    I'm getting into working on my Flash Gordon, and I see that Marco has 3 different switch adjusting tools. Why? Does one allow you to do something the others don't? Like different angles of access? Advice?

    Yes you an see from the pics they are bent in slightly diff'rent ways in theory to reach into more types of angles. Of course some people like just needle nose pliers. Of course these tools have a tendency to break off at the end so maybe gett the 3 pack isn't the worst idea if you're gonna order anyway.


    And then there's pinballlifes

    The ones TheLaw links to are what I use. They do tend to break at the ends if you try and bend switch brackets with them instead of the leaves or after a lot of use. So, yeah get a few if you opt for just the Pinball Life one.

    There's 5 different angles of heads that I've seen and they're all useful in certain situations.

    I've been using this for 46 years.

    What ever you use. Turn the game off before you adjust.
