OMG!!!!

That's equal parts sad and hilarious. Salarious.

#5 3 years ago

HUO?

#6 3 years ago

I think it looks worse than what it is. With the old leg off and a new one on it won't be so bad.

#7 3 years ago

Just a brilliantly bad hack!
Thanks for posting!

( Now tell Paul, he needs to fit his light up legs under that! )

The amount of effort needed to drill all those holes in the leg vs going to the hw store and buying two bolts..

I KNOW, RIGHT!?!? WTF!!!

I hope he installed a leg protector

Assuming the threaded plate was inside and not stripped. Too many people don't know where to get parts. Even bolts and washers inside would have been better.

LTG : )

Actually...this mod would look cool on a Centaur.

#13 3 years ago

Duct tape works good too.

#14 3 years ago

HEP could fix that. Doubt he could replicate it.

LTG : )

#15 3 years ago

All that work and they didn't fill those two big holes.

#16 3 years ago

Maybe the threads are messed up and it want take a bolt.

#17 3 years ago

F@ck me backwarts, that is ludicrous

Exactly what I was thinking!

The threads are stripped, however it was still way more work than just replacing the plate or simply adding some nuts to the mix.

Someone will soon be putting leds in those bolt holes. Maybe a light up clear plastic bolt.

#21 3 years ago

Great. Now bolts are ghosting, too.

#22 3 years ago

I guess that I was always taught that if it works, it ain't stupid!

#23 3 years ago

It is still better than a stripped acorn bolt inside the cabinet and a person spinning the leg in circles to get it out and tearing up the cabinet at the same time.

I watched operators do that instead of unscrewing the plate and cutting the bolt with hacksaw while lifted on a dolley.

Someone has already offered that as a mod here on PinSide.
I am completely truthful.
They used light boards behind the holes to "shine through" the bolts and around the legs.

At this point, there is mod for pretty much every part of a pinball machine.

Some nice panhead screws there, I'd have gone with some toggle-bolts and used some nuts as washers because drilling a bunch of holes in the leg seems kinda dumb.

#26 3 years ago

Another custom mod, impressive.

#27 3 years ago

Now I've seen everything.

I thought that was pretty standard, just to make it harder for someone to steal the machine?

I doubt genius drilled any holes--drove the screws home with a hammer...

#30 3 years ago

well thats screwed now

#31 3 years ago

Steve did this for Punk!

Is that cyclone mod using pan Phillips? What no love for rivets?

Look for a jpop patent on that one?

One can always tap the threads too.
