The Taito, Ice Cold Beer for sale on Craigslist is mine.

Quoted from Mr68:

The Taito, Ice Cold Beer for sale on Craigslist is mine.

sent you an email on craigslist about 40 minutes after you posted it, probably not quick enough lol. I want it if still available.

#2203 2 years ago

I just saw that. I'm only taking back up offers right now.

#2204 2 years ago

Is there a specific donation link for selling games if you didn't place an ad? Or do you just donate in general?

#2205 2 years ago

Don't know?

Quoted from Wickerman2:

I have a NGG and a Whirlwind I may be selling. I am just up I-25 from RMPS.

#2206 2 years ago

OK. I am donated the amount listed in the tier of the game I sold as a "general" donation to pinside. This is my public notice.

#2207 2 years ago

Pretty sure its done by the honor system and you don't have to publicly disclose but, atta boy.

#2208 2 years ago

I sent you a sincere apology more than a week ago which you have chosen to ignore. And instead, it would seem you'd prefer to snipe at me on Pinside and pick little fights.
We can continue in this manner if you choose but I'd prefer not to. Unlike you, I will gladly accept your email or you can meet me at the Denver show and talk it out.

WTH are you talking about?

Relax Kim. Not sure what fight you are picking with someone again but based on your previous transgressions of confronting people at pinball shows, it is not cool to be insinuating you will be doing it again...

Just leave it alone and stop making a big stink about everything!!! People go to pinball shows to relax and have fun, not to have to worry that you are going to come verbally confront them in person.

not sure where the content went, but nobody wants another Aurich confrontation situation to deal with when at a pinball show

Typical Whysnow exaggeration. One of the many reasons nobody believes or trusts you on Pinside. I'll let entirety of my comment stand and people can judge for themselves if I was threatening or not. They will also judge you and your propaganda.

I seriously have no idea what you are talking about. Where did I "prefer to snipe at me on Pinside and pick little fights"? This is the part of this forum that I don't like at all.

#2213 2 years ago

Excuse me ladies, this is a Fs/Ft thread.

#2214 2 years ago

Get a room right? (this is the most action the fs/ft thread has had in months sadly!)

Sold the Whirlwind.

#2215 2 years ago

Nice-The Hobbit is in the near future, kids will be pumped

Also heading to Showdown Friday afternoon and still have an Elvis for trade or sale if anyone is interested.

#2216 2 years ago

Been kicking around the idea of selling Luci this month. Will probably list an ad next week.

#2217 2 years ago

GOT pro will be on the showdown floor and possibly for sale at the showdown.

#2218 2 years ago

Loving ours (LE number 874). It's a great game. And new software coming soon (apparently). It's a beautiful game, with lots to explore.

Day late on the Whirlwind, darn it.

#2222 2 years ago

Pinball showdown Pinside meet and greet change of plans..

Change of venue. Chillies decided to be dicks after talking to them last week, they won't us do a group res anymore on Friday night. So I upgraded our room to a suite, and will have the meet and greet there. Will bring in food and beer and such. Also will bring some games including one of the two attack from mars remakes into the room. Room 428 at 6pm!

#2223 2 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

I have 3 sets of "Poop Bumpers". These are vinyl toilet decals. Novelties obviously. Two flippers decals on the seat and a pop bumper decal on the lid. And it says, Poopbumper 1000
I have a few Glare Guards, *widebody only*. Please, only ask for what you need so I can get these out to as many people that need them.
Lastly, I have backboard mirrors that I named, Pinfinity Mirrors back in the day if you remember them. I have them for following games.
Stern Spiderman
Addams Family
Guns n Roses
Mirrors are plastic, an easy install and a reversible mod. And they really give the back of the game a very cool depth perspective.

Last call if you want any of these items. I have everybody's order packed that have contacted me and I will be dropping them off at Comet Pinball's booth later today or tomorrow. And as I've already posted, I will be leaving extra wide body Glare Guards so swing by the booth and pick one up.

Looks like I'll still have some left over freebies after this so if you're ever in the Boulder area swing by and play my collection. Or let me know and I can relay the items to you via my friends, Kevin Carroll at Lyon's Classic or Dan Gutches of the One Up or JJ at the Game Exchange.

Enjoy the show and I hope to see you there. Hit me up for an argument or a misunderstanding if you like.

Somebody "keyed" my backglass at RMPS! Bunch of fairly deep scratches in a 3" or so square. Stay classy Denver

Bit "unusual" to say the least.

Man, that just sucks. Hope somebody comes up with a lead, takes a true sociopath to deface a game that the owner dragged all the way to a show to share with the public.

Sold NGG via CL. Still looking for a Hobbit.

#2238 2 years ago

Would love to get this sold/trade local.

#2239 2 years ago

Anyone in CO looking to unload a Shadow, Ripley's or Fish tales?

#2240 2 years ago

Disassembling my R&B playfield to swap in a new WABAC ramp, and the remaining ramp is looking pretty dingy by comparison. Anyone in the Denver area experienced with flame polishing and willing to take on what would hopefully be a straightforward clean and polish job (or can you recommend someone that does this type of work)? The ramp has several underside decals that would need to be avoided. Thanks!

#2241 2 years ago

I've flame polished several ramps and the results are spectacular. But I had one close call long ago that scared me enough that I'm not willing to risk damaging someone else's ramp by my mistake. And I don't know of any one who provides a service.

There are plenty of videos out there to teach you and that's how I learned. Its not that difficult to do, you just need to be careful.

Call me if you decide to try it as I have some great tips I can pass along to you. Too much to write about here and I can go into much better detail over the phone. Anyone interested is welcome to contact me if they want to give it a try.

Two things I will tell you. Make sure the ramp is as clean as possible otherwise you will melt dirt into the plastic. And keep the flame moving at all times.

Here's a couple of video's. Google for more results: Pinball flame polishing Ramps

#2242 2 years ago

It is one of the simplest repairs technically but also one of the easiest to 'f' up. you may want to practice on an old junked ramp. If you allow for too much heat from the flame it will warp and put tiny airbubbles into the plastic. So if you do it, you will want to take long breaks between 'passes' with the torch so the plastic will cool.

I bought a new Taxi ramp so i used the old one as practice. I thought I was being very conservative, but didn't allow enough time between passes to cool and a couple areas got too hot.

You can buy a benzomatic torch that has an on/off trigger. These work well because they are easy to control. Also recommended is a small kitchen-style torch that is used for dishes like creme brulee. The smaller size allows for more focus of the flame.

#2243 2 years ago

I am going to be selling my Twilight Zone (waiting on a few new chips for the sound board to be replaced before listing). It's a really nice condition game with a gorgeous playfield and some extras installed. $6800/obo is what I'm looking to get for it...

#2244 2 years ago

I attempted to flame polish once. A tiny hairline crack turned into a two inch hole in a matter of seconds. Be careful and take it very slowly with heat. Better to do a hundred times to get right than to destroy your ramp!

#2245 2 years ago

Looking for an Elvira and the party monsters

#2246 2 years ago

For cracks or broken plastic there is a liquid bond that can be applied. A few choice's out there but I've had good success with Ambroid ProWeld

Flame polishing is only for surfaces scratches. Deep scratches such as the main ball trail will be greatly reduced, nearly imperceptible, but not removed completely. You'll know its still there but not from the players position and your friends will think you bought new ramps.

These kind of stories make me very nervous about taking a torch to my ramp, so I'm still hoping to find someone local who will do the job for hire!

#2248 2 years ago

Looking to trade my Dragonfist toward a Stargazer or Fathom.
Also thinking about trading/selling my Banzai Run, pretty rough PF, so value it around 2500-3k

Quoted from fosaisu:

As he learned the hard way, you can not flame "Polish" a crack. No offense Komolo, its humble of you tell the story for others to learn from.

One of my tips for flame polishing is that you hold the ramp with your bare hand on the bottom and sides directly where the flame is being applied. Assuming you have nerve endings that work, that will be your alarm system to back off and its dummy proof.

Here's a suggest. Go to a plastic manufacturing company and get some free scraps to practice with. They have bins for give away or at least the one in Louisville did. Maybe take your ramp along and ask them to diagnose the type of acrylic or whatever it is and get scraps of that.

You can do it and being nervous about it will probably help you be careful. I was nervous my first time also after the scare stories.
