Awesome machine.

Is there a location that lists all of the software upgrades along with the changes?

My WOZ was pre-loaded with version 3.0

I think it would be neat to be able to read through all of the upgrades/changes.

Quoted from TaylorVA:

Just an FYI but some games did not ship with a deflector that sits behind the wire guide in the search loop on the upper castle playfield. This prevents the ball from jumping the guide and get stuck on top of the wire guide. Mine was missing and I had no idea. I received mine in the mail this past week. If you have a moment you may want to make sure that deflector is there. My build date was July 18,2013.

Do you have any pictures?

I'm wondering if my WOZ has this.

Never mind....

Quoted from DCFAN:

The drop target should go down in ball search. I was doing some glass off checking of the Haunted rules (see other thread https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/wizard-of-oz-rulesheet-2#post-2462369 ) and saw that the drop target does go down when ball search is cycling . There is a small second coil on the drop target mechanism that causes the target to drop.

I was playing a game on WOZ the other night. The ball got stuck behind the drop target. The game went into ball search....the drop target never dropped. I had to shut the game off, remove the PF glass, and remove the ball myself.

I think JJP should do a software update that will make the drop target drop during ball searches.

doesn't look hand signed to me.

Looks like JJP scanned each signature and added those to the apron artwork.

Congrats on getting your WOZ

The ECLE is a beautiful pin....and fun too!

#974 4 years ago
Quoted from PorkChopExpress:

Gonna have to get that from you in the near future bro. Thanks for doing that mod. Looks killer especially with the fire pots. Great job

Thank you...

I've sold a bunch of them. Everyone seems to like it.

Quoted from dmacy:

I recently installed Pinball Bulbs brightening kit. It really made a huge difference in playing with lights off. The only thing I wish that came factory. Well done PB!

Nice throne room mod...

Quoted from TaylorVA:

Damage can happen at anytime on a game. Plastic protectors and Cliffys on a game out of a box are always a good idea.

I have WOZ plastic protectors ready to ship...

Quoted from Pimp77:

Too bad it's undownloadable...fails over and over.

It took me 6 attempts to finally get the download to complete.

Quoted from TaylorVA:

You'll want plastic protectors out of the gate as well.

I sell a 15 piece protector set. CNC machined, 1/16 polycarbonate.

#1168 3 years ago
Quoted from Pindufus:

Theoretically, no flipper wear should occur as the cabinets are clear coated. I had some of the non-permanent mylar lying around and used that around my flippers just in case.

Only the ECLE and some of the 1st standards off the line are direct print/clear coated cabinets. The rest of the WOZ pins have decals installed.

#1210 3 years ago
Quoted from nicoga3000:

Not 100% sure, but here's the exact response I got:
"The lighting system in the WOZ is separate from the spotlights and runs on 7.5 volts and communicates through digital data cables so it is not a good idea to wire anything to the GIs. 
Your best bet would be to run the wires over to the unused 12 volt spotlight connector near the ballon bumper."
Going to install plastic protectors and some mods today. Lot of stuff to take apart.
Also, it was sort of amazing last night and this morning...My wife turned the game on and played some on her own. She LOVES the game, and that makes this pin priceless in my eyes.

Let me know how you like my protectors.

#1213 3 years ago

WOZ isn't the easiest pin to tear apart, that's for sure.

#1298 3 years ago

nice throne room shroud, (acrylic cover)

#1412 3 years ago

Even though WOZ comes w/ a topper. I think I might machine this out of 1/2 acrylic or polycarbonate. I plan on lighting it from the bottom using a color changing, programmable LED strip.

I thing it will look cool hanging on the wall.

Quoted from nicoga3000:

Here's two pics of the protector for you.

That's the 1st I've seen/heard of the Kevlar protector. Looks great!

Nice looking plastic protectors, by the way.

Quoted from merccat:

Any reccomentations for items to check before first power up?

Check to make sure that the lower pop bumper ring isn't hitting the steel ball guides...2 separate spots to check.

Quoted from DCFAN:

Isn't Indypinhead working on a lighted drop target?

Yes, I have drop targets machined out of polycarbonate.

#1580 3 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

Can you sell them as an option without the light assembly? Most of us with WOZ already have a light installed.

Yes

#1588 3 years ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

Does mezel still make the winki?

I'm not sure if he still makes them.

If not, I have a lit drop target mod for WOZ that I just started selling.

#1605 3 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

How necessary do you think the upper pf protector on woz is? The one right above the lollipop targets? I saw a cliffy for that, just wondering what others think, or alternatives? Thanks.

VERY important

It was the 1st thing I installed on my WOZ

#1607 3 years ago

That's the one....

Keep in mind, you get a lot of air balls on WOZ.

That being said, I had my cliffys even before I got my machine. In all the excitement of unboxing, I decided to paly a few games befor installing the protectors...On my 3rd ball, I got an air ball directly into the edge of the munchkinland PF.....chipped the artwork on the edge.

So...yes, put that protector on right away. It's NOT just for looks....(Though it does look great).

I bought the same flippers...just haven't installed them yet.

I agree, those "slipper flippers" are ugly.

I picked up these 2 slot machine topper inserts today. I plan on designing/machining a couple custom toppers for my WOZECLE. I plan on back-lighting these w/ 12 volt LED strips.

Quoted from BlueIrocGuy:

I found this piece in the bottom of the cabinet and I'm not sure where it belongs.

Thanks!

That is a GI light pipe".
Instead of using the typical #44 or #555 bulbs, JJP uses surface mount LEDs under the playfield. The light boards are directly under the holes in the playfield that provide GI lighting.

#3317 3 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

That cylinder is for one of the GI light boards in the game. The light board under the playfield sends the light through the cylinder to above the playfield. It could have fallen out of the playfield or it could be an extra that was dropped by a worker when assembling the game (less likely).

Ya beat me to it......

#3329 3 years ago
Quoted from netcivil:

Also a good source for a protector set, need a set for WoZ and TWD.

I need help w/ my WOZ.

I fired it up for the first time in at least 4 months. On fire-up, the monkey came half way down and stopped. I re-booted....the monkey came down 9/10 of the way and stopped again. I rebooted again, the monkey moved down to it's lowest point, and stopped. I can't get it to go back up where it belongs. What do I need to do?

After manually, (by hand) moving the monkey to the up position...I rebooted the machine. Everything seems fine now.

Quoted from LTG:

If the problem returns. I'd clean off the old grease and put on new.
LTG : )

The only grease I have around the house is wheel bearing grease.

Will that work?

#5308 1 year ago
Quoted from merccat:

I think that stuff tends to be pretty heavy. A little dab of White Lithium Grease availablr from any hardware store smeared along the screw gear is fine (same as garage door stuff).

That's what I was thinking...

Already have it on my list of things to get at the hardware store soon.

Thanks

question does jjp still make any WOZ with CC cabinets?

Not that I know of.

#5922 1 year ago
Quoted from Nokoro:

Its the only version with the wooden apron which makes it pretty unique. The only debate you'll find about getting it is about the light boards. Some have had problems; others have not. With a new standard, you can get the 2.0 boards which are supposed to be more reliable. It is not an insignificant decision.

The ECLE also has the direct print cabinets....which is really sweet.
