Yes a file or a dremmel should work
Or good side cutters
Just be super careful
I'll be as careful as I can be skill shot doesn't work anyway lol.
Borrowing a pair of tin cutters tonight, will attempt to shorten the leaf switch just a bit and see if that works.. all of this for a 100,000 point skill shot..
hopefully that works .
Good luck! Its worth it!
did you fix it ?
Nope.. Infact I only compounded the problem by breaking the gate arm off. Machine needs a really good tune up.
And a new swing gate.. do you know of a place that would do something like fix switches, complete tune up and replace gates which wouldn't be too expensive?
you around sunday evening ? let me come down and have a look
Thank you. I should be around on Sunday evening about 7:30 or 8:30 if that works for you?
yes . I sent you a pm
You could see this coming from a mile away...
You can bend yourself a new gate from piano wire. If you can't source wire locally, the Pinball Resource carries lengths of it. To bend, you can use pliers, or buy yourself a Du-Bro EZ Bender.
I found piano wire on ebay quite inexpensive, but i'm not sure the mm thickness of the original gate. I also order a Bally gate from the machine "Game Show" as it looks like it may do the job. I am not too concerned with how the gate looks just as long as it functions.
This product is fantastic! I recommend it as well. It's well made, not expensive, and you can bend wire very precisely.
Wow that is cool. I may grab one!
