    Your metal pieces look really good, nice and shiny. Really, everything looks clean and whitened and shiny.

    You might check your parts for a small plastic sleeve.
    The white piece that has two, 90 degree bent, wires coming out of it is missing the plastic sleeve, that holds it out from the board.
    Without the sleeve, the 2 wires won't be in the correct position to line up with the levers on the payout hopper.

    Here are a couple of pictures to show you what I'm referring to.

    Unfortunately I can’t find that plastic sleeve. I’ll make one. How long is it?

    I’m very happy that you are. I’m a noobie that is way over his head. So thanks for helping.

    If you've gotten this far, you're far from a "noobie", you're doing a fantastic job.

    Truth be told, I had to reach out to Wayne-Ooo when I was reassembling my arrangeball and found a "spare" brass sleeve part that fell out while I was taking it apart, from where I had no idea. It happens, that's why this board and it's members are an amazing asset.

    Next up is the wiring. I plan to make some minor changes. Nothing drastic. My question is related to the power supply. What does everyone use and what is the voltage? Also do you wire a switch into the circuit to turn the light system off?

    I use a 9v battery with a little case that has an on / off switch, got them on Amazon, pretty sure eBay would have them as well. I prefer it over a plug in transformer because I don't have to have my machines near a wall outlet. Also like LED light bulbs, nice and bright with the 9v battery set up.

    I've been getting them on eBay for a couple of years now from a seller who goes by "neonbrad", appears he's away until tomorrow, 9/18/23, so he's removed his postings, but here's the link to his account, he repopulates his stores inventory when he's back.

    Great job, that came out really nice, chrome looks sweet. I especially like the two blues you used both around the ball tray and the frame.
