Re: Stern insider connect - thoughts

Seems like a neat enough idea to me, and pretty inevitable. Being able to export audits remotely would be really cool. I always mean to track my audits over time but never go to the trouble of recording them (at least not consistently). I think the next step for games is to allow you to progress ove...

Re: Plasma effect Williams DMD - weird transformer jumper wiring

Yeah, same issue with another DMD and another ribbon cable. The input to the DMD board (a replacement rottendog) is higher than it's supposed to be, but I'm not sure how much higher would cause this sort of an issue. I found a link that suggests some markets were wired for 220v instead of the 230v s...

Plasma effect Williams DMD - weird transformer jumper wiring

So my Wh20 has a garbled and cloudy DMD. The voltages were a little high at the DMD, so I checked the input voltage to the DMD driver board at J605. I got 98.5vac and 124vac there, so a decent amount higher than the intended 80 and 120vac. Per pinwiki, I checked the jumpers at the transformer. Here'...

Re: found 1948 Wisconsin pinball.

I'll echo what Eric said, don't use grease. It's used only in really rare exceptions in the hobby (certain heavy mechs). Replace the coils as needed, and the metal coil sleeves with plastic and you should be good.

Fathom remake?

Apparently Haggis is remaking Fathom?

Who's Haggis?

Any idea on pricing?

I'm a little out of the loop.

Re: FS/FT: Iron Man Vault

I lean toward fast punishing games, so I really like IM. It's one of the "one ball" games like Tron and Avatar, where a single turn can make or break you. Simple rules, but stacking everything is a big challenge. A kickback, magnet, bash toy, and yet crossing the ramps makes for some satis...

FS: Oculus Rift CV1 VR headset with 3 sensors and touch controllers - $180

Comes with 3 sensors, touch controllers, and a VR cover face plate (as well as the original). One of the sensors is missing a stand, I'll include a compatible wall mount to replace it.

Re: Pinside site is down.

What's funny about pinside is I mostly only frequent the threads not at all related to pinball.

I do feel pretty out of the pinball loop these days. Are we still arguing about dimpling?

One-handed strippers

Does anyone have a recommendation on a specific one-handed automatic wire stripper? I was going to grab one, but they're worryingly cheaper in price than I remember.
