The lower bank of drop targets (G-A-R) on my Gorgar machine have been a constant, recurring problem. The upper bank (G-O-R) work perfectly (or at least close enough). I’m guessing the lower bank have more issues because they’re hit more often and they’re hit straight-on as opposed to at an angle. Essentially, over time, one or more of the targets will either stop dropping smoothly, stop registering when it does drop, or both. A friend and fellow Pinsider who knows way more about the tech end than I do has been helping me work on them, and I’ve personally taken the drop target assembly apart more times than I can count. The problem seems to be with the horseshoe contacts, which is admittedly a bad design. If you bend the contacts too much, the targets have too much resistance to drop, but if you don’t bend them enough, they don’t register. We can take the assembly apart and re-bend the contacts and it will work perfectly for about 2-3 weeks, and then they’ll start acting up again. I know that one Pinsider was working on a new kind of switch mechanism to replace these horseshoe contacts, but the last I heard the project had stalled out. We’ve even tried shaving down the lip on the front of the targets, which did seem to help, but the problem has started up again. Does anyone have any alternate solutions to suggest? I’m willing to try just about anything at this point.
