    Rule #1 of glass blowing. "Don't suck in"

    Would that not make it "glass sucking " ?

    do you do this at home or do you have a shop? what kind of things do you make?

    Put down the soldering iron!

    #18 1 year ago

    Sounds like a great idea! Pro tip: dip your hands in saltwater before touching the pcb each time

    I can competently fix about anything on a game. Drinking last week and game went down. Shattered the glass fucking around trying to fix. Next morning found it just to be a fuse.

    Playing white water with my buddy and drinking.We were fairly pissed when the kickback got suck out.
    Glass off,apron off fixed it.Apron back on ,glass back and started playing again.
    About 5mins later the kickback got stuck again !
    opened the coin door and the cat came out!
    If the kickback hadnt of gotten stuck again she would still be in there.

    I guess that was a real buzz kill.
    Ouch!

    When a game goes down during a party it sucks.
    Trying to fix it when you're trashed is tempting but stupid.
    The voice of experience.

    Know when to turn it off and walk away.

    Except that the right side of the board (in the photo) is still rare. It is not cooked evenly.
