A friend of mine asked me to pick any meter I wanted to, to replace my really poor DMM that I've been fighting forever (thanks Ryan!). A Sanwa SP-21 is what I chose: https://au.rs-online.com/web/p/analogue-multimeters/3534304/ Good balance of price and features. Has a continuity test, despite being an analog meter, as well as a diode test. Both are basically resistance tests, but nice to have. Uses two double-A batteries, which is convenient. I talk a bit about my first service call using the meter, as well as some challenges specific to the game. Next, a listener writes to discuss an alternative method of demagnetizing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p01225sBSJI Today's Year of Flipperless is Rockola's Screamo from October of 1935. Another proto-bingo, this time with a literal card layout, but a more fun playfield than most of the other early bingo concepts. http://ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2071&picno=66169
