Is there a way to safely remove the stained glass mylar from this 1964 Palooka playfield? (It's adhered)

Quoted from vid1900:

It's probably "Contact Paper" for windows, so try heat and take it slow.

Thanks Vid. Will try that.

Where is the best place to get replacement playfield screws? The heads on these are pretty messed up.

By "heat", you mean a heat gun or will a hair dryer work too?

Quoted from vid1900:

Take the pop off so you don't melt anything and try a hair dryer.
Be careful, who knows what kind of glue was on that contact paper back then.....

I'll be very careful. It also gives me an excuse to buy a hair dryer for my wife's long black hair.

Thanks again, Vid.

Quoted from vid1900:

That is the nicest looking green penis I've ever seen.

Vid,

Just out of curiosity. Do you intentionally look for these or do you have some kind of penis radar?

Quoted from vid1900:

Both my Gaydar and my Penisdar are long range units.
I see things, wherever I go.

That answers my question, lol.

point me to the post so I can read it

Vid, how do you find certain posts? Divulging your search methods might make it easier for us to find the post we need.

What is TOC? (I agree with Google search working better for searching topic posts)

Thanks,

Quoted from DropTarget:

I see a while ago you posted a link for the HP4670 Windows 10 driver. That link is no good now and HP isn't making the driver available anymore. Do you happen to have the driver file?

What was the link? Currently I have an HP4600 and luckily I have an old netbook with Windows XP on it that I can use but I'm curious about drivers for newer Windows versions.

Best way to remove this without damage? I plan to get a Brad Setter for putting it back when finished.

Quoted from vid1900:

Always replace those disgusting old metal sleeves with newer nylon ones. The nylon is much less abrasive to the plungers.

What if the metal sleeves are stuck in the coils or are part of the coils?

Replace the coils or clean and polish the inside of the metal sleeves? (this means I would have to replace a bunch of coils on this game which isn't very practical)

Makes sense. Thanks, Vid.
