That little box is Jack the cat's litter tray.

Bogart, the stripy one, is a great cat. He follows you around, goes into the workshop/ the car/ the garden/ sits on the desk when you are working - he likes to be in on the action. He is very friendly. He says hello to guests. Impeccably clean. He uses a catflap and goes to the toilet outside, even in heavy rain.

We have a second, useless, cat called Jack. He is the sort of cat that gives the entire species a bad name. He hates everyone and everything other than food. He is too stupid to enter the house using the cat flap. He just gorges himself on food and sleeps on the boiler. Touch him and he will likely attack you. He could have been in any of the Omen trilogy films. He just decided to routinely p1ss on the carpet. So we put that litter tray on his chosen spot.

well here is my first NIB.





oooh that doesn’t bode well. didn’t see this on the box until mr miserable fcuuuuker delivery man had left!!!!!

can’t recommend them, Hadley’s . stick to Martin




that was a tough heave up onto the lifter


it’s a good job i lifted the playfield and checked behind. huge piece of poly foam. it wasn’t obvious on the instructions to do this. in fact it wasn’t mentioned.
anyhow. it’s up and running. a few teething issues. the rear VUK switch (opto) is a bit hit n miss. hard to get to and hard to test until pf back down.

anyhow. don’t expect any more updates. i e got my first NIB pinball to play........

It arrived last week however it is in its proper place and mostly set up...my digital pinball table. I hope the image formats ok I am on my phone and not sure what I am doing.
Am very happy with it however it has no nudge sensors and the plunger does nothing so I have some projects for the future.
It does have a row of real LEDs at the back however and ... 5 I think real solenoids in there which makes it feel much more authentic

Don't think it was your old one Ronnie, he said he owned it for years and he had it in a bowling ally
Fairly sure it is Mike, the guy had some sort of place he put it in could have been a bowling alley and for sure more than 8 years ago. looking on the reverse of the backglass to see if it's touched up and triple thicked?
