So I discovered the "Recent posts" button and found this thread.  Someday I'll understand how to use all of a forum and not just 3 pages inside of it. 
That said - love this thread!  I've only seen some bits and pieces of your work - but not a full project yet.

I'd love the challenge of a pinball restoration ..
If I ever happen across one... I'll have to make room someplace..

THX guys (blush) This machine found me and needed Jens love, as a project I could have/should have documented something less painful to watch and less intense...But happy you like it.

The light board gave me issue in the night and did manage 6 coats of white primer (sanding after 3) but still needs work so that's the goal for today...It is a new product (to me) and is a low VOC and a bit concerned with the toxic high temp topcoat we are going to use lifting it...we shall see.

And sandblast some parts... I believe they were powder coated but the fire scorched and baked them so it is hard to tell, the steel isn't warped however, so We will just finish them with industrial black (using a epoxy sealer as a base).

Sandblasting...I have multiple blasters, but in the interest of budget we will review this one from (cough,cough) Hf, it was 20.00us and didn't work out of the box...I ran a 1/4 inch bit down through the carb and cleaned out the feed tube from hopper, aparently the front hopper set screw crushes the feed tube and blocks it off, it works good now but the hopper is really small and only good for small parts...A upgrade for you tool lovers would be the handi/speed blaster for around 60.00us the are awesome and last forever, with a bigger hopper.

how long does the hazardfraught run with a full hopper? i was thinking of getting a very very similar one here in Canada that looks to be the same size, shape, etc...probably made by the same company...

This one gets about 30 seconds, But it is bored out a bit to the 1/4 inch for more sand, Out of the box that carb didn't line up worth squat and was barley getting any media and that bit made all the difference...They make a horrible mess but worth every penny.

That light board is close now, And is starting to feel more like plastic than the oak it is made of however it still has some issues and will be the primary focus for today.

You would think that would be easy right?... The math on that was beyond what I can normally do in my head, (remember there are no build sheets or notes on this) But rather physics common sense and a whole lot of head math . physically this was done with a router and a 1 1/8" chamfer bit, The angle of the cut, at the right depth has to be compensated for a bearing smaller than the hole...I imagine you guys and your CAD drawings for saw that coming....But for Jenn it beat me, and had to rely on trial and error.

Speaking of math, that brings us to today's issue...The little block down by the lower hinge, Malenco said it was 1 1/8 deep yet mine came out to be 3/4...and after much thought on the subject concludes that block was changed from machine to machine to be effective...apparently my light board is 3/8" closer to the back glass than his...So today we again work on finishing this pesky lightboard.

looks like plastic....made from wood instead of plastic.  :laugh2:

I kid, I kid.... it looks great! 10,000X better than from the factory I can tell you that much. whoever ends up with this machine is going to have a real special piece of art they will be proud to have.

I wont lie, painting milled oak like that did not come without challenges, And would imagine you are thinking of such a finish on that cocktail pac.... The primer was white (low VOC) that converted into a sealer with the addition of clear, and was primed multiple times (The holes were lightly sanded between coats on a spindle) and finally sealed on the faces, The paint was an industrial acrylic enamel and by its very name plastic (acrylic) and is a very durable finish.. At the gun we turned the fan down to a pinpoint And fluid down quite a bit, and with the air still pretty high for atomization blew paint through the holes from the backside... This caused runs around the holes  (that was expected)and wiped it off with a thinner rag, cotton/toluene...and let dry... lightly sanded the back and painted it out like normal... Although I did get get a run on it and had a couple weird issues on the back (mostly weather and humidity related) So had to quick dry sand again and topcoat for the optimal finish.

After the talk is all done, this is what we are left with...As a recap six different shades of black on black all the way down to the wood, done with 3 kinds of paint, 2 different kinds of ink, and some dye all working together as one shade of black ...Rather than just blast clear everywhere (for you new builders) it was done in sections, and if you look close at the back around the edge was left unfilled on purpose using the cabinet structure (rabbits, giggle) as part of the overall beautiful structure of the original design...Most of the time when you see a build like this that is filled flat to hide shoddy workmanship I suppose...Anyway IT'S DONE GUYS!, Off to the assembly bench for harware and wire.

Thx guys, Perhaps this thread is a bit too intense for some viewers cause I think everyone left except you two...I know this is painful to watch, sooooo very slow, followed up by talk, talk, talk...I get it really I do, and will try to be a bit more fun going forward.

You do know your stuff Jenn will give you that , Few would even know what it is they are looking at, or how it was done , It came out so much nicer than that pic shows, done with 5000 watts of soul blistering power...In hindsight a subject a bit beyond the scope of this thread (sorry for the edit) :(

I did silk screening at some point (school printing class 150 years ago)
I have no idea how it is done today - especially with letters.  We screened stuff we cut with an exacto knife..

So if you were to provide a peek at the process.. I would not be opposed  :)

Well lets keep it DIY anyway...It hasn't changed much over the years with 3 notable exeptions, #1 the editing software and scanners are incredible as compared to yesterday and as you might remember that is to make the inkjet blackouts (this can be done in sets of 2 and overlaid for a darker black), #2 The lights today are LED as pretty much industry standard, however I am still skeptical of multi point undercutting, and still use a Olec single bulb metal halide, Do you need 5000Watts? No, it just burns them faster, 1000 watts (or the sun on a hot day) will do the same thing on a hot day just takes longer (probibally more like 8min as compared to 3 sec. and #3 the emulsions have gotten better and quite forgiving, although I prefer to use Rinotech when I can (depends what your working on) for low/one off runs it simplifies things... There are some homemade DIY exposer units on U/tube but rember the glass should be ultra clear not green .

There is considerably more to that story once you get into bigger screens and quality, but for smaller things that does work well, We did a bit more traditional with emulsion film, vacuum top.

That's pretty cool - I remember having to do cutouts with exacto blades..  then using a chemical to get the green stuff onto a screen..  then some other step..  Think I did it in middle school.

Thanks for posting these..
