I build my packs with 8' leads. I drop the pack down into the body and set it next to the cash box. Opening the coin door is easy so maybe I'll replace batteries more often. Maybe.
Old thread lock.
I've had some success with using a soldering iron to heat the underside of the T-nut. Seems to break the bond.
Anyone have some scrap backbox wiring? I'm working on a Cyclone, but I think Big Guns and Space Station would be the same. I'm specifically looking for a few inches of wiring associated with J1 and J8 on the D-8345 power supply. I'm looking at undoing some connector hacks. I believe I may have to extend the existing wiring. It would be cool to have matching color codes for my extensions.
...I'd also be interested in buying the whole wire harness. Don't care about condition.
Thanks for the tip. I might do that. I'd still like to get a hold of a scrap wire harness for all the different colors and for any future projects. I once bought a box of hardware from a junked Pin*bot. It's amazing how many times that's come in handy. It beats trying to stock every little screw, washer, nut or post I might need.
Anyone around northern VA want to trade a System 11 for a Xenon?
Look for the key. Could be hanging somewhere on the inside of the coin door. Could be screwed to the inside of the cabinet somewhere. Could be screwed under the cabinet.
This has been discussed elsewhere and it seems that the center self-latching switch is the one that's hard to come by. I took a look at Digikey, but I don't know enough about switch terminology to reasonably narrow down their 170,000 push button switch choices.
Quoted from mbeardsley:
did you bend/drill them yourself?
Yes. They are the basic cams that come with any lock...
If you're not placing an order, it may be easier to just go to the hardware store and buy a couple of cheap locks. Or use scrap metal. Although filing out a square hole would be a pain.
Quoted from statictrance:
If not, anyone have a good process for cutting laxan and decaling one? I actually own the game, so I could theoretically scan and print a 1 to 1 match pretty easily
I've had some success with this...
Going back to this discussion beginning at post 2877, Troxel has the system 11 switch assemblies including the center self latching switch...
I ended up fixing my old switch and kept the Troxel assembly as a spare. So I didn't actually try it. But the only difference I see is that the sheet metal connecting bracket is a bit thinner and the mounting holes aren't tapped. You could tap your own or switch to sheet metal screws.
