The aluminum ring visible under the knob makes me think it's a Turbo Twist 2 from www.GroovyGameGear.com. The other photos of that cabinet show a button in that spot instead of the spinner and I'm fairly sure the only mainstream spinner available that fits a standard button hole is the TT2, so I'm nearly positive that's what it is.

Also the SpinTrak from UltiMarc fits in a standard button hole.

Yeah, I also think that is the one, but what has he done with the button beside paiting it? There is a hole in the middle as well, and they don't sell these buttons.

OOPS, I guess it could be either of those then.

It looks like a flyweight on top with a lick of paint.

Yes, it looks like a fw. But isnt that supposed to go underneath the spinner? And not on top?

Btw: This is Rasmus' Verticade (http://www.koenigs.dk/mame/eng/stepverticade7.htm). I posted a question to him on his Facebook group.

He confirmed. It's a SpinTrak spinner from Ultimarc, and the spinner knob is just the flyweight.
