    Rule number 35:

    Never expect your thread to stay on track for very long!

    Rule number 36:

    Always remember to pull the plunger out a little bit when lifting the playfield!!

    rule 35 is what makes the em section of pinside MUCH more fun than the other sections...

    Ummm yeah! On rule 36, I wasn't going for that at all! I guess turnaround is FairPlay!

    Tired of ripping the tip off!

    There, have fun with that.

    Don't mind at all! This thread was created for humors purpose only!

    Rule 37: Don't go to garage sale and fix the EM machine on sight and then ask for less money!

    Run a ground wire from the plug to the transformer chassis, switch housing (if you have one), the coin door, lock down bar and shooter rod. Cut from a piece of old Tupperware or similar pliable insulating plastic, a piece the same shape, but a little wider, than the fish paper on the replay switch and add in to the stack next to the fish paper. That way you have a second and better layer of insulation between the metal replay button and that line voltage switch. It may not be that important with US 110 volts, I don't know how lethal that is, but here in the UK it is 240 volts, no joke if you get bit.
