    Figured I'd see what other things other guys out there keep goofing up when working on machines. We all have our little foibles, so let's have some fun with them. For me, the two most common ones I do that drive me nuts are these....

    1: Flip up a playfield, without forgetting to take out the balls first. Thankfully I haven't broken anything yet.

    2: Older solid states, I keep putting the heads on with the power cord still inside the cabinet. So I have to take the head off again to get it out.

    What about you guys?

    Oh yeah, another favorite of mine is the big greasy hand-prints I always leave right in the middle of the playfield glass..... on the inside.

    Here's a new one I did..... not something I've done before, but still amusing to me.

    I managed to glue the playfield glass into my Lectronamo when I was re-gluing the neck to the cabinet.

    ..... it got better.
