    Any pics or ideas on how to secure the playfield once the rear panel installed?

    Quoted from vid1900:

    What game?
    Pics?

    Well, I’m currently doing my IJ playfield and once I installed the rear panel, there was no way to secure the rear area because the rear panel gets in the way

    Quoted from John_in_NC:

    Scratch the clamps, pretty much useless unless it's an empty PF. I removed them and am using mini bar clamps like epeabs. Small and easy to use.

    I'm with you on this. The clams are useless once the rear panel and rails are installed. Can you share some pics of what you are using?

    Vid,

    Any idea on how to deal with the area that gets covered by the angle? On my IJ there's stuff that needs to be installed in that area but can't because it's covered by the angle iron. The rear panel doesn't help either, it gets in the way big time! The rear panel must be installed in order for me to finish the top of the playfield. I had to cut out sections of the angle just to secure the playfield but I just don't see how I can cut the angle on the bottom of the playfield to install the stuff that goes in that area. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

    Quoted from dmacy:

    I'm certain Vid and others have much better ways, but all I've usually done is either wait until I'm done (and those few items are only things left) and install them after pulling playfield off the rotisserie. I set it up on end safely off of rotisserie, and install what is needed. But I understand that's not always helpful when you have the back panel that needs installed for putting the back half together.
    In that case, I've undid that end from the angle iron after locking the other side from spinning (and verifying the other side is still firmly/safely attached) and gently move the playfield up with something to hold it up while attaching what is needed or slightly moving the playfield to the side to attach what I need. Even still, it usually won't have all screws attached until it's off the rotisserie.

    Yeah, looks like that may be the only way to address that area Thanks!

    Quoted from Soapman:

    Could you put the angle on the sides?

    That would probably work if you don't have the rear panel installed. With the rear panel installed there are only 2 access points from the rear where I can clamp and secure the playfield to the rotisserie. If I just put the angle on the sides, there is no way for me to safely secure the playfield. Again, the rear panel makes this very challenging.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Sometimes I use a few zip ties and let the playfield hang down a few inches until I'm done with that section.
    Other times, since my angle iron is perforated, I use 2 pieces of threaded rod.

    I tried using big zip ties but again, the rear panel gets in the way. There are no access points on IJ. The POA motor and bracket also get in the way. I cut and modified a piece of perforated angle to fit the IJ but in the end, the angle is still blocking access to stuff that needs to be installed in the middle section of the playfield. The angle also got super weak because of the modifications I made. That's the reason why I switched to solid angle. I truly believe this is a good rotisserie idea until the rear panel gets installed. Again, I'm only talking about IJ here. Has anybody made a rotisserie that secures the playfield from the sides and doesn't block the middle section of the playfield? Thanks!

    Good idea no the Z-bracket! I may have to go that route. Thanks!!!!

    #301 11 months ago

    So I got home yesterday and decided to have the angle modified to fit the IJ. Worked like a charm!

    Your problem will be when you try to install the rear panel. The perforated angle will get in the way
