Hey Markmon,
Tip of the hat for gratitude on the shaker use info you have provided.

Question: Can the STtTNG shaker be used on:

IJ Pinball Adventure, NGG, GHS2, White Water, NBA Fastbreak, Indy 500, TOTAN, RBION, Nascar, Monopoly, or T3 ??

How can you determine where you can use the STtNG shaker motor?

Big Thanks, Mike

I would like to know on Addams Family, T3, Congo, SWT and LW3 if this will work on any of these?

Thanks

You can use these shakers on many stern data east and williams / bally they hook up to the flasher i have one on a sopranos real easy to hook up red wire goes to the postive side on the flasher black wire is ground blue wire is the trigger goes to the neg side of the flasher im 99.99 percent sure they will work on all pins above

I can confirm you use an STTNG motor on Congo. My question is, can you use one of those AFM motors on a POTC?

My other question is, why doesn't Pinbits ever get enough of these things in stock? Seems they'd make a killing on them if they stocked enough.

Seems like they would, especially since Stern and Cointaker shakers have been as low as 99 bucks, these STTNG and AFM are 250. Seems like if someone made a board that would allow this to be done with either of those shakers they would make a ton off that board as well.

Exactly. I put a shaker in metallica for a hundred bucks and as much as I would like a shaker in POTC, I will not be paying 250 for one.

When you state "positive side of flasher" can you clarify w pictures? Same for "neg side of flashers". I am thinking positive side is upstream side and neg side is downstream side. Wondering pictorially where they are and what that looks like.

BTW: I put one in my STtNG last night and it is fabulous!! Easy peasy install with directions to follow for older goobers like me.

Thanks, Mike

Just got done playing a few games on Dale Jr. with the STtNG shaker from pinbits installed. This was a missing piece for Nascar, the shaker!!! It makes a BIG difference. Easy Peasy install looking close at pics by pinsiders. That's one of the reasons to donate!!!

T3 is next, then RBION?

BTW: Pinbits have the IJ shakers on sale today. Happy Memorial Day weekend!!

Finally got around to installing the STTNG shaker kit into my POTC. Thanks to Markmon for the easy to follow directions. Works great, I'm pretty pleased with it. Now just need to tune the pot to adjust the motor to my liking.

Now to get some LEDs installed into the cannons on the ship. I think I will also wire those to the same flasher to complete the effect.

In POTC, when does the shaker motor start up?

Not. As far as I know. I add a shaker but that is a separate system triggered on the flasher of the ship.
