It's time to start putting up some videos and pictures of the recent Tumbleweed build.This will include all the timeline photos of the playfield from a sheet of ply to where it stands today.
Built between January and September 2013 this machine was built without a motor board or processor.All functions are performed using electronic 0 > 9 units run by 4017 chips and 555 timers.
The idea of this was to make a machine with cheap garden variety parts easily available to anyone.Details on the boards and circuits used to follow....
Here's Tumbleweed (the band ) who rocked into Pizza n Pinball to play their machine
