    Zombie Yeti trans lights. Only 2 left for pickup at the show for $100. You will be able to buy one at the show and in the pintastic store. We will ship it to you but those will be $110. Only 40 total will be made. So message me if you want one of the last 2 for pickup.

    Well, I just had the small misfortune of a part blowing apart on my Rescue 911. It's the 30558 neoprene sleeve that joins two couplers for the shaft that drives the helicopter.

    PBR is out for vacation the whole week, and I don't have a good way to fix this without the actual part. I can't glue the original part back together since I'm can't seem to find all the pieces and epoxy won't hold on this type of slick/waxy plastic.

    Does anyone happen to have this in their parts stash by any chance? I've got just about every other small helicopter assembly part *except* this one

    Well, I ended up pulling my other R911 out of my storage area, and pulled the part off of that one. The two game serial numbers are somewhat far apart, and I noticed several differences between the two games. Namely, one that caused some difficulties: the later R911 that I stole the part from used loctite on two machine screws used to screw the helicopter motor to the playfield (plus two plain wood screws). The earlier R911 just uses four wood screws.

    If there's one thing I dislike about System 3 games, it's the loctite that got used on these games. Arg!

    Probably too late to mention I have had success using a soldering gun on loctited unions on System 3 games. Just heat it up and they come right apart without snapping the machine screw.

    Yeah, I've had success with heating up loctited screws as well. I wasn't in a very good position to set up a soldering iron, and brute force seemed to work on these particular screws, luckily.

    Now I'm just wondering if I should reinforce this part somehow to help prevent it from breaking.

    Might not be a bad idea to find a person with a 3D printer and get it printed quickly.

    #857 2 years ago
    Quoted from hool10:

    I don't think I know anyone locally with a 3D printer.

    Besides, this part gets put under a lot of stress. I'm not sure that a consumer grade 3D print would hold up.

    In any case, for a long-term solution, I would go with what PBResource has available. It's just that since they aren't open this week, I didn't have that option before this week's show happens.

    #858 2 years ago

    Happy Pintastic Week everyone!

    Nothing like a 2 day work week capped with a three day pinball festival!

    There is also this: https://www.3dhubs.com/ The material they use can be nylon to fiber reinforced nylon. That stuff is like carbon fibre.

    Is that an old picture? I didn't think Mike had the parties at the stores anymore. He throws private parties (like the Dialed-In one) at the Pepe Farm Rd place. Does he have a store front in your area?

    No, I was up in Enfield this morning when I saw the truck, so at the other side of the state from them!

    Ardvark Pinball spent the evening getting the test fixtures, NVRAM, boxes of boards (Williams driver boards, Bally Solenoid Driver, Bally light boards...) ready.

    Lexy Lightspeed (P3) from Multimorphic is all wrapped and loaded and will be in our booth, and I'm going to say, you should put some time on it. The game is a freaking blast. Ask Allan or me to explain some of the rules on it, but after a bit of play the game sort of explains itself. They have done some very cool work.

    And now for the PSA. Why do you still have batteries in your game? If you do, get them replaced at the show with NVRAM. I'm constantly surprised people still have leaky batteries sitting on these boards. Bring the boards to the show and have Ardvark install NVRAM. Those boards are very expensive to replace.
