WOW does that look nice. Never play one though. How different is it then Pinball Party?
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:
Have a GnR that's in really great shape. A some chew at Axl but not too bad.
I have low ceilings in my basement, and occasionally the metal tabs at the end of a playfield will lightly scrape my ceiling when I get under the hood for repairs. Stern, Bally, Williams, all the same. I CANNOT raid the play field all the way on GnR because the game sits so high in its cabinet. Is this unique to GnR or is this true with DE games in general? I'm going to have to remove the legs to flip up the play field. Total PITA.
Is your ceiling the suspended type?
I know your gonna have loads of fun there.
Quoted from FirebrandX:
PinLED makes new versions of those 128x16 displays, but they are very expensive:
Yeah that is expensive for that small of a display. But if ya need it ya need it.

Great to hear Stu.
Quoted from Yoko2una:
Bought my first pin, DE Simpsons, two weeks ago. Shopped it last weekend and this week it's playing amazingly fast. I only have room for 3 pins at the moment, and was hoping for 3 different era machines. I really thought I was going to have an early SS as my first (WWFRR being my holy grail pin and would cover the 90s era), but when DE Simpsons popped up in my price range, my inner kid kicked in and bought it on the spot... and I'm in love with it.
Though I didn't want to use 2 of my 3 spaces for DE games, I'm always on the lookout for a WWFRR on this thread, so if anyone in New England ever has one, PM me.
Congrats on your first game, nothing wrong with DE games. I have 3 and they are fun.
You might have to make your own using a scroll saw, I've made a few pieces for different games with one and it's fun to do. You want to get Lexan cuz it's tough.
Quoted from Yoko2una:
I was afraid of this. I had looked at a basic scroll saw last week through harbor freight. I'm assuming whipping out the old dremel and making a rectangle and sanding the corners isn't going to cut it (no pun).
If you had a Dremel table, where the bit sticks up, that would work. To get straight lines just clamp a piece of wood on the table to use it like a table saw. I like the scroll saw because it doesn't melt the plastic when it cuts. I also have a belt/disc combo sander and the belt part works great for getting the straight lines straight and the disc part for making the outer curve curved parts nice and curved. Did I say curved enough times there. Those two machines make it easy to make nice plastic pieces. A small drill press is nice to have also.
Yes a fine tooth coping saw works great too, it doesn't generate heat as it cuts that would heat the plastic and bind the saw blade. Good call.
Quoted from TopMoose:
I've decided it's time to say goodbye to my Rocky & Bullwinkle and find it a new home. I'm asking $2800 (which is a lot less than I put into the restoration) but I'm open to offers. Please check out my ad and send me a message with questions or if you'd like more photos. It's posted above, but you can find a video of this machine here:

Dang that's one slick vid. Have you done vid production before.
It shows, I had my own small vid production company for 25 years, non broadcast stuff, that's how I could tell. Beautiful game but I'm trying to sell my LAH to cut the herd and make some room. 16 is just to many for my room. GLWS
These are just a few of the the videos I've produced in the past few years.
Good going, that's triple what I've ever put on that game but you really need a glare guard on it.
Quoted from locustgrovepin:
Ended up rewiring the harness from the transformer up to the back box. Found where there had been overheating in the past and came across a couple wires in the black conduit that had exposed wires I can't believe the game was even working. Someone had over fused it at some point and there must have been smoke rolling out of this thing.
Replaced that burned up power supply with a new one, and now I'm waiting on the left wire form to get back from powder coating.
I could use some replacement plastics for this game if anyone has some they want to sell.
FYI, when you upload a picture there's a box you can select to rotate your picture.
Good ta have ya back.....probably just for a little while.
Quoted from chuckcasey:
I just finished my Torpedo Alley. Being a submariner I knew I'd like the finsihed product but didn't know I'd like it this much. Added the custom parascope topper with a blue GI and two flashers. After two months of love (and money) it ready to play.
WOW!!! More pictures please.
