Mr. Pinball Tip:

Do you trouble removing old & stubborn 44/47 type bulbs from their sockets, especially on the head units? Then try this one for size: What you do is to get an old plastic coil sleeve, the longer the better. Wind a few inches of masking tape around the plain end, leaving about a 1/4'' overlapping. Push this overlap inside the sleeve, and away you go! If it does not grip enough, add more tape. Too thick, reduce the tape! Simple or what? All my bulbs came out in seconds! Should I patent this new wonder of the pinball world? LOL
