Count me in for 1 LE too. this looks sweet

#1002 16 days ago

Me too, I’ll take an LE pirate pistol! ‍☠️

#1003 16 days ago

I'll take a CE if you still have one. PM sent.

#1004 16 days ago

Allright then, some LE samples on the deck!

Looking for opinions here , so I can determine what is them is the most popular look , and Carry on from there.

Some I stained ebony once, some twice, and one is all black “ the blackbeard”
One is a lefthander.

Pricewise , 250,- euro’s for the LE kit.

The eagle one is cool, but weight is a problem.. a strong spring is needed to get that 550 grammes of metal moving.
Im undecided if I should make more, or get a 3D handle with metal fittings to bring it down . If anyone wants one, its 300,-. But I dont endorse that heavy a shooter to be honest .

Lmk,Geert

These have to be the coolest shooter rods EVER!

#1007 15 days ago

Just blown away at how cool these are.

Would love to see them in action/used and get feedback from users.

#1008 15 days ago

Those are the most bad ass shooter rods ever, wow I’m digging the two just next to the green CE version, especially the one with the face and the ring on the end. Beautiful

#1009 15 days ago

I placed my name on the list for sure......

#1010 12 days ago

Most likely a redundant question, but were all 200 CE’s actually made?

No one on this forum can answer that question, but I can tell you that when I asked about getting more I was informed there were none available.

#1012 10 days ago

I really like the wood apron on Woz. POTC CE seems like the perfect game and theme for a special wood apron. Is anyone working on a worthy mod/replacement?

What color powder coat are you going with?

Based on the manufactuting dates and serial numbers, I think I could estimate how many of each version were made. At least based on the info available.

JJP POTC CE Topper

I am a huge fan of JJP machines and I cant see that changing because they make the good stuff. The topper noise was a big disappointment for me, and for the last three months I haven't been running it at all, but I have a pinball party at the house soon and I want to show it off. So, I spent some time looking at the issue and I managed a pretty good fix that I thought I would share. Its not perfect, but it worked for me when all the other solutions that I read here had no impact. Just as a side note I did call JJP tech support about this. While they were very polite, they provided no helpful information.

THE PROBLEM:
- It's not contact noise. Lift the back end of the ship off the cam and the noise is reduced. Put your finger on the cam and the noise comes back.
- It's not lubrication, however lubrication could help ever so slightly.
- IT IS the torque placed on the crappy, undersized, incorrectly supplied and incorrectly geared motor. The target torque and RPM were apparently not a part of the motor / gearing selection process. Additionally, the motor is just cheap and noisy. I will eventually will replace it with a good motor but for now the steps below help a lot.

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
- This is all about reducing the torque placed on the motor at the target RPM.
- First, remove the black spring that clamps the ship to the cam. This was the single largest noise reduction step that I took. The spring isn't needed anyway, as gravity keeps the keel in place. I suppose it could become an issue if you run the motor fast.
- Second, loosen the screws on the rear set of waves. You don't need to loosen them much, just enough so that the nylon bearings are not tightly clamped to the wave plastic. This was the second largest impact on noise reduction.
- Third. You can add some lubricant that is nylon / plastic safe if you like. I did, but I'm not 100 percent positive that it helped. It might have been wishful thinking.

I hope this helps someone. There is still noise, but at volume 18 it is masked pretty well.

#1016 8 days ago

When u do replace the motor, please share which one you use

#1017 8 days ago

I can’t believe I missed this shooter! I’d love one for the CE!

I absolutely will. It might be a few weeks before I get too it, or i could get to it tomorrow....

#1019 6 days ago

On a sidenote, if you look at the parts diagram, the topper motor is listed as “WOZ House Motor.”

#1020 5 days ago

Needless to say, JJP POTC-CE is an absolute lifetime keeper for me. So, i got crazy and ordered an extra CE Playfield while they were still available

#1021 5 days ago

Oh man I keep thinking about getting a spare playfield for the same reason...this game is bolted to the floor for me.

#1022 5 days ago

I’m on the fence about doing that too.

Would be fun trying to explain them to customs

#1025 21 hours ago

Mine made it, no problems...now to figure out how to install it!

Out of the 20 shipped, none have been clamped down yet!

But I fill in the contents on my UPS account before shipping. Makes all the difference

I'm interested in one of these, but can you explain how the plunger works afterwards and how easy these are to install?

#1028 18 hours ago

Ofcourse, I wish I could make a small video to upload how it operaties.

Basically, its just a big pistol shsped shooter rod, that you pull back. Nothing more nothing less. But it hugs over the outer spring so it looks more solidly connected to the cab.

Im sure now they are arriving at homes, someone will review it or post a pic/video

Just like changing a shooter rod.
