Rather than using the compressor first, I would start out with a vacuum and crevice tool to remove the bulk of it, otherwise the compressor might blow metal dust INTO critical areas. I usually remove as many of the boards as I can for cleaning, and get behind them - that is where a lot of the dust can settle only to become dislodged later.This stage can add a day to your timeline, but is very important.Dave

Everything will come out of the housing. The hopper over the hole through to the coin box might have a screw into it from the coin vault area.Terry
