    Quoted from JeffZee:

    Anyone else obsessive about having their games equally spaced and exactly parallel? I'd roll a game into place and then fart around with a tape measure for another five minutes. So I made a pair of gauge sticks that slip over one game to space out the next. I don't have any wide body games so I didn't worry about that. I had some trouble with the sticks slipping on games with steeply sloped side rails. So I smeared a thin layer of silicone caulk along the underside of the cross pieces. This is also me looking for any excuse to play with the table saw. All the parts were shaped from scraps of 2x4.

    Dude i added that to my list from this thread. i obsess about that constantly after i move one
    of my pins to do something. ill sometimes come back a couple of times to check again. Cant
    stand it if they arent spaced equal. Drives me nuts. hahaha.

    Was removing guide rails for orbit on a flash I just picked
    up and I made something out of necessity. I've read vids threads on getting side rails off and used that info on my prospector
    but was having trouble with these orbit and shooter lane
    guides. I got a small thin piece of cherry wood and sanded down
    one end like a shim to get behind the metal guide and on the
    other end i made a mini cats paw to get those pesky screw nails .
    One end for prying to get the head out some and other end
    to remove. Worked pretty good without marring anything. Of course when I started on orbit metal guides i was struggling
    and cussing and busting my knuckles using a plastic putty
    knife and some small nippers. Once I went out to my workshop
    and got this made it all went a lot easier.
