Wondering if I am missing a wire that connects the first card to the second card (left pin on both cards). Also wondering if someone can double check the rest of the wiring on this drop target.

That does help! At quick glance, it looks like mine is wired up correctly. Will double check tomorrow.

Glad I could help.

Let me know if you need anything else..

Drop targets are now working correctly. What a pain to adjust and clean them. Two more questions.

Is the one-inch wire form needed? I am missing one on the behind the targets. Where can I find a replacement for it?

How does the rubber ring go behind the 3 bank drop target? Is it a single ring around everything (similar to the photo) or is there smaller rings on the outside post for a total of three rubber rings?

The missing wire form stops target from being broken. I am sure not to hard to find.

You can make one from .095 steel rod, which can be purchased from Amazon or your local hardware store may carry it.

I use TIG welding wire to make these wire forms.

I just "obtained" a small piece of SS tig wire for just that purpose.
I like using stainless wire since its more forgiving than steel when I bent it wrong and have to tweak it.
