Ooh! Another chance to post the pics of my NOS PF by Kruzman!
Quoted from Doot77:
You need to quit posting those PF pics, everytime I see them I feel a little inadequate. That thing is beautiful!
Hopefully next year I can actually get it swapped into the game!
I was lucky enough to find one with a pristine cabinet. The red is faded a little but physically it is unblemished. Can't wait to get it up to CQ.
Put the money towards a pinsound board. The stock speakers spring to life when they are driven properly.
I have to ask about the sling plastics. The background colour on mine is orange. It exactly matches the orange background on the inlane ball guides. The Marco repros are red, and so whenever I see red sling plastics I think repro. I think Arts are original but they look red in the photos. And the story above about the lightly played NIB has red looking background on the sling plastics as well. Was there colour variation on the originals?
Quoted from LOTR_breath:
Cabinet wear by the flipper buttons is extremely common.
You know, I can't count how many visitors (non pinheads) to my basement have told me that the wear around the flipper buttons on my Tommy looks cool. Of all the things they could notice about all my machines I swear that has been mentioned the most. I am not going to ever "fix" it. It must ooze authenticity or something. I found it very interesting. Pinheads never mention it, and I never thought anything of it, but it stands out to normal people.

Hello fellow Tommy owners. I wanted to get some advice about an area that my ball gets stuck in every once in a while (see attached picture). It's not a huge deal, but it always seems to happen in multiball and tends to ruin that game. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? Thanks
Bend the tab holding the plastic away from the wireform a bit?
Edit - Although, looking closer, it seems to be resting right on the wireform that comes out to the mounting screw. Terribly unlucky balancing act.
Quoted from kilmarnock1350:
Anybody using pinsound? Anyone have alternate file versions to share? I'm going to play with mine. Ability to tweak the sounds and add our own flavor is awesome.
I'll share mine once I sit down and play with it. Faster Who songs probably suit action packed pinball better. Tough to merge, creativity is s great talent of which I'm limited.
Yes, and I took my version straight from the community board. It is fantastic.
