    I recognize that it is EM Bingo Repair/Restoration Season when the weather gets cooler and the rain and or snow prevents doing stuff outside.

    For me it is my Laguna Beach. Last known problem was balls continuously lifting. I have gather what I know are required tools and supplies, the manual and the schematic. I also have checked into the videos for review and relocated the last posts made by folks who were willing and able to help this new guy try to figure it out.

    As we venture into the machine, a few general questions arise:
    1. Since I am missing many labels, what do you suggest I use to label items as they are found?
    2. How much cleaning should I be doing? I have worked on cleaning and lubricating stepper units and connectors. Can I clean wires and their connections?

    Oh, well. I am looking forward to playing my machine again. After all, it is that season.

    Hi Frank.
    I thought I would reply to your lonely post
    How is you machine working?
    Some times I find leaving things alone avoids problems later.
    As far as labeling, I like to have all my relays well labeled.
    A lot of my wires are so faded I doubt if any cleaning would bring
    out any colors.
    I noticed that a Laguna Beach came with wood side rails
    I love wood side rails.
    You know, I bet a nice set of wood legs would really look good as well.
