Get a roll of replacement black edging.

Apply with a household iron for permanent installation , $20

Quoted from Damien:

Was hoping there might be a way to reapply that strip?
It looks like some sort of trim, not actual wood?

Not sure if it helps, but it might just be plastic backbox trim, you can buy at Marco's and other places.

You could probably strip the existing facade off there an re-apply new. It is basically melamine cabinet edging (sample below) ... probably need to have the head off the machine in order to do it properly.

Is this the exact size I need?

And wonder if I can apply this without taking the header off? Thoughts?

Quoted from Damien:

It's 2" wide, 25 feet long.

So you will need to cut it.

Score with ruler and razor blade, snap over the edge of the table.

It's easy to remove the head, but if you like adventure & acrobatics, you could probably do it with the head still on.

#3506 7 days ago

Sell it and buy another one. It will never be the same.

#3507 7 days ago

Not starting nothing, just curious, but my friend scored well over a billion (twice) recently. What is the highest score you've ever seen/heard of on a real machine? Personally I think the guy is be going to be tough to beat on Medieval Madness...The Force is strong in this one.

Thoughts?

#3508 7 days ago

repeat information.

Or better yet, start a CGC bashing thread on Pinside talking about how terrible the backbox holds up under normal play compared to the originals. First flipper-gate... now edge-banding-gate. I’ve heard some of the pros are already saying that the remake backbox edges just don’t “feel” the same as the originals. When will the madness stop?!?!

Not near my machine, but pretty sure the width of the edge is less than 2". The other link someone shared for the 3/4" or 7/8" sounds right.

Can anyone confirm.

Also, is it better to lay the new strip over the existing, or remove the and then apply fresh?

#3511 7 days ago

You will need to remove the old.

Use the factory edge on the roll for the face, your cut edge for the bottom

When I fix formica/Mel coverings, I install oversized, then trim it down with a piloted router bit

Old school Pinball repair tool since 1964:

I have a silver all mania that was completely redone with a box of them I think...

The ink in Sharpies is so weak nowadays that they just turn purple in a few months.

Agreed, color has a tint to it and the sheen doesn't match either. Spend the $5 on a paint pen

Any particular pain that you would recommend?

Quoted from Damien:

Molotow high solid paint pens
Signal black.

Or something from Michael's in the black paint pen dept. Take a sample and match it up.

I am not at home this weekend or I'd post a photo for you. I went to hobby lobby and bought 3-4 and tried them all to see which one I liked the best.

I recommend The King of Pain!

Congratulations and welcome to this most prestigious club. Fun Fact: MMr owners have been shown to have 12% less gingivitis compared to just brushing and flossing alone.

Enjoy! Looks like they have made at least 240 games since I got mine in late Oct.

I’d be afraid of doing more damage removing the existing strip. If you have the small piece that broke off, you could try gluing it back (if you could keep it looking clean), but if not, you’re going to have to try to find a source for that strip. Maybe contact CGC?

#3524 16 hours ago

Does anyone want to share what they’ve adjusted their power levels to in the CGC menu? I am still running default for all mine, but was experimenting and wondered what other people had done.
