01.20 — Chris and Jared have new jobs

We’ve both got new gigs and we share with you a bit about the new opportunities.

My colleagues at Credit Sense are awesome and gave me a fantastic farewell gift that I won’t soon forget.

08:50 — Force 2 progress update

I go into how I want to try using book covering film to do the frisket masking on the cabinet.

Zen asked the community to share their dream list tables that aren't yet produced, from a new licenses perspective. Chris rattles off his list of tables, some of which are unusual choices.

24:50 — Star Wars and Comic Book art

Star Wars cartoon art lower playfield

Star Wars has had the art pass it should’ve had to start with.

Beautiful comic book art that makes it look fantastic.

And apparently it isn’t Comic Sans, which makes me sad.

30:00 — Superbands on Flippers

Don’t do it.

Superbands on everything else, except for the bit that connects you to the table.

31:30 — Juggling pinball machine to restore

It’s a sliding tile puzzle in the garage to try and fit all the machines in.

Time to make up a leg dolly for the pinball machines. More on this next episode.
