    You guys should sell advertising space on your walls. Help pay for the builds.

    #2760 1 year ago

    This is one of the greatest things I've ever witnessed! Can't wait to see these weekly posts on here. You guys are so much fun, I think I'll sell my home and move over there next to you!

    #2761 1 year ago

    I hereby declare Friday the 13th of April,
    "Black nail Friday."

    Lol,yeah you just might be right,it grew out quite a bit in a few days.

    #2763 1 year ago

    Great Update!

    Here's mine:

    I had to troubleshoot a bad resistor in the main flicker LED circuit which was causing 3 of the LEDs not to light.
    Once I figured that out; I had an issue with the UV LEDs I speced which seemed to be junk... they couldn't handle being soldered to the board?!
    I put a set UV 1206 LED I had in my parts bin... let me know if you guys want me to try and find a better UV LED.

    #2766 1 year ago

    Let’s roooock!!!!
    It is awesome friday and i feel great man!
    Mic is working some overtime,haven’t heard from Dick but he has a new girlfriend for short while now so we should probably do the math.
    Getting laid surpasses pinball easily
    But anyway,i feel like starting this pinball friday with some wiring man!
    The nano controller replacement is here!!
    Customs made us pay €27 tax but fuck it,it’s finally here! (Lie people,put a value of €2 on the box,Just lie? Waste of money)
    Sadly Fast was out of servo controller boards and i ordered a shitload of servos...so that did not go as planned but what the hell...it’s not like we are almost done right?
    Ton of things to do!

    First off,i am hooking up 48v to all the coils.

    Right...the moment is there,gotta step out of my comfort zone and learn how to crimp these tiny tabs on wires and build new solid connectors..

    Tip: The more you drink, the easier they get!

    Or, maybe you just care less......either way you are happy.

    #2777 1 year ago

    Hmmm the zip seal baggies say: .156”and .100” and if i make an educated guess,there is one size for tiny wired/low voltage switch connectors and bigger size for thicker connectors that drive coils..

    Dude we love you too,good you attended the show tonight!
    Gonna be fun! Cheers!

    Yeah i am hiding the black nail with black nailpolish,whoever’s date guess in the black nail poll is the closest,wins a pinball amigos tee or a pinball amigos baseball cap!
    So go to the poll and put in your vote!

    image (resized).jpg

    #2781 1 year ago

    So to be clear,the winner of the black nail poll wins one of these,the tee is a high quality fruit of the loom tee and you can pick any color printing on it and if you like it,the amigos autograph the shirt.(or the cap)

    #2782 1 year ago

    Ok where wuzz I...
    Yeah...so big and small connectors..

    #2783 1 year ago

    Ah?
    This is super easy!
    What a great system!!
    And i did it right the first time!!

    #2784 1 year ago

    Okay,this is gonna be superfun actually?
    The wiring is super short and length is easy to eyeball...
    The coil says “poef!” On the wrapper cause i blew the diode at some point in the past...if you reverse current on a coil,it goes “poef”

    #2786 1 year ago

    Allright,that stuff is connected...now excuse me for a bit,i am going to salvage some longer wires in the pinball graveyard alley.
    Pretty dark outside now so a picture is pointless

    #2787 1 year ago

    Yeah these wires are great!
    I took a few pics of items i ripped out of the gottlieb cab.
    Great red flipper buttons and switches ánd i saw a cool tilt bob too but it is damn cold outside and i almost froze to death...(okay okay...that did not happen,but it was very cold though..)

    #2788 1 year ago

    This is a smaller connector for the flipper buttons wiring.
    These .100” tabs btw are harder to crimp cuz they tiny man...wow...
    The long wiring i salvaged has a connector half way...so if the playfield needs to come out,i can unplug it.
    Thát was a dumb mistake with the Despicable Me pinball...you bump into eachother the entire time..
    This time around,i can take out the playfield when Mic is busy with the mansion for example.

    #2789 1 year ago

    You know what?
    Just because it is awesome,i am drilling in the flipper buttons and switches!

    C9C637C4-7C18-4897-8E85-987946FC4DD6 (resized).png

    #2790 1 year ago

    It’s quite easy,drill all the way through,and 30 mm drill on both sides,but leave an edge in the middle for the locknut.
    Like so:

    #2791 1 year ago

    And then the button slides right in and twist on the locknut,BOOM!!

    like the fart button on previous machine,another unique start button would be great if only a minor thing,like maybe a doorbell button with a crazy sounding type of doorbell

    #2793 1 year ago

    The switch still has its screws from the gottlieb cab,bolts right on

    Here are some more door bell sounds.

    #2800 1 year ago

    Beautiful wires,and i have so many colors!?
    We will be making a manual for this machine so it is important we use different wires for everything.
