  • Moving pinball tip

    Pushing machine backward causes the back legs to vibrate shaking the crap out of the machine.
    After sliding this game in and out 20 times trying to fix faults I decided to try some standard size pool cues to brace the back legs.
    Perfect fit, the bump rubber on the cue just squeezes in.
    Smooth sliding, the sticks are already in the room might as well use them.
    I know you guys think I am a top bloke

    Crawl under the pinball, arch the back up to take the weight off the legs and move forward on all fours. That is exactly as I did to locate pinballs beside other pinballs on site.

    You can also adjust the leg adjusters using this method.

    I do like your ingenuity though, brilliant.

          The turtle combined with these furniture sliders works great for me.

                Orthopaedic Surgeons like people using the turtle method as well. Back surgery costs $36k metal hardware + $12k hospital stay and doc wages. Pinball trolley $300 approx. Your call now.

                          This is spot on. If your using your back at all, your doing something wrong.

                            Yep. Does with Tassie Oak too!

                            I have been looking for alternative pneumatic wheels, but nothing suitable as yet.

                            Until then, I put down 12mm MDF sheets and roll the trolley on them. It's a bit of a pain, but no wheel tracks in the floor!

                              It's the getting my chunky butt down to ground level and under the pin part that messes my back up, once down there the "turtle lift" is a breeze
