Shopping my Pinball Magic. This is the second one I have done now. I pulled the mylar as it was damaged. There are a dozen inserts that are raised and I cannot get them to budge.
I am using a hair dryer to heat them up. I have tried using the 12 inch c-clamp / block. I have tried using a hammer/socket. The damn things refuse to move. I had the opposite problem on my last PM as they fell out without heat, just slight finger pressure. I have leveled inserst on a half dozen games and have never run into this. The inserts are glued with what appears to be thick silicone. It is slightly stretchy when cold, very pliable when hot. I have tried scraping off all that I can, but no change.
Any ideas? Any chance the wood has swollen locking them in place?
So far 2 inserts will not move. I have others that I can just use finger pressure/no heat and they will slide into place so I can glue them.
