You need an Allen key/wrench to loosen tighten that

That was definitely a set screw at one time at least. Probably stripped as hell now.

That set screw might have locktite on it, I had a mini butane torch to heat it first, and then used a brand new set screw.

I can't recall if the threaded hole had to be re-threaded or not - good luck.

Quoted from Thegeekyhusband:

Well that explains part of it. There is no set screw, but there is a piece of metal in there that seems to push in if I try to fit a screw in there, but I can't loosen. [quoted image]

Yeah that does looked stripped. I don't know what tools you have, but if you can get "grip" with an allen wrench (3/32"?) you might try getting some impact allen bits and try hammer drilling it out. Otherwise, you might try a mini-stripped screw extraction tool..? If it is stripped, it could be tough to get out. I wish you luck!

I have exactly the same problem; a set screw that can't be removed. I still have the wheel, but I got so frustrated with trying to get it out that I wound up fashioning my own driven wheel out of oak, believe it or not. It's been in my Monopoly for 4 1/2 years now, and it works fine, but ideally I'd still like to get that darned screw out and put the original wheel back in.

If you manage to get yours out, I'd be very grateful to know how you did it.

Last resort would be to drill it out then use a tap to create a new thread the next size or 2 up and use a matching allen key screw of course.

This was my intention, but it's easier said than done, I'm afraid. I believe the set screw is stainless steel. I tried to drill it out myself, to no avail. I also took it to a machine shop where they had a drill press; they couldn't drill it out either.

When I have some time, I'd like to go back to this and try again, but my wooden replacement is still working well, so there's no pressing need, thankfully.

Take it back to the machine shop have them drill you a new hole next to the one that stripped out thread it and put in a new set screw.

Finally after searching for a long time i got me a project monopoly.
But many Plastics are cracked or broken so my question would be if anyone has some spares?
I think some Time in the Future i‘ll replace the PF with an NOS one but for now i’ll live with the damage.

I Need Ramp Protektors if anyone has some but First i’ll Fix them with some Epoxy.

I think despite the damaged inserts and Plastics it will come out pretty nice in the end

Started the teardown already:

I may have a few extra plastics. Can you take a picture of your broken ones that you need to replace?

Thanks for all the help. Haven’t got the set screw out yet but loosened it enough to get the flipper shaft back in
