The fonts are different. I would have preferred the original. But I won't notice after it installed and ready to play.

And Joesph Joos signature is a little weak.

The clear is smooth and shiny. I close my eyes and run my hand across the play field. I cannot feel any inserts. I REALLY like the white inserts they are using. They are sort of a milky white, sort of translucent but not really. They have a soft look to them.

Other than the two minor discrepancies I listed, I do not see any other flaws. I see no need to apply additional clear coats.

The clear is cured. The play field is ready for build up. ( that will be a bit in the future).

I'm happy. I would buy it again.

So there are different versions of backglass. Most people have no problem with my dark version. Over the years with this title about 3% are not happy. So 97% are happy & ok with it. So far I have only heard of a small number with white. The art supplied with my Star Gazer was dark also & I changed it to almost all white. This was the reverse only some had the dark version. Go figure with all the suppliers of glass over the years for all manufacturers of pinball games. There are more choices now for glass with the big guys wanting all the market.

Quoted from Quench:

Changed the wire color for the "Drop Target Reset Bank A" coil from "R-B" to "R-BLU". The manual and SDB schematic show it this way. Correct me if it's actually wrong.

Drop Target "A" does have the red/blue wire. Your action is correct.

Quoted from Quench:

BTW, any chance if you can confirm whether the pop bumper switches have capacitors?

My pop bumper switches do NOT have capacitors installed.

Carry on.

John, I just sent you a PM. I need a Catacomb back glass. I'll take one of these you have offered.

Thankyou.
Last mod I hope, I've removed the coil marked "Backbox Playfield" from the playfield schematic - it's actually the bagatelle playfield enable relay which is behind the bagatelle and it's on your bagatelle schematic.

Unfortunately I can no longer change the work in progress playfield schematic in post #1040 so here it is.

Very nice.

I am going to have to go buy a proper sheet of drawing paper and redo my bagatelle drawing. I have figured out how I can do the lettering and numbering without me trying to do that with my clumsy hand.

EDIT: So I do not sound ungrateful, thank you! for all you have done to clean this drawing up.

#1057 14 days ago

responded looks like both are sold. I will let people know if there are anymore. another 2 & 2 seawitch to be printed from the same batch.

Cheers, I'll have to scan and update the lower cabinet schematic with the items that are missing (left flipper bagatelle switch, and speaker/volume control). Maybe next week. Then there's the power/transformer diagram to include the bagatelle power wire, and the backbox wiring diagram.. it doesn't end

Yes, it does not end. The four columns in the backbox need to be addressed. .

While inside the back box rooting around, I see each column has a trip wire that corresponds with each drop target. Bank "C" is triggered by a Y/W wire at the drop target cage and also has a corresponding wire at a Bagatelle column. I have not yet traced the bagatelle wires to their source.

So, when you shoot the bagatelle, one of the three bagatelle switches also resets the drop target.

psyched.

just got my cpr playfield. Ordered a new backglass. In a couple of months, my cat will be heading to the blocks for a full rebuild.

You doing the PCB lighting?

Quoted from TheLaw:

Things to look out for
Dimple position for top rollovers, eXpecially left
Dimple position for right saucer hardware
Dimple position for right saucer plastic switch
Dimple position for right slingshot hardware
Hmm....i think those are the only issues I had
You'll have to drill the lane guide by flippers

Ya, really thinking about it. Also thinking about doing the alltek led board as well.

Ran into the dimpling issue when I swapped out my flight 2000. so well aware of that issue now, unfortunately.

Get the PCBs. you will not be sorry. Well, at least I am not sorry.

Oh, what a thrill. My best Catacomb score ever. It took playing a lot games to get this score on this short ball time pinball. I lit the Bonus section up twice ! It was a gas.

Previous best score was the other day for 1.5 million.

Catacomb is masterpiece of pinball wizardry.

sweet score there cotton, think you beat my top score by a little over 100k.

I agree as well, this pin rocks it. So much so that i invested the money to do a rebuild.

Like you, I bought a new play field. And I just bought a Greenwich back glass ( I imagine you bought the other one ). I am going take it up all the way. My problem is my cabinet, while not perfect, is too nice to restore. Maybe if I can find a beater I can swap cabinets and do the cab, too.

Ya, my cab is pretty decent. But if I'm going the playfield and glass. might as well go the full level on the cab as well. hoping i can find someone local to replate the mechs with nickle, not a huge fan of going all chrome.

Thanks shapeshifter & cottonm4 for the heads up on the CPR Catacomb playfield.
I finally got one... sadly I am a little disappointed on the black line art detail... All the
wisps of smoke lines and dots are missing ; I guess it is better than nothing.
