It’s not what I do say… it’s what I’m not saying… for my pinball.

I’ve been doing a lot to get my pinball machine together over the past few weeks. Enough where I’m actually neglecting this blog because I’m working. :)

As I’ve been testing I’ve been posting on my Facebook page(which is kinda weird to do if I’m NOT posting on my blog), mainly because my Facebook is easier to upload to. That is until I fix this website. I have a lot of work to do… I hope I make you proud.

Solenoid Mount

This is a mockup of the solenoid mount used in a Zizzle pinball machine.

I didn’t get a chance at the end of March to talk about the project I worked on, because it isn’t being released yet. My buddy and I made a mockup for a game idea we’ve kicked around for the past 3 years. We’re going to do a bit more building off on it hence why I’m not showing it. It’s just not ready yet.
OH! Back to the solenoid mount. So, this weekend I “took it easy” and finally got around to a few projects that I wanted to finish up. The above is a recreated mount for a 24V DC 42N 10mm Open Frame Electronic Solenoid HCNE1-1253 that I plan on using for my pinball machine. I finally got a moment(and the motivation) to work on it a bit this weekend, and here are the results. I’ll keep you all updated on the progress.
