It's a beauty! Nice work.

#6102 3 years ago

Thanks! Hard to believe it started as a $75 parts game that I got at the auction but was able to piece it together before the next auction. What a great game it is!

#6103 3 years ago

I have a similar situation with "Free Fall". Always wanted a nice one. I have everything to put together a pretty decent one now. Just gotta get it all together.

#6104 3 years ago

Ding Dong!

Quoted from o-din:

Out of three Skill Pools came one, and now to my standards it is done. It plays like greased lightning and it is fun! What an amazing pinball game it is.

Looks nice and it sounds like a great player. If I ever make it back to Orange County I'll make an appointment......

Hoov, you're welcome here anytime. Nobody else seems capable of keeping the phone lines up. You might enjoy playing that Fun Park too. In the land of underrated, it's leading the charge.

Well Nip-It arrived. Now to fix the smashed up moter relay stack so the game can be playable. I posted in another posting requesting a pic of this relay stack. I would be greatful for a pic of this first stack on the motor. I added a pic of the stack in question. (I straightened it out A LOT)

No wonder that game hardly has any plays on it.

#6109 3 years ago

Yeah, there wasn't a set of keys stuck in that stack was there?

#6110 3 years ago

It looks like somebody was using it as a step stool with the playfield up.

#6111 3 years ago

Oh it was far worse. I should have taken a picture before I straightened some of it out.

#6112 3 years ago

You should be able to adjust those by eye. Just unplug it and turn the score motor by hand in the direction it will turn.

Its blowing a fuse on the balligator, its not resetting, its not counting down the bonus, etc...etc..etc it sat for the better part of 4 years unused. Not sticking my fat fingers in there anymore. I will plan on an appointment from Evan the pinsmith on May15th.

#6114 3 years ago

While dedicating only marginal attention to gameplay this evening, I flipped the ball, with the left flipper. The ball disappeared. It's not in the kick-out hole. It's not in the drain. Where the hell did it go? Well. . .there it is. Go figure?

Did someone pull out the nails? They stop the ball from doing that.

#6116 3 years ago
Quoted from NicoVolta:

The nails are present. The rubber is correctly aligned and the flipper strength is moderate. Strange phenomenon. I guess that I struck a chord instead of a blue note.

#6117 3 years ago

Sounds like the pinball equivalent of blue balls. :p

I wouldn't mind getting a ball stuck every game if I could own one of those! Love the gameplay on this title.

#6119 3 years ago

Don't get the blues over it, put a song in your heart and 'rock on'.

#6121 3 years ago

The is one at the Ann Arbor Pinball Museum.

They sold the replay version to that "play pinball on a train ride" place in PA It's the most ridiculous thing ever

they are in it together they own all the machines, the guy loaned them for the train thing. a lot of those games are going the fl. for the new silver ball I believe.

Nice to see videos of gameplay one day?

Real nice rare games.

#6128 3 years ago

That Thunderbird looks very neat. Great games!

I think a William's woodrail may be in my future.

Here's a fun little row. I like drop targets! They all compliment each other I think with their layout and play. I always start out by playing one till I beat it, then move on to try and beat all three in a row. It's only happened a couple times.

That is a nice little row! All three are great games. Right now Volley is my #1 ranked EM. I've had it a few years now but I have been playing it more than any of my other games lately.

My brother and I did the "pinball train" thing last summer. I thought it was pretty cool. We had the pinball coach all to ourselves. Got to play for an hour before the train departed, then the crazy stuff really began once we got rolling. It's a blast playing pinball in a swaying antique railroad coach as we rumbled through field and farm! It was a unique experience for sure!

#6132 3 years ago

One more for Volley!

#6133 3 years ago
Quoted from Robo1:

Williams 'Thunderbird' woodrail...

I'll take one.

#6134 3 years ago

Yesterday's find.....

Name all of them - should be easy except for the P & B. The Sing along cab has been re-painted.

Is that "Rest In Peace" Snorter or is that comical looking guy "ripping" out the Snorts! LOL
I'd love to have that game just for the title and backglass..Great imagination back then to draw in players!

That's bucket list material for a lot of collectors. Nice find.

Pins are too easy! P&B is Williams "World Series"?

Fireball
4 MBC
Nip it
and that's all I got.

You got 3 of them correct (and Alex (cheater) and JR (knows most pins!) know the rest - ha)

#6143 3 years ago

P&B is Bally Ball Park, I used to have one.

Nice find, I found a 4MBC and F at the same time once too. Great games.

Correct, the Bally Ball Park is circa 1960.

Only one left not named behind Nip It. Clue - it's a GTB 2P

I missed MikeO's post - I bet he knows (and JR and Alex)

#6146 3 years ago

Torchy, Major League '63, Aloha.

#6147 3 years ago

Is that a sample North Star I see?

#6148 3 years ago

delete: answered too late

#6149 3 years ago

I'd love to find me a nice "Aloha". That's a game you don't come across very often. Love the tropical themed games.

#6150 3 years ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

Is that a sample North Star I see?

Good eye picking out "North Star", but that's not a sample game. The sample has the blue stripe to the left of the coin door, and the red one under the shooter. This one looks like a regular production model with the red stripe on the left side.
