DIY Pinball - Flipper

This is the final version of my flipper design, uses an Allen key (hex wrench) as the shaft to make it easy to replicate using parts from your local hardware store.

I have made a space in the flipper for a zip/cable tie so no glue is required.

Fusion & STL files available here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2718971

I will probably make a base plate for the bearings and motor mounts just to sure everything up in the final pinball design.

Ah, thanks for the reply.

Do you have a link/URL to the motors you purchased? Mine don't have return springs.

  Are you sure? yes | no

They where purchased from ebay so a link would have expired by now. you may have to try a few different vendors or buy a spring pack

  Are you sure? yes | no

I saw springs on your first version. But on this version I don't see how you return the flipper to its down position. Is your car door lock device different than mine?

  Are you sure? yes | no

The motors i have return by themselves (internal spring). i had springs on the first version but turns out i didn't need them. would depend on your motors if springs are required
