I am about to do my first playfield swap and I'm looking for tips and suggestions. The machine is an '81 Bally Eight Ball Deluxe. It has the unique lamp sockets that take a 555 bulb so I am going to have to use all the old lamp sockets.
Should I try and remove the hundreds of old staples on the old pf and save the braid, or put down new wire braid and solder in the old sockets? I looks like I may need about a 5/16" stapler, which one do you recommend? The replacement pf has a new overlay on it. Do overlays have dents or dots or holes to indicate where the screws go?
This is going to be a real learning process. Thanks for your help.
