Quoted from Beaumistim:

... my machine is the so called "test" machine.

There might be more than one 'test' machine out in the wild.... Glad that more than one LAH owner can help out Mr. Tant. He's doing a great job for the LAH community!

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Since I don't have the machine, I don't know much about it. What is the purpose of that, and why did they not theme it (is it just clear on everyone's machine)?
I could certainly made a decal for it, but have a few concerns/needs:
1) Really odd shape, so I would need an exact trace including screw holes or for someone to actually let me borrow their plastic for decal development.
2) Since it is so close to another plastic, color matching is a concern. Again, I don't own the machine, so it would be best if I actually had one of the plastics with film on it and plenty of blue so I can do my best to match color & style.
3) How many would be interested in actually buying the decal. It takes effort to design and create this stuff, so I don't like doing it if I can't get at least 5-10 people interested.

I would be interested as well

I always see that plastic with a red bulb under it. That should probably be taken into consideration when designing art for it. I assume the red was to tie in with the curtains on the playfield next to it.

Clear on mine too. Maybe the best thing to do is reuse some PF art rather recreating. Or perhaps make a collage from PF art. PM me if you want PF pics to play around with.

First thought was blue background with continuation of film graphic, and maybe an explosion above the light.

Still work in progress....

New to the group, just picked up full working LAH. Great machine. I've had the DE Star Wars and DE Batman and this LAH is pretty fun to play. Already ordered the alt translite (no more big head for me). I'm planning on going thru it this weekend and I'm sure I'll have some questions as I get into it. May have to get the new topper decal from Tantrum.

I just put the new chicken plastic scoop cover in my LAH. It is real nice work from Mr_Tantrum! The plastic is about twice as thick as the original. Anyone needing this plastic should get one from Chris. The colors are real nice and it fits perfectly. Mine was broken in two. Glad to have this fixed. Thanks to Chris for making these parts!

Here are a couple of pictures of the new scoop plastic from Mr_Tantrum. The colors look better than the photos show.

Is there a way to increase the angle of movement of the crane? Right now I have to make the switches protrude a lot to be hit. I want the crane to stop closer to the VUK and closer to the tar pit wall to fix my problem with flying balls. When I adjust the switches shorter, the crane does not reach them. My crane swings perfectly centered between the two switches so I don't think it is a problem with the adjustment under the crane cabin (above the playfield) that every one talks about.

Hi Folks

My LAH crane seems slow

I have 2 motors and gear boxes - same results

Also the pitch of the crane doesn’t let the ball roll up the holding area there an adjustment or just the main holding screw ?

Any ideas ?

Otherwise love this game but the main toy is king

Hi

Can someone please post a picture of the ceramic cap that is on the crane motor ?

Don't forget that you can also adjust the distance of your VUK wireform with the two screws that hold it in place. There is room to play with the VUK positioning. Be careful though cause adjusting the wireform can alter how your ball shoots up and may not make it up to the next level correctly.

If you have tried two different motors and have got the same results then your culprit may be your PSU to the motor. The voltage may be weak. If your ball isn't rolling down to the holding position then you need to adjust the level of your game and you can also adjust the crane screw. Sometimes you can give the crane a little pitch and screw it back down.

That's a good suggestion, but I'm afraid it will not be enough.
