    Smile Power Flash "Cheat" Button

    This mod will open your power flash tulips with the press of a button.

    To make any pachinko machine "looser"; the best mod is subtle nail bending! This mod goes above and beyond but only works on a power flash.

    This mod requires drilling an additional hole (or enlarging the existing hole) for the wires to exit from the main micro switch on the servo's plastic housing. I didn't figure that out until after realizing the mechanism got hung up on the additional wires. The pictures were taken BEFORE the hole was drilled.

    22 ga. wires (red and black in pictures) and an additional ribbon wire (grey) for future expansion were soldered to the existing main (top) microswitch.

    A hole was drilled at the bottom of the machine through the bottom tray and bottom tray trim for the wires to pass through. There is enough extra wire left to allow soldering the N.O, momentary contact, push button. The wires were soldered and then colored shrink tubing was applied over the terminals. A mounting hole was drilled for the push button (Radio Shack # 275-1547) to be installed. The "cheat" button is hidden from normal view.

    The wires were routed through some plastic cable guides.

    Nice job! If one didn't know better, he would think it came out of the factory like that.
