I just thought I would post a little mod I did to the fantastic mod that came from the Pinball Refinery.
I didn't like having just one wheel on the left side of the cannon. So I figured I would add my spare wheel to the right side. It took some tricky cutting with my dremel, some hot glue and a little piece of plastic for the axle It came out pretty good. Now when I play the game It looks symmetrical to me. I could have done a little bit better job but it's good enough for me.

Thanks guys. I really love the cannon that Matt at Back Alley Creations created. I'm sure he didn't include the right side because there are just too many things in the way. Plus it has to fit snug right next to the ramp. Or maybe it's just not a big deal for most. For me I just didn't like looking at one wheel.

Where can I get a 2nd wheel? Looks much better with your set-up!

I like this a lot! Maybe you can show Matt what needs to be done to make it fit, and he can stat producing them that way. I would be in for one of those.

Mine came with the kit. It's a spare in case the ball breaks the wheel.

Nice!!!! I would be up for making wheels that can go on the right side. The wheels are a separate mold and the spacers are just that..spacer. So this should be something we can offer to those who would like to add another wheel.

PM sent to Pappy

Great job dude

Thanks Matt. You did a fantastic job creating the cannon. I'm so happy I bought it. It's a huge improvement to the stock cannon plastic. Somebody needs to create graveyard for all the extra cannon plastics that are being chunked into the coin box to die

I wonder if the body could wrap around the top of the assembly just enough to attach the right side wheel? This way the top of the cannon would look like one complete piece. Both wheels could be attached to the body then. Of course this is pretty late in the production and this would mean a new mold. Might not be worth it at this point.

Right now the wheel is wedged onto the coil plastic end that holds the lugs. Then I hot glued it. I don't know how long it will last and I may need to come up with another way to attach the right wheel to the assembly.

Here are a couple of pictures that show how it's attached better. I colored some of the coil plastic and hot glue in the hub black to match with the wheel.
