that one would be A-15368

The only mystery left is this sucker. the manual shows 'not pictured' so not sure where it should go.

this is also the current state of my underbelly. Currently about 6 or so pieces missing for a complete finish..

This coil should be flipped around, then turn 90deg so the lugs are facing up.

Nope. someone was VERY nice to copy an older one. I got VERY lucky.

There *should* be some dimpling as a location guide. But I dunno that precision location is required, there's no moving parts.

Looks like incorrect coil sleeve or installed backwards on the knockoff assembly

See the red arrow. Remove the screw. Stick it there. Put the screw back in.

Had anyone done a cabinet for Addams using RAD CALS

I watched a video on a Taxi install looks very nice but then just saw that post on the BSD color issue on his decals

Anyone use or have feedback for TAF

I was going to purchase an entire new cabinet but then realize it’s for me and my personal use with no plans to sell so fixing what I have and having money for something else seems like better plans

It will never be a fully restored game but shooting for a helluva nice example for my family to enjoy

Already have been acquiring:
CPR Gold Field
CPR mirrored back glass
New Plastic set

I have a set of the TAF rad cals (not applied yet) and I am happy with how they look. This is the 3rd radcal set for me and only one that I was disappointed with was the ones for TOTAN.

If you redo the cabinet would you mind taking a few photos etc pretty please

Picked up an absolutely beautiful Keller restored TAF, I just installed a mirrored back glass.. the game is stunning!

Because he’s down between the flippers

#4721 4 months ago

What is the part number for the small metal post between at the top of the right inlane/outlane?

Plus, according to the movie, it should be Pugsley in it, with Wednesday saying the "It has to warm up..." line. However, the enthusiasm with which Raul Julia says it is absolutely fantastic.

Quick question do the *Thing* lights under the Dmd flash in attract mode?

#4724 3 months ago

Hey people,

Anybody ever come across one of these? Ive googled and havent found a match. It seems to be an Addams Family Slot topper.

No, they are not flashing or blinking.

#4726 3 months ago

Hello all,

I have a couple questions:

1) is anyone having issues with the top right flipper staying put? I am guessing it is getting hit by a ball from the backside which seems to turn it clockwise. One can only tighten is so much, so any suggestions?

2) anyone powder coat their armor? I am thinking purple to match the cabinet text - anyone have pictures?

Thanks

I did black, turned out great.

Either tighten the hell out of it or buy a rebuild kit and rebuild it. Mech might just be played out by now.

Any idea on a value? This belonged to a friend who recently passed and its on the sell list.

#4731 3 months ago
Quoted from glpinball:

The problem is, it is a fairly new rebuild kit on it.

Thinking if I tighten it too much more I will snap the bolt (or strip the nut).

If its new it shouldn't need to be super tight. Maybe something with the shaft then. I'm no expert though. There are se pinball Repair groups and TAF group on Facebook. Could try posting there.

Wanting to replace the speakers in Addams Family... Any suggestions would Greatly help! I was looking at Flipper Fidelity, Pinball Pro, or Pinsound. Before me, someone replaced the speakers but none of them match... Thank You!

I have pinsound but not thrilled. If pinwoofer makes em for TAF I'd look at them.

#4736 3 months ago

glpinball ... What don’t you like about the PinSound? Do you have their board and speakers?

Yep. High end is muffled. And it desynchs the flipper snaps. To be fair the alternate sound files are cool.

I have had flippers where the shaft has come loose from the actual plastic part of the flipper so moves separately, check this out.

Thanks - but I did replace the flippers and still happens (guess I should have mentioned that in the post). Going to try putting some grooves in the shaft to see if that helps.

Do I have a crazy Addams pf? In doing my swap, I find that I have a post by the saucer, which is outlined in the artwork, that does not exist on new pf from either CPR or Mirco. But they make their pf work original silk screens, so I'm confused by not just the lack of post hole, but the difference in paint where the post goes.

Does anyone else have this post on their original Addams pf?

I believe some earlier playfield runs had that but I’m hoping someone will confirm.

Sweet, thanks for the confirmation. I don't really want to drill into the new pf if not necessary.

What's that saucer protector, is it 3d printed?

Quoted from radium:

Coin batteries will leak. I’ve seen it mostly in laptops. With any type of batteries, there are LOTS of counterfeits now, especially on Amazon. These are really risky. I just buy the lithiums from Home Depot and put them in a remote battery holder. Think I learned this from Pin_Guy
NVRAM is great too if you can install it. I’ve never bothered, no particular reason.

As a guy who works on these pins, I intensely dislike remote battery holders. They are a PITA when trying to take out the CPU to work on it. Plus, the memory is lost if the remote holder has to be removed.

Coin batteries rarely leak. I suspect, when they do, they are not lithium. If AA lithium batteries don't leak, then the lithium coin batteries will not either.

Putting AA lithium in the original holder is OK, but only on the following conditions (IMHO):

* The AA battery holders are in good condition. Most are not. They were cheaply made and fail after 30 years. And most have been exposed to leaky batteries at some point.

* Put a note in the AA holder that only lithium AA batteries are to be used, so that some hapless person does not install alkaline and start the problem all over again.

Since every WPC pin I have ever worked on has had some damage to the AA holder, I just find it easier to clip it off and install a watch coin cell. But don't buy a no-name brand off of Amazon. Too many of them are fakes and not lithium.

TECH Question.... My upper right flipper seems way over powered. When shooting the left ramp the ball seems to fly around there hitting the ramp really hard when going around the curve at top of ramp.... maybe this is normal but it just seems too strong to me. Mine does have the correct coil in place ( 11630). Would replacing the coil with a weaker coil work?
