    I know where the toothpick lineups are. Do you align rubbers on or off? I alligned off but castle shots and the catapult slam are difficult on MMr.

    Off, unless someone has better info.

    Rubbers on and no tooth pick. I eye ball it to line up with the lane guide.

    Yup!

    I used to use the toothpick with the rubber on stuck between the bat and rubber to help hold it in place.

    Now I just eyeball it rubbers on to the lane guide.

    As I said, rubbers on! Although after skimming thru other threads on this topic, almost any answer could be considered correct. I do like the "toothpick between the rubber and bat (and into the locating hole) so nothing moves as you raise the playfield to tighten the bat"--that makes a lot of sense. It also seems to me that my TFTC alignment hole was at the tip of the flipper...

    The hole should be against the back of the flipper bat, disregarding the rubber.
