Quoted from McCune:

Why, because I am not a rookie making rookie mistakes ! The game was carefully rolled out of the box on PVC pipe rollers and oh so gently set on the carpet mat and the box was preserved for resale and shipment needs.
Why do so many people think they know what is best ?

I am just saying it seems so much simpler to do it Stern's way:

I go one step further and use my lifter which has a tilt to get the game horizontal so I can put the back legs on without much force.

Wax Paper! Did you slide wax paper in between the game and the carpet mat to not cause any friction which often leads to pin combustion???? Thats what I though Rook.

Quoted from 85vett:

Yeah, you're right. The guy should have posted a question about his pinball machine on SVTPerformance.com. Sheesh.... Guy has a ligitamate concern for himself. Maybe a non-issue to you (or actually most of us) but he was still looking for advise about his PINBALL machine. Kind of seems like Pinside is a good choice to post that question.

How about calling Jack and resolving it instead of posting it first? My initial reaction was he probably dropped it himself.. No, well the "damage" is ridiculously minor and is covered permanently by the most reccomended leg protectors....

If you don't want the box

Glad we're not talking about damaged women here. You ever try to send
one of those back?

Quoted from DCFAN:

Why do so many people take the game out of the box with the bottom sitting on the floor? Keep the game vertical and put the front legs on first to reduce the steps and minimize the chance of messing up the bottom edge of the artwork.

Exactly. Do some people not read nor follow the setup instructions?

As for the OP: What you're doing is pretty lame. The tiny chip is hidden. You will never see it while the game is set up. Future buyers will never see it. You admit it's not a real issue because you say you don't want a replacement cabinet. (Which would be an absurd request, btw.) But then you contact JJP and ask for "something" for compensation. Compensation for what? Something that you admit won't be seen and doesn't need to be fixed?

LAME. LAME. LAME.

Clueless #2 steps in .

Jim, did the owner request a replacement backbox? That is what I would want in that case since the damage is not covered up.

#60 5 years ago

I wouldn't say anything. I would be a little bit disappointed but that's it. It's covered by the leg and nobody will ever see it. I don't know how that would get past QC though.

Gee, do people *really* save their pristine shipping boxes? Guess I'm not part of the barbie-doll pinball generation.

No, it is a pinball machine built by humans. This scratch just proves JJP is human and shit happens. No need for busting balls over something so insignificant. If it had a decals we could have fixed it easy, but since it has space age technology clear coat, that has plenty of dust in it , I think he will survive !

You never know if you need the box to ship it back to JJP for quality issues . Lots of reasons ,that a guy like you would never understand !

Not a big deal Troy. You don't play the area under the legs...

Oh and you're right, always play the area above the legs, it drives them crazy.

I am getting a NIB pin in a couple weeks. Do I need to save the box? I was thinking of leaving it upright and cutting the box off then put on legs. There is actual directions on how to open the box and remove the pin?

Pins usually come with instructions. Stern's website has instructions. Every pin has similar basics to set up.

OP: best car analogy I can offer you is a chip on say a 60s/70s Muscle Car where the chrome bumper would go--it's completely out-of-sight/out-of-mind in use.

Just disclose it a future buyer if you ever sell--if that guy squawks, you probably don't want to deal with that guy anyway.

Yes, I know it's staring you in the face out of the box and it seems somewhat noteworthy now--but once the legs are on, you'll forget about it and conclude it's really N/A...just go enjoy that fabulous new game!
