Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Lol!
No can’t deliver this one in person it is going all the way across the country to CA.
Wish I could hand deliver and set up each and every one.

This is news to me.

HAD I KNOWN....!!!

Are you using an LED OCD to make the insert LEDs attack and decay more naturally? I love that product. Spectacular results.

Pardon my ignorance, What is LED OCD?

BEAUTIFUL, Well done sir, and congrats to the owner.

Wow! I can't get over how clear your playfield window is. It looks like glass. Thanks for the close up shots of those silicon caps! Nice to see them installed in proper sequence too!

Thanks. I polished that. It probably will show a scuff here or there after a few plays but it is nice to at least capture it in the best form possible.

I found a good work around to the white bulb caps .As predicted the few I had were yellowed.It isn’t a common part here always an afterthought .
I capped everything but the white ones and used the frosted LEDs in natural form for those locations.
Maverick settled into a comfortable spot and fell asleep. Definitely a shop dog

Is that Olson's CFTBL high_end_pins ? If so - I assume that's my MRS in the bowl? How'd it work?

It's a board that controls the LED bulb timing when they're put in old B/W machines (and some Stern) not designed for LEDs. Makes the bulbs fade on and off smoothly instead of blinking on and off abruptly. Fixes attract mode light shows that LED bulbs break. You can adjust the timings to your taste. Really a fantastic product. Worth every penny.

Tasty beer thirty. Living high on the hog on this one. On a Belgian kick right now.

That is definitely your MRS.
it fit and stuck to the bowl perfectly.
I would absolutely recommend it.
So much better than the blade switch.
That plus Swinks decal really cleans the bowl up

#8269 63 days ago

I’m happy to see you like Belgian beer , must be hard to order I guess
By the way, gorgeous restoration like always !

#8270 62 days ago

I noticed in your Addams Family Video Updates™️ that you don't recommend using a beefed up speaker in the in cabinet woofer. Curious which speakers you DO use and recommend as the "stock" speakers for WPC games, Pre and Post DCS sound board?

Quoted from radial_head:

I usually use the stock speaker if it is there and in good shape on those games.
If not then the Flipper Fidelity standard speaker upgrade works well and is wired color/style correct.
Just the standard version though not the powered or ones with crossovers.
Those just don’t sound as good or better to my ears than the stock or simple versions.
There are probably lots of speakers out there that would do the job but I try to stay within the pinball community where I can.

#8272 62 days ago

New week.
Hopefully it will be more productive than last week.
CFTBL is ready to pack and ship. image (resized).jpg

I just about have the Cyclopes cabinet built up.

Chris, I can't find any information on Cyclopes. Was this a prototype that never went into production?

I don't like the clear roof on the CFTBL car mod. I plan on making my own version.

#8276 62 days ago

Whoops... my mistake .. it was there all along. I just didn't think that was the backglass.

#8277 62 days ago

I decided to put a little extra touch on the Cyclopes cabinet by painting the older shooter housing snd shooter rod to match the cabinet art. B3F8DF1F-AFEB-43FB-A798-7FA7CC99B79A (resized).jpeg4AF1D6DE-5FE8-4296-B6BB-58B197A9837B (resized).jpeg4623568E-0063-4CB1-BB66-CC161733379F (resized).jpeg

Set up my FH JC project.

I have had the cabinet ready for a while now but the issue and hold up is that the supplied replacement playfield is not drilled nor dimpled. image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
Not a huge deal but without a template I can only proceed by gutting the base and using that old playfield to create one.

Pulled the base game. 43C715DE-FE39-4BB0-BEB5-49ECC45F6231 (resized).jpeg
I already knew or could tell it had a terrible decal job. B5928127-9CC2-44D3-BFDF-9FF31F8C96AB (resized).jpeg
Add moisture issues to that. D66FE4EA-6FFA-4C13-A63C-E5C24A87F977 (resized).jpeg

After setting it up this just might rival the TAF train wreck I am dealing with right now. 5AFE662A-0D95-4A45-8442-9C4A00E71A88 (resized).jpeg
First I see it is missing the game/FH specific apron guard. Hopefully I can come up with that no guarantees.

Thanks.
Cyclopes project is a good one. I don’t dislike it on a personal level it’s nothing I haven’t seen nor dealt with before there.
Tough one to absorb commercially but a necessity if I want to provide the type of service that goes beyond restoring the usual suspects.

#8284 62 days ago

whoaaa that FH is a train wreck!

FH apron too while I am at it.

FH JC lamp panel is a problem. 3BE69068-69C9-4316-9B27-7397490ABCBD (resized).jpeg
It’s waterlogged and bowed. 961EE53D-CCEF-472D-B98F-EDA060D2BDBB (resized).jpegC7A71D9D-30DB-4AE9-97F0-4683FAE119E1 (resized).jpeg

I will need to make a new one.
These plastic sockets will not survive removal they are cooked. 484839A7-9FD9-46AF-849E-2D80D4587840 (resized).jpeg

Further complications are the mod sent for it. 25FA328B-FE03-404A-B5D2-0546B2AAC342 (resized).jpeg

Knowing I need to install this as well as build a new panel it makes the most sense to put provisions in place for the mod.
I map that out on the old one once torn down it becomes a template just like the old playfield .9C4ABFA1-1E44-430E-A86F-1B61EFAB27C6 (resized).jpeg
39D167DE-EB2E-47C9-B979-340544393637 (resized).jpeg

I make two panels. One stock and one modified 32409100-21D7-4DF8-AA7A-6B6C720DDBBB (resized).jpeg

The modified one is for this game so I will concentrate on that here.
I did not drill any lamp holes that would be covered by the mod and I drilled it for 44 style sockets(smaller) because I will not be reusing the plastic ones and can’t get them.
I map out pass through holes for the mods wiring 7D58EF55-37FF-4C07-A78B-BD131519FF12 (resized).jpeg

Those holes are drilled so the connectors can easily pass through and the wiring can be run exclusively in the back of the panel. 24172BE8-F1CB-47E1-979E-4B2A4E7B8D96 (resized).jpeg9FBB077D-1265-4D62-B8F3-0DBB3E437A24 (resized).jpegFD315152-7510-4953-9CFA-97E448482106 (resized).jpeg

Both panels are then primed because mdf is porous and paints best when primed and sanded.

Good idea ..... i notice the wedges have been hit and miss for availability for the past few years and expensive compared to a 44 socket.

I had never seen that mod before. Looks like a must-have if you've got a Funhouse. Even moreso if your Funhouse is a POS in need of something - anything - good.

#8292 60 days ago

Wow! It’s one thing after another with this FH! That pin lived a rough life in a tough neighborhood. It probably has some stories to tell.
I just got one of those animated Marquees for my FH. It’s not installed yet, so I’ll be watching what Chris does.

Looks pretty cool, but seems like it reads TUNHOUSE. Not sure why they didn't add 2 additional LED's in the F. Maybe it's just me.

I'm just here to see how the Christmas village is coming along.

#8298 53 days ago

What color ramps are you putting in SF? I recently did some themed vinyl decals for a guy who was putting clear ramps in his and wanted something to hide the coil under the right ramp at bottom. Would be happy to share files with you or send you a set if you were interested.

I don't have a pic of the decals actually installed, but here they are along with a pic of the test fitting on plain paper.
