  • Medieval Madness sticky porticullis (gate)

    Problem--Porticullis (Gate) not moving up and down freely, occasionally sticking half open and preventing ball from entering castle.

    Visual Inspection--No sign of physical interference, everything tight and adjusted as it should be.

    Action--Dismantle armature and inspect. Far more sticky than it should be, but looks clean and gunk free??
    On closer inspection the armature is in two pieces with a male-female fitting held together by a pin (internally).
    The pin had started to work loose and was catching on the INSIDE of the coil sleeve.

    Repair--Punch the little sucker back in nice and tight and rejoice in the newly freed-up armature and a fully functional porticullis!!
