Here is a quick video of how the flipper and ball lifter work for those interested.

That's really cool thanks, now the tricky one, can you make a video of how a woman works? 'Cos that really beats me.

Is there some kind of angle piece that attaches to the inside of the door and diverts the ball of the lift, or is it angled?

Here are a couple of photos. The whole playfield is on a slight tilt and there is a rail along the bottom that feeds the balls to the lifter then at the top is a flexible flap that pushes the balls off the lifter down a ramp to the flipper. Hope this makes sense.

Very nice, best keep that door firmly locked you don't want any gremlins getting in there.

I've managed to keep my gremlin away from harming my machine by keeping him on top of one of my pinball test benches. Works out well because whatever is coming in there already has issues.
