Was considering putting a switch on the 3w1, my sc1 has no credit unit fitted, I found it’s simpler that way, plus it freed up some space to fit the LED contol unit + remote sensor.

Looks good. Is there enough room to put a switch in the coin slot on the 3W1?26 April 2019 at 20 h 20 min #46165
That’s a very good question that I honestly do not have the answer to at this moment. I will have to dig out the coin entry top casting & take a look. If there’s not enough room I will just remove the little bracket that resets the credit switch. Have been concentrating on the working side of the unit hopefully during the next week I will be able to devote sum time to the visual aspects of the box.

Oh by the way the photo above of my test rig, its connected to a Wurlitzer 5250 not the Seeburg 3w1. I would really like a set of speakers that Wurlitzer produced to fit on the top of 5210 & 5250 Wallboxes but they are apparently very rare & therefore demand a hefty price tag. There is currently a set on a well known auction site with an asking price in excess of £600 .
I intend on building another similar set up but want to make the box disguised or at least more aesthetically pleasing.28 April 2019 at 9 h 09 min #46167
Took a look at the top coin entry casting on the 3w1, looks like you was correct certainly not enough room for a standard push switch.

-for the speakers and to hide more things, you can built a base the exact same size of the bottom of 3W1. Then it’s up to you to veneer, paint it… if you use wood, or chrome it if you can work metal.
-for coin in slot : you could use a low profile switch like these ones :
Only 2.5mm height, then you can glue a coin of your choice.29 April 2019 at 17 h 11 min #46169
The low profile switch is a great idea. Better order quick though with a 13 week lead time… 🙂
Motorcycle speakers would look cool with the 3w1 although the cool looking ones are a bit pricey:1 May 2019 at 8 h 30 min #46170
Thanks for the suggestions, I do have a couple of ideas that I will look into. Have not had a lot of time this week what with one thing or another.

Spotted this for sale last night, it appears to use the internals of a 3w1 in a alternative case, don’t know if it is a home built conversion or if they were commercially available to modernise old 3w1’s.
Cant say as I like it but I have not seen one before, am guessing there should be plenty of room inside for a conversion.

Some conversion were available, but never seen this one. Maybe a DIY.4 May 2019 at 16 h 53 min #46174
Hi yes have seen a few conversions for both wallbox’s and Jukebox’s but have not seen another like this.
Have you heard anything from Fabien recently concerning the buzzing noise?

If anyone fancies a project there is a Wurlitzer 5220 wallbox ( missing its key, and the chrome is pitted) complete with a pair of speakers (again suffering from the damp) and a 1970’s 120 selection hideaway unit (also missing the keys and suffering from damp) for sale on a auction website. Hideaway is full of records, with a reasonable price of £120 or close offer. Didn’t seem bad to me.

Go for it ! Buy it !
I would, only for the wallbox and speakers.6 May 2019 at 1 h 58 min #46179
Not heard anything from Fabien since march 20th.
He had send you audio schematic so that you could check with one of your friend ?
And he was waiting for your answer.6 May 2019 at 11 h 19 min #46180
Good Morning Klaatu
I emailed Fabien on the 28th of March with Andrews suggestions,
I actually forwarded to Fabien the email complete with the attachment that Andrew had sent me.
I received an email from Gaëlle thanking me for the information and telling me that Fabien would be in touch once he had had the time to look into it.
I emailed Fabien again on the 23rd of April saying that I had not heard anything from Fabien concerning Andrews suggestions / the Buzzing noise problem.
Again I received a response from Gaëlle explaining that they were very busy & that Fabien would be in touch soon.
So far I have not heard anything from Fabien.

I was very tempted to buy it, and try to repair / restore the hideaway unit, the 5220 wallbox has been modified with a large coin box added to the underside.
To accommodate this part of the base of the cover has been cut away to allow the coins to drop from the original coin box into this larger box underneath.
But I think I have enough projects at the moment to keep me busy for a while & only a limited amount of time for my hobbies & also there is the issue of storage space.
So I had to put my realistic head on.
