I have the back alley Cannon over my shooter lane. It has a "wick" on top and I was hoping someone knows of a source for a tiny led flickering flame to put there. I googled around for models and stuff, but can't find one that would run off the games power, rather than batteries. Thought it might look cool, but I'm not smart enough to find one . Any ideas?

Contact Steve "Hemi" over at Pinball Refinery. He might have an idea what will work

Send me of pic of his cannon and estimate the hole size. We have small flickering Leds over at mezelmods that I can get to you.

Awesome!
Here is a pic. The opening is about an eighth of an inch, but looks like it could be drilled easy enough. You kind of look down at it from overhead while playing, if that matters. Its on top of the barrel, not the ball shape at the bottom end.

you can get a very small fire led set here www.modeltrainsoftware.com just shop around their site. You can also get "flicker leds" but they just flicker like a candle from http://shop.evilmadscientist.com/productsmenu/353 or get some led candles at the $ store and build from them. Have fun.

Wait...when did you get a POTC, DB? That's not Richie's, is it?

Still waiting for mine to arrive...

I have had it for about 8 years.

Thanks for the leads!
