Have had this High Hand for 3 months or so. On this holiday Monday finally got around to cleaning out the cabinet. There were the usual Gottlieb paper tags, and I was hoping to find the paper tag for the fuses on the front of the motor board. But some off the stuff is just strange. This pin has been in storage for many years with no back panel.

The rusted metal part looks to be from a humidifier drum, old steel wool, drier lint, dried flower bud, out of order sign, dried leaf, tilt bob, piece of the back box corner, cigarette butt, plastic tip for something, and a large bronze washer. There was plenty of dust too.

Having fun with this pin, guess the next thing to do is buying a repo backglass, as the current one is badly faded and flakey.

Great game, I've owned a couple. I put higher power flipper coils in to make it play faster, big difference in hitting the drop targets.

Yeah, I some times find various pieces of random junk in games. Usually small stuff, though--not something as big as that cover/plate.

I usually save the labes and put them back where they are supposed to go.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Pretty much why I posted this. It could of been dropped through the backbox as that opening is big enough. Since the previous owners rarely opened up the game.

Bit by bit I'm working on this pin. The chimes did not work. I blamed the relays, nope not there. Had power at the coil lugs. Opened the chime unit and the plungers were stuck in the goo of what was left of the sound deadener strip. Stuck like your boot in 2 feet of mud. Cleaned it all up, and the sweet sounds of the chimes are now ringing.

The Knocker was also not firing. Took it out, and it is done. Basically it fell apart in my hand as I tried to remove the plunger. The plunger is also slightly bent.
