This discussion got me thinking; still learning the hobby. Is all pf glass tempered basically or did some titles have plate glass? My HS makes me VERY nervous removing the glass and I'd feel a lot better knowing it's tempered. Seems to have the greenish tint around the glass edges so I believe it is tempered......

Quoted from ChadTower:

Meh. There's a difference between having balls and having someone put their wrist through an oversized piece of plate glass that is supposed to be tempered.

It's a piece of cake, Just take it out very slowly with strong gloves

That won't help when someone trips and slams their hand on the glass to avoid falling down.

From the factory since about the end of EM's all machines have tempered. Now if some OP was trying to save a few bucks/glass then they may have swapped it. Unlike cars, no one puts an etch on pin glass to say what it is.

Assume tempered on solid state pins and always treat it like a baby.

Always hold it with two hands, always put it down on your foot THEN slowly to the ground from there. This makes you decelerate on something soft in case your misjudging the distance to 0.

Remove playfield, hang it up on a sturdy wire and use a compressor & blo-gun set up and blow out all remaining pieces of glass. Use a shop vac first to get any obvious large pieces out. Def wear eye protection and ideally, do this outdoors if possible. It's not that bad at all and very effective.

Thanks! I'm always very careful. Had a glass bezel from a Chase HQ explode on me due to carelessness. No fun.

I never new the BB glass on WPC95s was that sensitive... I also was not aware of temp change sudden explosions.

I'm also wondering if Centerflank is the previous brokedad given all the chick posts?

Yeah, unfortunately it sounds like it happens a lot more than most people would think it does. Needless to say, I'll be extra careful next time.
