Thank you and please let me know if you find any other places where they are in stock. My husband said he found a place in Germany where they were about $89 but the shipping to the US was astronomical at around $400 because they had a deal with a US company to not compete with them or something like that. He heard that there was a "straw purchase" other company in Europe that you could purchase the parts from the German one and have them sent to the straw purchase place cheaply and then they could ship them out to the US because they had no such agreement. Crazy! I'm just looking for a few little plastic pieces and it gets complicated. lol

I've ordered plastics from pinball center recently. Fairly cheap & easy using this method...

True, but it's still out of stock. Just to make sure they weren't tracking my location (and saying out of stock for USA) I used a web VPN and it still says out of stock

That's crazy that you just traded a NASCAR for it. I was super close to pulling the trigger on a NASCAR, but found an Apollo 13 that I decided to go pick up instead. My Bill Paxton shrine is almost complete...

Does anybody here have an extra magna disc assembly or at least the metal brackets so I can buy the missing pieces from marcos. Just bought me a twister last month and it is missing both magna disc assembly and single drop target assembly any info on how to get these missing pieces would be appreciated. I would also like to join this club.. thank you.

#210 3 months ago

Oh sorry forgot to say I’m willing to pay for any of those parts lol not asking for hand outs just some help. Thanks again.

#211 3 months ago

I know this might be a dumb question but does everyone have a knocker in there twister? Mine has the wires, to the left of the speaker, but no screw holes for bracket and no metal strike plate?

#213 3 months ago

So, no knocker?

#214 3 months ago

thanks

#215 3 months ago

just found a picture of a viper night driving and, it also has the same wires and nothing hooked up. must have just reused cabinet harnessess then eliminated knocker and put sound in the programming.

Just joined the club....

Got this one for just $1400, but has a few issues... biggest being that the DMD isn't working. The guy i bought it from though knew nothing about pinball so it might be as simple as a bad cable or blown fuse... but at $1400, I was expecting to replace the DMD or board. Also need to replace the shooter rod, and a couple plastics, but other than that, everything seems to be working.

Unfortunately I won't be able to set it up for several days due to a very busy work schedule, but looking forward to this one.

#217 3 months ago

nice score , cant go wrong at that price ... good luck finding the plastics

Welcome, great game with lots going on! Someone up above was attempting to recreate some of the harder to find plastics, fyi.

If replacing the DMD, are you going color? That's on my list to upgrade, maybe next xmas.

Luck!

That's definitely the plan....

Is Pin2DMD the only option for color and is there already a colorization out there? I did quick search and nothing came up.

The only plastic broken that I saw at the time was the slingshots, and they seem available on ebay at least.

#220 3 months ago

I just noticed I have a small crack on my slings. I know the slings have clear plastic under them really didn't help if ya ask me. Might have to do the washers anyways. I notice some outgassing on my dmd when I first started the machine up. After that it's fine.

#221 3 months ago

I’m part of the club now. . Looking for 4.05 cpu rom. Any ideas where to get one?? TIA

My bad,
Confused this with my Last Action Hero thread, which recently had a color DMD added and someone making plastics. I'm hopeful for a Twister color DMD in future!!

#223 3 months ago

I'll have some spare plastics once I install my new set.

So it looks like my Twister never had the service Bulletin 91 update done (I don't see the extra Diode, or a resistor off the capacitor).

the fuse did blow on me... I replaced and have played a dozen games since without it blowing again... but still want to do the update.

A couple of questions

1) I don't see the neon bulb that they mention. Where should that be? it says on the connector, but I don't see any bulbs there.
2) Can someone give me a link to the best place to buy the diodes/resister, and also let me know exactly which ones to buy? I'm not an electronics guy, but think my basic soldering skills should be good enough to get the job done.... just want to make sure I get the right ones.
3) How do I check if the existing diode is toast with the DMM? (I know I can google it, but figured I'd just ask).

Thanks.

#226 85 days ago

just looked on Mouser.com and found this for the diode

https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/625-1N6267A-E3-54

and this for the resistor

https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/603-FKN50SJR-52-22R

Let me know if these are the right ones.

I was asked to look into making a repro center ramp for this machine...is there any interest if I am able to do it? This would probably go onto my schedule in early June.

Mine is fine, but are you vacuum forming ramps for various machine now too?

It has to fit into my current heater arrangement... This one is going to be close to the limit if it isn't over.

I see you have switched from the latexs to plastics. I bought one from Germany. That was a hard find. It would be cool if you could do a ramp for others.

When I had my Twister, I had installed a Sigma Sega LCD ColorDMD in it. The game looks fantastic in HiRes mode. Hopefully, color will be coming for it soon.
