A lazy build day

Filed under: Pinball — Thalamus @ 20:44

Today I was tired and had me a long afternoon sleep. So, I only adjusted the monitor and put up the side graphics. Tomorrow, if the weather is fine I will probably not touch this project. BBQ at a friends place sounds like a better way to spend the friday afternoon.

Hope to continue on the cab on Saturday.

Backglass almost finished … or ?

Filed under: Pinball — Thalamus @ 08:37

So, I’ve spent quite a lot of time on the back-glass. This is the current result. I’m not 100% happy with it yet. The monitor is a bit crooked, but, that should be a easy fix. Just was too tired after struggling with things I simply hadn’t planned for.

I’m beginning to wonder if this needs to be re-done in another way. I’ve used magnets to hold the front panel in place. Will the sound and vibrations from the speakers affect how these are holding up ? Is the DMD too near the speakers ? I guess I’ll have to run some tests.

If I’m pleased with it, then I guess it is time to add some graphics to the sides.

Updated status on my Pincab

Filed under: Pinball — Thalamus @ 23:12

So, I’ve made some progress. Not much to say really. I’m still thinking about how to attach the backglass apron. At the moment, magnets seems like a good idea. Time will tell I guess.

So … back to start ?

Filed under: Pinball — Thalamus @ 10:20

Used this morning to tear down my cab to the bone. It is finally time to start the final build. Last time, it was winter and I really didn’t have all the parts. Now, I believe at least to have all the parts needed and ready. So … current status pic.

Current status.
