You are correct on the order from left to right, 3-1-2

The bit is SAE 1/16

I have an older kit from harbor freight that has the bit and even though it is not listed I think it is in this set.

But again you can use the small torx as you do not want to torque down anyway or will crack the 'end'.

If it already cracked I have a set of 'covers' for the ends that stop the expansion and allow you to use the wheel without having to buy new ones.

Not sure if this will help with your Who Dunnit issue but thought it was interesting. Jump to about 6 minutes in to the slot machine reels part if you want.

Thanks. Did you fix yours yet? The project wasn't so bad. Maybe an hour of time. More annoying than difficult. You can see the one on the right had a full coating of metal shavings on it. Had to dig them out. Can compressed air helped but was weak. Probably better with a compressor.

Just waiting for a part for my flippers and time to actually play this thing.

Yeah, I actually used an air compressor on the ones I did. A few blasts (outside) and they were spotless. Canned air would still work, but it would take longer since the pressure's not as great. Digging the particles out with a toothpick is not recommended. They're just too clingy.

Did you flatten your shaft ends yet?

I did flatten the shaft ends. I used a dremel because that's what I had, but I imagine a bench grinder would have worked better. The canned air wasn't budging the metal shavings, so I had to kind of break them up with the toothpick, then blew them out with the air.

Tested the reels and they seem to be working fine. Spin well, optos are reading. I don't have flippers on the machine now, waiting for a bracket to come in, but once I get that I'll test them in gameplay. Thanks for all the tips.

Can someone post a pic or let me know if they have bare posts between the inlane and top of sling? Normally you see the post with rubber circle for ball to hit and bounce off etc. Or I'd think at least a post sleeve. Just picked one up a few weeks ago cleaned it up nice but just noticed that mine is a metal post nothing on it? Thanks!

The manual doesn't list a post sleeve or rubber, and mine didn't have one, but I put a sleeve. I haven't played it like that yet to see ill how it plays though.

The metal post is there to stop the top of the inlane guide plastic from being broken by the ball over time. No rubber. If you add rubber it makes the game too easy.

Ok thanks to both of you for the help! I just thought it was odd as metal only but if that's the design I'll roll with it!

After falling out of fashion for a bit, it's become a much more common design element again with many of the recent Sterns.

I had the same thought and added one, but instead of easier I thought it made it harder. Now maybe because I'm just not a good player, but it seemed like the inlane was tighter and had more drains down the outlane. So I removed it.

Today I join this club. A couple playfield switches are out. The battery holder looks rough, and the DMD outer layer plastic is separating. Cant wait to get into this some more and discover this game for the first time.

Quoted from jokerpoker:

No one is remaking them yet. You can flame polish them but it’s an art. If you get it wrong you will have a melted mess!

I read (possibly early in this thread) that you can't flame polish Who Dunnit? ramps as they are a different plastic and they bubble and turn to mess.

I'd like to know if someone had success.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Which multiball is that possible and how do you do it?!

I know your post was a long time ago (2 years) but I've only just seen it and didn't see anyone else answer.

To get a 500,000k jackpot it's a combination of things and is within the jackpot you get from going to the basement.

The jackpot starts at 75,000k (from memory) and during multiball, each hit of the pop bumper raises the jackpot by 1,000. If however, you collect the revolver before you start multiball, each pop bumper hit increases the jackpot by 5,000k. The jackpot stays throughout the game and you can continue to build on it in each basement multiball.

My method is during multiball, if the ball is on my right flipper, it hit it up the loop to the pop bumpers, if it's on the left flipper, I hit it up the roulette to claim a jackpot. This way I am building the jackpot while taking some points along the way.

Apparently Planetary Pinball is doing the Whodunnit ramps, so there's hope soon!

All of the ramps or just the elevator ones?

I think just the main elevator one, but not 100% sure.

Quoted from JustAnotherRat:

I'm guessing that if that's true it would mainly relate to the center elevator ramp as that particular one is an extruded piece not a molded one like the others. Again it's kind of a guess but i think the type of plastic used in extrusion has different qualities to the molded type.

#619 12 days ago

The plastic scoop that gets the ball to the elevator ramp seems to be made of the same plastic and needs to be redone too

I think the U-turn plastic is polycarbonate, which is why it can't be flame polished. I doubt Planetary Pinball is doing that one, but they could surprise us!

Will the circled areas in these pictures be included in the new ramps?

We are running the Center Ramp only - which is injection molded 03-9411 ... which makes up Center Ramp Assy A-20426

The other ramp would be vac-formed which are A-20421 (03-9407 is the ramp) Right Ramp Assy and A-20420 (03-9406) Main Ramp Assy - These we are not making ... request to Larry at Starship Factory or other ramp mfg's for those two.

The top picture is a separate ramp, not the elevator ramp no?

I had decent results using acrylic glue for that piece

When can we order and can I get it shipped to Australia?

#628 20 hours ago

The bottom picture is of the ramp we are doing and yes it would have the mounting tab (pic attached).

The top picture is normally would have the two tabs (cad extract attached).

Getting small amount this week, and then larger batch ... hopefully 30 days, but could be longer, probably not shorter ...

Can’t wait. Need new ramps like crazy. Will you post on your website before here?

I knew the center ramp section was injection molded (and not vacuum formed).
Which means the cost will be affected by how many you have run while the mold is set, and I see no price shown yet.
