Curious about any pins for sale in/around the Edmonton area? Let me know if you know....
Just found a HUO monster bash on kijiji edmonton....FYI for those who may be interested.
Quoted from Spencer:
Is there anybody in Calgary or area that would like to come over and play a few games, have a few beers and give an honest opinion on a couple of my games??
I'm building a new house and will be selling a couple of games to help that process, new furniture, etc... you get it...whatever the wife wants...
Ive also got a shit ton of arcades, kids rides, signed photos, signed jerseys, celebrity autos, everything......
Send me a PM or text me. 403-875-9426
Quoted from Indusguys:
Yeah, I will report back if I speak with the seller over the phone, and decide if it's legit.
If he's legit and you need someone to just double confirm let me know. I'm on vacation (pending overtime) until the end of the month. So I don't mind checking it out to let you know if it's on the level.
Question for Edmonton pinsiders....
I would like to have my pin completely torn down, cleaned & waxed. This is a job that is well beyond my capabilites and I plan on hiring someone for this task.
Anyone have experience dealing with http://videogamerepairs.ca/contact/ in Edmonton?
I called them and they stated that they do what I am requesting and have done it on numerous pins before. (But not mine specifically)
They said it's a task that can range from 12-20 man hours.
I'm just curious if anyone has any experience with them. I want to make sure my pin is well treated and restored properly....thats all.
Or is there somewhere/someone else who is highly recommended?
Quoted from Boat:
I would recommend getting some examples of their work. I think everyone has a different opinion on what shopped or restored is and the quality of the service could be different depending where you go. It doesn't sound like you are looking for a high end restore but its better to be safe!
I plan on going in to speak with them today for a little Q&A.
Ask if they can show me some of their previous work (I'm sure they kept tear down pics from the past), what their actual process of a tear down consist of, price, turnaround time, what products they use to clean/wax, etc.
Quoted from robbiedoo:
I can't speak to their work on pins, but they have never let me down with repairs in regard to consoles. They always seem to have a few arcades there in queue to be serviced.
Thanks for the information
Just throwing this out there...
Street Fighter II for trade...
- recently shopped from top to bottom. (Everything taken apart and thoroughly cleaned and playfield waxed)
- includes color pin2DMD with animations completely redone
- cliffy protectors installed on all four major out holes
- Titan rubbers installed throughout
- Alternate translite and original both included
- NOS upper playfield replaced 3 months ago
- post light installed in the Ken/Ryu circular target
Basically the only thing not worked on is the cabinet. But it's still in great condition
Looking to trade for a....
...but would entertain other 90's DMD pins.....+/- cash.
PM me if interested. I can include pics if you like
Quoted from Mitch:
I think you mean shopped not restored. Restored means it's perfect zero broken parts or wear, cabinet redone and normally playfield cleared.
Taking everything off the playfield and cleaning it then re assembling is just a good shop job.
If that's the case then you are correct. I sent it out to a guy who took two weeks to do a full tear down job.
Sorry about that.....not trying to pull a fast one on anybody.
Quoted from Pinhead306:
Anyone know who had the Gb pro for sale on kijiji from the Edmonton area? Did it end up selling?
It's still there....he seems to take it down and repost it periodically. Fresh ad was 2 days ago.....but it's been available for months now.
I believe one of his ads stated it was a previously routed pin (but now his reposts don't mention that fact)
I just played that royal rumble a few days ago. It's fun and works well from what I could gather. Love the shaker and upper playfield.
Looking to buy a Gottlieb The Incredible Hulk (1979) in Alberta.
I will be at YEGPIN this weekend.
I need to move items from an family estate in Ontario to Alberta. Wouldn't be more than a few large items. (not even be 1/3 of a shipping container I figure)
Anyone have a suggestion for a moving/transport company? Thanks
Quoted from TheHueManatee:
The main piece is basically a massive dinning room table with 6 chairs. All hand crafted wood from the late 1800's (apparently).
So it's too big and bulky to fit on skids
Here are some of the pics.....any suggestions are appreciated.
Quoted from Meegis:
Likely need specialty ltl.
Best option would be a moving company. Or find a buddy with a trailer and some spare time. Lol
Figured. Putting things on pallets or skids makes it easier for these companies....but unfortunately it's just not an option with these bulky items.
Maybe I'll look into a mini shipping container that gets dropped off and picked up.
That didn't last long
Quoted from dirkdiggler:
Taking a break from the hobby and putting my last 2 games up for sale. Selling together. If they don't sell I'll be putting them in storage. Also get any leds, rubbers, parts I have laying around.
Williams Gorgar. Plays 100%. Rebuilt boards, bumpers and drops. Backglass is nice. Cabinet is very nice and playfield is good with a few paint touchups and mylar. Full Comet leds and Titan rubbers. Has manual and coinbox.
Williams Pinbot. Plays 100%. Lots of upgrades already completed and parts to do a full restore. Includes a spare playfield, new plastics, spiral ramp, pinball pimps stencil kit and numerous parts from Marcos. Full non ghosting Comet leds already installed. Playfield has wear but doesn't effect gameplay. Cabinet outside is stripped and ready for bondo and stencils. Manual included.
$4500 for the pair. Might consider a trade for a nice fishtales or bsd but prefer to just sell them.
That's a bummer to hear.
Quoted from flashinstinct:
Since I am apparently getting a thumbs down, I'd be curious to know how much people think these are worth. Please consider location in your estimate. I know folks in AB pay only 5% tax while people in Ontario pay 13% which can fluctuate the price greatly. I want to be fair but don't want to hand them over either.
I wouldn't put too much stock in the thumbs down. Ask your price...whatever you think fair is.
Quoted from libtech:
Thought Full Throttle was sold, but the buyer didnt show up, relisted:
What a douche move. I hate no shows
Before I bought my first pin I checked one out at this infamous seller's house. His garage was filled with beat up pinball machines and arcades, A friend of mine warned me not to buy from him as there was a nicer example of what I was looking for in Calgary for the same price.
I was curious and went to check it out anyways. The machine was in awful condition and didn't even have LED's. I played a game and left. He called me back and said he'd throw in a bag of LED's for the same price. I politely decline and told him I was buying a much nicer example for the same price in Calgary.
Easiest thing to do is tell "Hany" that you have a buddy in Calgary who wants to go over and verify the game's condition for you. If he goes silent you know it's a scam.
Quoted from BHmike:
I also have had recent dealings with "Hany".
I posted an ad on Kijiji for a Back To The Future Pin.
He contacted me, said he was from Calgary, and that he could ship it. We talked for a bit, he came across friendly. When I asked for some kind of assurance from him, he sent me "his" drivers license. Then he asked for mine.
I didn't send it to him. Then he asked for my full mailing address to get a shipping quote. I gave him my address only. No name is associated with my email account.
Something still didn't feel right, so I waited a few days to reply. He suddenly seemed rushed to get this done. I asked him if we could use PayPal, he said he doesn't use that as he doesn't trust it. Asked him for Social Media links, said he doesn't use that either because of trust issues of privacy with Facebook.
Did a search for his "FREE" email address, and came upon this thread.
So thank you. Thank you for this info, it solved my dilemma immediately, and, it made me sign up and pay to be verified.
Once I got here, I did a search for a BTTF pin, and stumbled upon this ad: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fsft-back-to-the-future-the-pinball-1
Imagine my surprise when EVERY image in this ad from a year ago matched the images "Hany" sent me.
So um, I guess now my question is... Anyone got a BTTF pin in Southern Ontario?
What a piece of shit!
Shake your dicks boys.....just end the pissing contest already.
Let's sell some pins!!
Good luck with the hunt. Let us know what you settled on.
Quoted from Graysonsdad:
I'm currently talking to another member about possibly shipping my first pin (the shipping, not the pin). He seems like he is on the up and up but I have been mislead in the past. If anyone here has purchased a shopped game from transprtr4u please let me know. I just want to verify he is a trustworthy pinhead before sending any kind of payment or anything. Thanks so much
Shipping/etransfers are scary territory
I have purchased from him and his work is very detailed and thorough. He is more than on the level. I actually helped him prep/load a pin for shipment a few weeks ago.
You will not be disappointed with Rob. Stand up guy!
Quoted from transprtr4u:
Sold my Shadow and my CPR set has arrived.
So as I don't need it putting the CPR Gold playfield and mini playfield and complete plastics up for sale.
If purchased from CPR it would be over 1200 USD .. No game no need so$950. CDN
Please pm me if your interested before I post it to the Market Place
Great deal! Someone snatch this!
Cash on the picnic table!! Doesn't have the same ring to it as "cash on the glass" though.
Maybe leave the money on the front lawn? Cash on the grass!!!
