Re: New Bryans Backflash ball release hole

Postby raj » Mon Jan 26, 2015 8:10 pm

I would not advocate gluing the flash for one very good reason. The solvents in most glues will dissolve either the backing layer and possibly the colour layer. I would follow pennymachines' advice. I used a sharp flat wood bit to cut the hole on a very slow drill, having tried a hole punch, which simply split the plastic.

fit new backflash etc etc

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Hi all,

I'm attempting to make one decent machine (Whales - Win a Kit-Kat) from a complete door and a "butchered" complete machine.

I guess I have all the bits to finish-up with one complete machine but WHERE TO START!

I am currently working on a new backflash, but how do I position it on the existing fixing holes and what is the best method of cutting the holes for ball release/gallery.

Any advice will be much appreciated and let me know if anyone needs the file of the backflash when it's done.

Thanks in advance. M_ick

I like to use a dremel style sanding wheel to smooth out the allwin ball entry/release holes. Either used in a Dremel or just in a standard hand drill. The sanding wheels are slightly smaller than what's needed so after drilling a pilot hole from the back of the artwork you can clean up and make sure there is no lip. Looks pro.

Assuming you're starting with clear plastic - hold it in place while you mark up the holes with a non-permanent marker pen. Otherwise, use a piece of tracing paper.

I'm sure it will prove useful if you upload it to Resources.

B M Co. backflash help

Postby pennymad » Sat Jun 06, 2015 11:05 am

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Hi everyone I'm currently restoring a large case B M Co. 24 cup allwin. I need a new backflash. It's red and a thinnish plastic like material but I don't know where I could get one from. I have brought some red card close to the colour and was going to have a play with getting one laminated and one sprayed with clear lacquer as a trial and error. I hope someone can help and give some advise please
Regards Dave.

Hi Dave, have you tried searching "backflash" or "back flash" in the Resources section of the forum?

I'm not promising you'll find what you need, I know there a few in there but I don't go out of my way for allwins.
You might need someone who is into BMCo and can photo one.
But it's worth a look. :cool:
