You're not the only one that cares, but, probably the only one iinvloved with the game.
How do you like the other games up to here?
Do you think they will stand up the test of time?

Re: Better alternative for removing RUST

It's not fear, it's respect. Not all chemicals are the same. That's why we have safety data sheets. When you know what's in a product you can take precautions. This product, you don't know what's in it, and more importantly, the vendor is refusing to tell you. I work in construction, and this attit...

Re: Where to buy Chrome Balls (Ninja style)

Exact correct weight and size, yes.
Chrome has a much smoother surface, so, better for the playfield for sure.
They say you can't use them in a game that has magnets, but I've been using them in TZ for 2 years now and have'nt had any problems yet.

Since we don't know what acid is used in the formula; have you seen any etching effects on aluminum, brass, chrome, stainless, steel...? Nope, reason is simple, it's not an acid, it reacts with ferrous metals only, does'nt do anything with other metals, so, chrome, stainless steel= works great but ...

No, I messaged the guy and never got an answer from him.

It won't go through gloves if it's only a few seconds...

Hi everyone. I used Evapo-rust for over 10 years for removing rust from metal parts on pins and mopeds but now I found something that works better than Evaporust and is cheaper as well. The best price I found for Evaporust, which, by the way is no longer available in the province of Quebec for now ...

No interrest what so ever, so, I changed my mind, I'm still having lots of fun working on it, restoring it and upgrading it even if I've been doing exactly that for the past 2 years that I've owned it, so I decided to keep it for now.

The game started acting up again about the magnet optos just like it did before, I removed the SW10 P.C.B. board and reflowed the solder joints at each end of those giant green transistors and played a few hours with TZ and no more problems.
In other words, the real problem was this.......
