Quoted from Hwawonyu:
I saw an MM sell for more than someone bought it last year. Let's go get them !
Can't believe these guys are crapping on your thread. As I say and it always proves itself true, karma is a bitch. It will come back to them .
Good luck with the sale. I have played this game and its worth its price.
Pins appreciating? Unheard of. Especially not CC, MM or MB.
I can believe it and wondered when he was going to rear his ugly head again. It was just a matter of time. If you recall, the end of last year when I had the health and tax issues, I thought I need to sell the game shortly after buying it. I contacting him about the others who inquired and offered more and ultimately I think offered to share the profit with him since he did sell me the game when he had been offered more. I did make an error in asking him to provide me the details of the others, but I acknowledged that. What a travesty that thread became!
Unfortunately, and although I cannot speak for others, it seems to me that Dan has a few issues, and as much as I am annoyed with the guy for having a negative effect on this thread, his behavior is so sad that I do feel sorry for him. I cannot speak for his friend who sold him the game and the "ethics" he espoused. What I do know is that he did not volunteer what he paid for the game or sold it for. Hopefully these two guys are not indicative of the pin community in Idaho.
The game did not come in best playing condition. Gave it a quick cleaning. Fully relamped the game. Fully rebuilt the flippers. Disassembled and cleaned and adjusted the Bart and Mine assemblies and ball trough. Modded the place where the ball would hang up behind Bart. Adjusted the pops, so they have more action. Adjusted the auto trough and shooter lane switch as things were not operating too smoothly there. Installed the Gold Mine Cliffy that was included and bought and installed Cliffies at the Bad guys. Replaced the shooter rod with the one with the round silver ball handle as the coating off the old one was worn and did not work smoothly. Wired and installed a real knocker. Cleaned or replaced all the coils sleeves that had been gummed up by oiling them.
There were a lot of issues with the game that affected game play detrimentally. Some of that was expected, but Bart insisting to hide in the left corner and barely moving, or an autoplungner that is so off that it cannot send a ball back in play that you have to plunge it manually. These things were obvious and should have been disclosed to me but weren't.
The next owner will not have to deal with any of these issue. If the next owner goes with CCC, the sound board has already been modded. The game is in much better condition than when I got it.
I appreciate the bump.
