Quoted from robgo777:
if you are in a country with a machine set for 230/240vac and are interested in beta testing one of our kits with your machine, then we would love to hear from you. Just send us a PM and we can go from there.
Contacted Robert per PM that i was willing to be a Beta-tester for overseas Europe at 240VAC
We spoke about the risks and what the tests would involve.
Robert was very clear in how the proces should go and all the videos on his website were very helpfull.
Since i was the first on 240VAC to test, he provided me with extra pictures how to measure things, so all would go smooth upon arrival of the kit.
We agreed that i would test the shaker in my Creature (WPC-game) and in MM (WPC-95)
My kit came with two tranformer splitters to accomodate the two different transformer styles.
First up was Creature, placed the drill-guide, but on Creature you have a board inside the cabinet and the moving mirror. So placement was a little try-and-error.

Following the instruction videos the rest of the installation is done in minutes, very easy.
Started with Harnas-A Flashers and put on all the dipswitches that were available for Creech, and fired the machine up … and it works!
With all the available triggers it just got out of hands with the shaking action, but the beauty of this kit is you can adjust the triggers by just flipping the dipswitches on or off to your liking, aswell as the shake-intensity which is controlled by a potmeter.
Just play a few games to get a feel when you want it to shake, or not.
Creature is one of the few games that has occupied J128/J129 connectors, My harnas-B did not have an inline connector to split with a Z-connector (that's why there are beta-testers )
But replacing the game-connectors with the Pinshaker harnas-ones got the shaker working when the solenoids are triggered, but the solenoids don't fire hence the game connectors are not attached. (Given this feedback to Robert, so this is adressed for future customers)
Let's try this baby in MM!

Second time installation goes very quick (you have done it before, so you are more confident )
Only took 20 minutes to install, including drilling the holes.
Began with Harnas-A Flashers, and like Creech i first put on all the triggers ….Wow!
Every shot results in a shake, little bit overkill, powered machine down and choose Left-Ramp Right-Ramp and Castle-Flasher and put the potmeter on 50%
The theme lends itself to a perfect match with a shaker, makes a big difference in game-experience.
Harnas-B Solenoids also worked as it should, but since MM is quite flasher-happy, and after some tuning in which ones you like, I feel the harnas A gives you more control to balance the shaker-action. (this maybe different for other machines, so you have the ability to experiment)
A very professional and well toughtout shaker kit
Complete reversable, except the 4 holes you have to drill in the cabinet-floor.
Configurable how you want to trigger the shaker for flashers or solenoids (up to 8 triggers or less)
The power of the shake is controlled with a potmeter which has a nice range.
Robert is a very nice guy who goes out of his way to help you with any questions or problem that may arise.
After installing this kit, you immediatly want them for other titles!
(for me i want one for ST:TNG and BSD, MM keeps the already installed one)
So buyer beware, if you experience this kit, you want to have more
Congrats Robert, on such a nice product!
