So I have one and have a problem and was wondering if anyone else has the same issue with their PF.

Near the right upper saucer (Free Throw Saucer) one the original playfield there is what I will call a nail - the CPR playfield has this hole drilled as well - BUT - they drilled the hole TOO FLIPPING BIG and the "nail" will just fall through.

From pictures I have seen from searching, seems they all have a "nail" here vs. some sort of post.

What the hell...

Trying to decide what options I have now - is putting a post here going to be too big - OR - do I fill the hole and insert the nail back? Right now I have most of the playfield assembled and still have some work to do before I can play test - maybe I can leave nothing there?

Note the pictures they posted above clearly shows this hole and it looks smaller.

edit: after thinking about it, I wonder if the nail was put there to provide support for the gate when closed if the ball hits it from the opposite side (so it does not force the gate back towards the saucer)?

Pictures of the OEM playfield with the "nail" still installed and the CPR one (grrr)

Quoted from meSz:

Put some wood glue on a toothpick insert into the hole and cut the toothpick so it’s flush, or little less, to the playfield then tap the nail in. You cold also go to hardware store and buy a bigger nail that will fit in the hole. All it is, is a finishing nail.

Thanks - my problem with filling the hole with wood is now you have this bare wood spot. I know first world problems, but maybe I will try finding a larger nail, I should have something in my bins (hate to have to buy a whole box for just one). lol

Still irks me...
