Quoted from Homebru:

Funny. On this list that will likely go away when Steve opens the official list i am number 33. It sounded familiar and I went back to check the official CB list and I was, yep, you guessed it...33. Must be destiny!

I say that's a sign the list is legit.

Why don’t you take the #9 spot? Smiley does not exist! That should make up for the confusion/typo. Think of it like the stock market...start at #19, drop to #39 and then gain back to #9! They all end in 9 so it sounds like a match.

#3704 6 months ago

Help!

I can't get the original crystal ball unstuck from the black plastic mount. Can anyone give me any tips?

I see back a few posts for Super Glue remover?

You can try using a fishing line wrapped around the base and work it back and forth. I used that method and although it didn’t snap it all the way through it helped. Then I used a pair of pliers to wiggle it off completely.

I would've never thought of that. Sounds like a good idea.

Whatever you do, please don't destroy your machine on my account. I meant for this mod to be a relatively simple replacement, but I know all machines are different. So please be careful.

#3710 6 months ago

It seems that I've long since missed out on the crystal ball stand. Damn, we need a mailing list.

Is there a fixed run count for Witch 2.0? I have 1.0 but may upgrade, it would be nice to see something first

Yeah, I took an extended Pinside break and apparently totally missed out on the crystal ball mod. Bummer. My witch and monkey are sad.

I love how this pops up when you actually read through all of that. Appropriate.

One more thing. My wife and I are still busy packing up the mods (well, mostly my wife). So if you haven't heard from me yet, you will shortly.

Get thee behind me, Satan!

#3718 6 months ago

I have to say that (must be design tolerance differences) but the guide holes did not line up well for mine and I had to force it in and wasn't sure it would fit at all, and also the way my TV metal bend or whatever made it difficult to sit the ball close to the actual TV might be a good 1/4 inch separation. I am not sure the clarity or the way the image fits in my orb is that great as a result but the image is still better than before due to now lined up better with my eye line but the image is a bit blurry and may be stretched too far to the edges. I am not complain because it's still much better than the stock set up, I am just pointing out that at least my pin (might be the angle the TV sits on the metal bend so that it's actually impossible to get the flat part very close th the TV.

Overall very impressive but just pointing out that there pins are all built to slightly different tolerances.

Thanks

Mine fell right into place. Did you follow the directions or wing it?

#3720 6 months ago

Hey Rai,
PM me some pictures if you can, and I'll get it sorted out. I know the tolerances were a bit tight, so I opened them up on this second batch. I'm more than happy to swap yours out and get the problem solved.

And I am officially done sending out PM's to everyone on the Crystal Ball list. So if you haven't received a message from me, just let me know. Pinside mail can sometimes get confusing. Thank you!

If it has your signature on the bottom we don’t need to see it! Every time I go into the arcade with my granddaughter she now makes me play WOZ just to see the monkey fly. Lol

Installed my Crystal Ball mod today, just need a Witch 2.0 mod to complete the Gouveia trifecta! Install was easy, using an adjustable wrench as Steve suggests popped the black base off without too much trouble, and acetone cleaned up the glue without damaging the ball. Thanks Steve!

Without having read every post as I’m sure it has been covered. What glue is best for this?

If we have the first witch mod, what is the story on the second? Another run of the same? Or an update? Hoping if it’s an update that there may be a cheaper option for those with the first...

I used glue from a hot glue gun for my crystal ball mod.

Witch 2.0 has yet to be revealed. Supposed to be an improvement on Witch 1.0.

I LOL’d. I don’t know why the image rotated, it was correct on my phone!

FWIW, I used 5 min epoxy and it did the job. I’m sure hot glue would work, a little more removable that way.

I would like to know what this witch is all about.

#3740 5 months ago

Is Witch 2.0 just another run to meet demand, or are there further refinements included? Honestly I love my Witch mod, hard to see how it can be bettered.

Cheers!

Got my Crystal Ball mod last week (on my birthday! Thanks Steve). Had to wait until the weekend to install. Here’s where it gets crazy. So I got the ball off the old mount with the twist method, it was on there really good, when it finally came loose it took a chunk of the ball with it. Turns out the new mount covers it and it can’t be seen, avoided disaster there. Next, I was screwing on the screen and my screw driver rubbed on the PCB, I heard a crunch. Yep, sheered off the inductor. Searched for the manufacturer of the screen and luckily they publish their schematics. It was a 4.7 uH inductor; good news, I have those in my electronics inventory. Soldered on a new one, tested, it works, avoided disaster again. Sanded out some scuffs on the ball with some 5000 grit and polished it up using some car polish, looks perfect. Install in the pin and it looks great. Well, that’s my install story anyway.
