After an odd 3 months my Class of 1812 FINALLY made it home! She needs some small tweaking, but she’ll be ready for route when the route is ready for her!

Hello, I’m looking for a Class of 1812 in the 2K range somewhere within 150 miles of Los Angeles. Thanks for looking.

Greetings Everyone,

This is Rob from Pinshakers and I have some good news for you. We are getting ready to release the next version of our shaker kits and they will be compatible with Class of 1812! Beta testing was completed on a Stargate and the results are amazing.

An official announcement will go out as soon as the kits are released. In the meantime we need your help. Since the manuals for Gottlieb are unavailable for download, we have no idea what the trigger names are. If you happen to have a manual could you please PM or email us the solenoid list. It should be located on the page for "Vll Parts Information" in a small section called "Solenoid, Driver Functions/Locations". That lists all of the solenoids/flashlamps and their names. Our email address is [email protected] in case you are unable to PM images on pinside.

Please do not post any images of the manual here in the forum. They are copyrighted material and we want to respect that. We will not post or distribute the images you send us and they will be deleted once we get the information we need in order to complete the user manuals for the shaker kits.

Thank you so much for your assistance, we can't wait to get these kits out to you guys!

Best Regards,

Robert Goebel

Wow. After reading your reply I took a look at Amazon and there are a ton of different hands....When I first bought the game around 8-10 years ago, I looked for this hand than reacted to sound. The fingers would move and created an impressive effect. I did buy one but it did not work for some reason.....

Perhaps other owners with the moving hand will chime in....

Cheers,

#210 2 years ago

Picked these up also from Amazon. I think it looks great.

BR Jan

There is no replacement heart that is OEM style..... There have been several replacement hearts used though, that will fit in that space with a few modifications to mount them. It has been several years, but I know there was an online halloween shop that seemed to be a very popular site for replacement hearts that were similar size.

#213 2 years ago

Thanks for the quick answer! Did anybody have a link to this shop?

Isn’t there a mystery award in this game to catch a players score up to the leader? Any way to disable that?

Hey all have a issue with the divertor, it doesn’t work however when testing the power to the coil and fuses everything seems fine except the divertor doesn’t work during the game or in test mode but has power going to it.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this could be?

You have power going to it but it's the transistor that provides ground to operate.
With it not working in game or test I would look at the transistor.

Hi All;

I could not find a commercially available whole playfield protector for my Class of 1812, so: I made my own.
(I have a prototype that fits and I'll make the final design tweaks today.)

I'm not going to sell them, but I will share my design so others can make them.

Mine is made of 0.02" PTEG, and cut using a drag knife on a 2' X 2' CNC router.
(Because my CNC machine is so small, I had to cut the bottom half, reposition the material, then cut the top half.)
(Your local Sign Shop *might* be able to make one for you.)

My Design is Guaranteed!!!

Guarantee: If you cut the design on my CNC machine, using my drag knife, with my settings and calibrations: It will fit my Class of 1812. :-p

In other words: It may take some tweaking to fit your Class of 1812. I recommend first making a paper template to test fit.

I'll post my design (Adobe Illustrator CS5 ".ai" format) in a few days.

An image from an earlier prototype is attached.

Why?

#227 1 year ago

To prevent wear to my playfield from having a steel ball rolling around it at high speed...

#228 1 year ago
Quoted from Shaker:

Not a thing. PF of a well maintained game in a home environment will not wear. Would you want a PF protector to come on all new games or every single pinball game that is at a show or on location for people to play? I for one certainly would not. You have crossed over to the dark side. I swear it's not worth it, please come back! Pretty soon you will be convincing yourself that a hardtop conversion is just as good as playing on a wooden playfield.

#229 1 year ago

Your car tires properly inflated in a non commercial environment will not wear out.
You needed the cargument and it was free.

I'm concerned that you drive your vehicle around using metal balls on wooden roads. How do you get air to hold in the metal ball wheels? I'm assuming you're joking and do not actually have PF protectors on all your games...

Besides, anyone putting a PF protector on a game plays their games like once a month, tops! Chance of any actual wear NOT using a PF condom after 10 years... near 0%

I will give you this though, you should actually probably use them if you play with rusty balls or, re-use the ones that Stern puts in their new games. If THAT was the reason for using it, very good then.

#231 1 year ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

Sure it will. The more friends you have, the faster it will wear.

Also, what makes you think my games are well maintained??? I replace bulbs as needed, every few years I'll replace the balls, and give them a half-assed waxing (without depopulating the playfield).

My Winter 2022 Project is to shop all my games. This was inspired by my PCB repair guy walking past my Monster Bash and saying: That thing is filthy!

Quoted from snyper2099:

Would you want a PF protector to come on all new games or every single pinball game that is at a show or on location for people to play?

Hell Yes! No one would every have to wax a playfield again. Just spritz a little windex on a rag, and give the protector a wipe.

I had a friend over playing one of my games (a much better player than I), and he started talking whole playfield protectors. He said he was thinking about getting a couple, but did not want to until he played a game with one installed, so he could see if it played differently. I pointed out that the game he was playing had one, and he hadn't noticed. He ordered a couple for his older games...

BTW:

As part shopping my games this winter, not only am I installing a whole playfield protector on each and every game, but I'm also installing silicone rings and replacing every f'in bulb in the playfield with an LED.

My Winter 2020 Project was to build a Virtual Pinball Cabinet, so I can play pretend pinball. Is is as good as the real thing? No! However, it let's be get a flavor for games I would otherwise never get to experience.

#232 1 year ago
Quoted from Shaker:

Hell Yes! No one would every have to wax a playfield again. Just spritz a little windex on a rag, and give the protector a wipe.

That settles it then folks. Everyone else is doing it wrong. PF protector condoms on everything, then all you need to keep games playing well is windex on a rag! If you and your friends think it does not change the way a game plays, you are wrong. Your money and time is better spent on balls, rubbers, and regular cleaning of your machines over a PF protector. When I mentioned well maintained, I meant new balls and cleaning every 500-1000 plays. (I play my games a lot.)

I don’t blame you for wanting to protect games or make them play better with rubbers and bulbs. It’s commendable. A PF protector does absolutely nothing positive unless you are a company making and selling them. Then, they are an absolute must. Are you also frightened by playfield dimples? Don’t fret, they are natural… let the metal balls touch the playfields man, it’s the natural way!

Yup, I can't tell the difference. And, if I could, I would not care.

Pinball machines are are like golf courses: Every one is different. Even 2 of the same model play different. The playfields are at different angles. The flippers are at different angles. Every mech on the playfield has slight variations in placement. Linkages and coil sleeves have different amounts of wear. The playfield itself is not perfectly straight. Power supplies (and capacitors) performance change as they age. Even the local humidity affects game performance.

Perfection is not required to have fun.

Quoted from Shaker:

Well then, I'm glad we both agree that "protecting a pinball game" has nothing to do with actually having fun when playing it.

#235 1 year ago

All;

I've completed my Class of 1812 Whole Playfield Protector. I've attached a picture before I peeled off its protective film, so you can checkout the fit. The edges are clean, any wrinkles is just the protective film coming off of the plastic.

It's made of 0.02" PTEG. I cut it out using a drag knife on my CNC machine. My CNC is only 2' x 2', so I had to use tiling. Tiling allows me to cut projects of any length, 2 feet at a time.

If you would like a copy of the design or close-up pictures of the fit: Please send me a Pinside Message.

I’ve never seen a Class of 1812 with a nice playfield so it’s this is a nice one. Probably best to throw a protector on it.

It took me over 2 years to find a Class of 1812 with a good playfield. At the time I was looking, every playfield seemed to be worn down to the bare wood. (Although others have since posted some great looking playfield pics on this thread.)

It looks like I have a chance to get a Class of 1812 machine... looking for a little advice.

1. Are there any particular mechs or wear areas I should check out when inspecting it? Anything that is known to break often?
2. How hard it is to get parts for this machine? I had a Tee'd Off and was surprised how hard finding some stuff for it was and I can't imagine this would be any easier.
3. Can anyone comment on the size of the machine and backbox? I can fit a modern Stern into my vehicle but I had to remove the backbox to get the Tee'd Off to fit and had to drill new holes on the legs to lower the height so it fit into my basement. Looking at the pic posted above it looks like it's quite tall compared to a normal machine. Does anyone know if it's taller than Tee'd Off?
