Mr. Pinball Tip:

For those of you fixing a pin and find yourself about 500 miles from the nearest replacement rubber--I have found that sewing the ends together with a needle and stiff thread will repair broken rubber rings in emergency situations. If possible position the stitches away from ball contact, such as on the back side of a flipper. If it doesn't hold the first time, try again. This is a temporary repair that should last a few days until you can get replacements!
