Some interesting fun things happened this past weekend, and I discuss a few standout games I played at the Pinball Hall of Fame and Flipperspiel Underground.

 

I also thought it wise to cover a game again!  Today's game is Baker Big Time.  This game has 8 different ways to win, multiple sequences, and a neat playfield design that reminds me of the horse race games.

You can win up to 60 replays on this game!

I dislike the construction of Williams solid state drop targets - I give some reasons why and discuss the mechanical problems of a steel ball hitting plastic affixed to metal with more plastic...

I also discuss a short circuit troubleshooting session from a recent repair.  Lack of heat shrink in my travel toolbox caused me to improvise.

I picked up a Chicago Coin 'Thing' and have been removing the multiple coats of white latex paint from the cabinet - I give a breakdown of some techniques used to remove on this cabinet in particular.

Lastly, there is a person from TX (Nicovolta) that is traveling across the US, teaching EM repair in home - very intriguing idea and I wish him all the best.
