    I'm thinking of what I'd like to get for Christmas and need some ideas for EM tools, parts, et al.

    What's on your EM Christmas wish list this season?

    O-Din's Teacher's Pet.

    I need three bumper caps and a tilt bob!

    #4 4 years ago

    my gf is a bit of an artist having won a few awards with some art competitions and i asked for playfield touch ups on my king of diamonds

    #5 4 years ago

    I would love to find a reasonably priced EM Evel Knievel.

    1977 Williams RANCHOOOOOOOOOOO!

    #7 4 years ago

    A nice Gottlieb Orbit would be near the top of the list. A project Fire Queen that I could pop my populated playfield in would also be nice.

    #8 4 years ago

    1961 Williams Space Ship. Love the back glass artwork, plus the game play. Fun machine

    Quoted from fireball2:

    O-Din's Teacher's Pet.

    I just got one last week.

    nice collection Alex F! i was in a garage a couple of weeks ago and saw a head only of that little pro. i truthfully forgot the name of the game.. your collection reminded me.

    #11 4 years ago

    Thanks I consider the 4 games pictured my Williams collection. Southland Little Pro sort of counts as the company was started by Harry Williams and it has Williams components.

    ...in a pear tree!

    #18 4 years ago

    Yes time to work on the projects... North Star repaint, Ks&Qs repaint, Ks&Qs pf swap, 2 of those to do. Diamond Jack pf swap. Central Park to restore.

    #19 4 years ago
    Quoted from AlexF:

    I just got one last week.

    Oh, that looks good there! Nice to see you found a decent replacement for Serenade.

    I'll keep my wish list short and sweet-

    Sea Wolf and
    Steeple Chase

    Now that's not too much to ask for is it?

    12 LEDs lighting
    11 posts shining
    10 inserts glowing
    9 rollovers rolling
    8 targets dropping
    7 rubbers bouncing
    6 plastics showing
    5 coats of clear
    4 bumpers popping
    3 gates opening
    2 flippers flipping
    And a perfect backglass in the backbox

    I don't see it, but if he ends up with that Ten Spot it will be like a bunch of hipsters just moved in.

    A new building to house more pins!

    Quoted from hoov:

    Then you'll want more pins, a never ending viscous circle we'll play until we die and then the wife sells them off at 10 cents on the dollar...

    Just sayin..

    I suppose the 12 and 11 are for 12 more rooms and 11 more Excedrin for all the extra work?

    Thanks for your contributions this year.

    I would buy that single then a juke box to put it in.

    #34 4 years ago

    Would have to be a pretty big tree to fit what I need underneath it...

    A 'game room' to house my pins, so I can have them all up at the same time.

    Hey, almost had a call down your way today, but didn't have to go after all. Happy Holidays to you as well!

    For Christmas I'd like a nice Woodrail to go with the one I have.

    A Dremel kit is on my Christmas wish list and I'm getting that but I'm looking for something else for Christmas that I can use for my EM hobby.

    I'll put the flippers where they go tomorrow. It's late. Happy holidays!

    #38 3 years ago

    Very cool machine! Best of luck with it

    Coincidentally, this week Santa also sent me a "Steeple Chase." Not the same game as yours - but a 1932 Exhibit Supply horse themed trade stimulator.

    Happy Holidays

    Christmas arrived yesterday in the way of a Dremel and accessories.

    Now I'm wondering if there's a powered cordless flexible shaft screwdriver I can get for working under the playfield. Not a Dremel accessory. (Using the dremel as a screwdriver would burn it out I'd think?)

    Is there such a thing?

    Happy Holidays

    I changed the topic title because I need ideas for EM gifts.

    My wife and I agreed that whatever we spent for her Christmas gifts. I would get the same value for my EM gifts.

    I've gotten a Dremel kit but I still have about $150 for other EM Christmas gifts.

    Any ideas? What would YOU give an EM Pinsider for Christmas?

    #47 3 years ago

    A gallon or two of Evaporust, a section of 4" PVC pipe & a couple of glue on end caps. This stuff is the bomb for removing rust.

    without that tool, a swap would be a pain in the arse!
