    Quoted from Pinchroma:

    An example I just had playing: there is a loud audible hum coming from my flippers when trapping. You can hear it over the sound. Is that normal for stern coils? I'm literally asking because I have no previous experience with their machines.

    Yes, they all do it.
    You can mess with the coil stops and minimize it but it will still be there.

    Quoted from Pinchroma:

    I love the game. Love love love it. I'm not selling it for anything. I guess I need time to get used to it but it's going to be an adjustment. Side by side next to ToM or sttng it's a staunch difference. And to the point about the menu's? They are fantastic. Very elegant and clear.
    My biggest complaint overall is the cabinet play field bracket system. Older machines offered no side to side sway. Just in, out and upward pivot and that satisfying "click" when you pull the PF out. Slamming the play field in an out and listening to everything rattle is unnerving especially when you can shimmy it left to right while attempting to slam it back in straight.

    You don't need to slam it, push it back to the stop, hold the apron with your hand and push down on it with your forearm.
    It will glide right in.
    Make sure you are hanging onto the apron, once it goes over the stop it will shoot in there rather quickly.

    Quoted from pinb0t:

    Thanks for showing me this when I bought the LOTR from you. I've passed this on to a few people who I have caught slamming a PF back into a game.

    Works great doesn't it, I guess you either have to lift the back or slam the peg and plastic LIME games.

    Quoted from PW79:

    What is this peg system?
    I am clueless on this

    Stern eliminated the service rails and metal apron on the Less Is More Editions in favor of a couple of pegs and a plastic apron.
    You can't cantilever the PF on the pegs like you can the with the service rails so you either have to lift the back and front to get the PF in or just grab the pegs and slam it in.
    If you want service rails and metal aprons for these models you have to buy them separately.
