Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Here is a picture of the originals
[quoted image]

Yeah, that's the same as my original.

#3102 1 year ago

Setting up the pivot brackets for drilling now.
The left inner is a perfect template for the right inner if mounted outside.

#3103 1 year ago

Playfield is test fit.

#3104 1 year ago

Never thought I would be jealous of another man's wire spools.

#3105 1 year ago

Big Time cabinet is gutted of all useful parts and ready to take back over to the warehouse. image (resized).jpg

I will build up and wire a coin door assembly next and start working through the transformer panel.

image (resized).jpg
#3106 1 year ago

Playfield is removed from the cabinet now and I will take some parts off to be nickel plated. image (resized).jpg

I will also go through the wiring and fix as much as I can without just stripping it and redoing it entirely.
That is something I could do and justify but knowing someone already paid a premium for the game I am going to try and salvage as much.
Things like this must go. image (resized).jpg
image (resized).jpg
They are shorts that are just waiting to happen.

#3107 1 year ago

It always amazes me that someone would do a cabinet and playfield swap but not change the coil sleeves.

#3108 1 year ago

Wow. Sad sign of the “doll collector” direction this hobby has gone in. Your games are beautiful inside and out.

#3109 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

A new heavy duty cord is used and new line filter. [quoted image]
Extended wiring and thoughtful placement allows me to install it in a more ideal place. [quoted image]
The cord is a good length as well.
[quoted image]

the corcom line filters can be found here:

newark.com is about $3 ea cheaper than digi-key

#3110 1 year ago

Got the latest MM finished up.

Put the other in the vicinity it needs to be in.
They weigh 200lbs and just the wife to help. image (resized).jpg
Weather hood is back from powder coating.

#3116 1 year ago

Packing MM and making room for TZ.

#3117 1 year ago

I might have missed it, but is this addition going to be the spray booth?

#3118 1 year ago

At the warehouse Packing the MM

#3119 1 year ago

ES is the latest arrival

image (resized).jpg
#3120 1 year ago

Did the ES arrive standing on it's legs? How often do you receive games like that?

#3121 1 year ago

What is that contraption on TZ?

#3122 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

The ramp has the initial cut and fit checked.
[quoted image][quoted image]

You reckon you can part with those dr who ramp decals?

#3123 1 year ago
Quoted from chad:

Cooling fan?

#3124 1 year ago

TZ is unloaded
image (resized).jpg

Back to Fathom for a bit

I want to swap rusty parts out for nickel plated.

#3125 1 year ago
Quoted from yancy:

Cooling fan?

Looks like it. From a beer cooler.

#3126 1 year ago

Stuff going out. image (resized).jpg

Still working on it inside and out.

What are you doing with a Munsters NIB? Or did someone just ship a pin in a Stern box?

#3129 1 year ago

Not a Munsters Premium

Something even better
A new HARLEM Globetrotters cabinet

2330CC27-AEB7-4209-BDEB-15B1FF8818D0 (resized).jpeg
#3130 1 year ago

Now just about finished wiring up a door for the Fathom.

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#3131 1 year ago

Edit: nevermind! But I'll go ahead and leave the advice here for any other Munsters owners.

If you're tweaking that Munsters premium for a customer, I have one very specific piece of advice. On the lower playfield, fast shots to the right ramp will jump the opto 90% of the time. (Backhands are the fast shots. It's tough to make that ramp at all from the tiny left flipper.)

For my friend's LE, we wedged a small piece of clear plastic over that part of the ramp as a ceiling to force the ball down and break that opto on every shot. I'm sure your solution would be more elegant.

#3132 1 year ago

Back at the warehouse.
Playfields are stacking up again.
If you have an interest in any of these text me 704-351-2014

Diamond Plated Whirlwind.
Medusa’s 2 of them
Joker poker
Mirco AFM blemished inserts but brand new.

Marshall will be 19 on Easter Sunday.
Going to celebrate his birthday tomorrow so he can enjoy both the birthday and Easter independently.
Even though he is technically going to be 19 he is probably on about a fifth grade level so it is still like having a much younger child as a result this is the cake he wanted. image (resized).jpg

My parents sent him a card with a couple hundred dollars in it. He doesn’t read the card and would throw the money away if we didn’t intervene.
image (resized).jpg

There is something really neat about that view of money in my eyes. So many people are ruled by it but to have no concept or care about it at all?Cool!
I have had one of his gifts stashed in my toolbox all month.

#3134 1 year ago

AFM is on on hold pending payment.

#3135 1 year ago

Happy Birthday, Marshall! My kids birthday is on Easter, too. I'm planning an egg hunt mixed with finding their hidden presents. Eggs will have clues in them. Even though my kids are teenagers, they still love that stuff.

#3136 1 year ago

You can tell him that's a Marshall amp on the cake!

#3137 1 year ago

Thanks guys.
Marshall loves rock and roll and heavy metal music.
He laments and chants half the day about how he both loves rock and roll and hates rap.
Kid has no filter at all can be a challenge at a restaurant or the grocery store especially these last 10 years

#3138 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Now just about finished wiring up a door for the Fathom.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Nice! Are you using new door skins? I got one from Marco and it doesn’t look near as good as that one.

Then he is just like my 75 year old mother

Happy Birthday to him!

#3140 1 year ago

Got this email from Amazon and it is so tempting to answer.
450EB70E-5779-4E13-BA7D-A5CA7ED7EEC3 (resized).png

My answer would be

“No but it will definitely clean a dirty pussy”

Seriously why in the hell would someone even ask or consider using this product for that purpose?

#3141 1 year ago

We live in an interesting world.

#3142 1 year ago

this is why they have to put obvious things in the warning labels.

#3143 1 year ago
Quoted from bflagg:

Nice! Are you using new door skins? I got one from Marco and it doesn’t look near as good as that one.

Yes. I get them from Marco as well and half the time they are scratched up which really pisses me off and defeats the purpose of buying one.
They come with the sticky film on them so you really don’t know what you’re getting until you peel it off and clean the glue residue off.
That being the case I buy an extra just in case.

#3144 1 year ago

Fathom has anew door and frame installed on the HEP cabinet.

#3145 1 year ago

Really looking forward to the earthshaker build as I'm currently restoring one

Where did you get the HG cabinet? Would love to restore mine, I think a new cab would be better than trying to save the water damaged one I have.

#3147 1 year ago

TZ is set up.

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#3148 1 year ago

Interesting...modded TZ...wonder which direction this is going and if all the mods survive!!!!

#3149 1 year ago

Mods survive... bah! Throw those mods in the trash. The customer is always right though!

#3150 1 year ago

Ready to gut the TZ.

I like to start in the head because it frees up a lot of the wiring.
This game has lots of wiring to sort out and already has two Rottendog boards. Hopefully they are solid and trouble free.
