Quoted from bigcat68:
Have any of y'all guys upgraded to different, better playfield support brackets? If so type and pics please. I don't care for the factory DE brackets.
I ordered the "upgraded" ones from Marco and they were basically the same with more screw holes. Stainless.. nothing special. So now I have two sets of stupid supports. I almost, almost got up the nerve to try and retrofit the WMS/Bally lift & click supports because these are so crappy. Half the time I wrack the playfield trying to put it up or down. Interested too.
On another note, the ramp arrived from PBL. Exactly as pictured, no ball bracket at the end so that has to be moved over. Flap looks to be stainless steel and everything is riveted on. It's odd the one support is there for the metal ramp but not the end ball protection/mount. It feels as thick as the original (which is pretty thick) and I see no issues with it.
If anyone is interested in a used/repaired ramp I can send pics. 100% functional, comes with everything but the end ball bracket (lol) and a brand new flap on it. Minor repair with lexan and plastic weld, somewhat noticeable but ignorable. I'd let it go fairly cheap compared to the new $200 ramp and I have a box sitting here now to ship it in.
