Back working on the new Playfield. Installed the pop bumper nails for lack of a better word.

I try to to countersink the heads of the nails with a drill bit just enough so they sit flush forgot to take a picture of that but here's what it looks like.

I have looked but have not found anything. But last time I was out here I did find a Bally Star Trek sitting in a old building but can't find the owner (yet)

I'm back from my trip to the Big Island Hawaii. Had a great time. If you've never been there I would highly recommend going.

Back working on the Playfield have the lower half completed. Anywhere you see blue painter's tape so has to be done.

My ankle surgery was postponed till the 20th so as long as I'm still walking I figured I'd get as much done as I can

Thanks for the vote of confidence I appreciate it. I was able to get the bottom of the place field completed today.

I know a lot of people are going to cringe when they see this, but I think it's worth it to have.

Unfortunately because it was an NOS Playfield there was a lot of cupping on the inserts for whatever reason and I didn't want to go through all the effort the clear it to fix all that, so this seemed like the easiest fix.

I have a play field protector on my Bally Star Trek and I like it I can always take it off.

Looks like it's going to fit just fine.

I was thinking about one of these for my lost world. How does it play on your star trek? Any issues?

I really like it. Plays fast. Nice and flat. No real issues with it. Some say it changes the feel of the game, I don't really notice any difference.

Dont blame ya,should only help gameplay if you setup nice and steep

#275 1 year ago

When you were completing the lower playfield, were you just attaching the harness or were you rebuilding the mechs & installing new parts as you went? Just curious.

#276 1 year ago
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

All the mechanics were rebuild if needed. I don't replace all the lights sockets and that kind of thing. That just adds to the cost of the rebuild so something's in good working order I just reuse it to keep the cost down.

#277 1 year ago

Well the Lost World game for all intensive purposes is completed.

Real happy with the way it turned out, plays nice.

Couple of small issues... one out lane switches not working, and there's something wrong with the sound, and the apron looks terrible it needs to be redone but other than that she's done.

What does intensive purposes mean? Did you mean all intents and purposes?

#281 1 year ago

Tim, looks great, you should be a proud papa!
One suggestion, while they are not stock to that era, you might consider using these HD leg brackets in the future.

That machine in the distance sure looks familiar!

Take a bow, Lost World has been found!!!

What is next?

#297 1 year ago
Quoted from Daditude:

What is next?

Probably going to be my Fireball 2.

Just an update on the lost world I was able to get the out lane switch working. It was shorting out on itself.

Also fix the noise issue one of the potentiometers on the soundboard was cranked all the way up causing a loud squeal.

And then I ordered new apron decals so when I redo the apron I'll post those pictures

#298 1 year ago

Where did you get your apron decals from? The ones I've been looking at aren't a perfect reproduction

Classic Arcade. Will see how it looks when it gets here.
