Covid pinball is hard, lol I rather it be a rare vs. a super rare game, which is why I was pulling for 500. Fair enough. I wouldn't mind playing it one day, more is always better. almost always better I should say.. there are a few games that there are already too many of, like TB. ;)

    Thanks! The scoop uses wood screws, right? I would think, if there was room, just drilling out and bolting it to the playfield would solve it. IIRC the Tortuga screws go into threaded metal sockets (T-Nuts I am guessing.) I think smaller holes on the scoop would allow for less play. However, the chance of aiming it right would decrease...because there's less play. Pinball is hard!

    Is JJP Quality Control Becoming Inconsistent? Post #7 in topic

    Posted 22 months ago by Crile1 – in Jersey Jack Pinball ‐ Last reply 20 months ago

    Look under the hood of a Stern vs JJP. So many more opportunities for issues. Plus Stern rolls out Pro models with the least moving parts first. This is a good way to troubleshoot and get the staff in a groove to be ready for the more complex LE's and Premiums. Plus...making pinball is hard, right?

    Nice. Pinball is hard to beat for day to day play but I always find the EM arcades the most interesting. Hmm, not sure what the best way to repair the players are. I am sure they can be repaired with some success but I know I have seen some replacements for sale on occasion. Just missed these. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960s-Bally-World-Cup-Soccer-Game-Team-Players-Figures/392235971614?hash=item5b5315f41e:g:ydYAAOSwLXBcYQRO

    I thought the same on my first NIB experience - but you know, stuff happens when it’s being shipped around. Frustrating to say the least! My first NIB was also DI, and I had a lot of the same issues. Pinball is hard :) Enjoy the game, it is amazing

    Did someone say Porn Pin? I dust off my modest offering for your viewing pleasure. I redacted it some since the last time it was posted it was shot down by the Pinside Censor Nazis. Hopefully I got all the prurient parts but they'll let us know if I didn't. This actually was the only theme for a pinball machine I'd consider making. But "Pinball is Hard" or in my case TOO HARD.

    Crowdfunding for pin manufacture?! Post #16 in topic

    Posted over 2 years ago by Frippertron – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply over 2 years ago

    Thinking I'll just drain this one. Perhaps I'll revisit it with a different approach after I've looked into it more. Want to save the old-timers the energy of having to type mocking comments. LOL. Don't worry about them. If you are serious about building pinball machines do your due diligence, but you are gonna need to try to build a single game before you get funding(most likely) just remember pinball is hard and expensive. I wish you the best.
