Update 28-2-23

Batch of 30

- we are so close and while my parts / your parts left last Friday it has been a slower trip than normal...
- estimated delivery is for tomorrow so all going well look out for payment options being sent to you tomorrow night
- then will send Thurs / Fri and early next week - but depends on how quick people pay - but will send out in order or payments coming in.

Then for the next batch I will start sending messages over the weekend to finalise what colour lighting you prefer and I will be ordering all the professional printed parts by the end of the week for delivery in about 3 weeks time and so on.

cheers

Added my Swinks open sign today it looks awesome thanks Jady. My game had the wrong centre lane switch on it so the blade was too long. So instead of changing the switch I just foraged through the pin parts stash and used a longer screw and added a spacer to lift the sign up and it does the job perfectly.

Update 7-3-23

- 28 of the 30 have gone out of the first batch of 30 - with one paying soon and 1 person travelling overseas (his was a blue light sign) so have hit the next person on the list of the next batch to take this one.
- temperatures are crazy here so not really spending much time in the shed - with record autumn temps of 42 deg / 107.6 fahr
- everything is ordered for 40 kits (batch of 30 and then a batch of 10 a week later)
- still waiting on confirmation details from 10 of the 40 people so if you want a specific colour other than pink or any additional parts please update me as you might fall into the +10 group

Also I encourage those with the mod to post pictures of installs especially if not pink lit.

cheers

Here is mine. Had to remove the jumper that reverses the polarity.

Thanks for sharing, looks nice

yes it is funny that some games need the polarity wire and others don't - must be variations in the games

I received the CFTBL 'Open' sign mod yesterday and just finished installing it. The installation was straight forward and the documentation was very professional.

The mod looks great in my CFTBL and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Thanks Gord

Looks great and tells the player what to do and colour is a nice match.

Enjoy and thanks for the feedback.

Hi Jady,

Received my mod today - thank you! I ran into a small issue. I have Davey's Move Your Snackbar mod, and I currently have it set up to turn on only when the snackbar is open. See this screen capture from the MYS mod.

cftbl (resized).PNGcftbl (resized).PNG

To add the OPEN Sign I would need to split this connector again. I just happen to have a stock pile of MATRIX adapters that I've built up over time including a Y adapter. Hoarding parts finally pays off.

cftbl2 (resized).jpgcftbl2 (resized).jpg

I'll take the rest to a private message as I don't want to bog up this thread.

#128 1 year ago

I designed this mod to suit the Snackbar Mod or just a standard game and did not factor Stumblor's lighting upgrade - so you may need to just experiment or ask Davey to clarify and update his manual as he did get this OPEN Sign Mod as well. I am not sure if a socket is shared is a issue - shouldn't be as just supplies power.

- in the Swinks - Open Sign Mod - Manual Rev2 on page 9 it explains to connect the supplied socket of the Open Sign Mod to the taller / higher bulb (lhs bulb which is the traditional Red Dome) see screen shot from the manual

Screen Shot 2023-04-04 at 11.18.46 am (resized).pngScreen Shot 2023-04-04 at 11.18.46 am (resized).png

- the right hand socket / bulb is the GI socket so connect the lead from the snackbar to this one, which means the Snackbar Mod neon and signage will always be on. If you want the "SnackBar" sign to come on when the Snackbar is open then remove the splitter wire from underneath the Snackbar and add it to the lhs bulb connector of the playfield.

The image you are referencing is from Stumblor's Manual for the "Move Your Snackbar Mod" lighting upgrade.

Hi Jady, yes I posted the screenshot of Stumblor's manual to show that I had chosen to use the left socket, and not the GI for his MYS mod which is Y I had to use the Y adapter for my setup.

Long story short, I just needed the Y adapter, which I had, and everything is working and running great! Just posting the info here in case anyone else in this thread has a similar install to me with the Move Your Snackbar mode.

This really is a great mod and I can't wait to get a few games in and see it light up during gameplay!

Thank you!!!

Here is a link to the revised manual, clarity of when the mod lights up and some grammar fix ups

no worries, I received a gifted MYS during my selling of the game so never got to install - though still have it stashed incase I get another CFTBL down the track - I do miss the game.

I’m late to install it (other peoples games take priority) but it really finishes the other snack bar mods nicely and helpful for noobs too.
