Best club on pinside.

I put some hex posts and plastics in to prevent some stuck balls I've seen. I'll probably cut something to fit near the xeno head a little better, but the fender washer seems like it'll work for now.

Can you put them between the post and the star post like with fender washers?

Mine are all keyed the same. Kids can't get in, and I have a bunch of the same key.

I was thinking I'd run a wire through the tail and into the body when gluing back together... If it happens to mine.

#104 1 year ago

I don't think it has an internal outlet.
Anyone try or think about trying these? diameter is a little bigger than the backbox depth, but seems like it could work well, and you might not need to drill anything with magnet mount..

Thanks Cliff!

That's a standard 1/4" like lots of Williams playfield screws, I have a socket with a magnet in the head to assist insert and extraction. I wouldn't use a flat head screwdriver, you're bound to slip off and put a mark on the playfield.
Something like these: amazon.com link »

Quoted from delt31:

sounds good - seems like everything can be done top side vs needing to unscrew something from underneath the table right? Again thanks for posting

Correct. pretty straightforward, A couple of the posts came out with the plastic and one of the nuts next to the ramp is kinda tight.. not very tricky on the scale of pinball mods going from not very tricky to very tricky.

Probably doesn't matter since it doesn't look like there's a diode on the coils. Maybe we get a heighway guy to chime in on that.

#141 1 year ago

I put my own USB cable to the io board in the cabinet. Whatever they use looks nice, but doesn't plug in very snug or something.

Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Curious what peoples feelings are on finding Jonesy mode. More specifically, do you think the orange light that flashes needs to stay lit indefinitely until it moves? If not, perhaps stay lit for a longer period of time than the half second it does currently? Or is it fine the way it is? I ask, because after watching every video of this game, even when I am not having to manage the Flippers or control the active ball, I still struggle to locate it from time to time.

Forces you to take your eye off the ball and watch for the shot.. i'm cool with it.

Which beacons did you get?

Sweet! where did you get the magnets and what's the specific kind of grease that was mentioned earlier?

Anyone rig up a real knocker? I see there's one in coil test.
Got my beacons on, totally reversible. I'll probably noodle with my magnet mounts more to get them lower. I ran the wires down the back and through a crack behind the mounting plate.
