The cam you have on your site is not only for mousing around, but I'm pretty sure also used in the up post on fire and banzai run.

many of these parts I am relying on what I am told so any info with say an assembly drawing would be much appreciated and then I can let people know and then be easier for people to find

I can get the part number and a picture from the manual tomorrow. I just recognized it from trying to hunt down that type of single coil up post mech which is only used on 2 games.

The pinsider that sent me the parts to replicate from and got the parts today and test fitted confirmed he was very happy with the parts.

So here is the latest reproduction part - 80's Bally Kicker part - C-1062. Hope it helps keep your games running.

Just uploaded a new product to Shapeways - Roll Over Button now EXTENDED 1mm more to accommodate the Outer Edge Hardtop playfield overlays. They still will seat the same into the playfield and connect the same under the playfield but have 1mm extension in the head to accommodate the Hardtop thickness. Available as singles or in sets of 5 in multiple colours.

here is a new pinball tool of sorts - small brackets to slide onto the bottom edge of your pinball playfield glass reducing the risk of smashing your pinball cabinet glass. Either buy them via Shapeways or join Shapeways (no commitments) but allows you to download the file for free to print your own if you have a 3d printer.

Never saw the willams remote mod. Interesting. Where did you mount the controller?

#67 9 months ago
Quoted from MJW:

It has a magnet on the back so can stick somewhere metal.

The aussie guy that designed the electronics designed and released his lcd holomod for CFTBL just before PinballMikeD so cluey guy. I designed the lid and the decal for it and got a remote as payment. I tested in a Bally, worked and operates like the coindoor buttons without opening the door, then took it out as was going to restore the game and then forgot I had it in storage. The beauty of this design is one remote can operate up to 8 boards / games one at a time or all 8 games but the downside is I don't know what happened to Daniel since then so this is just for one game only.

Here is another reproduction part if you are desperate for these.

Sadly being a large part it isn't the cheapest but better than nothing and will keep your machine running.

There are multiple colours to pick from and if you get a number the price does reduce a little when getting more than 1 unit.

This is a simple mod - calling it the - Library Steps Mod that sits on the plastic a little higher than the library on the left side using an available screw.

The ball is known to get a little bit of air and can go up onto this plastic and can occasionally get stuck in a small valley behind the library in which you then have to remove the glass to free up.

The library came stock on the Premium and LE's and those that were lucky to get a library as a part and installed onto their Pro will have it as well.
The Library Steps - v1 is for the Pro where the library is installed a little lower as it is adjustable to a degree and should suit your positioned install
The Library Steps - v2 is for the Permium and LE and possibly the Pro (but depends where you installed the library).

For me I installed the library so the 3 arches are centred over the 3 targets = which is a little lower than the Premium and LE so the Library Steps v1 which is adjustable suits my game and should fit onto to others as well.

Search - swinksgb - on Shapeways for all GB mods and the other Library Step Option.
https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace?q=swinksgb&sort=newest

I have also made this mod design FREE to download and print for yourself if you have a 3d printer - but it strictly not to be on-sold. You need to login into Shapeways to see the download button.

Hope it helps.

non pinball related

I do have to finish this guy for my son, a maxi figure - he loves lego.

The smaller guy is a regular lego mini figure and the large is a 4 to 1 scale maxi figure. Just need to finish off some of the joining of parts so the arms and legs still move and chest plate lifts up to load up a small guy. He measures about 160mm tall / 6.5 inches.

Just putting it out there that quite a few people still wanted the Snackbar Mod and while I am not making them anymore and won't be either. The only way to get one apart from second hand is a make your own in which I have put together a manual. It is known as a Snackbar Mod v6 to separate from the ones made, painted and fitted out Swinks which included the deletion of a hole in the SS plate and one in the snackbar top otherwise just like a v5.

It is the top manual in the Kit Builds Section.

Worked with a local pinballer on the Ball Kicker Guides that don't have a number and only used in a few games apparently (Fathom and a couple others) and will add it to the Shapeways store soon. Unfortunately my rivet tool could not get in close enough to install the test home printed ones - so used bolts - the design works with 3mm bolts or 1/8" rivets.

I have been slack with providing a manual for the Ghostbuster Containment Mod so finally pulled my finger out and completed a Rev1 of the mod, though will need to do a Rev2 as I did upgrade the cabinet in looks.

Manual can be found here under Kit Builds - GB Containment Mod
