    Amazing Craftsperson would be more correct Randr, get with the times!

     

    Seriously Gwen, superb work.  Frankly I’m jealous (in a good way) of your skills!  I’m retiring in about two years and I’ve got all kinds of ideas for the cabs that will lead me to maybe taking a woodworking course and electrical engineering (or whatever it’s called) so I can stop relying on others! LOL. Really nicely done, I love the speaker mesh

    Thanks so much for your kind words.  In my entire life if there is one thing I have learned it is that I am a maker.  I am just not happy if I am not creating something.  I am by no means an expert at everything I do but I try not to let that stop me.  You should see some of the other things I have built =)  I am a private pilot and ten years ago I scratch built my own replica Fokker DVIII WWI fighter plane and test flew it.  There are too many interesting things in the universe for me to do to ever allow me to be bored.  I love pinball and when I realized I could build my own virtual pinball cabinet I jumped all over it.  I am definitely enjoying the experience as well as the new people I have met along the way!

    Yeah Gwen, I love flying, that is something else on my bucket list when I retire, to get my own pilot’s license which I can then use to fly down to Randr’s place more often so I can put my initials on all his pins!   It’s good to plan ahead, no?

     

    Seriously would love it if you shared some of those pics!

    Yeah I still have it.  Right now it is in storage in California after I moved up to Washington.  I need to go down and get it and bring it up here.

    I decided I wanted to use a real tilt bob in my cabinet for completely realistic tilt behavior.  After looking at the ones for sale online I decided I could save myself $20 and the wait by just building my own from stuff I have lying around.  I cut some scrap pieces of wood, brass rod, and aluminum, and cut down an old plumb bob which I drilled and tapped for a thumbscrew, and I made this (It’s nothing fancy but it should work just as well as any tilt bob I can buy.  And it’s adjustable =)) :

    Update: I just finished installing this in my cabinet and adjusting it.  It works perfectly.  Pretty cool I think =)

    Very nice. I’m one of those guys that swear that a vpin without a real tilt bob is just half the fun of what it could be. Looks just as good as any manufactured !

    My partner gave me this Tesla brass challenge coin as a gift.  I inlaid it into the left side of the lockdown bar on my cabinet.  I think Nemo will like this a lot since it has the pidgeons on it too  :yes:
