I don’t recall a forum topic dedicated to this, but this issue has been talked to death.

Maybe we can have a central location of effective preventative approaches.

I’m soon to get my first JJP game, NIB Willy Wonka LE in about 10 days.

So, I know people takes about pooling problems.. I went to play TS4 recently and noticed the sling posts have clear washers under the spots. Not sure if that was installed by JJP or the operator. I’ve added an image to show what I’m talking about.

Do I need to add something under my posts to prevent pooling for my new game? Should I put them under all posts or the main big ones?

If so, do I use only Mylar or should I buy the clear washers?

Also, is it too late to buy an additional Willy Wonka Playfield??

I’ll ask my distro I bought my game from tomorrow given it’s 4th of July.

heh you got everyone buying TS4 scared with that forum topic. I have a newer run wonka that is fine so far and it came factory installed with the washers. On TS4 they went a step further and removed art around the posts like Stern did a few years ago. Lets hope they are fine

Was this meant to be in the Operator forum? Seems like a general question, not something related to operating or being on location.

I unboxed a Toy Story 4 for my employer last week. Long story short, everything you see in that photo to include the washers is now factory on JJP.

Crap.. did I not select “All” for general questions? Ugh…. Not sure how to change this now that it’s posted.

You are right it should be in general area.

When did you buy your WW?

Most of those issues have been fixed as the later builds finally had fully cured PF's

Just bought it NIB last week. Freight company has to drag it across the states and won’t be here until next week.

I’m assuming it’s a later build, but I’ll have to wait until I get it to see the build date.

I’m just trying to prepare before it arrives.
