    Here is the manual if you need it.

    http://www.progettosnaps.net/manuals/pdf/icefever.pdf

    You could use the blueprint on page 47 to line things up too.

    1. I Tried the best I could with what I had.  The 2 is the only thing noticeably different.  If you can get it closer, I sent you a pf with no numbers and inserts updated. It looks a lot different here because the old numbers were so blurry.  On the table I think it looks very close, except the 2.  My thought is clear close font better than original and blurry

    I agree with BorgDog and I’d like to offer my help for the font thing. Not that I am a total expert, but I am some kind of font pedant and I usually get my teeth into that font thing until I find something 99,99999999999999% matching :)

    For fathom I even bought a font, because there was nothing free available…

    … and then if there is nothing that you can even buy that is a close enough match then you are modifying fonts in FontForge.

    I touched up a little text on the playfield with the limited time I had to spend on it. Arial black bold was a close match if you add an outer stroke and then make a few detail tweaks. Not sure about the numbers but hopefully it will be that easy.

    I did quite a few font and insert touchups this afternoon.  different varitions of Futura was pretty good for most of it, the 1,2,3,4 on the inserts I got close match then did manual touchups to them to match the originals.  sending table back to Tom in just a minute.

    anybody seen primitives for these guys?  they support the large top rail on Ice fever and other Gottlieb games.  my usual sources have come up dry.

    i have some in one of my machines so may end up having to make them  :unsure:

    this is the mid rail support, kinda under the top arch area

    support

    these to go together to hold the looped end of the rail

    base    cap

    Was watching the TNT Ice Fever video today trying to figure out a few things like the top lights and the replay light is actually purple.  I also didn’t play it with the backglass much and didn’t realize that there is a moving “puck” in the backglass.  what a cool addition great job Wildman.  If you watch the TNT video, again big fan of his work atleast the creative side, he is building one for Pete Rose!  The score displays are two different colors, one set blue one green.  I kinda like it even if its not stock, any thoughts?

    made the easy one, hard to see in clear so I put in white for the image.. oh and a tad bigger :)

    Untitled-1

    cool thing about this one is the hole inside is off center so you can turn it and it acts like a cam to push against the rail.. oh dang, I forgot the inner sleeve for the screw

    This one is actually two pieces but I made it as one, bit more complicated. turned out ok for something most people will never even see.

    Man, you guys really are perfectionists.  :good:

    Can you recommend a good font identifier site?
