We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Quoted from Lovef2k:

The rest will be digital.

What "rest"? LOL

#1052 1 year ago

I watched a PAPA video of Funhouse and saw how nice their playfield is. Mine is not nice, so the solution is obviously a hardtop.

Well with the preorder page closed, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I don't have an Embryon, but I would buy a hardtop for a restoration project if I could find one.

Has anyone noticed that their hardtop attracts a lot of dust, lint and other small particles? It almost seems as if there’s more static on it than a regular wooden playfield. Any solution for minimizing this?

I've had my Comet done over a year now and don't notice any dust build up. Have you waxed it?
I have only waxed mine twice both times before a 3 day weekend long show.

Yes. I’ve both waxed and used Wizards Mist N Shine which is supposed to prevent static. But, I still get a lot of hairs and lint on the playfield. And that stands in sharp contrast to my other pins with regular playfields.

Get a better home air filter system perhaps?

I've never had issues with my hardtop attracting dirt.

You know the fact is you can see it now....it was always there but the surface had a dull finish and was likely so blown out that you could never see the dust.

A hardtop shines and you can just see it more.

I'd be in on embryon.

Maybe. But I have two NIB modern games with wooden playfields and haven’t noticed this. I’ll try to take a picture next time I have the glass off.

Clean the paper filter in your shopvac (so you get a full power suck), then vac the entire machine, especially the bottom of the cab.

Lint and hair have to come from somewhere to get under the glass.

Dust of course just comes from the coil stops and rotting rubber.....

Maybe that’s it. I’ll give it a try.

Sorcerer one would be nice.

I am putting a hardtop on a Firepower right now. What are people using to cut the holes bigger for the Round Rollover switches?

I used a rotary tool for the star rollover on my Comet.
