    If anyone is new to the hobby or is looking for some guidance on leveling a pinball machine, I just posted my latest tutorial on YouTube. I understand there are different ways to do this and I figured I would share my method. I hope this helps.

    pretty cool but i stopped using a level years ago. Just eye the head to see if its leaning, play a game, and you can tell if the ball is floating, adjust levelers as needed.
    start with back leg levelers jacked up 3/4 of the way.

    I can’t tell you how many times a level said it was level and the game played like it needed a V8.

    An easier way to do this is to just hold the level on the bottom of the cabinet.
