I've been working on my playfield swap the last 3 days and just discovered a mistake. First of all Peter did an excellent job on these. The registry on the dimples is pretty much spot on for the assemblies. The mistake is on the lower left of the playfield above the in and out lanes. There is an adjustable post that mounts there. The right side has the dimples and oval slot for the 3 position adjustable post. The left side just has the dimples and no oval slot. I can use my router and make one pretty easily. Other that that it's perfect. Did the 1st. and 2nd. runs have this problem? Are all the 3rd. run ones missing the slot?

What does it look like from the top? If it looks clean maybe cool to just leave it out bop could use a little added difficulty

You know what I just looked under the playfield as it's bottom up on my bench. The slot is there but the milling machine didn't cut deep enough through the plywood. It's so close that light shines through the remaining wood.

so you fire off a "mistake" thread without even looking at the other side of playfield?

What exactly would you call it??? Maybe close but no cigar. Did you at any time read me bitching about this? It's a mistake and not a big deal that can be routed out

I think what he might be saying is: Maybe they drilled out 3 spots on top for you to use as the adjustment with wood screws, instead of the sliding adjustment.

I checked the 2nd run playfield that I have--it looks like the slot your describing was drilled out on this one, so what you found may be limited to the 3rd run, a small batch of the 3rd run, or just your playfield in particular.

If you haven't done so already, notify Peter of the issue so he can address it.

If you can see thru the wood.. if use a new exacto knife to cut the slot.

I did notify Peter and as I said it's not a problem. There might be 1/16 of wood still left there. I'll use my laminate router with a small edging bit. That will give a nice clean cut edge.

While it might not be a problem for you, it's still an error that I'm sure Peter would like to try to correct if it's showing up on other playfields too. I PMed Peter about it to let him know to watch out for it.

Hello to all.

Yes I have check the remaining boards that I still have here, yes they all have it.
It looks like the mill didnt go right through the board. The top of the board has the slot milled,
from the rear side, there is a paper thick layer of wood left over.
I have taken a sharp cutter knife and could easly remove the remain wood.
Always push cut the blade into the slot from the rear side.
You can also use a Dremel.
Ill get the remaining boards fixed up before I send them out.

Sorry about this.
I wish all a pleasant Sunday.

Regards from Hamburg
Peter
