Thanks, but he wants the files, to make cut a hard surface like metal or such, so he can reproduce the overspray.

Looking for some information i can't find anymore... There was a website with a plan for the plastics posts telling how much tall and short with a map... anyone have this reference?

Thank's

Hi Fathom friends!

I have a chance to pick this game up in a trade and I am super excited. I don't have pics right now to upload but I was hoping to get an idea of an estimated value and this group is the one I trust for that. I would be trading a very nice home use Simpsons Pinball Party for it.

Cabinet: 7/10
Playfield: 7/10
Backglass: 8/10
Fully working and comes with a new 2016 CPR playfield.

Any thoughts on what I should be accepting as a value in a trade? Pinside is currently showing Fathom's @ $3610-$4190.
Thanks in advance!

Quick question from a new member....How do you light the spinner for 5k a spin? I've tried to pay attention to what I was doing when it lit but seems kind of random.

Really? The target that awards an extra ball? Just hit it once? I didn't make the connection. Thanks!

I'm looking for a working or project Fathom. If anyone has one available, kindly PM me. Thanks. I need to be part of this club.

#458 4 months ago

Still looking to buy a used play field, any condition to be used to lay out wiring harness jigs. Thanks.

Sounds like that target needs a capacitor .Every hit to the target will register after you add one. i had the same Awol capacitor problem.

Was this a factory decision ? Seems like it, going by what i see.

Figure this is a good place to ask. Ideally want a high end restoration, but will entertain all!
My avatar says Hong Kong, but it will be shipped to my home in the USA.

Does Fathom have a bug where, if the top blue target is the last one shot on the left target bank, the bank will not reset immediately?

I have seen this behaviour. And the blue bonus did advance, so apparently the target works (like all others).

#472 75 days ago

I have not investigated much but my left drop bank is not reseting once its knocked down during a ball. On the following ball it resets as it should. any ideas?

Adjust switch associated w that drop target

Make sure to tighten screws first

One or more of your drop targets is likely not registering as being down. It is also probably impacting the spotted drop down on locked balls to the corresponding color. I would take the glass of and knock down each target 1 at a time until you find one that doesn't score. If they all score then the issue is something else.

I pushed on the connectors on the board and fixed it.. hah.

Doing a PF swap and I'm not quite sure I wired this correctly, especially since someone did a couple of hacks. This is a photo of the Green drop targets and this is the 5x. My before shots of this area are not clear enough.
Thx

This looks to be a weird hack. Any reason they would have added extra switches to this drop target bank? And the wiring runs through to kick out hole coil. I don't have a schematic yet.

IMG_4705 (resized).jpg
#479 51 days ago

Photos I've seen of this unit only have one switch per target not like these that have two.

Does anyone know if there was ever a rule sheet created for Fathom? Google searches and Pinside searches have turned up nothing.

I have started a pet project of creating a simple webpage for my personal use that contains all of my games with each machines sub page containing tutorials, pintips, rule sheets, the game title etc. Fathom is the only game in my collection that I do not have a rule sheet for. This really surprises me given the love out there for it.

Just thought I'd ask.

Great question, I’d love to know that too.
