Sega "Jet Rocket" 1970
« on: November 26, 2014, 09:03:19 PM »
Just picked up this  few weeks ago. 1970 Sega Jet Rocket,  I have got the game going again and a general clean up . A few picks of the game , First shots are of the internal moving landscape .  2nd shot are of the contact wipers that wipe against metal mesh  (Sewn onto the underside of the landscape) and control the "Hits". The whole thing is lit up using Blacklights . Machine has electronics sounds  IE  Rockets, Jet Engines and Explosion sounds.

Amazing find.

I remember these growing up. There was a similar design with a "Dune Buggy" game with a changing landscape. I will watch with interest !

These shots show the rockets firing , It fires from the left then next shots are fired from the right and so on till the time runs out. And a few shots of the games Blacklights  all lit up.

Coooooooooooool Dude, looking forward to seeing this beast and how those fingers work on the play field canvas, if that's what you call it!
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

A few more pics Before and After. Backglass is flackey so will be sealed  and  art redone. Hence no flouro going atm , as it  is a distraction and shines in your eyes.. Games should have 455 flashers in the front lights just for show . Atm they are 44's but will be changed back to the original 455 flashers...

The Sound board needed new caps installed as you could only just hear it , even at full volume,  Jaycar had most of the caps that were needed. Installed all new caps into both boards ( Bar two in one board , but i have the correct ones to go in now) , A amp board and the sound board itself, Plugged it in and nearly blew my eardrums, Volume was still un maximum, 
Adjusted the volume and tweaked the small trimpots to adjust the explosion and jet sounds etc . What a huge difference all sounds can be heard now.. A few pics and one showing the sound board details for certain sound adjustments...

That is super cool Ralph - what a find. Keep your updates coming - I absolutely love your repair posts. Cheers.

Ps. Nino mentioned a buggy game similar - it's not Moon Patrol is it (I think Moon Patrol was more a video game & maybe Nino's talking about a beach buggy)?

I enjoy Porsche, Gibson LPs, Bally-Williams & learning about pinball maintenance & restoration.

Small update regarding the backglass restoration .
I only took one rather crappy picture of the backglass at it was ,
First i sealed the glass , I drew outline lines on the front of the glass as a guide , Mainly for the straight white lines etc that are around "Rocket"  Then after hours of work hand painting it's looking a whole lot better compared to the flakey thing that it was before .
I still need to "Blackout" the areas that i have repainted then re' seal the whole thing .
The  Orange "Jet Rocket" letters will then be gone over using a friends air brush...
