Quoted from marcd:

Does anyone know where I can get the Stern LE Apron with triangle cutouts ?
It's out of stock at pinballlife and marco.

Hopefully you can find one--it is the favorite mod I did on the game myself--100% better than the cheap plastic apron w/ crappy decals. Super cool when the flashers pop on!

#5602 3 years ago

Anyone have some mods they want to sell? PM me

I can make you a hot deal on Tigerlaw. Timebandit and Blondetall will cost you.

I know I'm quite a reasonable guy, but I haven't ventured into volunteering for the hardest job on the internet just yet, lol.

#5605 3 years ago

Hah I thought you were mod. Sorry TKD!

#5606 3 years ago

Apologize....posted this in a TRONVE thread, but Flank said no credits lost.....here's where it belongs...Libations!!!

HO LEE Fuckballs, the clear disc shot a ball out over the left ramp down the left outlane tonight!

What the devil!? I guess I need to get on the clear disc bandwagon... The blue one grips, but not like that.... Unless my wax is just that good (1grand blitz)

It didn't even touch the pf, went airborne straight out the disc area.

I have to laugh as I play as I literally duck once in a while like someone blasted off a gunshot in my basement.

I don't get it... I don't wax the disc area of course... Maybe the blue just isn't the same

You know what they say about going blue, right?

How long does it take to do the disc swap? No need to remove ramps?

#5614 3 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

You remove the motor from under the pf, and disassemble the disc from the motor out of the machine...
I personally will buy another clear plastic disc from pinball-life and place the new clear rubber disc on it, takes about 30 minutes in all

Yeah, it's quick but I'd recommend letting whatever spray adhesive set up for a bit, leave the motor upside down on something flat.

#5616 3 years ago

I have a heat press, maybe that would help adhesion

Edit: nm I see the center has screws under it. Was thinking it was held on by a set screw

Joined the club again. Had a LE when they came out. Missed it and get a modded out pro. I ordered 3D back glass, flipper fidelity back box led kit, color DMD,I bought a LE apron (thinking orange). Topper is coming. Ordered 4 clear disk last week from Germany. Couple of pics of Tron and my other sterns.

Very, very, very nice setup.....glad you have TRON back in there!!!

Hey guys. Trying to help a buddy clean up his TRON and I noticed that when his disc is spinning, it's very loud and vibrates the game a lot. Does anyone know the cause and fix for this?

I'd try changing the plastic disc and the rubber....Spins pretty fast ( as you know) and if that assembly is not balanced ( cracked, disc partially coming off, etc.) it can really make the thing noisy.Happened to me once when I got a little " glue crazy" w a new disc....was very noisy...took the disc back off, cleaned, light coat of spray adhesive, clamped overnight, all good...

I've never oiled the motor ( couldn't find a location), and they do get worn out too.....not crazy expensive, but only 2 things I can think of.

#5622 3 years ago

This was sent to me when I asked about preventative maintenance. Same as POTC.

Chuck. Thought you knew how to work on your games and pins in general. Saw that thumbs up from ya in another post. What a hypocrite.

Oh. Ok. I figured that since you got your hands dirty and all you'd be able to troubleshoot that issue yourself. Guess not.

Man, WTF is the stick up your arse?

Nothing buddy. Chuck thumbing up all posts in another thread saying owners should know how to work on games but then he comes on here and asks for help. Seems hypocritical to me is all.

Thanks dude! I had hoped to have GoT and Spidey vault for the get together but they weren't ready yet, April is super busy for people so I didn't want to reschedule. It was fun, we did a quick last man standing tourney, my wife won it.

Unlike some other threads, this has always been the one place where it is always cool to be. Perhaps we can keep it that way.

#5641 3 years ago

Best Club thread on Pinside , period.....suspect it will stay that way.....TRON just rules, is what it is.....

But on a serious note.....

I've been debating on buying one of the -3 degree Jager shot dispensers ( has cool LED lighting ). Are they messy?

Have a great place for it down in the cave, and it gets to be a pita to keep going upstairs to the freezer to get the bottle ( especially the more I consume)..what say ye Flank and Club?

Not in a big hurry, as next week is Scotch....

Anywhere from $75 on up for single bottle models....I don't know the differences, but seems like a no brainier for me....I keep going back to the stuff....
