Lets flip to the top side.
We need to start by installing the wire forms. These are used to guide the ball in various places during the game. Of course, we clean and buff these before installing.
It would be convenient if the holes pre drilled for thiS purpose were the right size and depth. But they are too small and too shallow.
So we drill them out larger and deeper. But this is necessary to do on the front side of the playfield. What I do when drilling the front is to chuck the drill bit into the drill chuck and then drill by HAND – I don’t connect the drill but just turn the chuck in my hand. It is just too easy to really mess the new finish up!
