Question: Could you get lead exposure through the air by activating the flippers from a lifted playfield.
My thought: Perhaps there is lead in the dust associated with the coils and the flipper action releases it into the air?
Reason for concern: My daughter went to the doctor and had a high level of lead in her blood. One of the ways lead can enter the system is by breathing in dusty that contains led. Just trying to figure out what could be causing this and eliminate any possibilities.
The pin has been in our home (house built in 2005) for about 6 months. It was in our garage about a year and half before that. Over the past 6 months, it has been worked on about 2 nights a month and I have repopulated the entire playfield and the flippers. There has been no soldering inside the house during these 6 months. (There was one time I soldered a few wires on a part in the garage after the kids were in bed for the night). The pin is really close to being completed and I was doing some final tests to see if everything was working properly. I was testing out the flippers (had not tested them since I rebuilt them) and I was doing this while my 4 year old daughter was awake (if I would have waited until she was asleep, she probably would have woke up from the noise). We were both standing next to the game while the playfield was elevated and the flippers we tested for about 30 seconds. This was a single event, but my daughter went to the doctor the next day for her 4-year checkup and we were informed about the results. My other daughter had no levels of lead in her system when he she was checked the previous month during her 1-year checkup. I know to some it might sound like a ridiculous inquiry, but I am simply concerned with the health and safety of my kids. We are being extra observant, and will be having another test again soon to monitor any changes.
