Quoted from slochar:

Looks like the bottom plate's already drilled although probably not tapped to move the switches to the bottom to save space.

I’m betting those holes on the bottom of the drop are tapped. The ones in my Sterns are tapped.

One of the drops on my Dragonfist has the switches located to the bottom. They have never given me trouble.

When I get Nine Ball back together I am going to locate the switches on the bottom for easier servicing and adjustment.

It is good way to get the switches out of the way, too.

Ready to make my light board and have drafted the panel layout using a photo. I need to snap the bulb locations to a grid to make them more accurate. The display rectangles though would benefit from actual hands on measurements.

If someone could take these measurements and perform a sanity check I’ll complete the drawing and make it available as a template for DIY (just like a Pinsider did with the Quicksilver one).

Probably A is the same as B, as well as C/G, D/J, H/I pairs are the same?

Thank you.

In looking more at the light board picture I'm working from it seems I only need 6 measurements to have the display locations. Since the picture is slightly skewed I can't measure from it for the displays. Light sockets being off a little won't matter. Thank you.

The measurements should be from the edge of the board to the edge of rectangular hole.

I'll try getting some measurements for you this weekend -- every time I try to get my hands on some pinball activity some other project pops up. I'll write myself a note and make it a priority!

Thank you tractordoc. That would be great!

Here’s what I have so far with the game build:

So I took some measurements. Somehow I missed the top to bottom measurement of the middle opening on the left. I can try again I suppose.

Also, I measured my display openings at 6 3/8" wide by 2 7/8" tall. Our widths look similar, but my height differs from yours -- perhaps I miswrote when taking notes (very possible). I will try to double check my work in the next day or so.

Added 48 days ago:

EDIT: The distance from the top of the panel to the top of the middle left display opening is Nine Inches.

Also, I confirmed my display openings are closer to three inches tall.

Appreciate the measurements tractordoc. Those will meanwhile get me started on the template layout.

Hmm, the height of the display rectangles on the Cheetah may be different than approx 3 7/32” of my F2K? There’s a lot of extra space at both top and bottom of the display.

Thanks again!

Hi Guys

Wondering if anyone as a good scan copy of the Chart pictured below to suit Cheetah

This one is from my Seawitch just for reference

Here is the final Cheetah light board template.

Thanks go to Pinsiders out_of_order for pictures and tractordoc for measurements. Also, thanks to thrillhouse who i believe is the Quicksilver light board template creator. I was able to take his template and move the elements around to make the Cheetah version.

Cheetah light board.pdf

It can be printed using Adobe Reader at full scale on multiple pages and pieced together if you don't have access to a poster size printer. Use tile printing with crop marks and 0.25" overlap. There will be a dozen 8x11.5" pages.

I can forward the file to someone to Dropbox it if this version isn't the large template.
