Quoted from Nihonmasa:

My new toy.
Looking for this specific plastic if anyone has it for sale.[quoted image][quoted image]

PBR, eBay, and pinball rescue all have full sets I looked and couldn’t find individual parts. Pin rescue might be willing to sell you the individual part though since he already does it with other machines

Quoted from RWH:

Love the Four Million BC bg, post some pics of the pf. How's the game play?

It has some great art. It can be frustrating and difficult to score high on despite the zipper flippers. I really like the multi-ball feature. It’s one of my kids favorite games.

Quoted from RWH:

So it has zipper flippers too, sure would like to play one.

Here is a list of zipper flipper games from IPDB:

Quoted from wayner:

I have used a 5c/25c coin plate but will be on the lookout for a 10c/25c version

The machine looks great. Did you use your own stencils or did you buy them? I’m doing a repaint soon. I found a coin plate within a day or so after posting a want ad on here. PBR sells them but it might look out of place. If I can find the guys info where I got it I’ll let you know.

Quoted from o-din:

This is certainly a good one.[quoted image][quoted image]

Nice looking machine. It has great artwork. I’ve never played it though. It looks like a lot of fun. 1960’s games are my favorites.

Quoted from gdonovan:

No real opinion on it yet, the artwork doesn't do anything for me but it does seem rather fun to play. The prior owner hacked in 2 relays and a bunch of wiring to make the game easier to play, I'm in the process of ripping it all at and setting thing right. So far the only thing not fixed is the ball return gate which I'm working on now.

what benefit did the hack provide in terms of game play?

Quoted from illawarra92:

the things you do.
gottlieb play pool, the italian aab version of pro pool.
major project. mechanically complete, missing most of the playfield. came with a 2nd, better condition playfield.
[quoted image][quoted image]

That’s quite the paint job. It looks like the previous owner was showing off their Italian heritage. I kind of like the circles. Is the cab the same way?

Quoted from Mikala:

I have not posted in quite awhile. Thought I would show how you squeeze 8 games in a 12x15’ room. I actually have room for a 9th. Knocked outed the wall behind the row of machines, will be expanding to 16 eventually.
[quoted image][quoted image]

I have roughly the same size space with the same setup.

Quoted from Idahojerry:

4 EMs. Derby Day is a 1956. Family has had it since early 60s. Plays pretty well. Full House is 1964, Skylab 1974 and Liberty Bell is 1977.[quoted image]

Looks like you have room for two more. Just move the ones on the right out of there

Picked this up today.[quoted image][quoted image]

So when are we going to see the rest?

#12512 1 year ago
Quoted from DropTarget:

oh, you want more?[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Nice. Well if you ever come across an extra sling plastic for the right side let me know because mine has a crack in the Fun Park that is currently in my line up.

JR, I found it in NY in some guys barn. The apron was pretty rusty and the legs were pretty toasted. I was lucky to salvage them since they are different bolt spacing than typical pinball legs.

Quoted from jrpinball:

There was one for sale at one of the Saratoga shows. It wasn't up and working. Thought maybe you got it there.
I used to see one on location back in the '70s, but it was always out of order.

I completely understand why it would be out of order frequently. There are three metal fingers under the apron that control the flippers and ball drop that make contact with a circuit board similar to some of the Chicago coin games circuits. If those fingers no longer make contact the flippers and ball drop don’t work. I could see how they could become easily misaligned as a result of the movement of the apron because people are moving the joysticks forward and backward trying to shake it.
