Just joined the cocktail club and was wondering if anyone has ever made a riser for their machine? The wife wants to raise it up to table height. I see back in the day it was an option but those days are long gone.

Depends on which cocktail you have. Most allied leisure cocktail pinballs have legs hidden in the 4 corners. Look to see if there are 2 carriage bolts on the corners sides of the table. If you do then it has legs that can raise the machine 18" or so. Earlier copies of their games did not have them.

I had half a dozen or more of these cocktails before discovering this. You need a cart or sawhorses to put this on as you change them out and it's somewhat of a bear of a job to take out the bolts and replace them with the playfield still hinged and in your way

I have a Take Five and in looking at the flyer shows a separate base to raise it up.

Yes, but they made some of their titles for several years. They made 3000+ roy clarks and I have seen 2 mpu variations and 3 different power supply set ups in that title. The cabinets in all of their cocktails are generic and only the playfields are unique. Same software on every MPU for every title. Earlier games run in 77 and early 78 won't have the hidden legs but later ones will. You can tell your production date based on the serial number. First 2 digits are the month and the 3 digit is the last number in the year.

If you have carriage bolts in the corner (and the corners are metal panels instead of particle board) you have hidden legs, if not then you don't.

No dice on the carriage bolts so I guess now I need to build a base.
