Quoted from rosh:

If I agree to sell at a price, I sell it at that price. If after I hang up the phone someone else offers more, I honor my original agreement.
When I bought my Bally Playboy, which was HUO, the guy wanted $400 I gave him twice that, since its was worth far more then even that. The guy was quite surprised but to me it was the right thing to do.
Maybe I am old fashioned in doing things this way, I guess it was how I was raised. Be true to your word. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Amen brother. Especially on "If I agree to sell at a price, I sell it at that price. If after I hang up the phone someone else offers more, I honor my original agreement." Real simple, are you a dick or are you an honest person? Unfortunately, running into a lot of dicks in this hobby lately. Which is why I choose to hang with the honest people. I'd rather lose $500 then do business with a dick. Just sayin.

Hey all, I have a MET Pro LED run from last year. Thinking of swapping/trading for a Deadpool Pro. MET has a color DMD and is tastefully modded. Would that be a close to even trade for a used DP Pro? On the fence for this, but wanted to know if I was out of my mind.

I'd say yes it's a fair trade imo.

Can any one recommend a reliable tech who services the western suburbs? Not to be offensive, but some one who will actually schedule time to come out and do work. Seems like no one wants to come out here.

This is for my bro-in-law. He has a Strange Science he wants heavily shopped, LEDs, Remote battery, flippers rebuilt, and there were some left over mods from a previous owner he wanted input on hooking up possibly. Whatever else you recommend as well. He has cash and is ready to schedule some one to come out. We are both out near Waubonsie High School off Eola Road for reference. He is looking for an in-house tech to come work. The game is a PITA to get into his office on the second floor. You wont want to move it, trust me.

He has contacted a few guys who I have heard (and told him) are solid, and they respond once and then never schedule him. Hes very frustrated, and I can understand why. I would help him do the work, but I have my own games to manage and I have a baby incoming any day now. Any help is appreciated.

Gavin's game service.

https://www.facebook.com/GavinsGameService/

He's in Scahaumburg. Had him come out a few weeks ago and he did an excellent job. He worked so fast, carries replacement parts on his truck, it was amazing to watch.....flipper rebuild on my FT , some board work on my EK for the chimes, more board work on my Gorgar….. getting ready to have him come out again. Highly recommended. He's usually very busy, but hell get er done.

Quoted from nascarrey:

Gavin is by far THE most knowledgeable and fastest tech in the area (it's mind blowing how quickly he can diagnose problems), but that also means he's often backlogged with work.

Not sure when you tried to contact Gavin, but I know that last week he was out of town, just getting back, from going to a good friends funeral out in Cali, and stayed out with the family out there for a few days

Don't throw it away. Those things are getting harder and harder to come by. I'm sure some video game person will happily take it off your hands for free if you list it on Facebook and/or craigslist.

#7472 1 year ago

Does anyone have any interest, or know someone who may have an interest in a free toy kitchen set. It's in great shape, and comes with a bunch of pots, pans, plates, food, etc ... I was about to take it to Goodwill, but I figured I'd check here first.

Yep, I've had Gavin out on numerous occasions and everything that has been said is true. I found out about him from Terry at Pinball Life.

#7475 1 year ago

Gavin is an incredible tech! He can be a bit hard to get a hold of at times, especially during the summer, but I'm hard pressed to come up with someone in the Chicago area that is better than him at fixing games.

#7476 1 year ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Give him a reminder call. I've had to do that with him. You have to be a bit patient with folks in that line of work. The same with my brother-in-law who does home repairs. They are up to their neck in work. If you are like me and most here, we want it fixed pronto but it doesn't always work that way. Gavin is definitely worth waiting for.

Nice gesture! I donated my daughters Dora's kitchen set to an underprivileged family via the Firebelly foundation. I actually volunteered with my daughter at the event...the look on the girls faces that took it home was priceless.....my daughter noticed that also....life lesson.....

It took Gavin a while to set up an appointment, but the wait was worth it..hope he didn't mind me picking his brain while he was working...lol

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

I would say Rick like others have said. He will get back to you very quickly and set up a time to come out in which he will actually show up when he says he will. As far as Gavin goes, I had nothing but trouble with him following up with me and it strung me along for month. I called for him to take a look at a pin, he said he will call me following week (Monday). I had to call him on Friday cause I never heard from him. He says he will call me again the following week. Never heard from so I had to call him again. This time he actually set a time and day for the now third week after my initial call to come to my house. I took off of work that day and he never showed or called. That was it for me with him. I don’t give a shit how good he is. I have my own business and that is definitely not how to run one.

Just wanted to give a thumbs up to FILAMENTPRINTING based in Batavia IL. They created custom coin door reject buttons and offered a few free to the community to try.

I was able to install them today (stop laughing those that know me). They look really sweet!! I need to take better pics (don't do it justice) but they are that smart little extra to dress up your machine. I installed on AC/DC and STLE. Can't post pics in this thread but will give business review elsewhere. Thanks Jason!

What do you mean by custom? I recently got the injection molded transclucent WPC ones from pinball life which are pretty sweet.

I've been eyeing that No Fear for a while also.....hes dropped the price a couple times already (think it was originally listed at $3000??). Just haven't been able to convince myself to make another road trip to St Louis (that's were I got my FT).
