Keith.
Some ptfe lube for juicing up spinners...works great. A tiny drop makes a huge difference to how long a spinner will spin. Seems like cheating :)

Kev. This is only a cheap imitation of the original "spinner juice"....t.m.
1). Check for plastic spacers BOTH sides of your spinner switch actuator. (Very important to keep this at 90degrees.) No lean.
2). Tighten spinners metal frame to the posts.
3). Check with a mini spirit level that the frame is level..adjust where necessary.
4). "Juice"....and watch that baby spin!....nothing more satisfying in pinball than a "juiced spinner!"....

Peace...Keef.......😎

I've received NGG Backglass that I've manufactured :) I am proud of this one, because it is extremely hard to scan glass due to a non variable focal length of the scanners.20200317_153909.jpg

But wait, there's more... I've also picked up BSD backglass I've made... This one I am proud of because I was able to achieve the black mask effect by not actually using black mask, but by printing the black color multiple times. The contrasts are outstanding. On one of the pictures in the upper part of the glass you can see part of my pinball collection reflected. Don't mind the cleaning products... Yeah, I've made those too. I like creating labels and mix stuff too. The cleaning products are not for sale... I wouldn't be so sure about Dracula :cool:

There’s lots of stock stuff but I do like the fact lois is being risk’e and I’ve struggled to find a decent hires image of her like that.
things I like are death in the background with his Sythe kinda adding a 3D effect by it popping out of the screen as do a few of the characters especially the evil monkey.
I will try to find some resources suitable do you want me to edit them or pass the assets onto you.

We can both work on this and then decide which one is better. I think I'd like to work on that Translite. I love the series and I might buy that pin if I make a Backglass for it. My idea would be to do black mask behind the TV and only illuminate the title and the characters. I do like the fact that they come out of the telly.

Whatever you need just LMK. I think I’m all honesty it will be a cracking seller as the original backglass is so drab.
just pm me if you need anything
