Quoted from wnorwich89:

Yep. Looking forward to seeing it come along, as well as the guy's who just got one in France. This is the machine that popped my pin cherry, hopefully one will pop up in a year or so.

Yeah, I'm the guy. I'm just too lazy to make a detailed report on the work I do on the machine, like mof does. Besides, I go at a slow pace so it would not be that exciting. I'll keep posting questions here and there, and at the end you'll see some pictures.

It's a great pinball, and that's why I picked up one in a poor shape, I could not just let it go or let it die in some guy's shed. I'm sure it was the same for mof.

Quoted from mof:

So WTF is up with some of the star posts in Nine Ball with the hex bolts? You turn them and they don't unscrew. I look under the playfield, and they look like the end of a carriage bolt. Who thought this was a good idea? Why are they in Nine Ball, and NOT in Seawitch? Where should I lock in and hold the bolt, in order to turn the nut? Bizarre.
So many questions...

I had the same issue in my Nine Ball with a dozen of them. I ended up sawing them (the posts and the bolts within) and ordered new posts. I'll also order new bolts for all the posts, well the ones that have bolts because some have screws, this time with a head you can grip.

Quoted from mof:

ok - link me which posts you ordered, I'm all for upgrading the mechs to make the game more serviceable.

You can find them at this retailer in France :
But I'm sure you can also find them elsewhere, they seem to be pretty standard gottlieb posts. Just be careful, there's two sizes (three are shorter ones on Nine Ball).

Quoted from mof:

I guess there should only be 7 of the tiny .../3400 coils, per page 15 of the guide. Cool...

You can't drop the target n°8 any other way than by touching it, so no need for a coil ...

Just had a look, and The Pinball Resource has them (the posts). It's in the U.S. so I guess it's more practical for you.
