I was going through an Eight Ball Champ and found something interesting. An end of stroke switch was repaired using the end of a ty-wrap for a broken nylon spacer. I just though this was kind of neat and wanted to share. I bought this machine from a guy who bought it from a location and kept it for 20 something years and had it in his home bar. I assume an operator made this repair many years ago and I found it during restoration. It still works although I did replace it with a new EOS switch. Please share any cool repairs you may have discovered.

Sorry did not do a thorough enough search of the forum. I must be too old and still think of "hack" as like a computer hacker.
