I made this pinball machine and I would like to start out by talking about my improvements to the box. I started with replacing springs for the rubber bands on the flippers to add durability. one of the finishing touches to my machine was a new ball storage container which I made out of 1/8th in wood. It works as a drawer and can hold quite a few more balls than the original catch.
For shots I made two ramps that lead to two tubes that went out the back of the machine and fed the ball to different places on the board. The design of my play board was inspired by a early on, poorly executed vinyl wrap That formed wrinkles that reminded me of a volcano and an island. I have two bumpers printed out of a rubbery plastic to bounce the ball off of. The bumpers also serve as an obstacle to the tube shots. This machine will live at berwick academy to be played by people of all ages.
