  1. Been a bit busy but I have completed the suitcase power supply. You probably wouldn't want a kick from these! Ha ha. Replacing the four diodes on top: All sorted! Now for the linear supply 🤙
  2. Cheers @Arcade King Couple of options @Potostew42 : add some kerf cuts to the back of the timber. This will allow you to bend it to shape and veneer it. You can fill the kerfing with resin/glue. It'll be strong as! next option (as probably easy) would be to make it double thickness and add the bevel with a roundover bit using a router. This is how many control panels on USA machines are made ie Robotron etc. Because your internal corner can be straight you can add a blocking strip to the inside for extra strength. Use a good quality glue such as Titebond II. Hope this helps 🤙
  3. No, no. if there is one thing straya thrives on, that is a good drama. You could literally make a spin off of Coronation St just about the straya Pinball scene alone 🤣
  4. I was going to put it in the dish washer but man I don't want any headaches when it rusts or something😂 Re the battery...
  5. Been cleaning up all the electrical stuff the last couple of days. I made a new base for the transformers, fuses, suitcase etc. Cleaned and painted the transformers and it is now in the cabinet. I am waiting on my package so I can rebuild the suitcase and power supply. I fitted the brackets and stuff in the meantime. There are three looms in this machine, one for the AC, one for the game PCB (pictured below) and one for the speakers. And they were all disgusting! Ha ha. I ended up unpicking, cleaning and new cable ties to get them looking like new. Well worth it. In my pics ,and all the others I have seen, they just put the negative or the positive connections for the speakers at the front. I guess it depended on who was on the day? So that meant one of the speakers was out of phase. Both the terminals are the same size and there are no coloured dots. I did notice those two little holes which prob mean something. A quick with a battery confirmed that was the positive terminal. Easy way to check it use a 9v battery and run some wires to the speaker leaving one not connected. The tap the wire on the battery. If the cone moves inwards you are out of phase. If the cone moves outwards you have it connected correctly. Both speakers back in and the earth soldered back on from the AC loom. That's a big mission done!
  6. Nothing will be replaced. It's all staying original 👌
  7. Boards and power supply parts have been shipped ex USA. I'll still continue on with this in the meantime. Still plenty to do! Cleaning, reassembly and.... sorting that wiring! Ack. What a blimmin' mess! Ha ha
  8. Cheers! BlackBerry gin.
