Little problem setting the playfield angle on my T2. Floor is level, all legs are standard 28.5” – levelers maxed out in the rear and turned all the way in on the fronts. The best I can get (according to my dumb phone) is 4.7* but my target is 6.5*. I even tried longer hold down brackets but the edge of the playfield was hitting the start switch and even then I was only able to get the angle to 5.3*. Thought about getting 4” levelers but I don’t trust that much bolt showing and jacking up the rear with blocks makes me even more nervous (lotta nudging). Am I missing something here?

Do you have nuts in your front levelers? Take them out, that will add almost an inch in incline.

Easy fix: buy some rusty 31" legs at Allentown

It's not a problem at all, as long as you snug up the nut against the bottom of the leg.

Just measured my T2. 28.5" legs, all of them set as low as can go (nuts on back legs, no nuts on front), and the playfield was at 6.2 degrees

Buy new feet with the longer shaft or make some blocks to fit under the back legs.

By low I mean the opposite, all the shaft was above the bottom of the leg. I could have cranked it up to 10 degrees if I turned the back legs out all the way (but that doesn't play too well)

Weird. Wonder why they would be so different? Thanks for measuring... I'll try going nutless on the front. After that I'm going long-shanks on the rears.
