What is the name of the game? Is it one of those upright machines?
Thanks

Hello Roger!

Mills Pinball Slot - mfg 1937
Standard Mills mechanism - (no reels drums) with added wiring for the lights

wiring schematic would be helpful  - as it has a extra stepper search unit on the side that's actuated by a coil (one stem per play)
would guess it to display some lights prior to the payout?

Hi Kaptkid,

Thanks for posting the photos, it sure is the "Flasher" and I have seen this in the books before I think, but I was thinking it might be one of those upright flasher slots, i didn't know the name of this one was "flasher". Interesting, the one piece casted leg caps are the same as the Mills "Railroad" of around the same time, are the legs. I have a "Railroad" that is complete now but I still need to get it working sometime, it's on my list. The payout unit in your Flasher looks different than the one in the Mills Railroad, so that is not going to help you much. Have you tried asking some of the larger pinball guys to see if they have any paper on this one? Now that I am sure of what you have I'll keep my eyes and ears open to see if I can find anything on this one also. I do have one sheet of paper on mine and it was found inside. This thing just has to look cool with all those symbols flashing, it's neat! Thanks for sharing the photos. I sent you the schematics paper and a photo via email as I couldn't reduce the size any more to make them fit here.
