    Default ball drop feeds 2 machines

    this is a genius idea that came from the purchase of the ugly green 2 pachinko stand.
    the ball lifter feeds into this unit: it is basically two plates that direct the balls to drop directly on the 'T' device as the balls drop the 'T' flips back and forth sending every other ball to one machine or the other. the pivot point is at the intersection of the 'T'.

    Here is a photo of the ball diverter that is attached to the center pocket on the Nishijian Owl Machine.

    The Diverter sends balls alternating to the left and to the right to trigger the Side Tross Payouts.

    This might be the best shape to make for your Ball Drop feeder diverter.

    The diverter(Teeter/Totter) is red and the background red plastic backing is glued to the clear track so it might be difficult to see the exact shape of the diverter piece.

    And that would more than likely add to the noise of the machines!! Yea!

    Sounds good, but I have a question.

    If one machine is not being played, is turned off, is full to the brim with balls already, then what way do you have to direct balls only to the other game which needs all the balls? It appears to me a massive ball jam will occur all the way back to the pivot point.

    the whole upper tray is still slanted in only one direction so if they build up enough they will continue down to the low side (left). if you have enough balls to fill the tray your playing with about 12000 balls for just two machines.
