Hey, Bond owner -- are you finding white shavings in your right orbit? White shavings in the right orbit are indicative of your jetpack up-post pin rubbing against the edge of the metal as it rises up through the ramp. This pin is very long and has no significant lateral support aside from the coil sleeve and has a LOT of slop in where it comes to rest, allow it to scrape the metal as it rises, "shaving" it and dropping the shavings down into the orbit below.
With Rocket City Pinball's Jetpack Pin Alignment Corrector, the pin will be more closely aligned with the hole to eliminate/minimize contact against the metal edge, preventing shaving/damaging the pin surface. The Jetpack Pin Alignment Corrector mounts at an OEM screw location on the outside of the ramp. It is 3D printed in yellow (to match the color scheme of the Dr. No area in that corner) and includes a gold screw, washer, and lock washer (which replace the original).
** Notes on delayed pin deployment ** Before I developed the Alignment Corrector, many Bond owners (myself included) recently noticed problems with the jetpack pin not popping up fast enough (when shooting the left orbit for Jetpack Multiball). This began after code v0.92 dropped, but this may be coincidence -- as I found my pin's surface had enough damage from getting shaved, that it may have been 'catching' on the metal, momentarily sticking or dragging and thereby delaying its deployment. (Such delay can cause great frustration for players, particularly when shooting for a Jetpack Super Jackpot on Prem/LE -- without the ball captured, Bond on a Wand can't pick it up, and you're forced to shoot the left orbit again and again until the pin finally pops up soon enough to stop the ball.) After code 0.92 and before I installed the Alignment Corrector, my pin was late almost every single time. After the Alignment Corrector, it deployed consistently and instantaneously ALMOST every time. There were still rare instances of late deployments despite the ball rolling over the left orbit switch (which should trigger the pin deployment when qualified). So with regard to late pin deployment, my game saw significant improvement with the Alignment Corrector but not 100%. Your results may vary here -- though the Alignment Corrector does fulfill its original design intent of preventing the shavings.
Installation is very easy and should only take 10-15 minutes. The only tools you need are a 1/4" nut driver, phillips-head screwdriver, and a ~24" prop (e.g., 2x4) or an assistant to lift back end of playfield clear of side rails.
Here's the video explaining the issue and demonstrating the installation process:
