Quoted from kermit24:

It is coming[quoted image]

Am I the only one that thinks after 2 yrs waiting this looks like they just cut up a window unit and glued an R2 head on it¿?

I saw these posts about the Prem left post/drain issue and I was already thinking the left drains on my Pro were bad. I did a simple reversable little trick I used on my Flash Gordon (which is an outlane vampire) and now my cheap left drains are reduced about 50%. I used one of the smaller rubber rings that comes in the SW rubber kit from Marco and 1) unscrew the left outlane post & take the tiny rubber off, 2) loop the new ring around it and stretch it over to the next post just above it. Unscrew the nut on the plastic above that 2nd post just enough to give you some room to get the new rubber in there. Now instead of half the balls catching in that little pocket and dropping strait down the left drain, they get slung right back out into play.

Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:

Why not remove the doughnut ring off the top post so it doesn't end up rolling around the game when it get's knocked off?

I felt like it helped hold the rubber ring in place tighter because those skinny ‘spike’ posts don’t have a deep divot where the rubber goes. But yea def don’t have to put it back on and whether it stays on better with or wout it I guess time will tell, either way I never mind a reason to pull the glass and wax the pf while I’m in there(:

Quoted from unwallflower:

Hi guys, super clueless question here. The office I work in has what I have figured out to be a Star Wars Pro machine. I only recently started playing it, but either I’m doing something wrong or it’s broken-ish

When I got my SWpro from 2nd owner this year the fork rods in the Death Star shot would get stuck in the up position 50% of the time. Sometimes lost ball protocol would jostle them loose and sometimes hitting the flippers a bunch would jiggle them down enough for the ball to finally drop out. I called Stern and they said they had never heard of this issue. We popped the hood and after examining the Fork assembly we could tell the white plastic spacer between the assembly and playfield was binding the forks, the holes in the spaces were too tight. We took the whole assembly out and took the white spacer piece off and used a drill and drill bit and reamed out both holes on the spacer just a tad and Boom no more binding and it has played like a brand new game ever since.
