Someone suggested there should be a separate thread for this mod from the animated Palantir thread http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/lotr-animated-palantir-mod
The discussion on the projected eye mod should continue here and the animated version in the other thread.
This mod is a complete replacement for the original Palantir and mount that can be dropped into place after attaching the lamp socket extension. It does not require unscrewing the old Palantir like my initial design. This simplifies installation and prevents modification of the old mount. All components are heavy duty typical playfield grade. Cuts were made on a diamond wheel and all bonding and embedding is with epoxy resins. I'm sure it will show some signs of wear after enough airball hits, but it should hold up as well as anything else on a typical playfield.
The projected eye mod is $100 shipped. If anyone wants one please send me a PM. The next batch of 10 will be provided to those who have PMed me in the order in which I received the request. There are 4 slots left on the list.
