Product Description

CSF = Custom Swappable Flippers

#1 = Post (generic part)

 

Here is a new batch of products that allow you to create custom flipper bats for your game that can be easily mixed and matched while the posts stay installed in the flipper mech until the next service 12-18 months and can be re-used.

 

These custom swappable flipper kits are not the cheapest due to Shapeways costs but in the modding world is a reasonable priced mod. The beauty with these flippers is install the post with the assembled bat once just like a typical bat and once aligned you can swap the bats (remove from the installed post) in and out without lifting the playfield, all with just the glass removed.

 

You can swap out bat colours, as well as custom design bats with the first ones being Ghostbuster PKE bats.

 

Also you can swap out flipper lengths where 3" Bats are the typical bat length for 1990's and 2000's pinball games. But for fun you can now buy and install 2 7/8" bats (like the lighting bats) or 3 1/8" bats to close in the Trudeau gap like for Ghostbusters.

 

#1 Info

- pick your material

- order 2 off

- tap the top hole and side hole in the post (metric 4 x 1mm tape ) - (tap, screws and allen key can be purchased locally at a bolt specialist or through me at cost - send me a pm)

- the 2 holes allow for TM = top mounted or SM = side mounted bats as a possible future style bat so the posts remain universal.

 

General Info

- see the chart in the image section to determine what parts you will need to do you custom set of flippers.

- refer to the flipper bat reference screen shot for a sample of what can be achieved - lengths and types.

- on the under side near the shaft hole are 1-3 dots as a quick reference to determine the bat length - 1 dot = 2 7/8", 2 dots = 3", 3 dots = 3 1/8" bats

- all nylon parts are not painted and that is a choice of the buyer if they want to paint a custom colour or gloss up.

- each bat has the exact same hollowed section as in the future with the tips  being extended for the longer bat but is solid for strength.
