Here is another one of our series of dress-up mods for WOZ. The original mount for the ball leaves a bit of design on the table. We spent a lot of time figuring out the easiest and cleanest update to this area. What you're seeing here is a prototype print that came out really bad, but you get the idea. There is a flying monkey designed in to the column base.
With the upgrade comes a brand new crystal ball. The upgrade to this mount necessitated a different ball mount design. The ball is made from K9 crystal which is an Optical Borosilicate Crown Crystal (Optically Clear) with low inclusions and imperfections used in things like lenses, crystals, photo balls, etc. It's free of imperfections and weighs probably 50% more than the original, much more dense. It's a heavy piece of glass. The ball will be installed on our mount already and all you need to do is swap your screen over, removing just a few screws.
The entire assembly can be adjusted in 4 different locations. The entire assembly can be rotated left and right to angle it perfectly at the player. The ball platform can be rotated up or down to match the height of your players. The screen mount can move forward and back, allowing you to adjust the size of the image in the ball and the screen can move up and down on the mount to adjust the centering of the image. Truly the most adjustment we could build in to it.
The replacement will include removing a few nuts, unplugging the screen and swapping it over. Probably a 15-20 minute install if you go slow.
