That Whirlwing should clean up nicely.

I bought a similar one recently... The guy has owned it for 20 years. The machine broke down in '97 and had sat, un-played until I bought it.

It really cleaned up good.

Quoted from mof:

I recently declared WW my "desert island pin" even though I don't consider it in my top 5 -- since it has so much packed into one pin. It's really a masterpiece pin right up there with TAF and TZ.

I agree

Diner's price is up there too.

Another great system 11 game.

Quoted from MAJRob:

Just became a member of the best system 11 machine ever produced.

I love system 11 games.

I agree, Whirlwind is THE best.

I don't know if you'd call it luck...but I finally found a nice Whirlwind a while back. It took 5 road trips to look at 5 different WW's.

Good luck in finding a PF.

It looks likes there's been a lot of recent interest in WW PF's. I wonder when CPR will get around to running them. It's been said that another run will happen.

I machined my own protectors for my WW

Quoted from toyotaboy:

anyone know where I can get a replacement lift ramp? Mine just cracked off the hinge

If someone could send me an unbroken one, w/ all of the hardware removed, I can design/machine some.

I'll only make the clear plastic part though.

Quoted from Barron:

I can tell you that the PinBits protector for that piece didn't hold up on location.

I designed/cnc machined all my WW protectors out of 1/16 polycarbonate.

I've never seen/heard of any of my protectors breaking.

Quoted from MMP:

I scored an unopened set of CPR plastics! But now I'm a bit worried about the pinbits set not holding up to the abuse.

I purchased indypinhead's custom protectors for my BSD- they look great and seem stronger than the typical protectors. I would absolutely love to buy a set for Whirlwind. Maybe if there is enough demand he'd produce a run of sets. Anyone else needing these?

This is on my to-do list.

Quoted from Barron:Oh... I thought he was saying he WAS Pinbits.

No, I'm not pinbits.

As far as I know, I'm the only one making protectors w/ polycarbonate. My protectors are cnc machined, not laser cut.

I was lucky w/ my WW.

The PF mylar was in great shape. I tool the TreasureCove polishing kit to it. Now, it looks like glass.
