Quoted from iceman44:

Yeah that chipping is terrible
GL putting a Cliffy around that hole. I would use thin self adhesive felt that you can cut to protect. The mylar they put down is doing nothing.

Yeah. Cliffy sells a similar protector for the WOZ wizard kickout, hopefully he comes out with one for the POTC kickout. Still, a metal protector should have been installed from the factory at this point.

I use the same felt to protect on my Woz, easy to put down, easy to pull up.

PF shouldn't be chipping like that with so few plays

#1503 3 days ago
Quoted from Energyspike:

The tortuga VUK is very inconsistent as it sometimes it shoots it the right flipper and next time a strong shot to the left flipper. I cranked up the coil setting to 30 with those results and had it down to 8 which gave a better consistent weak shot to the right flipper. Anyone having the same issue. Also, looks like a protector is needed for the Tortuga hole.....
[quoted image]

If you bend the metal tab down towards the pf the eject will be a lot smoother.
I have my power set at 22.

I would love to see a Cliffy here.

#1504 3 days ago

Thinking about buying the game. Already have a woz and DI. My woz was a mess with little issues out of the box. How is this measuring up . Has JJP Done a good job testing and tweaking before shipped ?

#1505 3 days ago

Mylar will work well also if u cut it to fit closely around the hole edge. I cut my own mylar and put it around any place that cld possibly chip or wear.

#1509 3 days ago

I have the same VUK chipping. Was hoping it would last until Cliffy came through. Not sure how there are games from the 90s with no chipping in similar scoops. Bummer.

Aiming issue: My ball was hitting the wireform on the way out, had to bend the deflector down a bit. It was hard to tell that’s what was happening.

Hobby Lobby or Michaels. $1 per 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. I use it in the shooter lane as well.

I actually bent the metal tab up for more clearance and the ball is consistent to the left flipper at power of 22. The bracket was bent down too much originally but you helped regardless as you got me to mess with it....thanks

Emailed Cliff last night. He is waiting to get his hands on a game or playfield.

That and hes so backed up it cld b a long time before that happens unfortunately

#1517 3 days ago

A collector I know taught me to use clear finger nail polish hardener around those edges to keep from chipping. My games haven't had any issues since, and it's invisible. It will help prevent any further damage until you can get cliffys. I owe my wife a bottle of polish, but haven't told her.

To they guys that own machine think this is a good game for only one machine game room? Played a little at expo sold my games a couple months ago

#1521 2 days ago
Quoted from pickleric:

I have been asking for months about mylar and cliffies. Radio silence.

I too have been in touch twice with Cliff, he is waiting for someone to get one close by but, truth be told he has also been trying to communicate with our Grand Wizard on POTC... Radio silence. No idea why that would be the case but very disappointing to hear.

What is this 'felt' that is being mentioned, do you apply it on the underside of the metal deflector, which is above the hole?

#1522 2 days ago

If that happened after only 438 games played, I would love to see some pics of location machines. They probably get a couple hundred plays a day.

I guess we should assume the VUK on the Black Pearl might be another problem spot.

If I were to get rid of all of my other pins, at this point, this would be the one I kept so far.

Just looked at my machine and my Mylar is right up to the edge of the black border. Not even sure I can cut a piece small enough to fit in that space.

Your Mylar seems to be installed a little further away which is the culprit.

Hopefully we get some real protectors soon!

Machine is fantastic! A year from now there is a good chance there will be something else shiny and new you want. Such is the circle of pinball!

#1526 2 days ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Did you remove everything to get in there?
You Mylar all the way to targets or stop just short of the insert lights?

I had to take the ship off. I mylared right up to the targets.

#1527 2 days ago
Quoted from Gusphan:

Did you take the ship completely off, or tip it on its left side when facing the game?

#1528 2 days ago
Quoted from pickleric:

First of all, I had to call an adult to help me, aka Kevin

He removed the screw that holds the ship in place, but didn't disconnect any wires. We then set the ship on it's side on the playfield (under a microfiber cloth of course for protection).

#1529 2 days ago

Have they changed their process or products ,had a woz with over 1300 games and a Hobbit with a few hundred and no chipping

#1530 2 days ago
Quoted from screaminr:

I doubt anything has changed. My woz had shown slight wear on the wizard kickout and that's when I put the polish hardener on it. No more wear. There is no scenario where a steel ball constantly hitting wood/clear coat that the play field wins that battle. Cliffy it and never worry about it again. Until cliffys are available though, I would put a thin layer of hardener over the edge.

Yup, I'll try one of the suggestions until a protector is made..

Tilt?

#1535 2 days ago

My only complaint on that art blade is that they don’t seem to match the color palette of the table art. Much more muted and brown than the jewel tone reds of the playfield or apron. Would have preferred an ocean wave scene to make the black pearl look like it is on the water at night.

I had that one on my stern POTC and it looked good. Someone needs to make a new one for this machine!

That would be legit.

You are Right . It was screwing too tight.
Thank you
When playing the white thing on the picture was flowing over the playfield. Any idea where it comes to ?
Is it possible to change the brightness of the Monitor i cant find a Setting.
Thanks

Sorry to be so delayed in getting back to you on this... Here are the locations that I could see for the rubber bumper locations

As far as I know you can order a full playfield protector to be installed on the production line. However, I habe not yet seen any comments in this regard. Does anybody order such protectors? And if so what is the experience? Different play feeling? Which quality?

#1540 2 days ago

Does anyone know what the odd shaped mylar in the goodie bag is for? I don't have a pic at the moment.

JJP did not make a protector this time. However, PF Protectors did. Mine has arrived. Extra thin new product. Installing this weekend and will report back!

#1542 2 days ago

Oy...hate to report this one...found it when trouble shooting a chattering sling. Chipping by the slings and slings wearing thin. Thoughts on what to do about this one??? New rubber, fine. But playfield chipping significantly on both sides? I only have 457 games on it. Just lost a ton of value on this one. Guess I will call JJP on Monday.

[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I’d call JJP, that’s absolute horseshit.

Make them fix it, I get the sense that these machines are going to have some serious issues.

Very concerning to say the least.

#1544 2 days ago
Quoted from VillaThrills:

Thanks Mod Couple, just tweaked my weak light. Better. Enough so that I wouldn’t have noticed. A bit of a scary tweak as the hole isn’t straight which is why it was having so many problems out there. You are drilling at an angle to try to hit the light just right. The sculpt doesn’t really help the wiring and bulb placement out any.
Still not sure why that side piece stops so short along the hull.
Added in the gold coin shooter rod that I modified a bit. The coin was just too bright for the game so added in some black too.
[quoted image]

That looks fantastic! I just received the same shooter rod and would like to add some black as well to bring out the details in the coin. What was your technique to paint that and what sort of paint did you use? Also, where did you get the spare Aztec coin for the keychain on the coin door?

Wow never seen that area on a jjp pin chip... wonder if it was overtightened at the factory or not tightened enough and was moving when sling activated ?Hopefully its a one off and not a common issue. Seen this on a few stern pins also over the years

#1546 2 days ago

Agree with darkryder that shooter rod looks a ton better!
Sucks about the chipping on the pf! I will check mine for loose screws or a sign of over tightening. Crazy on the rings too but deff forgivable. Maybe titan rubbers there?

Report back on the odd piece of Mylar, I’m curious.

#1548 2 days ago

225 games played here.
Leaf switches at kickers look good and screws seem tight. No sign of over tightening. No chipping either.
I have not installed any Mylar as of yet.
I deff agree with a cliffy set once it is produced!
And the rail all the way to the shooter was genius. Will save that lane for a lifetime!
A cliffy between the rail and the ball trough vuk would be good imo.
Is it possible that one of the other JJP pins would work for that?

amazon.com link »

Right now $2.28. That is all the shooter rod is as well, you can see the loop on the top of the coin on the rod. Since you are painting the depressed areas, you can actually use just about any paint as long as you seal it. I just used craft paint. Wiped off the top to get the gold to show. Let that dry and then seal it with an acrylic spray with several coats.
