I don't like that tool, in my opinion you have much more control and 'feeling' over what you do when you use a small screwdriver.
+1 and I'm a pro ;)

I alway use a flat screwdriver.
I can remove IC with scissor, knife or any other flat item, but NOT with the right tool. I've tested it and trash it :P

The top was with a pencil once, but the socket helped in that case

Oh, if anyone of the guys who bought a Pac Man with a Ms.Pac Man marquee will replace that marquee with a Pac Man marquee I could be interested in your Ms. Pac Man marquee......(do we all still follow this ? ;) )

Congratulations Andre!!!

I don't know if it matters much to you, probably not much at all..... but just so you have all the relevant information about your new machine....that control panel overlay is not original, it's one of the TWOBIT's reproductions. Not surprising since the machine came from the US, many ops did that to replace the beat up original.

You can see a comparison between that one you have and the original version here.

puh, if you compare them side by side you can see that the reproduction really is CRAP - have a look at those inaccurate ms pac-man characters  :'(!

i guess the chances of finding an original cpo are slim, but i'll give it a try on klov ...

Damn ! You ruined my day Wunder ;)

No wonder that it still is in this condition.....

It feels dirty to have the Ms. wear TwoBits stuff......will definitely need to fix that !

Yes André, too bad that yours CPO is a f...ing TwoBit. I noticed the comparising picture on Jeff rothe's blog this aftrernoon, and I studied and compared it with the CPO on my cab. Strange thing is that the right side looks original (surely not the TwoBit repro), but the left side doesn't look right.

See for yourself (both pictures are from my CPO):






What do you guys think?

In fact, I suspect them to be very poor TwoBits repro's !

comparing to the pics on rotheblog i would suspect it to be a repro too..

the outer black line is very "thick" and the detail in the eyes of mrs. dont look like the original shown on that website.
