Most antique restoration joints offer brass plating, in fact, you can do it at home

Congrats on new machine!

Better get some limo tint for that window, or kiss all the red and yellow on your game goodby.

Use your meter and see if your coil has voltage.

#353 6 years ago
Quoted from RonB:

Even with the shades always closed?

If you can see light, the game will see light.

Tint the window with Limo Tint (it blocks 99 % of UV light, but still lets you see outside).

You can peel it off easily when you sell the house.

Quoted from Carl_694:

Anyone know the proper alignment for the third flipper?

You want it aligned with the metal ball guide above it. A smooth, bump-less flow to the flipper. (think of the upper flippers on F14).

Quoted from Spraynard:

the ball tends to fly off the rails.

Loosen the screws that secure the right side of the ramp and retighten it pulled all the way to the right hand side.

It only takes a few mm and all will be right with the world again.

(I just did this a few weeks ago on a customer's machine)

Stuff does quietly get made.

I've seen those rings cast in aluminum for sale at shows...

Quoted from Glarrownage:

Lol, a truer statement has never been made. That's why I would like to see a proper site created, so this hobby can be allowed to flourish as it should.

That would be a pinball Darknet, with the identities of the sellers encrypted.

How does Silk Road Pinball sound?

#1742 4 years ago
Quoted from Neinhalt:

About the diodes, can anyone advice?

Install the proper diodes on the coils.

You might think of the diodes as surge suppressors, protecting the transistors.

#1743 4 years ago
Quoted from Neinhalt:

Flipper is fixed, someone installed it already half-way extended. I guess someone wanted those Shadow loops to be impossible

Take that flipper apart and rebuild it completely.

You need that flipper to be VERY responsive on Shadow.

Quoted from Robert__:

or better yet the whole battery kit with plexiglas.

If you can't find a new one, I'm sure I have a used one somewhere you can have for $10.

#1890 4 years ago
Quoted from Robert__:

Vid1900 ;
Ok so its complete with plexi,Holder, cable ?
Whats the shipping cost to sweden ?

Yes, it's the complete board, holder and cable, but....

Sorry I got your hopes up, I did not notice you were in Sweden.

I can mail USA stuff at work, but international I'd have to go to the Post Office, pay for parking, stand in line for 30 minutes, and fill out customs forms.

Sorry again.

Quoted from BulkOfTheSeries:

I dropped the color DMD in mine today and it looks awesome. I'm having three issues though.
1) The Sanctum Wall wont always lock in the 'up' position. Sometimes it fires and tries a few times, never makes it. Sometimes it locks up briefly to fall back down. Sometimes it works. It appears to be able to raise all the way up, but not 'stay' up.
2.) The back row of my battlefield doesnt pop back up after they're knocked down. They stay down. Is this a switch I need to adjust? I think it is but I'm unsure how.
3.) My ball gets stuck on the left ramp too often. It 'dies' on the wire headed to the right side of the machine, where the little switch the ball rolls over is present. Is this common?

Someone may have replaced the set screws over the years with the incorrect ones.

You want the CUP POINT screws, not the more common Cone Point.


#2454 4 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Are you able to buy the cup point screws as a cap screw anywhere, similar to this one at Marco (I think the Marco one is a cone point) ? http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/4010-01066-06

Often cup point machine screws have square heads, but someone like Grainger or Fastenal probably have them in cap heads.


#2456 4 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Thanks Vid. I wonder why cup point tips are used instead of flat.

Cup Points dig in, flat would slip.

The "butt head" fastener might be more commonly known as a Sex Bolt.

Quoted from Luppin:

hello, not a native speaker, and i was wondering the meaning of "Any-one for Peking Duck?".
I understand it's a quote from the movie, but what is the in-context meaning?

In the movie he says:

"You know it's the strangest thing, but I have this sudden craving for Peking duck"

and the broad says:

"That's so odd"

Quoted from Luppin:

On my Shadow I see I have red coil on the left flipper (FL11630) and blue coil (FL11629) on the right flipper. The manual calls blue for both.

The red one is weaker, right?

FL-11753 - Used with short flippers and close shots <<<<< weakest

FL-11722 - Used for close shots near drop targets

FL-11630 - The standard, most commonly used coil

FL-15411 - Used for long playfield shots

FL-11629 - Used for long shots and high ramps <<<<< strongest

Quoted from Bartzenegger:

Have a question ....... Is shadow considered a deep game ?

Any lack of depth is made up for by it's sheer difficulty.

Many owners I know have never completely finished the game.

Quoted from Luppin:

In the Shadow the biggest problem is balls falling from the battlefield, so coming from the TOP. Do you think it make sense toinstall plastic protectors on TS below the plastics? Or are there some plastic protectors to be installed on top?

That makes sense to install them on top for protection.

#2902 3 years ago
Quoted from Luppin:

I saw some set that looks like soft blue.

That is probably the peel off film that protects the plastic.

#2904 3 years ago
Quoted from Pesmerga:

there isn't a clear product that doesn't become yellow that i could use?

2 part auto clearcoat never turns yellow, even after years in sunlight.

Quoted from Pesmerga:

Sorry again for my english..hope you will understand what i mean..

Your English is better than our Italian!

We can understand you perfectly.

#2907 3 years ago
Quoted from jawjaw:

Anyone recognize this broken piece? It looks like part of a pin. It's brass looking and about the same gauge as the wire forms. Found it laying at the bottom of my cabinet when installing leds. Cab is pretty clean so don't think it is just some random junk. Everything is in great shape and plays great so cannot figure it out. Any ideas?

Is it partially hollow, like a rivet?
