So how long before it plays again?
« on: January 09, 2018, 09:23:31 PM »
Learned my lesson on my FH where I did the playfield and cabinet at the same time  :P This time I am doing just the playfield now, going to put it back in the cabinet and get it dialed in and then at a future date restore the cabinet. Just got to the point where I had to break out the rivet press to add all the flasher domes, lights to the plastics/ramp. Going purple with this, all purple star post, flipper rubbers, bumper caps and a few other things. New playfield, plastics, ramp, etc.

I wish :)

Have a 8 and 12 year old and all of the associated activities that go along with them :P Also this is a Illinois Pinball (IPB) playfield that I got in 2010. Contacted Cliffy for a full set of protectors and he indicated there were some minor differences with the IPB playfields (thicker, etc.) so I am CADing up the measurments and he is going to make a set of protectors specifically for my game. Will be about 4 weeks after he gets the files.

if it's a keeper, there's no rush. I just picked up a dead pinball, that will stay in the family. don't think I'm even going to start working on it for 6+ months.


p.s. - cliff is awesome.

Well I've had it since 2000 so might as well keep it a bit longer  ;D

Yea Cliff is the man, I helped him dial in his TFTC protector almost a decade ago and he still remembered and thanked me again, great communication and he's a real down to earth guy.
