    Nothing like working on a Solid-State Evel Knievel directly to the side of the stage at the Chapeau Vert titty bar on Telegraph Road in Detroit. Got knocked on my ass by the 190 volts DC because I just had to peek around and watch the show while fixing the machine. To be fair, this was in 1980....

    Another was at the now gone Red Run Lanes in Royal Oak, MI (Now a CVS drugstore IIRC). I got the call to go there when they opened at 9:00 am. Someone broke into the place and crowbarred their way into a Paragon, Flash, Atari video game and a cigarette machine of ours. Whole front of the Paragon was off. Had to patch with glue, screws and a wrap-around hasp with padlocks on both sides of the cabinet.

    The Atari video was worse (Sprint 2 IIRC). A hole to the right of the coin door, but they couldn't get at the coins as it was the Atari coin mech door & separate cash box door. Then they crowbarred the whole double door assembly and peeled it away. I had to turn it around and have our truck drivers pick it up.

    Quoted from Mogg:

    After those instances do you:
    Pull your games from facility ?
    Put a claim with your insurance? The facility insurance?
    Have a mean conversation with someone in charge?
    Keep repairing game if it earns?
    Sell game on pinside?

    Repair or replace. The establishment and Operator have a CONtract. The Operator I worked for had liability insurance but no loss coverage so we ate the costs.
