A decrease in new arcade games being rigged?

I found this: http://coin-op.org/fair-play-pledge/ Companies part of the American Amusement Machine Association can no longer sell arcade games with an "auto-lose" feature (I think this includes Sega, so KeyMaster will likely no longer be sold unless a more skill based version is made).

Since Hurricane Sandy, how many of these old machines ...

I found a Holly Crane schematic for sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1949-HOLLY-CRAN ... 3ab0a9c548

I think it might be for the same type of machine as the machines you have.

Rigged crane machines

Can some crane machines only be rigged, and not able to be set to fixed strength? And if so, are all rigged crane machines like this? (I don't think so).
