    I see Stern makes a glass dust cover. Does anyone else know if other Manufacturers make something like this or in a wide body cover. My wife bought me one for my birthday, I was impressed with it. Didn't think I was going to like it. I would like to find some more with other manufactures branding. Something wrong about putting Stern cover on a Bally Williams or CGC.

    I'd be looking for more of a full cabinet cover to block the sun and reduce fading.

    Anyone had the stern covers and pinshield? Which would you recommend??

    I have both. Pinshield is similar to a yoga mat. Stern’s are thicker and different material. One cost more than the other. Personal preference. Both do the job

    Thought I’d throw this out. I went to thrift store and bought some yoga mats. They are light rubber. Paid $2 each. I cut them to size and they work great for glass dust covers.

    Did you ever find one?

    To make room I’m having to move some games into a room that gets lots of sun and would like to consider getting a few.

    I’ve seen Williams ,Bally at Pinball show a few years back. . Didn’t think I wanted them so didn’t get them.

    A while back there was a European bistro selling stern style with JJP logo on it. Not sure they were licensed though.

    I have windex and a towel, gets that dust right off there for about 3 cents per application. Works with any era game. Fully licensed.

    The towel is multipurpose and can also be used to set tools on while you work on the game next to it, or to soak up a beer that's accidentally spilled.

    Just don’t use windex on invisiglass or similar

    I actually use Zep, both the foaming or liquid squirt style, best stuff I've ever run across. I assume the same rule applies for invisiglass though.

    I think the folks (like me) who would never buy a cover for a pin, also don't splurge on $300 glass, but I could be wrong. lol

    from a personal perspective, we have significant amount of sunlight coming into the room during the winter (southern exposure) even with film on the windows and blinds - and looking to prevent UV damage to the playfield on my Eight Ball Deluxe....so $15 is cheap to pay for that protection in my opinion.

    Again, this is a personal need - due to where our machine is located.

    I had some of those interlocking foam tiles ad used them to cover pf glasses. I cut them so cover just the class, not the side rails or lockdown bar. I like the clean look that gives but am wondering if it makes more sense to cover the rails and bar as well.

    Any opinions?
