    @randr Absolutely does not work that way. I played a game with the glass off ball in hand. Holes 1,2,&3 definitely do not trigger 8,9,&10. Sorry no cheating here…

    AL

    Unless you play with the glass off ball in hand (I made a wicked high score) B-)

    Well I just fried every bulb in the machine by putting 24v to them! Omg! The switching supply I got for this project is 5v, 24v and 12v so very nice actually but I’m an idiot! I read the pins wrong on the supply!!!! Whole basement smells liked 10 cooked leds.

    making progress now anyways  :wacko:

    That just makes the rest of us feel better knowing that the experienced guys do it too.

    Are those two COM electrically tied together or are they actually a separate circuit? That’s a handy supply for a pincab i would think…

    Coms are tied together commons. It’s a very nice switching supply for sure! Anyways look what it did to my bulbs! Blew the tops off every one!

    Ok guys I got a huge update tonight!

    first let me say how sorry I am for being so busy with this project the last few months. Totally consumed nearly all my time and I’m still not finished with it but…. I have one working ice cold beer! Sorta!

    Here is a video explaining the stuff up to this point.

    Awesome stuff….awesome video! Its nice to be able to watch someone else’s video for a change!

    We have an ICB at our local arcade here…but its always broken. :(

    Are you able to get one of the aftermarket sticks to work somehow? I know most aren’t leaf switch sticks….but would it be possible to make something work?

    Maybe Todd has some?

    Well true I suppose I could mod any 2 way joystick and add leaf switches but plastic joysticks are my last resort since I already purchased 6 joystick rebuild assemblies that are all metal. Leaf switches are a must have though for sure!

    im actually thinking this is a good reason to finally get a metal lathe :) then I could just make them! Always wanted one anyways lol

    I took the hole thing apart and brought stripped playfield down to back garage and cnc’ed the little bit I needed to center up the display. A bit crooked but it will work

    Well looky here! I just remembered I had this buried in the cellar. When you said Defender it rang a bell..

    It has allot of play and is well used. But if you just need the ball and shaft I think it’s OK. I think the wear is in the block it mounts into.

    If you want it Ill ship it to you free.. :good:
