Just purchased some new playfield inserts for my Gottlieb Jacks open. It uses 1" and 1 3/16" inserts.
Problem is my original inserts are 1/16" smaller around then the new inserts.
Maybe this is normal and I should have just pounded the hell out of them to fit, but they just seemed so damn tight.
Using both thumbs and all my body weight would not allow them to go all the way in.
So I had to take an orbital sander to each one and sand around the entire edge until the insert was small enough to go in the hole.
It is still so tight that I really did not even need the glue.
Anyone else ever come across this issue or should I just have bitten the bullet and pounded them in place.
I even placed the new inserts from PBR directly on top of my original insert and it was easy to see the new one is exactly 1" and my originals are 15/16".
