It was challenging getting the mostly-populated playfield off the old Pintisserie, and onto the new PinDoc version. I ended up getting the playfield into the sidekick while still in the Pintiesseie, with a support under the 3 pop bumper brackets. I then picked it up and inserted the tube of the sidekick into the PinDoc end frame tube receiver/tightener. Then I lifted the whole setup back up on the table.
I added some felt to the sliders, and attached them to the playfield support hook holes with some washers and wing nuts.
Now this thing was SOLID! The difference between using this and the pintisserie is HUGE. SO much easier to spin the playfield and easily make it stay where you want it. No worries about C-clamps slipping off. One picture shows all the stuff that protrudes through the back panel on Diner. I was able to keep the rotisserie out of the way, so I could easily work back there.
I added a comparison photo at the end. Here is a link to a short video showing it in motion while I was testing the playfield outside of the cabinet [yes, I did catch that bulb out on the clock ]:
My only criticism would be that the sidekick is sort of tricky to get installed on the playfield, and getting it put on the rotisserie. It is heavy, but very sturdy. Other than that minor quip, I would highly recommend this Rotisserie (5/5). The Sliders were great (5/5). The Sidekick is good, but if it were a bit easier to install, that would be nice. Pricy, but glad I got it (4/5).20200807_222656 (resized).jpg20200807_222647 (resized).jpg20200807_222644_HDR (resized).jpg20200807_222630_HDR (resized).jpg20200810_190107_HDR (resized).jpg20200823_173254_HDR (resized).jpg
