Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:
So this thread got me thinking and wondering about the pooling issue. So I took a close look at my last NIB pin which is MET. Sure enough I found pooling, luckily around only one post. Build date is June of 2018. Don't know if I should be happy that it only happened to one post, or afraid that it will happen to others down the road. Lol
Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:
I assemble pinball machines every day and I can tell you without guidance from an experienced person and a lot of documentation almost no one could do an unpopulated playfield swap. Populated is just a few connectors and most of us could handle that.
Truth!! I've done 3 title unpopulated over the years and will not do them unless I have a duplicate machine in the same vicinity.
