    You guys do incredibly nice work.

    #3502 1 year ago

    Are those solar panels not working better when they are on the roof?

    #3503 1 year ago

    I cringe every time you guys pick up a power tool!
    Love the thread and everything about it.

    Thanks bro!

    Quoted from DDDwingmaster:

    Are those solar panels not working better when they are on the roof?

    I have a house and 2 extra buildings on my property and all roofs are full.
    10 of the panels in my bike shed i made myself and worked well...but they had to come off...i needed stronger panels to feed my hungry Tesla.

    Quoted from oldskool1969:

    Hey,we made it through another evening bro!

    If you didn't mash the pedal leaving every stoplight... your Tesla wouldn't be so damn hungry. ;D
    I envy you... as I'd really starting to want a Tesla... my issue is I can't seem to go for the cheap ones... cause I want one with the extended range.
    Oh well; maybe someone will send me a free winning loto ticket.

    Dude you will never drive a gas car ever again.
    It is so awesome.
    I placed a Tesla charger in front of my house and it charges really fast!
    It is a must,cause the normal cord charges insanely slow!
    This was the first model s 85 that popped up in the ads for a fair price and i took it.
    An s60 will get you nowhere!
    This one has great range,this summer i am going to do a Tesla supercharger vacation with it...
    Throughout Europe there are strategically placed superchargers that fill your battery in half an hour so you can reach far destinations.
    This specific model has lifelong free supercharging.
    So i don’t even have to pay for charging!
    It’s great being part of this movement!

    I just found this thread a couple of weeks ago as I started looking around for folks that were doing homebrews since I decided in january that this was the year I would finally tackle this crazy project and try to make my own. I haven't been super involved with pinside until I came across this thread.

    It's been a blast catching up on all 71 pages of this insane crazy mansion adventure!! You guys are amazing and a huge source of encouragement for me!

    I'm particularly interested in everything you guys do in learning the FAST system as I think that's the one I'll end up using in mine once I get to that point. I don't have any donor machines to part out, so it'll be a "from the ground up" build, too. So, don't hold back on sharing what you're learning with the FAST system, ok? I hope you don't mind if I start PM'ing you with a gazillion questions once I get in the programming portion of my build. Seriously tho, you guys rock, it's so freaking fun to come in here and see all the stuff you guys think up and just crank out like it's nothing - you move so fast?!?!?!!

    I still have no idea how you can drive your Tesla, Bas - aren't you legally blind now with all the welding you do without any goggles? hahahah!!

    Keep up the awesome work! I'll be following you all the way!

    #3508 1 year ago

    Hey skondris, the Pinball Amigos really hook in to their builds and share everything which is great for those wanting to try something crazy like a homebrew.

    make sure to check out their minion build and also this thread which is a index of all the homebrew builds on pinside over the last 5 years

    Hey dude,well...welcome to our crazy topic!
    Very cool to hear we motivate you man..
    Like the guys mentioned; the minion pinball build was done in a different way,using an excisting Bally pin and a P-ROC board.
    This build we wanted to learn new skills and went for a complete starter kit from Fast and build something from scratch.
    So far so good
    Ask any question you want,the basic game is easy to get going.
    We’ll get you there pinball brother.
    And btw: My Tesla has Autopilot,it drives by itself (kidding)

    #3512 1 year ago

    Looking at the moving sub playfield today,i am very happy with it..
    This is how crappy our first mech was:

    This is what the improved mech sounds like...it is fokkin smooth man!

    #3513 1 year ago

    Another fun thing i wanted to share with you guys is this great great parts find today!! I am finding usable parts everywhere these days!

    I found two old car boosters from some awful cheap brand.
    I always open up stuff to look what’s inside...

    966C8DC2-0602-4941-BE44-18CD3E6489CE (resized).jpeg

    #3514 1 year ago

    Appearantly,these boosters have a build in tire inflator pump!
    Aaaaand guess what?
    These are run by 2 very strong electromotors and cause they are automotive voltage...
    They are 12 volts!
    Excellent voltage to connect to the Fast boards!
    They have a nylon gear and a piston that compresses air...
    We can take the pistons off and use the motors for sure!

    #3515 1 year ago

    It just goes to show that everything is a potential part for your pinball machine!!?
    Sure,the Toyota rear wiper motor i used for the sub playfield is sorta huge and heavy...but due to the large amount of copper windings in that particular motor,it als runs on a way way lower voltage still being strong!
    Where a tiny pinball motor will get very weak at lower voltages cause the field gets to weak.
    So this scrapheap motor is great for this purpose
    I am just saying,look around you in the world...you don’t have to buy shitloads of expensive stuff for your build.
    You find good parts in other peoples garbage.
    Thanks car boosters for donating your organs!
    Now go recycle into sumtin else

    #3517 1 year ago

    So today i bought another rescue 911...i really regret wrecking the other one cause the cab,playfield and legs were really nice
    The only thing missing was the boards.
    Now i buy an awful condition 911 with working board set but the dmd is not working.
    Gottlieb manuals are hard to find on the ole interwebs,
    So i have been searching on pure luck the last hour.

    9ACDEC67-1D0D-4C65-AD88-BBD23692783A (resized).jpeg

    #3518 1 year ago

    I only paid like €490 for this crapper and the dmd passed the test (hooked up to no fear) so it is already a good buy in parts.

    #3519 1 year ago

    Appearantly,this dmd connector is lacking all voltages...i think the lightbulb above my head just lit up..

    36F6F114-9EEC-45AF-8F79-6CFA0DA1FA61 (resized).jpeg

    #3520 1 year ago

    Ha!!!
    I just shoved No Fear next to Rescue 911 and hooked the data cable(it barely made it)to the NF dmd(cuz that dmd is powered!) and it works!
    Now i need to figure out why all the voltages are missing...
    A schematic anybody??

    #3523 1 year ago

    Ah well,i still have the playfield over here from the first 911 i bought and it is very reasonable shape.
    Again...too bad i ripped it out and cut all the wires.
    Now i am looking at a playfield swap.
    But i think i am gonna make this thing my special little project...
    Now i have enough crap to build 1 good rescue 911.
    It fires up,the coils work,the boards work..this thing wants to live and i am gonna help him.

    Yup..a “stroopwafel” and i feel very sorry for you guys you have to go through life without them.
    Dutch Pinball museum has a lot of very typical Dutch stuff on their logo.
    Stuff we are proud of with a wink,you know what i mean.
    We don’t wear wooden shoes here on a daily basis but we are kinda famous for that.
