Strato-flite playfield.jpg

For some reason I have white pops on this Strato-Flite. Maybe some one knows why. I recently put "blue" bulbs in which looks much better.

Wow Boilerman.... Did you clearcoat that playfield or just a champ with the wax?

#7513 3 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

NO clear coat
i use a secret product.

Too funny... Im so ripping off that sign to hang in my kids room. He probably won't get it

Quoted from electricsquirrel:

My first freebee!
My cousin had a Williams Saratoga in his basement for thirty years.
When he found out I was into pinball, he told me to come and get it.
These pix are not my machine, but I'm sure it will clean up this nice!
When I start working on it, will post actual pix.

Very cool!! Are those real flippers in the upper playfield or just guides?

Quoted from NicoVolta:

LOL El Toro... the eternal scapegoat. It's hardly THAT bad. I'd rather have it than Roller Coaster or Stock Car or Aquarius or geez... a lot of 'em. Like the look of it too.
Crazy list. Orbit better than Volley? 4 Million BC worse than Pop-A-Card? We need a few thousand more votes, methinks. :p :p :p

I was feeling a teeeeeeeny bit offended by comments on my prized possession Aquarius lately. I know its not a great player but it holds huge sentimental value to me. Ive lived with it being thought of as bottom of the barrel...... until now!

Post from PAPA 2017 game announcement thread

Just revealed - Classics II - Gottlieb Aquarius

#8113 2 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

i like the game myself, it is no Atlantis but i like the flow.

Im really not all that sensitive about its popularity. If it didnt have sentimental value I would have probably flipped it myself by now as well!!!

Quoted from Darcy:

On that shelf, on the left, isn't that a cigarette holder?
Maybe you can find a nice vintage tray like the one below.

I found one of these in an old shed. Still got it.
I found a vintage airplane ashtray with light once at a customers shop. I offered to buy it. Never saw a guy laugh so hard.

Quoted from embryonjohn:

The rain won't let up as the sump-pump-season just keeps going on and on...
But the forecast is always warm & sunny in the EM room

Beautiful room !! Very envious!!!
And a delicious beverage to go with....

Quoted from DCRand:

Glad to hear 4 Square getting some positive comment. Was my favorite game at the the roller rink as a teen, and was the first game I bought when getting into this hobby just over a year ago and will be the last game I sell. It is not in perfect condition, some small back glass issues, and has the stupid white latex cabinet paint job. I am hoping to strip the latex someday. But play it 2 to 3 times a week.

Glad to see the bumper caps found a perfect new home!

Quoted from Otaku:

I know it happened with Joker Poker EM, that was all the rage about a year and a half ago and now people are recognizing that it's starting to die down a little again.

yea....Those crappy old Joker Poker EM's. Way over-hyped. I hope everyone starts to hate them alot and decide to sell them off cheap.

Id be FIRST in line!!!

Quoted from embryonjohn:

Where does one buy this tool

PBR sell something like it. I finally broke down and bought one after getting tired of messing around with some of the tight holes in backboards. Theyre fairly cheap (as long as you are adding one to an existing order) and work real well. http://www.pbresource.com/tools.html

'70 Gottlieb Baseball that was finished in the spring. Cabinet was a ton of work inside as someone had spilled a Coke on the glass which leaked right through and petrified on the bottom. Common ailment Im sure but really nasty!!
First attempt at webbing with a paint sprayer. Very happy with the outcome.

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

Chum43 looks great did you get the knowhow from restoration threads? I haven't done anything yet but looks like fun.

Yea... a couple guys got me on the right path with the webbing.. Boilerman and SteveinTexas
