Selling a nice TOM that I got in a bulk deal along with some other games and I don't need two of them. I've put some time into this game and have fixed all that I can at this point but there is still a few things that need to be done to it or issues that I see with it.
The trunk acts a little "confused" at times, not always but sometimes. From what I can tell it needs a new opto interrupter which can be bought for about $30 and there made out of aluminum instead of the cheap plastic kind that's one it now and is cracked at the set screw which can cause it to not always stop on a dime...
The center ramp is broken/cracked at the entrance (very common) and there available last I knew. Someone put a piece of metal in place to help stiffen it up. It works fine but someone will probably want to replace it at some point.
The spirit ring around the magnet is beat up, looks like someone tried to pry it off the magnet itself with a screw driver and chipped it in several spots. My keeper game has the same thing so maybe its from the ball flying through the air and hitting it?....I'm not sure. But again it's like the center ramp and works fine.
Trap door is loose, not sure what can be done for this since I didn't take it apart but just wanted to point it out. It too works fine.
Now for the good:
Over all the game looks good and works 100% with the exception of the trunk issue and remember that's only at times and can be easily fixed I'm pretty sure with the opto interrupter. The game has LED's throughout, including the GI in both the back box and playfield as well as the feature lamps. Some of the LED's are color changing too. There are I'm guessing eight or so regular bulbs in the game that someone didn't replace with LED's. I just installed a brand new trunk, then played about 20 games and the ball broke a small piece out of it....GRRRR !! Never the less though, it is new and still looks good for the most part. New white flippers installed. Saw blade mod installed that has the writing on the blade and looks very cool compared to the older style. It has a new PinLed board installed for the DMD which couldn't have been cheap. The DMD looks great with no issues. It has a remote battery harness installed off the CPU board and even has the wooden dowels in place for making changing of the batteries easy when it needs to be done next. The boards look clean and I didn't see any hacks at all. New cards installed in the trough cover. Black leg protectors installed. New coin door just installed and I have all the keys for it, along with the manual and cash box.
Price wise I'm asking $5500 as a starting point. With a little bit of more time spent on it this would make a great game for someone. It plays ok now but just have a few issues as stated above. If you want to see pictures send me your real email address and I'll send them to you directly since a lot of times I have problems getting pictures to load up here on Pinside...not sure why but it just doesn't always work well. Not looking for trades, just a straight up sale. As stated above I got this in a bulk deal of games (others are not ready to be sold yet so don't get excited) and I just don't need two of these games.
