Quoted from Gryszzz:

If I'm gonna get my ass spanked, I prefer it be by pretty ladies.
[quoted image]

I received two of my three B bracket strikes from these ladies! Luckily, I rallied. What a great tournament it was!

Wait a second. What? That just made me reconsider checking it out. My knees hurt just looking at those pics!

#207 11 months ago

The pinball machines look great Bud. Wow! Hope 2019 goes well for you with pinball in the Indy area.

The wooden 4-drink holders look nice as well.
I assume the drink holder stands are easily moveable and free-standing, correct? (not taped down w/ dbl-sided tape or velco/tape).
Some players may prefer the drink holders placed by the sides of the machines near the front legs.

They are easily movable, they can be moved under the pin, the side of the pin or anywhere else desired. They are light, sturdy, stable and durable.

#209 11 months ago

That is awesome! It has been a little while since I have been in. Going by your wall art, do you have Alien?

#210 11 months ago

Wow, you have some awesome pins there. Wish I was closer.

#211 11 months ago

Dude, Bud, you have outdone yourself! Will be coming by Wednesday night to put up some scores! What an amazing lineup for the public to play!

#221 11 months ago

Munsters catch your eye, Bud?

#222 11 months ago

Paid a visit to Tappers for 2hrs this week. The wife and I played about half the games available.

The machines are all immaculate, well shopped, and with new rubbers. Highlights were the POTC LE, Dialed In, Bride of Pinbot 2.0, and The Walking Dead premium. The JJP pins volumes were cranked up and sounded great, lots of bass. The Stern machines all looked basically brand new. I really liked the detached cup holders, they did not interfere with play at all. FYI, all of the tilt bobs are set TIGHT.

Didn't get any permanent high scores, but nailed a few daily high scores on the JJP pins (take that Smaug!) I'll be there Sunday for the first Kingpin tournament, can't wait to put up some more scores!

#224 10 months ago

expensive looking drink holders, wouldn't plastic leg ones been a lot less work and cheaper? killer line-up

#225 10 months ago
Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

They are expensive, but.... there is place for 96 drinks, the legs and machines aren’t crowded with crap hanging off the bolts, it looks classier this way and these can be moved around if desired. Also don’t get drinks spilling down the legs. I think if you were to buy 96 pin gulps you’d spend a lot more money and could only install two per pin.

Hitting up Centerpoint and Tappers tonight!

#231 10 months ago

Tappers looks great, all the machines are super nice. Black Circle Brewery is upping their game. Also pins being put into a barcade in Anderson, and around 16 pins going in Castleton Mall next month. Sinking Ship is expanding from 8 pins to 11 in the next few weeks as well. Lots of great pinball going down around town. Love it.

#232 10 months ago

Indianapolis pinball rules now. You're all doing a great job!

#233 10 months ago

I should mention the PinVault 3-year anniversary is First Friday, ya'll.

Me too. It's gorgeous.

#236 10 months ago

bud your tappers machines are gorgeous! How do you get your metal siderails and lock down bars so clean?

Also, wish the flippers were slightly adjusted up so flipper catches are more likely. I think they are supposed to be adjusted so the upper flipper surface are in-line with the adjacent guards or so they touch touch a toothpick stuck in the little holes below the flippers when the flipper rubbers are on.

Thank you, I adjust the flipper bats with rubber on to be inline with the ball guides, as far as flipper cradling, it’s all about the coil stop. There are 3 different sizes from the 80s to the end of the Bally/Williams machines. The wpc95 had the shortest strokes due to deeper coil stops.

Let me know what pins specifically you are talking about and I’ll check it out

Cool. Thank you for putting your imaculate machines out in the wild.

Flipper bats: Indiana Jones, Theatre of Magic, Circus Voltaire were the ones i noticed the most.

Also...I noticed the other day that Batman 66 turntable wasn't, well, turning. Kept saying to hit the Batphone but it would never spin into place.

Again, great collection there. I was in awe just looking at everything.

Yeah, it started doing that with the last code update. The only thing I know to fix it is power cycle the machine. If you know of any other fixes let me know please

#242 10 months ago

I was in last week and they are nice. Where did you get them or did you make yourself?

I don't own one, wish I did! If you ever get bored of that one, you have a buyer in me. LOL

Nice edition to the lineup!

#247 10 months ago

Thanks for sharing all of these excellent pins to Indy Bud! Played here a couple of weeks back, all machines in stellar condition. Spend about 20 bucks on Metallica alone. Did have a slight issue with Star Trek though. Ball got stuck in shooter lane just above the cliffy on the left side. It wouldn't fall back into the plunger no matter what I tried. I tried to gently nudge it out, but it didn't work so it just stuck there. Seemed like there might be a lip on that shooter lane protector cliffy that caught it up. Nonetheless, my favs were Fish Tales, TWD, MET and WOZ. Champion Pub was a sleeper too.

I’ll fix Star Trek, thanks for the coin drop, glad you enjoyed it!

Awesome collection there. I need to get by Tapper's at some point. I have a Stern POTC, but really want to try out the JJP version. Moved to Indy last year from St Louis. Over there, they have a place called CP Pinball. Has about 80 machines, only open on Sat from 12-12, but $5 per hour or $20 for all day. It was a lot of fun, and it is good to know we have some nice pinball locations here in Indy. Need to check them out. Keep up the great work guys!
