A new thing I made for when you need to clean the f!ck outta your playfield.
Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:
I so badly wanted to say “just shop the pin!”
Totally get that the point is for when you wanna do light cleanings monthly/weekly in-between the shop jobs
Oof! Yeah I can't imagine breaking down some of these machines every time I just wanted to "get the dirt line" and try to minimize wear. I'd be living in a state of shop! And I hate HATED pushing fiber towels up into a lot of those spaces. This ain't as thorough as a shop job, but it's better than anything I've managed to find available for this purpose.
smart idea, I route a few games. I have one game especially that gets stupid dirty within a week or two. Mainly because its nearly impossible to clean under the upper playfield without taking it off. Micros get caught easy for sure.
Great idea! Lousy name.
PinSnake would work. Use material that has a snakeskin design. Done and done.
On the name.... I was originally calling it "The Pathfinder" when I was planning on producing them, but when I dropped that idea I decided it really didn't matter what I called it, so the name is tongue-in-cheek (and I knew people were going to say, "awful name!" Haha.)
Quoted from markp99:
Call it the "Pindoscope".
You're welcome. I'll wait here for my royalty checks.
I sat and figured up the labor involved and by the time I was done answering the question "what's it worth to try to make these things in bulk?" I was over $400 a piece. At that point it was- "o.k. I'll share the process but no way is anyone going to pay that price for a huge pinball dildo." The royalty checks on $0 earned will be small.
Funny...I've been trying to think of how and what could be used for the same idea!
