      Hi guys

      I’m considering buying a Seeburg D-3WA wallbox and converting to MP3.

      Please can anyone give any tips on how to enable freeplay on these units ?

      Many thanks 😊

      Hi Simong_

      Either wire a monetary push switch to one on the coin switches probably best to use the quarter switch, so when pressed it will give 6 credits which will allow 3 selections to be made.

      Or you could register credits using the coin switch then disable the subtract credit solenoid so it will always stay in credit.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks Scudie

      I bought the box in the end – I paid over the odds for it, but it’s in almost perfect condition 😁

      So far, everything seems to be working well mechanically and the good news is that it appears to already be configured for free play 😊👍

      Now I just need to find stock of some 1.5 boards to do the conversion

      Wow that was quick, not sure what over the odds is for a 3wa but if it is in almost perfect condition I would think it’s worth paying that little bit more.

      I have seen restored   re chromed ones advertised in the states for around $1000 plus shipping a tax, & remember when items like this arrive in England you would probably have to pay an import tax & VAT on the total amount inc the shipping charge.

      Chrome plating is very expensive and not guaranteed to turn out well, and I can guarantee you that when it doesn’t it’s very disappointing.

      Can you see how the 3wa has been converted to free play ?

      Enjoy it, any pictures?

      Cheers Scudie

      Hi Scudie

      I bought from a local UK source 😊

      I paid £500 including next day delivery

      It looks like it’s been owned by an individual since 2004 and has service stamps from that year by a London based Juke Box specialist company as it has service stickers inside from that year.

      The only odd thing with it was that it had been modified with a wire soldered (visible in photo)<span style=”-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);”> t</span>o prevent the last two title pages being turned and the related buttons had bolts behind them to prevent them being pressed. However, I believe this is normal I’d the unit had been connected to a jukebox with only 160 track selections. I’ve removed the bolts and wire.

      I can’t see any obvious modifications for freeplay.

      Cheers, Simon

      Nice wallbox that!

      If you take into account that the price you paid included next day delivery I guess that cost the vendor in excess of £60 I don’t think you paid over the odds for it, yes you could have waited and probably bought one for £300 to £350  but it may not have been as pretty as that looks.

      Cheers Scudie
