    Jon - nice to see you on video. I was at Jackbar for the first time about two weeks ago (wanted to try Dialed-In). Enjoyed the games and the place. And I was amused with your Dr. Dude ramp comments as well (made me laugh). And I bought my first pin from Mike (1980's Williams Blackout).

    Thanks for sharing awesome video. I personally would have liked to have seen more repair work from Mike. I'm very interested in people's work stations and the whole repair methodology. I could geek out on that stuff for hours. I'm very thankful for the knowledge that is passed on here by very knowledgeable and kind people.

    hey don- the video was filmed well before i got the BoP from you. it still sits in the bar, proudly and gets played to death. i haven't done the restore yet. waiting 'til i take it out of operation. but can't wait!

    Nice collection of parts you have I was very impressed. Very cool setup and how lucky are those in your area. Kudos for having your establishment.

    mike hooker here. the short story is back in May they were at my house for 10 solid hrs, filming and re filming everything you could imagine, and 7 months later its distilled to under 5 minutes. i guess you just arent going to see much in 5 minutes. its almost hard to believe you could spend a whole day, pay 3 professionals , all the expensive technical equipment, transportation, editors, support staff , etc to end up with less than 5 min of content. they were very pleasant, and i enjoyed the process, but it seems almost crazy . i gotta get a gig like that

    very cool video!

    thanks for sharing!

    there is a companion written piece i just found on the motherboard website. the guy wrote i was working on a kiss game i was hoping to get 10,000 for. not true, i have no idea where he came up with that. it was a players game, i think i ended up selling it for 1100.

    Cool video, Mike’s repaired my machines half a dozen times over the years when I’m at my wits end and can’t figure it out myself. Last time he was here he gave me an Weller soldering gun (thanks Mike!)that he picked up at a garage sale. I’ve learned a lot by watching him and consider him more of a friend than someone I call to just fix my broken machines

    i wrote the guy and he took out the part about the $ 10,000 kiss game.
