Mr. Pinball Tip:

Do you have, or ever have a leg bolt that has been stripped? Well, if you go to your local hardware store, and ask for a 3/8 #16 tap. This will help most of the time. Take the tap, apply some machine oil, and screw it in just like a leg bolt. Then unscrew the tap almost all the way, then back in again. You have just tapped the screw hole, and removed any metal shavings that were in the threads. Now replace the leg bolt with a new one. It will be like new again. Don't use the old leg bolt. If you do, you will have the same problem again.
