Mr. Pinball Tip:

Relying on the old standby trick of stuffing toothpicks down those reamed-out playfield screw holes in order to retighten post screws, I one day found nary a toothpick in the house and was faced with a couple of loose post screws. Desperate, I substituted bamboo kabob skewers that I found in a drawer. The result was astonishing in that the screws tightened down as never before! The hard wood nature of the bamboo withstood the screw threads rather than crumbling like the softer toothpick wood. The bamboo skewers work so well that they're now standard equipment in the workshop!
