“Is this thread still worthwhile?”

  • This thread is past it's prime and is now boring me to tears! It no longer provides useful information. It's time to call it a day and close this thread down! 0 votes
  • While it may not be exciting or fun as other threads on Pinside, I still read this thread and am glad it is still being updated. There is still good information here and I pick up some helpful tips along the way. Keep it going! 43 votes

Quoted from Pecos:

Great idea! I have done business with barakandl and love his products. It is becoming rather obvious that I need a backup set of new Bally boards. This will happen again and putting in a new board as a permanent solution or until the original boards can be fixed is absolutely essential for an operator. Thanks! I'll definitely be following your advice.

I know it's tempting, but don't repair those old Bally rectifier boards. Barakandl sells kits. I personally ordered the blank boards for $15, bulk ordered the electronics from GPE & built three boards. All and all, the board build cost me $36 with shipping minus my time. Good Luck Pecos, keeping fighting and hustling. Awesome thread.

Have you considered any signage about the games Pecos? Alot of non-pinball people don't know where the start button is and I think a small sign with some directions or background about you and your games may help. ? Just thoughts.

Quoted from Pecos:

I am not looking forward to soldering all of those transformer wires to the back of this board.

It's easy but tedious. Make sure to do one wire at a time.
