Quoted from tem92:

Anyone have a suggestion on fixing the roller switch. It keeps getting stuck on the metal flap of the most secret machine. (See Picture)[quoted image]

Take a peek at the regular Wonka golden ticket club thread. About 2 or 3 weeks back, we talked about this exact problem. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll dig it up.

Had this happen to a friends Wonka. Simply remove the arm off the switch (clipped on by 2 small metal ears) and straighten the arm back out. Yours like theirs is bent back and no longer camming on the machine plate. Fairly simple to fix I believe all I had to remove for access was the plastic covering the machine. Good luck.

Perfect. Thanks for the information.

My Wonka CE was perfect playfield wise and I was one of the first deliveries.

Thanks,

OKAY -- AGAIN,,,, Something that I am trying to work out -- My playfield is VERY tight against the side walls - EVERY TIME I lift the playfield - There is part of the playfieldl that is ripping the sidewall art

I want to get the mirror blades on this game - Has anyone done this for the WWCF CE Model game.

I hate the side art and just have always been a mirror blade person weather it be mirror or some type of mirror color - Matt @ Back Alley suggested that I might have to route the blades into the wood if it is that tight

Not got too much into it as I just got the powder door done and most of the mods on now and just getting ready to see what else is out there on mods

Just thought I see if anyone has done the mirror blades and any suggestions

Thanks

Not exactly what you asked but I got mirrors for my Wonka SE from this place and I love them:

http://www.pinballdecals.com/MirrorBladesPage.html

I went with the standard but I have seen some who prefer the gold version (I didn't think those would complement the SE model). Only real hiccups were that the hinge bolts that hold them in are REALLY tight on the machine and you have to be careful not to damage the machine getting them out. And yes, the clearance is tight, but these blades can be buffed out if you somehow scratch them.
