Cliffy and I set out to reproduce the Creature under playfield scoops. These are tricky parts, with awkward geometry and tricky bends. Plus, they are made from heavy gauge stainless steel.
Here are the outlines for the blanks. These are quite tricky to draw without flattening the original
|Here are the original and a repro, side by side. Cliffy did the bends from memory and my bend marks. We are bith happy with the results!|
|The black finish is something that we do not care to produce again. We are experimenting with various finishing processes, and this one will not make the cut.||Perfect hole alignment|
|Slight change in rear angle needed|
|Next up: the snack bar scoop!|
