    Just buy the alligator clips and make your own with speaker wire. VERY VERY easy to do, no special tools needed either.

    A small plier (needle nose is best) to fold the alligator tabs, thats it. You can strip the wire with any knife if you dont have a proper stripper/cutter.

    If you need instructions, Im sure many can happily help out.

    #3403 15 days ago

    Good idea. Probably cheapest and best way. Seems all the pre made ones only 1m.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    I'm looking to get a few stools for in front of the arcade and multicade and don't want to spend alot. Don't care on subject matter. Any leads on where to buy?

    [quoted image]

    Try princess auto, might not be the best but will be priced right.

    #3408 4 days ago

    Also, best buy had Marvel and co. stools and such, like Turtles on their website for $99 maybe a while back?

    #3409 4 days ago

    I ordered my arcade1up stools for $90 each (Pac-Man, Marvel, Galaxian, and Star Wars) from the brick. I picked them up same day.

    #3410 4 days ago

    I like the shop stool style but wife likes stools with backs on them. Picked up this style at Canadian tire on black Friday a few years back for $50. Should have grabbed a few more as I haven't seen them that cheap since.

    There’s a place in Toronto: Brightside Curtom Powder Coating and he completely understands pinball. Turn around was quick.

    Got my JP and TSPP. JP is even nicer but I only have TSPP photos at the moment.

    That looks great. Do you have to strip them or can they just powder coat overtop?

    I have some DDR bars I wouldn't mind getting done along with my pin.

    They would have to sandblast them down then powdercoat

    They would do it as part of their service. You just bring the parts as is to the powdercoater. Few I have done.

    The rails on newer sterns have to be stripped first as the metal is to thin to blast old powder off.

    Anyone in Saskatoon making a Black Friday comet order tomorrow? A friend wants to order 12, 25 packs and split on shipping

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    I believe it's still cheaper to choose 100 packs (even though they still come in 25x4) if I remember correctly

    Quoted from northerndude:

    59.00 for 100 pack or 48.50 after discounts for four 25 packs tomorow

    LOL, makes sense!

    #3424 3 days ago

    I would only get into to grab a couple spotlights and/or a handful of those mega bright bulbs for them.

    Looks good. Price depends on what you get done. If you just wanted the Hinge, rails and legs it’s around 250 I think. I did a lot of parts so I think i was $700 for both pins.

    JP- Apron, Speaker Grill, Coin Door, Rails, Hinge, Legs

    TSPP- same as above but I added the mono-rail and the habitrails. (No speaker grill)

    I had some time to finally get in and try to get both my pins to 100%
    When I called an area repair place they were not really concerned about my pins issue until it was in house. (too bad, a little effort here could have had me book that day)
    I paid someone to fix my pin and have to research how in the past, but never to a 'repair shop'.
    They seemed more interested in fixing older SS than my newer Stern.
    Luckily, what I was hoping would work, did.
    I guess I will do my mods on my own.

    #3433 1 hour ago

    That's a very Canadian way of expressing your disappointment with a local comminity member & a repair company by gently throwing them under the bus.. all the while not disclosing their identity to actually embarrass them or be called out on your misunderstanding of the whole situation! Now exhale & go crush a white-claw or two!

    Ps- stay off the home made mods!
