I provide a set of Quick Links below to take you to a topic of interest.  The links can be used by folks that are new to Pinball and are interested in a variety of topics often discussed, but I include the pictures. 

For example, if you've played an old EM game and you heard a knocking sound when you got an extra ball you could check out the "Knocker" link to see what is causing that sound.  Folks often hear about the release lever that is used to raise the playfield but maybe you don't know where it's located - see the picture.  I also show some tilt mechanisms so you will get an idea of how the tilt mechanism detects you banging on the game.  Or how about the "prop rod" and where it is located?  A variety of topics are listed below as well as my own extensive EM Cleaning page that describes the process I go through to clean my EM games. 

Be sure to use the navigation bar at the top of each page to view other topics under "Odds & Ends" in the Pinball navigation link which reveals even more stuff. Hope you enjoy the info!
