I have a VERY RARE Gottleib add a ball pinball Machine, and its a wedge head. Here is what Ipdb said:

Production: 500 units (confirmed)
Theme: Billiards
Specialty: Add a ball

This is a rare pool billiards themed pinball machine less then 500 made way back in 1969 how many can be left? Popular pool theme add a ball machine made for NY and Wisconsin states that outlawed replay pinball machines as a form of gambling. Fun game play as you win free balls. Play forever.

The good:
The cabinet is solid
I believe every lamp lights up, maybe one or two are out
The play-field has no big paint chips missing
The plastics have been cleaned and are in great shape.
The Credit switch works (you can tell when the machine is in tilt, read below)
The back glass is a 7 out of 10, all faces letters and numbers are visible.
Every single rubber and bumper has been replaced. The machine looks very very good. Looks alone Id call it a 8 out of 10

The bad.
The machine gets caught in a reset cycle. It is the ball counter motor running. I do not know the problem, could be a simple spring. Solid state pinballs are more my specialty.

OWN THIS MACHINE TODAY! Send me an offer (I will ship), or trade me for a solid state pinball (local only).

Quoted from the96stang:

The machine gets caught in a reset cycle.

Does wiggling the individual score reels cause the reset to stop?

Its actually a fun game if the flippers are working right. I think it'd have been better if they had backwards flippers in place of the upper slings to be able to target all the stand-ups it has.

Not that I could rationalize getting it here from there - but I would be interested in what you're asking for it - especially of the reel jiggle fixes the reset.

Hey there! Got a moment?
