Hi

I just remove a 2004 cpr playfield from my game to put a 2014 new one. The playfield have been in my game for 4 years. It's not perfect, but real close. I found a topic that explain all the difference between the 2004 and the 2009 playfield

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fathom-playfield-by-cpr-differences

All the blue insert got the pinball pal correction kit

http://www.pinballpal.com/inserts/index.php

And the big advantage is all the mecanism as been installed so, all the hole are there and at the right place, so the swap shoulb be lot esier. The only assembly i had to chim is the drop target (6 bank and 1-2-3 bank).

The playfield got a couple of automotive clearcoat when i got it.

There is one place where the new clear seperated with the old one... See pics

There is a dropbox links for the pics:

If you want specific pics, just ask me and i will take it.

I want 650$ US + shipping (I'm in canada, so expect to pay a little more for the shipping) I will have a CPR box for it.

If you're not in a rush, i will be at allentown all the weekend, can bring it for free, but need to pay in full to close the transaction.

Will be my first playfield swap (someday). Figure the already drilled/used holes will make it a bit easier on me.

Thanks again, Red.

No problem

Should be a lot easier, because with a new playfield, you have to check all the assembly to be sure it's fit and work correctly and pre-drill all the hole.

When i did my second Fathom swap, I change all the insert socket for 44/47. I keep the 555 only for the GI. Can i suggest you to do the same, make a big difference with new socket and ground braid!

Good luck with your swap!

Received it just a little while ago. As described and very, very nice. Also, he packed the thing superbly (box, wood sides, staples, inner cardboard, bubble wrap, etc.) so it was more than safe and sound for the trip south. Awesome! Thanks again, Red.

I also highly recommend replacing the 555 sockets with 44/47. I also upgraded all the lighting braids to 1/8" flat braid..

Yeah that's what I keep hearing. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions once I finally get around to it. Daunting task, or so it seems....

seem worse then it is in reallity... take your time, take a lot of pics, label everything and seperatly and you should be fine!

1/8" GI braid is awesome.

1) looks better
2) turns corners better
3) if you need to pry up a staple with a sharp tool, you won't SEVER the line, since there are more fibers
4) conducts more

I didn't actually buy new sockets. I had a couple old playfields with sockets in pretty good shape. A day or so in the tumbler and they cone out beautiful. I then soldered all the bases. Turned out great. Fathom was a pretty straight forward swap. Far easier than say High Speed!

With Fathom / old Ballys - is there any workaround OTHER than to solder every single lamp to the GI braid?

You're going to have to solder one way or another. Either directly to the lamp base or to a wire terminal to put under the screw.

Hey there! Got a moment?
