The Nifty LED guys had their Iron Man VE show up without any legs. I thought it was funny. They didn't laugh as much as I did.

I always wanted to get one of those after seeing it in that Christmas movie. Thing is pretty horrendous looking.

Quoted from CUJO:

A friend of mine had a cat when I was in high school with three legs.
I named her TRIPOD...

OK - I will be shouted down here::::grammar police in full swing.....

Your sentence reads as follows:

-A friend had a cat

- I was in high school

- I had three legs

WHAT!!! maybe you're counting your 'middle leg' here?

Your sentence structure is incorrect. I would suggest you probably meant to write:

"When I was in high school, a friend of mine had a cat with three legs".

There you go, now it makes sense.........flame away people....

As to the missing leg - I would cut them some slack. It's easy to overlook something - happens to us occasionally as well, someone will call and complain that we only put 7 feet instead of 8 for the stools we include with our video tables - no biggie - I apologize and send out the missing bits with a few presents as sweeteners and haven't had too many fully agro people yet.

10 pins in 2 months!!! Just put your wallet under one corner then add or subtract a few hundreds until it's level.

Post of the week. Well done.

Be patient. Jen will hook u up. Mistakes happen.

Quoted from BC_Gambit:

Better lock this thread. It will give stern another cost cutting idea.

it will be available as an option, only $599 for the legs.

#62 2 years ago

That's it, I'm taking a leg off my F'ng washing machine. The damn thing is never stable. I have to run down stairs when I hear WHAAAMP WHAAAP BAAAM BAAAM, repeat. GE should have left the extra leg off.

#63 2 years ago

Thanks for this thread. After today I needed a good laugh!

I think they did their job just forgot to pack a leg, not that big a deal.

Hmmmm. Your description still makes it possible that my friend had the three legs and NOT the cat.
You stated " - I had three legs"..that wasn't in my original statement. You deduced that...
Now my friend, who may have been female (but was a male), could have been the one with three legs...LOL

Good ole' Eileen Tripod... I miss her...

Quoted from Aflacjack:

Got my brand new in box Hobbit LE today. Start to unpack and get it set up, only to find that it was shipped with 3 legs. Not the usual standard 4. But 3. Looks like my setup will have to be a borrowed leg from something else( like a pirate) until I can get a new leg sent. This all is funny, but kinda sad.....that is a critical part I think.....

First off what a bunch of tools who would down vote this post second I am sorry to the OP but with a the bitching that is on Pinside this is one of the funniest thing I have heard in some time

A peg legged pinball? JJP4 POTC Confirmed!

Hope is Harley Davidson doesn't have stern legs, or it will lean?

#71 2 years ago
Quoted from mbaumle:

Mathematically and geometrically, yes. Anything and everything is more more stable on 3 legs, regardless of weight distribution or size.
Think of this: A 3 legged chair is always stable. It'll never rock back and forth, but how many chairs with 4 legs have you sat on where it rocks or leans?

I think none should overlook your avatar.

You sound like someone who reads math books but has never built anything...

#72 2 years ago
Quoted from Aflacjack:

It's ok. Sega Harley Davidson was ever so gracious to donate its front legs in the meantime.

I must say it is nice to see the OP not turn this into a bitch fest

To be fair the "you only had one job" thing only works when there's only one job.

JJ has like 2,000 jobs when it comes to putting out a working pinball machine.

Now...maybe the leg packing guy only had one job...and thanks to this post he probably no longer has that!

The first time I bought a pinball machine, I forgot to pack the legs. Lesson learned...thankfully I had a local friend with an extra set.

Does anyone ever complain when there is 5 legs in the box? LOL

There's one member of our family that would see a three-legged pin as nothing out of the ordinary. She'd share a common bond for sure.

I've been sent a pin without a power cord. Not a big deal as I stole one from my TV lol. Stuff happens and we are all human. First world problems

It will lean but drags on the slightest curves.

Just because I have a bookshelf full of math and science books, doesn't mean I haven't built anything. Or maybe it does. I'm not sure. I'm too busy reading to tell.

It seems like you took something you read the wrong way, or maybe just confusing wobble and stability? I thought someone with some practical experience would realize that.

This isn't the car you drive by any chance, is it?

No. This is, and it's far less prone to flipping on it's side

But actually, I was using the words "wobble" and "stability" interchangeably for the sake of linguistic diversity. My apologies if those colloquial irregularities made for a confusing statement, as I didn't really mean it to be interpreted that way. (More or less, what I was trying to convey is that since a 3 legged chair will never wobble, it could be interpreted as having greater stability--even if the weight distribution tips it). You are indeed correct though and thanks for clarifying it better than I could.

Be prepared for all the "play better" comments comming your way from the purists after you change the "setup" from factory, to add the fourth leg!

#86 2 years ago
Quoted from JerseyJen:

Please email Steve@jerseyjackpinball.com and copy me if you'd like (jen@jerseyjackpinball.com) and we will ship you a leg tomorrow. So sorry!

Throw in an arm for his trouble!

This is a great community here so welcome aflacjack. Truth be told I haven't been getting laid enough for my off the charts sex drive. I understand you were being light-hearted and not a screeching bitch like a lot of ladies on here, but yer thread title screams "click bait" and just rubbed me the wrong way. Anyhow I apologize for being a dick when it wasn't called for.

You're married now aren't you? Well, that would explain it....

Did you pay for a LE/GS

For sure. He might as well just clog a towel down the drain and play with the glass off if he's going to make such a large adjustment to the factory settings.

#92 2 years ago
Quoted from Ballypinball:

Yes it has stern legs that are about 3 inches longer. For right now the playfield sits on about a .5 degree angle. Leg should be here tomorrow and then all will be good.

So my Harley Davidson looks like this for now.

You could take them to court, but you won't have a leg to stand on.
