Quoted from flynnibus:

Because it's based in ignorance.

The only ignorance on this thread is coming from your blow hole.

There are best practices for both through hole repair as well as trace repair. Don't accuse me of being ignorant when you're too damn lazy to learn how to fix a board right. Apparently Williams was too.

Please enlighten us to your industry experience that makes you think that this is a hack?

Did you work for NASA or some other high end place where perfection is required?

This is a pinball machine - hardly a defibrillator......

Yep, I've seen this elitist crap from electronics 'experts' on Pinside.
It's really funny when discussing pinball machines like they are sustaining human life.
You just have to shake your head and ignore.
Everyone is a victim of their own experience, you don't hear that from people who really work in this bis.

which according to you are... is throw out the board and replace. Some great practices you got there...

Just make sure you keep those boards warm... we wouldn't want your solder going cold again!! /s

Quoted from pindergast:

I'm planning on removing these and replacing all the BR's and caps, is there any reason that would not be a working strategy here?

If you don't like the Pinside responses that you get, maybe you should not have asked the question in the first place.

I don't typically remove previous jumpers and cuts unless it's neccesary. Someone likely added the wires for redundancy and I have seen the traces in question abruptly go open due to stress. I would leave them and move on to more important bulletproofing tasks or internet forums.
