Quoted from brobra:

Can’t resist an extremely nice original wedgehead, I’m extremely happy with my new addition….
So clean, from playfield, to wiring, mechs, cabinet, etc….looks and smells new. Just a stunning find….

Long ass day running around the Chicsgo area. Moved a bunch of games for fellow pinsiders, and came across some rarities, and oddities. Thank you to all of you who supported this recent adventure.

Quoted from gorditas:

Not sure. They weren’t able to look at it today.
Made the best out of and got class A hospitality from the eu Claire guys.
Rolling in a rental home, that matches my hoodie, and game. Perhaps it was meant to be.
But then ofcourse got hail:/

It’s an awesome if you love pinball. Gratifying shots….

Pinball is like women, all sorts of different sizes and shapes and personalities; I love’Em all.

#2977 11 months ago

Fire is running well, LEDs and titans. Some head dings I think I’ll fill and paint. Should be very presentable when done.

Held on to this one for too long. Glad my friend was a l le to finally pick it up. One of the nicest original Paragons around.

Also hit my all time on TWD pro. Can’t get enough of this game.

I’m starting to be ok with walking dead. Between the pro, premium, le…the pro is actually the best product from a player’s perspective. The features and mechanics for the Le and premix are detractions versus enhancements from the players perspective. I don’t need a grab in front of the well walker and the drop down ramp, quirky switch underneath, and ball launch in the apron, are all prone to error and detract from game flow.
Believe me, I’m a huge fan of ambition, novelty, and big build mechs that enhance games, but not at the expense of reliability and overall game flow and speed. That’s just who I am.
I’ve been banging the fell out of my pro, and with recent experience with premiums and LEs, especially on location, I know the pro is a winner….
My daughter is my new pinball partner. Great times and memories, with our daily rituals, exploring various games. We always play with a dummy hand. Most of the time, the dummy wins, lol

Here’s a shot playing the variety of great games at SS billiards, the longest
Same location continuously operating arcade in the great nation of the United States of America. Don’t tread on LTG; celebrate him

55 day bump? You still moving games around?

#2988 8 months ago
Quoted from EJS:

55 day bump? You still moving games around?

I was out of commission with my vehicle for a major shit show for almost a month, and it really set me back.

Pinball market feels extremely slow.

I’m still available to move games and have been doing some moves, but really trying to stay local.

Pulling projects out of storage. Fairly happy with some basic cleanup on a barn find buckaroo. Fixed some electrical and soldered a few power connections, stripped playfield, polished and cleaned. Was pretty filthy, but cleaned up fairly well for what it is.

Also, replaced the the playfield on my diamond jack from a better source in the barn find.

Just slowly building up the 60s wedgehead collection.

Off to few more projects games, T2, Popeye, bow and arrow, and another diamond jack. Plus restored Congo….
