Quoted from pinwiztom:

Not mine, but saw and played it today at CAEX in San Jose.
Bally Six Sticks in primo condition played very well also.

Pretty awesome, first time I have seen one "in the field" so to speak.

One of our lovely staff poses with the machine which currently is hanging out in our physical therapy dept.

On the plus side, if you have a game with broken/missing/incorrect plastics, nobody can tell

Had shipped to me from a Pinsider in Connecticut. Disappointed in the shitty amateurish cabinet paint job (not disclosed it turned into a wrinkle finish). Some day I'll redo it. Removed 7 purple LED's and fixed several operational problems. Cleaned and waxed the play field. Looks and plays great (except for the cabinet paint).

Then yesterday picked up a project from a great local Pinsider. Playfield will clean up nicely. The cabinet, well, see for yourself. I'll be repainting it back to factory. Also has a few missing parts I'll be hunting down. Nice backglass.

Actually I'm looking for Abra Ca Dabra next to them, but Card Whiz would do as well.

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

I had a beautiful original low played Williams Upper Deck and played many other pitch and bats, but Line Drive is on the top of my list. It's for sure a game I regret selling. It has real good bat power and plays much faster than any other EM pitch and bat.

Here are pictures of one I had restored over 20 years ago and put at least 100 hours into. The game had all the male and female connectors cut from a home owner that didn't know how to disconnect the head from the lower cabinet. Once I soldered back all the wires nothing worked right and took me some time to get it to work 100%. I painted the cabinet because it was trashed and did it in the black, red and blue colors to make it look different than the original colors and thought it would stand out in my line up. I also added the artwork inside the playfield side walls and used an auto tape pin striped to bring back the baseball diamond and bases, which were worn out.

While Golden Bells isn't the most manly pinball theme, it is an excellent player.

Golden Bells. I bet it plays fast and snappy with those 50 volt coils.

#11123 1 year ago

Damn Vic_camp I would love to play some of those games in your collection.

I want more em's now. I honestly been playing my full house more than I thought I would.

#11124 1 year ago
Quoted from thestreetzking:

Brought you over to EMside, we did, ummm! (Yoda voice).
The lure of, "Oh! this Game looks Easy".
Many EM pins have that, "I almost got it! Got to push the Replay Again Button One More Time", kind of feel. Although trying to roll the game, with a game that doesn't have an 'Extra Ball Feature', can be almost impossible. 2000 points would be a cause to yell out, jump a bit, and then post it on Pinsides Score section.

I have the AAB version Top Hand and have been thinking of getting a new glass and going through it,
but why I'm mostly posting is back in the mid 80s, I remember spending a few weeks in Dover Plains and remember
this huge massive vintage looking building outside of town. That would be going back toward Albany way..
I still have a couple pics of it on slides. It had to of been something very special back in it's day..

Dover Plains? That's not terribly far from me, and really is nowhere near Albany!

#11127 1 year ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

I had a few weeks of work to do in Dover Plains. Every couple of weeks I would drive back
home to Newark which was Albany way, but 3 hours further West. A few miles outside of
D.P. going in that direction was this huge (not Castle) but something large and every time
I had to take a look. The last and final time going back home (the way as if you were traveling
to Albany), I drove in and took a final close up look. To me it was impressive looking. Albany was
probably a couple hours further, but that's the side of town that this building was on. As if one was
traveling to go to Albany..

PM me and i will put you on my guest list for the next pinball gathering. Your less than two hours away.
Glad to hear your playing the Full House. Williams made some great games in the 1960's. Full House was one of them.

rt 22 is an hour long straight drive which takes you towards albany, im sure the building you are talking about is on there. Unless your talking about the old insane asylum next to the harlem valley train station. I havent lived here for more than a few years but im from the area. The old asylum is now some college center, they are redoing it piece by piece.

Sounds good to me, I saw the distance wasnt bad which is why I said something! haha

There are a few em's close to me for sale but some are priced a little high for non working conditions. Im still on the look out!

I don't remember the train station, but I bet it was the asylum. It doesn't show it all, but this is the building..

What's the titles of those games?
P.S. The next pic I post here will be of an EM Pin. Sorry for the derailment..

#11132 1 year ago

Yea, the slides are clear, but my digital camera's been automatically focusing in and out,
but I'm sure that is the building. Looks much worse than what I remember..
I'd also wait for other pins to pop up to buy..

I'm just down the road from you. Yeah, that place is odd! I love driving past it though.

I'm a fan of the industrial building across the street too. If I had money I'd switch that up into a sweet condo like the Port Chester Lifesaver Factory.

#11134 1 year ago

So, bought my first EM today, Pin Up. Cleaned her up quickly and played a game. Pretty fun! I'm looking forward to giving it a solid once over and maybe some paint touch up.

Here she is before any cleaning.

Damn! Where did you find it? I've been looking for a "Pin-Up" for a friend, and I'm in your area. In fact, I know someone in Brewster who owns one, but be doesn't want to sell it.

Saw a CL ad with one blurry picture and decided "What the hell?" and just decided to go and buy it. Total impulse!

I spent a little time yesterday just basic cleaning and then ran a game to see if she played. Looks like things are working pretty well. It's my garage project at the moment.

After I've had my fun I'll contact you if you'd like. Just send me a PM so I can keep you in my "contacts" for when that happens.

If this goes well my next project will be a bowler.

I really want a bingo machine, I feel like they really have the "one more game" aspect.

A while back, I helped Vic Camp sell off several bingos that a widow had in her basement. I think we moved them all.
They're around, but not many in NY.
Vic could probably find you one, and recommend a good one.

I see you have WMS Trade Winds as well. Any chance you have one for a 3 ball game as all I see is 5 ball?

I don't see any number of ball mentioned on the instruction cards.
If you mean the smaller balls per game card, there are more cards in the ASC cards file.
