Quoted from Pinhead1982:
I would really appreciate High_End_Pins insight I to this development.. could this indeed by the cause of the pooling/chipping.
What would you High_End_Pins do for the posts?
That might explain things in some areas but not all.
You have this happening in other areas that are low traffic and some that have plastic post. It’s happening on other titles as well so in my opinion it’s deeper than this but the observations made are insightful and have basis,
If the post can’t rock it can’t do damage. True!!
Just because a post does rock should that cause this type of damage?
Are there no other games in history that a post can get loose and rattle around a bit?
If there are do they have this type of damage?
I really and sincerely don’t have a horse in the race.
I use Mirco playfields when needed and I haven’t had negative dealings with him nor JJP. I don’t care about the latest thing at all when it comes to pinball. Today’s new game is tomorrow’s restoration so I am glad they are being produced.
What I do have is some insight as to what I would expect of a playfield and how as well as when and where it should show significant signs of use and under what circumstances.
In my opinion these are poor outcomes to common and expected uses and very fast timeframes.
I don’t know if it’s just a sign of the times or a flawed product. I just know it’s not what I am used to nor would expect.
