Sparky, I was interested in doing this too. Is there a thread within these walls where you have shared your process?

Re: Looking to Clear Coat one of my old Stern Games

Are you talking about clearing a playfield that is already stripped Craig? This needs to be done first (obviously). I know a few people in the forums have attempted to do this on their own using the Spray 2K method but if you are looking to hire someone to do it Toronto might be a better market to a...

Re: What would be your retheme?

I would do a Harry Potter pin. So many ideas. Quidditch Multiball, Find The Snitch mode, Death Eater Multiball. Endless possibilities.

If Beck Heck ever gets his mini-pinball project onto shelves I plan to buy two. One is getting a Ninjago retheme for my son, and the other will get Rapunzel.

Holy shit! I got 39! I gave myself 4 points for being in the newspaper multiple times for pinball related stuff and in an article by a Carleton U student (TV/Book question).

I didn't like the light bleeding out but not enough to reverse the mod. I ended up using some black felt to block the light.

I had a similar type problem with my Judge Dredd. I found out by fluke that it was something shorted to the ground.

Re: A Tech In Training. Fifty Repair #? ~ F8 Keeps Blowin' Stern Spider-man

I tested Sandman VUK coil. 3.9 ohms. Good. Visually the coil is also fine. I disconnected the switch that fires this coil just to rule out a bad switch and turned on the pin again. F8 started to glow. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to turn off the game so there goes another 3A S.B. fuse... I ne...
