part.

Uniman,


 Funny you replied today. The roller gave up today. She's sticking to the coins causing jams now.


 You are correct that it's a high speed hopper. Shoots coins out like a Gatling Gun.  :yes:


 I had a feeling that I was going to have to fabricate one. But, I'm going to look at a couple of coin counter parts first since they are a bit of the same design.

 Well, I'll follow up on this.  I decided to go ahead and make one.  Purchased some Buna-N material (2"x30") for $8.78.  Used a hole saw to get a slightly oversized disc then I put in on my mini lathe, turned it down and cleaned it up. 30 min. later I had a roller that actually seems to work!  :cool_thumb_up: No more sticky black quarters!  :yes:


 Luckily, some of the old rubber left on the shaft made for great adhesive when I put the new one on....
