    Anyone have thoughts on building a small pinball table, like an expanded version of "Donkey Pinball" in Shrek?

    Seems like it would be more manageable and I really like the little one in Shrek.

    Mechanisms for the smaller ball would probably be limited.

    I've been toying with the idea of a little one to play with the FAST controller.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Search this forum... I believe Ben Heck had a project and some videos associated with this idea.

    Quoted from kermit24:

    OK, let's refer to it as a "miniature simulation"

    As a consumer I'm very interested in mini or "teensy" tables, i really wish someone would bring something to market at 1/20 scale.

    Can anyone with a Shrek (or Family Guy, think they are the same) tell me how thick the wood is that implements the upper playfield?

    Doesn't seem like it has to be very thick.

    Don't know what to search for, URL links?

    Found YouTube stuff, 1st video mostly deals with controllers. All this is very obsolete. If you're interested:

    Episode 2 talks about some important things, like what the small balls won't do (trigger switches, etc) and actual construction
