Quoted from JayDee:

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.

I've had mixed results with Gavin. I too have gotten strung along at times, and then other times when he came out, he spent as much time play testing the games as fixing them. I appreciate someone who puts a game through its paces rather than assume they addressed the fix, but he literally put up huge GC scores to test things? LOL.

I've had a ton of experience with Rick, and he's as good of a guy as you'll ever meet. Love dealing with him. I've had a lot of success with him on DMD and newer games, but old 80s stuff seemed a little out of his typical scope.

I've also had great results from Phil at Arcades at Home in Romeoville. I'm near him, so I started using him versus Rick driving from so far away. Phil is also super nice and he has a broad base of knowledge across multiple eras of games.

I too love Gavin, but he is very inconsistent (I think he's very overworked). He does more than repairs, he also has a huge pinball route. If only we could clone him

#9453 11 months ago

Hello again everyone. On the hunt for a few games (got the itch again).

Quoted from badbilly27:

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?

PM Sent on the WOZ, a buddy is looking for one and he isn't on Pinside.

Just put my Hot Wheels up for sale.
I bought NiB.

See my ad in the market place.

Great seller. I have been mulling this one over for days. Just learned the rules and they are great. I just need to make space.

#9461 10 months ago

Mando LE posted for sale new in box and still strapped to pallet. Had it delivered to our lake house up north (past green bay) but have truck and can bring it back down here.

Listed at $12,000 OBO which is cheapest option out there right now for a new LE. I can only fit two up north and have been torn of whether to open and keep or sell and keep Aerosmith LE and then the GNR LE that I have coming in October. Thought it made more sense to keep the "rock theme" in that area.

Anyways, if interested or have any questions, let me know.

Added 10 months ago:

New lower price of $11,800 OBO

Not sure why people load games up with mods and then expect someone else to like them as much as they did.

Only mod necessary on game is a pin gulp.

Looking to trade my Hobbit LE for something different. Will make the trip to Chicagoland to sweeten the deal.

#9485 10 months ago

Selling my Flash. Light project Flash pinball. Overall very good condition. Playfield is very nice with a little wear. Backglass has some paint flaking but very presentable. Cabinet is very nice. A couple of bumps but color is real nice. The game has been updated to a System 7 cpu board, was a System 4 with all modifications done (not by me). I shopped the top side of the playfield. Cleaned all plastics (top left is broken), posts, pop bumper caps (put leds in them), all lights working, all switches working including drop targets. Game worked at that point. A few days later went to work on underside of pf. Turned game on. Came up with 04 in ball in play. Turned game off and on a few times to see if it was battery issue. Nope. Have manuals and coin box. Time to move on. Game is taken apart and in garage for easy loading. Have pics. $875

Going to have a very nice, all original Bally Dolly Parton up for sale soon here. Backglass is 100% Mint. Solid cabinet with excellent colors. Minor fade on the right side by the flipper button. Playfield is very nice. About a quarter size wear at the right sling because the mylar was never installed. Excellent colors on the playfield as well. Just re did the power supply with new pins and connectors. Going through all the boards now. All displays bright and crisp, no burned digits. Original MPU with zero acid damage, battery is long gone. Sound board works. Have not decided to shop the playfield or not. A buyer may want this to touch up and clear the playfield. I know it crossed my mind.

Did you know there was a banned episode of Twilight Zone?

The Encounter" is episode 151 of the American television series The Twilight Zone. First broadcast on May 1, 1964, its racial overtones caused it to be withheld from syndication in the U.S. On January 1, 2016, the episode was finally re-aired as part of Syfy's annual Twilight Zone New Year's Eve marathon.

At $500 the guy probably had 100 people messaging him within 10 minutes of listing it. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if a dozen people offered him at least $1,000 for it sight unseen.
