Can anyone tell me what post and screw this is? My Pinbot is completely missing this piece.



#3 8 years ago

Sorry I meant this one, with the sleeve on it. Same as the other three with sleeves?

Morning bump

You sure? It looks to me like it has a philips screw through the top.

#7 8 years ago

take the sleeve off of one of them

I do not own my machine any longer but is this it

maybe maybe not one search showed it under pinbot but in details it does not.

I was thinking it was just a straight post with no divot but cannot find your part reference number.

Take a look at pic 52 on this here.

I don't believe that's the original part. Without checking, I'm pretty sure that post originally had a female threaded top.

I know it's a 6/32 base.

Similar to this:

That, however, is not the correct size.

Thanks for the help guys. I may just end up replacing it with the #10 base since this part seems to have issues with getting beat up.

But if anyone has a line on the original I would still like to figure out what it is.

I know sometimes they change things from they print the flyers. but on page 3 of the pinbot flyer you can see they are the mini post.

Interesting. Every one I've seen has a sleeve there. I guess the mini-post was the original design.

^ I also see the mini-posts on each side inside the visor.

#16 8 years ago

Hmm... the plot thickens. Looks like on the flyer only the post between the eyes has a sleeve on it too, the other two are also minipost with white rings. Interesting, as that makes every other picture I've ever seen wrong.

This gets back to my question in a different thread; how do you know what is "right"? And how much does it matter?

Did you ever figure out what piece goes here?

#20 7 years ago

Mine still has the pointy post and rubber grommet...but most of the machines I've seen (and most pics on ipdb) have a sleeve. Perhaps it takes such a beating that operators replaced them with a sleeve so they don't have to replace the rubber every visit.

The pics of jackbot on ipdb show the pointy post and grommet

Haven't yet. Whatever was there before broke off so I need to remove a bunch of stuff from the underside to get the t-nut out. Another entry on my long list of things to do

Putting my Pin*bot back together and forgot where this goes.

I believe that is part of the drop target assembly (Planet Advance).

There is already a plate in the spot. Any other suggestions?

Is the tip made of graphite? It might be for the flux capacitor? Oh wait, wrong game
