1/7/18: All machines very visible when walking around, and yet out of the way enough where you don't have to worry about other people crowding you or you hitting anyone when cranking. However a few of the machines have issues;
Machine #3 (Dinosaur one) Roll very long no matter what speed you go or penny (pre 82 and zinc).
Machine #5 misprints almost all the pennies. The Duck Penny was the worst. Tried 4 times for the duck only one try being mostly successful. The rest either missed the penny completely or only printed half. EMM
