I was trying to level/pitch my machine and noticed the Tommy I have came with two different types and sizes of legs on it. Does anyone know which legs originally came with it, crinkled black or smooth? And the manual looks like they should be 28.5" legs. Does that mean a set of B/W legs will substitute? Or is there somewhere to buy the "correct leg" as Pinball Life and others I checked only show 30.5" legs for Stern which appear to be for newer models? Thanks.

I don't know. Looking earlier in this thread there was previous discussion about it too with no clear answer as some folks had the same pitch issue and others didn't using the same size legs:


It seems like it depended on how they made your cabinet. But if longer legs in the back is working for some, I'll probably give them a try on mine. I can't get past ~5.5 pitch as is.

Thanks guys for the responses.

Quoted from zahner:

is it unusual for the screws holding the propellers to be inhumanly tight?

Unfortunately I had the same issue when I replaced mine, they were on really tight!

Pliers and brute force with a screwdriver then?

These are designed for the PinSound series of upgraded sound boards. It's a cool product, you can see more details here if you aren't aware of them: https://www.pinsound.org/

Note if you already have this board in another machine, you might need to have a Data East power booster for use in Tommy.
