Had a better look and yes it must of come under tension ..
The aluminium strip I used has some clearance..
The wood expands and contacts and is not perfectly level..


Will change the way they are hung up ,
Will put a rubber post between the aluminium and the wood so it has a buffer..
To expand and contract...

Thanks heaps for the post mate as it made me look at it again ..

I was asked to bring my Japanese machines to the Japan Festival at Carleton U yesterday.
It was a great time. Machines were very popular and the performances were amazing.

Also started attaching new shelves in the back room, redoing some wires, and hung a few more marquees.

Initiating the new gen into "pinball life" tonight and regularly.
Much as Robert has done at the North Star in Montreal for years...
The process has begun at The Pint in Toronto. Hogtown is catching up, slowly.
More soon enough and as energy and time allows to bring the next gen up to speed in our world.

Finished Beat The Clock today...except for the pop bumpers on order. Definitely a different game to play, good one to have mixed in with others.

I spent more time redoing the backroom shelves. I increased the density of our pantry shelving, all part of the longterm organization effort which is allowing me to expand the basement arcade in various ways. I was always severely limited in how many pins I could fit in there, but now I have expanded heavily into smaller vertical machines, and have 2 new things arriving shortly...

I finally (after 4 years) managed to mount my Space Invaders backbox on the wall in the basement and get it somewhat lit up. I didn't have the best choice of LEDs on hand but simply made use of what I had. The low-light picture doesn't do it justice. It will look great with the correct lighting and once I get around to wiring in some of the chase lights - which might take another 4 years. I still think it is the greatest back-box ever made.

I finally got Arnold's crane and tar pit to work fully for the first time.
I also learned you cannot remove turns from a Gottlieb flipper coil because the big wire is buried deep underneath the thin wire. All I could achieve was 1 less turn.

Last night after my run in Lindsay, went over to my customer and friend Phil to watch the Leafs game and work on a Gottlieb Pinball Pool.
Then played some serious AC/DC.

Well, nothing today as I am in Rimouski again, but I did recap another Bally Squawk & Talk on Monday. Worked great after. I have created my own pre-order kit at Digikey for these. It has come in quite handy.

I am considering doing the same for all other boards I have. With 11 Bally lamp drivers laying around, it is about time I refurbish them and get the LED adaptors for them. Can't hurt. ame for all the solenoid driver boards and MPUs. Worth a shot.

I seem to be in some dumb fight on pinside because CPR substituted blue for green in their run of Meteor backglasses. Oh, and I met the mayor of Ottawa this morning. Still probably won't vote for him again, but I met him.
