The end of stroke switch (EOS) is your pinball flipper assembly’s best friend. The End Of Stroke switch keeps the flipper in check, but it does have a hard job. It gets beat up; many times per game, and eventually, you will need to repair or replace that old end of stroke switch. Which EOS switch do you need, and what is an EOS switch for?

Did you know that Bob Matthews made a comprehensive guide for playing in those “classics” tournaments?

We get a lot of questions from people asking about coil substitutions. Let’s preface by saying we always recommend replacing a coil with the same part number as the original. Remember, a weak flipper probably won’t be fixed by replacing the coil with a stronger one, and changing to a non-factory recommended coil can cause damage to plastics, drop targets and ramps.

When dealing with screws, nuts, and bolts, understanding the cryptic part numbers can simplify ordering. The last 2 digits (XX) of the 4 digit fastener part numberprefix (40XX-12345-12) indicates the standard stud size of the bolt or screw. For example, part #4006-01030-12 indicates a #6 stud diameter (.138″) fastener. The 2 digit part number suffix for bolts and screws (-12, -04, -16, etc) indicates the number of 1/16″ length increments of the fastener. For example, part #4004-01003-04 indicates a screw that is 4/16″ long or 1/4″ long. Click “Read More” at the top right for more information.
