is this on the order of what you need? maybe you can try a watch maker repair shop.
Yes . The needle assembly on the lower left of the playfield .
The needle , the shaft , and the piece attached to the bottom of the playfield .
The machine is a Jennings cocktail hour .
Are you parting that machine out ?
Thanks
Sam

Notable Features: 10 balls for 5 cents. Uses red balls. Operates on batteries.

That pointer reminds me of spinners from family board games. The actual size is hard to judge from the above image and http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4278I wonder what the the under playfield parts look like. Any chance a reasonable facsimile can be cobbled togerther using http://www.amazon.com/Spinners-Fasteners-idea-ology-Finishes-TH92717/dp/B001ASMWZW?
Thanks for the link .
The needle could possibly work , but there is a driver that is mounted to the under side of the pinball play field that drives the needle once a tilt is detected .The driver is basically what I am looking for . There is a very similar tilt on my old liberty bell payout pinball if I get a chance I will pull the glass and lift the play field and shoot a picture for reference .

    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?

    oh wait, I see it

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Can we get back to the subdomain folders/files, the uploads.pinballnirvana.com folder is where uploads would need to be, just wondering what might need to be deleted..

  • @ Ike Savage:
    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

    Uploading a 1.34 GB Pink Floyd The Wall zip file via ftp to test...

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    The file is actually on the server in FP originals but isn't public.

  • @ Anthias:
    Um, so, Hi!. What did I miss? (he says as though he ducked to the toilet while the adds were on...)
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
