"The original lineup for the first game in 1927: “Toots” Wright, “Fat” Long, “Kid” Oliver, “Runt” pullins, and Andy Washington."


The pictures below show the second playfield before the touch ups. This playfield had some issues but it was much better than the original. The next page will have pictures of the touch-ups and the clearcoating.

The New Blank Playfield Topside

Front before

Here is the new playfield with rails and everything removed. I should have clearcoated it before making the swap. But I didn't.

Front gouge

Above the two playfields are set up side by side. After removing all of the screws and staples, my wife and I picked up the mass of wires and carried them in one motion to the new playfield. The wires basically maintain their shape so that it is easy to position them on the new playfield.
