Quoted from brobra:

Appreciate the tip. Love the high tops, good latch systems, and I suppose now, reliability.

Ours have been incredibly reliable and the resale is amazing on them. The cargo version will make an incredible pin mover.

Thumbs up. Will do and thank you; I’ll hit you up. Appreciate it.

#1413 13 days ago

Hitting BSD today. Too many switch errors, most likely a LM33 chip.
But instead of wasting a few hours, had to hit up the Pinball Basement for a fresh WPC MPU Board (grabbed a spare too).
Guys don’t really get any better than Charlie...

Brobra I am a follower of your thread and travels. One of the only threads I come on pinside for. Also an admirer.
Brobra wanted to buy a machine I had for sale and things like the weather keep getting in the way. And my availability. I ended selling locally. But Brobra always replied and handle things with class. Never any bs or negative replies. So to anyone out there thinking of dealing Brobra rest assured your dealing with a quality guy. Never met him but from or correspondence I can tell he's a top notch guy!!! Safe travels and I hope the end of the rainbow lands at your feet.

#1415 13 days ago

t2 thank you, I appreciate your kind words, and there’s no hard feelings from me either. You’re a class act too.
Some times it works and sometimes not; it’s all about flow.
Feel free to post your next score here.

Blessing in disguise.
Picked up a deal for my trip back down.
The universe at work. Thank you universe for always pulling through when I need it. (For some reason, it only works that way.)
[quoted image]

Hmm. Electro-pop and an image that blends an ocean reef and deep space. Is this what the universe is becoming? I can hear SS sounds in that song. I have to assume the sound designers at Williams were at least aware of Kraftwerk. I liked their song Das Model as a teen, although I didn't dare admit that to my friends. Very catchy!

As the universe expands; kraftwerk songs get distorted and elongated through the Brobra space time effect. Great road tunes to zone. Love the synth stuff that was so cool, then cheesy, but has aged well and is primed nostlogic head cheese. Probably why I feel like I’m regressing from the 90s into the 80s and late 70s, the genesis for all mainstream electronica.

That may almost be an understatement. It looks pretty much brand new!

Quoted from Krupps4:

Yeah, it was in a home since the late 90s, but may have been routed lightly; although didn’t find any evidence of that. Playfield and inserts are flat and no fade due to a dark basement. Can’t really come across many of these nice originals in the wild.

#1433 10 days ago

NIB TBL if anyone is looking. Can deliver locally or further in the right situation.

That No Fear looks real nice!

#1435 10 days ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

That No Fear looks real nice!

Yeah, was able to degrease a few rub marks on the cab and the small ding on the head was filled, wet sanded, and painted with a nice semi gloss to match. Frankly, it’s nearly perfect now. Added some new rubbers, playfield didn’t need much cleaning, waxed, and then used the electric toothbrush to get the wax marks off the star posts. Playing the hell out of it. Currently leaving incandescent. It’s lit really well naturally. May post a quick play video.

#1436 10 days ago

Pretty nice Cleo. If I were to keep I’d add new plastics. And maybe touch up the normal kick out hole wear spots. Planning on shopping it tomorrow, but would discount for unshopped. Needs some rubbers and drop targets which are approximately $50 shipped. Plastics are about $100 shipped.

On deck....
The Walking Dead LE cleaned up very well, cabinet and powder coat are nearly

Ac/DC premium. About as nice as you’ll find.

PM with interest, technically as trades for now, but listings forthcoming unless a trade or movement in other markets occur.

Came across this octagon poker/bumper pool table set. It’s oak, needs a new felt, is a regular table and has a card set up on the back of the top piece (for drinks and chips). 4 chairs included.
Perfect for an 8 player ring game.
If there’s interest let me know.

Put a few plays on one of these not too long ago. The game was super fast, with nice shots, well-themed with great music.
Very unique to have a compilation instead of a collection of songs from a single band.
