    That's the "trouble with tri-balls" I guess we need a multi-drill for Williams balls.

    I don't think necessarily what this thread had in mnd, but here is a router template I made to route the groove in shooter lane for my homebrew playfield. I used a 1" diameter round nose router bit for this, and the taper is set with the blocks on the bottom to match my 70s Gottlieb machines. simply clamped to the playfield and the bit set so it doesn't quite touch the playfield at the top end.

    no pic but I use the same pipe insulation stuck on the top front edge of the backbox when I fold the head down so it rests on the side rails.
