love a good adventure story... watching
I love a thread like this documenting how regular humans deal with the issues, discoveries and generally getting through the project.
Thanks for documenting and sharing with us
I just started with my cheapo hf ultrasonic this past weekend after having it the box for like 2 years
Do you guys normally have to rinse the items or wipe them down after a cycle?
yeah thanks. its hearing people's wins and failures in these more finer details that really make all the difference in knowledge sharing. Instead of group think, lets share what we're baseing these conclusions on
After all that work, and the cost of the decals themselves, the 'getting the tidy trim' part is the element I imagine I would over the most... and probably end up ruining by keep trying to make slight improvements.
I love hearing the trial and error parts.. that experience is invaluable. So thx
But your time tracking... it sounds like my wife's fitbit tracking... doesn't seem possible I take way too long on things. Stupid centaur this past weekend ended up taking nearly 6hrs just to swap out all the drop targets, mylar new ones, and install and level correctly. (I hate how much you have to disassemble in those assemblies..)
Quoted from beelzeboob:
You don't have to drill anything out to do the pops, and you really don't need to be nervous about it, nor do you need to see it done. Here's what I did: I simply pushed the fin shank screws through the playfield (from the top, of course), flipped the playfield over on the rotisserie, and with a matching nut and washer, used a drill to power-screw the nut/washer onto the screw. This pulls the nail all the way through the playfield, and it sits flush because the playfield (Mirco ones, at least) have the countersunk spots for the nail head to sink into. Then unscrew the nut/washer and repeat 8 more times. It's time consuming, but you do NOT want to whack those nails through, especially on a rotisserie. You're just asking to crack the clear coat...or worse. One of those things where patience really pays off.
did you tighten them fast or slow?
Quoted from beelzeboob:
Yes...the f**king ball doesn't fit down the lane. Why? Because I ordered the wrong lane plastics. So now I've reordered new ones and have to wait to put them in and install the ramps. Which brings me to the next update...
This is what is scaring me as I go through my more recent Stern manuals... they absolutely SUCK. The don't include actual parts lists or maps for the majority of the game anymore. Unless it's a switch, rubber, light, coil, or MAYBE major assembly... you're pretty much left guessing. It's shockingly bad in my metallica manual.. even the electronic version. I'm screwed just figuring out what size stand-off or post is used.
At least it's not your PF drilled wrong
