thought the community might enjoy this one.. I should mention that the dual stage flipper works perfectly. Sort of don't want to take it out. Special care notice to the use of a flipper rubber on the upper part of the switch contraption.

I never saw anything like that before........pun intended

I'd pay to travel back in time just to be there when someone decided this was a good idea. I wouldn't argue that they're wrong, either.

#7 5 years ago

Wow hey that's a first I seen that before

#8 5 years ago

Wow.. Even stacked 2 saw blades for that added tension.....

Some people are always thinking.
And some are flat out cheap.

#10 5 years ago

Yea that's really really cheap

#11 5 years ago

Wheres the duct tape?

#12 5 years ago

Too bad you could not put in a window for everyone to see that.

Very nice.

On the one hand, that is an epic hack.

On the other, the normal double leaf switches are terrible and more likely to fail than if you leave it as-is!

#14 5 years ago

I saw it first!

#15 5 years ago

The label below the service outlet describes this perfectly.

#16 5 years ago

whats the rest of the pin like . : P

#17 5 years ago

if it works, i guess it would be better than taking it off route...

#18 5 years ago

That guy would have come in handy on the Apollo 13 mission.

Rube Goldberg would be proud.

If your going to all that trouble of riveting, making brackets, putting in saw blades, why not just mount the micro switches so that the button itself pushes the actuator arms? *boggle*.

hahah that is nice

The doubled-up hacksaw is needed to make the left and right flipper buttons feel and "return" about the same. Everybody knows THAT.

That is how they do it on route in Spokane Washington ... If anyone is from Spokane you may have played it and never noticed.

zip ties come on we are not trash up here!

#25 5 years ago

Best hack ever

#26 5 years ago

I remember a hack on my T2 that added steel to the switch on the ball launch trigger, Clay pointed it out and took a picture, he was impressed with the hack.

#27 5 years ago

Where is Holmes Inspection when you need him...

#28 5 years ago

wait, doesn't TAF use opto switches on the flippers? that just bought a whole new level to crazy to this.

I think optos are just on the TAFG pin . . .

I'd be more impressed if you put on a new hacksaw blade instead.

Rumor has it that this pin was formerly owned by Hacksaw Jim Dugan....

#33 4 years ago

Nah, can't be true. He'd have stuck a 2x4 in there...
