Well, it just happend.. I bought a pinball machine, my first ever - a WCS.
Im a total newbie when it comes to electronics and doesnt really see myself as a handy man, buy hopefully I can make this work in the long run. Trial and error..
Always been into pinball but never owned a machine myself. The plan was to buy a few of my favorit pinballs when me and my wife bought a house (pinball isnt really suited for smal apartments) but when I got the opportunity to buy a WCS, who is on my wishlist, for a good price I couldnt say no. So it's staying at my parents for the moment till I get myself a house
I think it's in quite good condition (can post pictures later on). Both the cab and pf looks good and everything is working so far from what I can tell after playing it for a few hours with friends.
I'v noticed some wear on the holes though. From what I'v heard thats a common issue with WCS. Read about protectors and many mentions "Cliffys". How difficult are these to install? Been told that lots of stuff has to come off before you can get them into position. Worried im not gonna be able to get everything into place afterwards.
Any tips how to keep track off all the parts when disembling and remembering where everything goes?
Alot of lamps doesnt work. But since im converting to LED's its not much a problem as I will replace all lamps anyways. I did notice that in the backbox no lamps but the flashers are working. Could this just be a coincidence or might there be some other problem causing it?
Thats all I'v noticed so far, but I guess more things will show up (hope not) as I start poking around.
Oh, and its dirty. Really dirty. Need to buy some cleaners
