Fragramatics sells the largest vacuum in the WORLD!  Just what you need… a vacuum with everything on it.  Talk about everything being in a huge knot every time someone uses anything.  Just seems like a bad idea.  Couple that with the unit probably being hard to work on for repairs like the older models.  But I think they look the best in the business though, which is good except for the ugly flower.  Well I thought it was fine until Greg pointed it out to me now I hate the flower.

Just a large air compressor… that’s all.

This was an interesting product.  A basic J.E. Adams vacuum with a credit card reader, bill acceptor and coin acceptor.

C-2000 Hamilton changer controller – Update

Randy got my changers working before the weekend!  The only problem is that it is supposed to rain everyday.

Actually, both of my Cycle Inhibit Adapter harnesses were broken.  I just plugged in the new ones in and everything worked perfectly.  The only thing I hate about the harness is the small terminal that does not fit the bill acceptor.  The reason they do this is so you will put the harness in wrong and blow the bill acceptor (which I have done).

New $5 bill upgrade

I guess I waited as long as I could to upgrade my MEI bill acceptors.  I got the Mars 115 volt programmer from Randy Nix at Eagle Car Wash and it was easy to do.

The MEI directions were incorrect and I had to flip all the switches to off and turn on 8 (not 6).  The flasher wire harness can only be installed one way correctly (note pins picture 2-3).

When the light turns green the programmer flashed the bill acceptor.

MEI credit card bill system – in use

IRS note:  Now the 10 Pepsi drinks I purchased from this Pepsi machine are all a tax deduction.  At only $3 a piece that is a large deduction.  They were actually a good deal because inside the ICA show they cost $3.25.

This is really an update of the previous post on the MEI credit card bill system.  The second picture shows the antena locating for the vending machine.  I really like this bill acceptor and if you watch the exciting video the first time I swipe my card it was not read (which was the only time that happened with my research) the credit card is in very poor condition.
