Quoted from Grandnational007:

hmmm, I wonder if this is why mine has been acting up recently...
Every so often, from a full plunge, which I rarely even do at this point, the ball will ricochet off something and go right into the pops instead of climbing the spiral.
I suppose I may have to tear mine down this weekend and take a peak. I need to replace a bumper skirt in there as well (similarly to yours). Fun times ahead.

That could be from a worn plunger plastic bushing not hitting the ball dead center. See how much the metal shaft wiggles side to side. That wire should have been a lot beefier if you ask me, it takes a hell of a beating.

Hey Guys, I am thinking about joining the club. There is an Jackbot nearby. But it is running on 95 platform. Anything specific to look for?

Looking for a post 02-4195, for the Pinbot/Jackbot mini-playfield, anyone have one they could spare? Looks like Marco is sold out.

Is there any specific issues to look for when buying a jackbot?

I would look at the standard wpc "stuff" (connectors being crispy, raised inserts, etc.)

Make sure the ramp flap works, that the visor goes up and down smoothly, that the pops aren't hammered...it's a pretty basic playfield, really.

The cabinets are notorious for fade, if that's a big deal to you. Replacement plastics, the mini playfield, and decals are all currently available to freshen everything up. I've been debating with myself to grab spare for a while now while they are around.

Mine has been basically flawless since I've had it, the only issue being a flipper opto-interuptor being "out of sync" with the other (the plastic spring "lost" its memory, and there was an ever so slight delay between releasing a flipper button and the flipper dropping). I'd hardly count that as a game specific flaw, though.

All in all, it's one of my favorite games; a real, perennial, challenge, that never seems to get old.

Also Pinsider beatmaster is making a new ramp for it, it's half transparent blue and red. I'm getting one.

Of course, only one place has it, in Europe. Figured I'd ask around here first.

I see, how much did they want for it.

Make sure you buy LOTS of them, they split just by looking at them.

Before I recreate this mini-playfield plastic, anyone have an extra they'd part with?

Every day.

Yeah make your own it would be a piece of cake. I made a mini pf for my game and that only took about 3 hours.
