Hi All:

I just purchased a White’s Coinmaster 5000/D w/ GEB that needs some TLC, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of an appropriate waterproof coil that will work with this old unit.  I'm not too concerned about specific capability.  Just something compatible with the electronics and plug configuration.

Thanks!

Since you live in the US, I suggest you go to the local Home Depot and grab a can of rubber tool dip. There are several varieties in tall cans which are used to dip tool handles making them rubber coated. They also come in spray cans for sealing roofs, etc. Clean your existing coil with a bleach and dish soap mixture. Then use the tool dip brushed on or sprayed on. That way you are sure to have a matching coil. Then be sure to seal where the wire enters the coil with RTV or layers of the tool dip. Go up the cord for a few inches, too.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

  The Original Coils were water tight.  Father time and or minor damage could have blown any integrity on that deal.  As GD said, Tool Goop it if damaged. 

Coils in good shape can still be had on E-Bay from time to time.
