Quoted from jorant:Anyone have any (nice) system 11 games for sale? Looking for Pinbot mostly. Would trade beautiful Hobbit for a couple System 11s. Just loving the shit out of simpler rules, lately.

WIsh I'd known. Just traded off my Radical in a trade for a jjp potc.

If you would have known, what would you have done differently?

#9403 3 months ago

I will be more specific as the system 11s I want.

Pinbot
Funhouse
Whirlwind
Earthshaker
Taxi
Diner

M....mostly pinbot.

#9404 3 months ago

Funhouse

And one WPC game would be cool too?

#9405 3 months ago

Haha. I wasnt aware that wasnt system 11! Then yes, sure.

Anyone want an authentic warped star trek premium playfield? It is in pretty damn new pretry shape except, of course, the idiotic warping. 150 bucks. Pick up only please

Again, use this as a decoration please. For the love of God don't use this to put into a machine.

After all the suffering you went through to get that replaced I would have guessed you used that old one for fire wood by now.

Honestly, Stern was cool in replacing it. As was Mike from GAP in helping me get it replaced despite not being the original owner. Playfield swaps are sorta fun for me, so it was all good considering the alternative.

Star Trek playfield is gone. Sold Hobbit, so now just looking for straight up system 11s or early 90s bally williams. Let me know if you are sick and tired of these games.

#9413 3 months ago

Anyone looking to trade/shake things up? Let me know.
I have a really nice Star Trek Pro I've been considering trading as I only have the space for 4 pins period.
Some quick specs, I'm probably forgetting a few too:

#Vault Edition, Original Owner, everything still stapled to the cab, SAM system which is a plus
#Cliffys on scoop lock/mode start, shooter lane, magnet ring
#Code upgrade to Movie Soundtrack 1.60
#Vengeance lit ring mod
#Enterprise Ship Mod (mounted)
#Black T molding, custom apron cards
#Titan Translucent Rubber Kit and Ice Blue Flippers
#Lit Drain
#Lit Vengeance Drop Target Mod
#Shaker Motor
#Mirror Blades

Overall just a really nice turnkey game, shoots and plays amazing - just wanted to see if anyone local is also looking to mix it up on a straight trade.

My project Future Spa CL ad.
milwaukee.craigslist.org link

Game is sold.

#9415 3 months ago

I already have a Future Spa otherwise I'd grab it. I like how the wires are soldered directly to the lamp
driver board. I bet it took longer to do that then it would have to fix it the right way.

#9416 3 months ago

I totally agree. Some people just can’t do it the right way.

Just an unsolicited vouch for Greg as a good dude who dials his games in wonderfully. When he says turnkey it’s tuned up and good to go.

Sorry for the non-pinball request in advance.

Anyone have a nice Space Duel cocktail they want to sell?

Check out Speed Powder Coatings out in West Chicago. They did two sets of wheels for me last year and they look fantastic.
The owner said they can do smaller car parts as well as gas pump and air meter parts. I haven't actually had them do anything on a pin yet, but if I was, I'd go right to them based on what they did with my wheels.

I will be listing a HOU WOZ ECLE (original owner) and a Safecracker soon (only 1,148 made). Waiting for one repair on Safecracker if I can get my bud Gavin to return my calls.

Anyone hear how Allentown went?

It’s probably because he went to Allentown. He’ll get ahold of you soon I’m sure.

Ever consider Rick Schieve (ricksgamerepair.com) for the repair if Gavin is not getting back to you? Rick is awesome!

Have an idea of an asking price on the Safe Cracker? How many tokens are present? How's the condition?

Agree, Gavin strung me along for a month. Finally gave up waiting and getting blown off on agreed appointments. Called Rick and few days later my machine was fixed.
