Quoted from tyking:
Is there a name for this? When the ball has places in the playfield where it can get “stuck”. If I try to get the ball off this spot by nudging the pin, it always ends up in a tilt. Has anyone else experienced this? How to fix? Angle the pin a bit in the lower to left?
Mine did that , my first solution was to run a bead of hotmelt glue across top of each target and worked for a good while. (well over a year & 1,000 plays)
Finally one of them came off and ball got trapped again. The location where I have my F2k had some wide and long wooden tongue depressors that I place below all 3 drops under playfield lifting them up slightly and worked pretty good when I left it anyways.
I don't think I have any pics of either solution (**cough** -hack- **cough**)
Quoted from clodpole:
I fixed that by gluing wedges on the "uphill" narrow edge of each drop target. If you look closely at the first pic, you can see the little wedge on the uphill side of each target. (I did my mod with the targets still in the game. It would've been a bit safer to take them out and do the gluing on a workbench.)
I made 'em out of hobby shop plastic stock, which I only found in square cross-section, so I filed it to wedge shape. Now, when the ball hits there it rolls back out. The wedges don't interfere with drop target function.[quoted image][quoted image]
This seems like a more durable & elegant solution
