    Hi, I love my cab, and the way it is evolving, but I’m just about to give it a birthday of sorts, I have a DMD to install and while I have the backboard apart, I thought I should replace the knocker that burnt out ( thanks to one of those table roms that knocks on every coin when I’m not in the house and a 5 year old who decides to hold the 5 key pressed on the external keyboard ! ), as well as upgrade the tilt bob to a real one, and tidy up some wiring that is currently a ball of yarn ..

    My question is .. what to use, and where to get something decent that is happy on 24/30v ? is there anything or should I just get an another power supply at 50v and use whatever I can find online ? I run it off a pacled via a relay so I can basically hook anything up that I need but don’t really know where to start. I think the one I was using might have been a flipper coil as it wasn’t really awesome right from the start.

    Does anyone have some numbers for me to start looking for please.

    Cheers,

    al.

    I use one of these, although an old one, from a Gottlieb that originally ran on 24V DC, works great.  Can be found cheaper used, or maybe at other vendors.

    edit: a quick search found this one on ebay for much less https://www.ebay.com/itm/GOTTLIEBS-PIONEER-EM-PINBALL-MACHINE-CABINET-KNOCKER-ASSY/372235957291?hash=item56aafdf42b:g:JXEAAOSw8SNakNO9

    Thanks BD I’ll start from there !

    Cheers,

    Edit : Indeed, I just ordered the one from Marco as it’s easier than trying to decipher second hand codes here in Oz !

    Thanks again.

    Thanks randr .. once I muck this one up, I can hopefully just replace coils without having a burnt/melted mass :) and I’ll check them out as an alternative.

    Cheers,

    al.
