Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:
Some dumbass “handy man” was bored and thought he was the first guy in the world to think that slapping 4 legs on some crap makes it into a coffee table worth $400.
These guys are walking liabilities. I keep a small one day a week job at a hardware store. These “Johnny hardhats” always come in with barebones knowledge and a YouTube video they just watched. I’ll never forget the guy who cut off all 4 fingers and part of his thumb putting in a window and CAME BACK 2 DAYS LATER TO BUY MORE.
Some people can’t be helped and I’m shocked they survived to adulthood!
Let's give it some perspective.
This is my Seawitch play field. It is being replaced with a Greatwich play field. I suppose it will wind up as a wall hanger if someone will buy it.
This is the right side of my Seawitch cab.
This is the inside of the right hand side of my Seawitch cab. You will notice a lot of paint missing from the inside of the cabinet. The reason all if this paint is missing is because the entire right hand wall of the cab is warped, or bowed inward. So every time the play field is raised, the side of the play field scratches paint from the wall. It is not just paint scratched off. There are grooves in the wood. The side of the cab is bowed inward about 3/8" at its deepest point.
For 4 years I figured I would do a carpentry trick called kerf cutting. While doing kerf cuts will probably work, I don't know how well it would work and I am leaning in the direction of replacing the entire sidewall. But if I am going that far, then I might as well just build a new cab, which is my plan.
This will leave me in a position of having an old blown out play field leaning against the wall and an old wigged out cabinet taking up space.
What would you, or anybody, suggest I do with these two worn out pieces of shit? I could throw them in the dumpster. I could set them afire.
I have extra worn out flipper assemblies. I have some old nicotine stained pop bumper parts laying around. And I will also have an old set of plastics. And I have lots of used rubber rings.
I have enough stuff laying around that I could build a coffee table that looks like an old pinball machine.
Should I build a coffee table, or should I throw all of this stuff away?
