*Minipin, a smaller way to pinball* Project

Recommended Posts

Looks great...are they the legs your sticking with

I will stick with these legs.... it is meant to be a tabletop pin so those work perfect and they're even adjustable.

Got my mercury switches today.... Installed 3 and they work pretty darn good. I will need to fiddle with them to get the angle right but for the most part they work as planned.

The legs came off of an old cabinet(8+ years ago).... here is a pic of what one looks like. They are nice because with a simple twist they can adjust in length. Unfortunately I don't have a part number....

The mercury switches allow someone with little to no room in their cabinet to add the ability to nudge. Once the mercury shifts to the other side it completes the circuit and if hooked up to an ipac can send a keypress.

Wow, that came out so good! Every time I see these pinball builds I want to get mine started. then I come to the realization that I need to buy a playfield. Soon.. very soon. Maybe sooner with all these great builds I keep seeing!
