Ordered some initial parts and components for the Pinball Project today.
Firstly – some standard sized pinballs to get an idea of the sizes and weights involved.
Second, some Flipper Coils, chosen pretty much at random. I think the make is Bally or Williams. Other than the size, I have no idea about the technical specs.
