    Mine is a work in progress

    Looks like it's going to be a great space. How many games will you be able to get in there?

    Max around 16 but going to keep it around 10 with a few arcades and other bits

    Welcome to PS. You'll have to get your first game first.

    Quoted from Dooskie:

    Have you somehow sealed the autographs on the ball washer so they don't fade away or accidentally get smudged?

    Im guessing it doesnt actually get used.

    Quoted from Roostking:

    Im guessing it doesnt actually get used.

    I'm sure it doesn't. However, even sitting on display in your house, there is the chance that someone is going to touch it or accidentally rub against it. That was my point.

    #7612 2 years ago

    Then be prepared to spend every other thought consumed with pinball. Enjoy the ride,and be prepared for all the ups and downs. Ex. I went to do a simple wipe down clean on my new game and broke a switch. Now I wait for part and get to solder new switch.

    Quoted from Dooskie:

    I actually talked with a vice president at Par Aide after I got it and he said he also has one and that as long as it doesn't have direct sunlight, it should be fine. I too thought I would need to put some kind of clear coat on it to preserve the autographs, but 4 years later, it looks the same as the day I got it. The one that sits outside during the summer, I actually wax to keep it looking good.

    #7617 2 years ago

    Depends on who you ask. Contrary to what the wife thinks, there is always room for one more.

    #7618 2 years ago

    Looks like you could get another 20 in there

    Three straight gamerooms with the Sopranos. Love it!!

    Hey guys - I just moved into a house with an unfinished basement. Any advice on the electrical? I have heard 3 pins per 15 amp circuit in the past.

    Any advice on a cut off system that protects the pins, but does not require me to unplug them all the time?

    I'm going to be finishing a blank canvas shortly myself. But, I'm not sure what you mean by cutoff system to protect machines. Do you mean to prevent damage by lightning or other electrical surges? Or something else? I know I don't keep my pins unplugged at home.

    How many of your games are completly led? That makes a BIG difference. Do you have a Kill-a-Watt measuring device?

    #7625 2 years ago

    I currently have five games and two puck bowlers on a single 20 amp circuit, with no issues whatsoever.

    I did, however, LED all of these machines including the bowlers, so the current consumption is significantly lower than the standard setup.

    I will be adding yet another pin (GB PRE) to the lineup so there will be six pins and two bowlers on a single circuit. Mathematically, this lineup will max out the 20 amp circuit at that point.

    #7626 2 years ago

    80% capacity is the recommended limit for any kind of power system, so i wouldn't go past 16a on a 20a circuit.

    #7627 2 years ago

    Yep, I'm putting a watt meter onto the main power panel, with a digital display where I can view it outside of the utility room (weekend project just waiting for "the weekend"). This will give me an exact picture on where the power is being used.

    The entire game room is 2900 sq. ft. with a 100 amp service panel divided into 16 circuits, and every light in the room is LED...it'll be interesting to see where the power goes.

    If I get too close to the 80% margin, I can split the feeds into two circuits which will resolve any issues, but so far, it's got enough wiggle room for the circuit.

    DO NOT ever clear coat an autograph. It will ruin any value that it has. In the autograph collecting world, this is the worst thing anyone can do to an autograph. The best thing for an autograph to keep it's integrity is to put it into a very dark closet to avoid all UV lighting, including those UV rays from artificial sources.

    So, in other words, never look at the object again, this will preserve the integrity of the ink pigment. Make a padded box for the signed article, paint the inside of the box black. And mount the item in the box so as to not allow it to touch anything. Then place the box in a plastic sealable bag, place that bag in another sealable bag. Place the final item in a padded treated crate that is nailed shut, then screw the crate into the floor of a climate controlled closet, set the temperature to 73 degrees, and research what humidity is best for preserving the item and ink with the ink manufacturing company and the items manufacturers, and set it as such. Place a set of 4 servailence cameras on the closet and inside the closet with a monitoring system (including an off site video backup system) mounted in a safe and secure servailence room. Be sure your smart phone can call up the video feed from anywhere. Lock the closet door, and place motion sensors and alarms on the door.

    Next is to secure your walls, doors, floors, ceilings and windows with steel barricades, and place broken glass shards cemented into your roof. Oh, and don't forget to treat for termites.

    Quoted from dyopp21:

    Built an 8ft bar out of two old playfields and playfield glass. Installed GI lighting and LED sequencers for the inserts.

    That is an incredibly smart idea. I am going to borrow it and I hope you won't mind. I have a few Playfields (SilverBall Mania, Playboy and others) with no cabinets. They will be perfect.

    Great idea for the stamps. I just wish the USPS artist would consider it.

    With all 14 of my games and black lighting on the wheel inside the meter only take 5 seconds to go around compared to 19 when everything is off. Probably only takes a second to go around when all the games are being played.

    That's one heck of a beach. Is the tide out? that's a long way to the water.

    #7642 2 years ago

    You think that's long way to the water, the tide goes out a mile and a half where my parents live!

    This video was filmed from their garden:

    #7643 2 years ago

    That beach is pretty much standard size like what we have around here. But, as nice as the beach is, like a lot of people we are looking at ways to get out of CA. One place I have been checking out is Montana. I saw a place for sale on Zillow for a reasonable price that has a grass landing strip and an airplane hangar. Now I guarantee you, I will never fly my own plane. So the question is, does this space look like a possibility for something else?
