    Hi Nic and all,

    Beyond schematics and the stealth led recommendations (some out of stock at comet) what should I include on my next Marco/PBR order to have on hand for your visit? I've got most of the common pinball tools/rubbers/bulbs/cleaning products, but should I stock up parts like coils, sleeves, stops, springs, flipper parts, pop-bumper parts, or any number of other commonly wearing/breaking EM stuff?

    Working on operational (mostly anyways) mid-60s Ballys Surfers, Bazaar, Magic Circle, and Williams 4 Roses. I'm new to working on them beyond cleaning PF so have no idea what most people keep on hand for their EM machines.

    Also if anyone within a few hours of DC wants to sell me a Sheba, Grand/Happy Tour, Surf Side, Beat the Clock, Wild Wheels, or Reserve please let me know.

    What a tour it's going to be!
    thanks
    George

    thanks for the tool tips! Am I looking for the 8220 Dremel or will the 7300 Dremel be sufficient for the contacts?

    BTW while we're at it, few other cleaning questions:
    for playfield plastic posts and metal screws do you recommend plastic posts in a mesh bag in dishwasher, by hand in bowl, or something else?
    And for metal playfield screws tumbler, ultrasonic, or something else?
    light rust on legs- vinegar or evaporust or something else?
    coindoor polishing?
    Krylock backglass or avoid?
