Quoted from joseph5185:
So...here are my leveling efforts ..
It looks "good" and the ball isn't rolling. I REALLY like this test to determine if the playfield is level...after all it's the ball that's rolling in the first place.
Here's my only...quirks with this. I used this digital level and zero'd it, put in the playfield and it reads 6.5. Perfect! Sorta! When I put the level back down it's always reading 0.2 and I tried this multiple times.
This would suggest 6.7 actually and if you look at the bubble on the machine, it's a touch higher than that second line which if it actually has any accuracy, could mean it is in fact 6.7.
Idk... It's "close" or w/e and the playfield being level just seems more important.
Thoughts/Comments on my first efforts?

Measure in 3 areas, High, middle and low towards the apron.
Take an average of the 3 measurements.
Playfields are bent, wooden sheets of plywood, expect big variations.
All games are slightly different being hand made.
I have my game at an average of 6.3
Now I can lower the flipper power and shooter power to keep the ball on the wireform as well as make the skill shot. And still have fast play.
Wall power is yet another issue.
So dialing it in at your location is more about how it plays than what a factory specification might be.
Bubble levels look way cool but are completely useless for dialing in a game to make it play perfectly.
Again, playing perfectly is whether or not it plays perfectly for you individually.
