    I am trying to use a magnet in a pin. I want it to turn on for only 1-2 seconds when a button is pushed and then turn it off until the button is pressed again.

    How would I go about doing this?

    Good luck to you. It's definitely possible. I'd think something along the lines of once a switch is hit, it triggers a relay that activates the magnet. The idea of a 1-2 second delay programmed into it is beyond my skill level. I'm curious though, what game is this for and what are you thinking about using the magnet to do?

    So I have a Bally Nip-It. Of course it's missing the Gator Grabber. My idea us to put in a magnet under the playfield and a gate on a coil to block the Gator mouth. When you hit the Gator grabber button the gate will go up and the magnet will turn on for 1 second or so. If I adjust the magnet right I should be able to tweak it to be random enough but still possible to get good at it.

    ok magnet would be at 12v and wiring would need to be extended to flipper eos switch just to pulse for about 1 sec. just a quick tap to one eos blade and not holding it while button is pressed. Yes it can be done
