20 years in a tub, what a life!
Quoted from yzfguy:
Not to point out the obvious, but those games could be moved closer together!
Spacing is perfect! I hate it when games are shoved too close. You can't enjoy the cabinet or backbox art and I hate it when the guy playing next to me encroaches on my personal flipper hand space!
The better solution is to build a bigger game room! By the way, how big is the current room?
Quoted from Enaud:
...The pin addiction started about 9 years ago when I restored my old pachinko machine that Santa brought me back in the 70's.
Santa brought me one of those too back in the 70s! My sister and I played the crap out of that thing for many years! I remember it was $49.99 out of the Montgomery Ward catalog.
I finally sold it in the early 80s.
Quoted from Buzz:
...I love all the pics of everyone's games wether it's of one or fifty,and the ones with girls are even better...
I second that! I only wish I had a gameroom. I'll have one someday worthy of this thread, but for now all I have is three pins (CFTBL, FT& TZ) in my home office. The other 20+ pins are in storage awaiting a special spot in my future mancave.
Quoted from AlexF:
Here's a few pics my wife took tonight. My gameroom is constantly evolving. It will probably look different next month.
Fantastic gameroom alex! Lots of stuff considering the room's size! I'm also a jukebox guy and noticed your Seeburg 222; the first stereo jukebox! Is it connected to a wallbox?
Quoted from MustangPaul:
Well the garage/shop just became the garage/shop/Gameroom II. 7 ft slate pool table 2 arcade games, Operation Wolf and MACH 3 lots of neons, a 42 inch lcd tv with a JBL sound bar and sub. I ran out of room so no pinballs. But there's plenty down the basement.
Noticed the BoP above the pool table; nice. Is that one mayuh made? What did you do with the other decals from the set?
Quoted from Pinwiz1985:
Just moved into a new house with a massive basement. Finished building a custom 12ft bar made out of pine and pallet board planks. Scored all the lumber and bar stools for $500! Embryon is still going strong! Will be getting a Bally X's and O's soon from a my friend to keep in the basement when the guys and gals come over to hang. Plenty of room for wine and beer storage, and dispensary equipment. kegerator photo is a bit old, but got a Chocolate Imperial Stout on tap, Hard cider at 5.8%, and more of the Bourbon barrel porter, but one batch is juiced up at 12% versus the session 8% version you see in the pic. The new brew kettle is 30 gallons big.
Got a bunch of plans for LED lighting, liquor shelving, a 4 tap jockey box with a Homer Simpson logo theme on it, and an arduino powered custom liquor dispenser in a black pipe style tap. It will be similar to the 'Sidebar Beverage" setup, but at like a fraction of the cost once I get the parts together. I got an example of the pipe setup minus the bottle on top.
All exciting stuff!
The fifth photo is intriguing. Where can I get one?
Quoted from ramegoom:
Custom-made wall switch plates. Got the idea from someone who sells similar stuff on Ebay, but not 3-gang. So I made my own. Upstairs and downstairs. Used a 30 watt etching laser to cut the 1/4", 1/8" and 1/16" sheets of plastic and the holes for the arcade buttons. Then, hack-sawed the switch buttons and mounting nuts to a minimum height, drilled a cotter pin hole to keep them in the button frame, and played with various plastic fillers until the spacing was just right. They contact the actual paddle switches in the box, and all I needed to do was replace the trim with this contraption. Works great and looks like is should be there.
You should be selling those! Look great! Can you post pics of the back side and post an eBay link?
