Just keep Playin...!!
Here's how I would fix it
1 of 2 ways
#1 unscrew the shooter assy and file/grind the shooter rod *outside* the game - keeps shavings out of the game
#2 pull the shooter, clamp it in the 'pulled' position, and cut the knob off the shooter then carefully release the clamp
Either of these ways, you don't get a cabinet full of shavings
Good advice johnwartjr
oh and WOW some people and the way they treat there nice things.
wow imagine how the ball was.
had one exactly like that, pulled the knob, used a vise-grip on the outside, cut the knob, thats what i did.
How many times do you think you would have to plunge the ball without a shooter tip in order for it to look like that?
New shooter is the only option. The length after grinding will be significantly shorter.
I've cleaned a couple up that were that bad, and been able to reuse them. It wasn't *that* much shorter!
