    Scanning the thread, will be building a new gameroom from scratch in not too distant future....maybe 25 machines plus misc. Looking at multiple 20 amp circuits correct? 8-10. Put outlets everywhere basically?

    Any other sage advice besides overkill the electric?

    #5841 3 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    low on my outlets

    Low towards the floor or low # of outlets?

    #5849 3 years ago
    Quoted from ramegoom:

    Put 12 outlets on each 20 amp circuit, 6 at 16 in. and the other 6 at 48 in. This way, if you install pinball machines, the cord will be completely hidden in the back, and it's easier to keep the floor clean.

    Is there no need to put in a surge suppressor...or is there a surge built in to the circuit?

    Anybody use anything to protect the stairs (treads/flooring) while bringing games to a basement? I'm afraid to scratch up some nice finished wood stair treads taking a dolly down them. I've found tread coverings but they are all intended to be fixed in place permanently. Also came across plastic sheeting type stuff that would work better for carpet I think.

    Only other idea I had was padded moving blankets...I can see myself tripping with those.

    Any ideas?

    #5882 3 years ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    You could make a slide out of plywood and lower the games down on their bottoms.

    the way I am picturing that it sounds ultra-dangerous! This is with no dolly? What are the logistics of that move?

    I'm good with a dolly, don't have any issues, just want to avoid scratching the stairs.

    #5886 3 years ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    That's why I said lower the games down on there bottoms not wheel the game down the ramp with a dolly. 2 guys on the rope or strap can slide the game down no problem and one 2 guys at the bottom can move it out of the way and start putting legs on while the 2 guys on top get another game ready. It took 4 guys about 2 hours to do it with 9 of my games.

    I can do any game going down by myself with an appliance dolly. I've got it down to a science. Takes me a matter of minutes literally. I just need a way to protect a new set of stairs...

    #5893 3 years ago
    Quoted from Baiter:

    maybe kraft paper taped down?

    I found several kinds of the plastic sheeting for carpets that has a "removable" adhesive backing...maybe I'll p/u some of that

    #5912 3 years ago
    Quoted from pinzrfun:

    I moved all 18 of my games into my basement like this.

    Thanks. That's how I move them now(just brought in a RBION by myself today!). Getting new stairs--don't want to trash them. I'll add the blanket--sounds like best solution.

    1956 to 2003 and a bit in between...

    Sweet Steam Shovel! Does that work well?

    looks like an A/C unit

    #6123 3 years ago
    Quoted from Fast-Ed:

    It's a ductless mini split system.

    right on. we looked at those for our second story for A/C.

    #6158 3 years ago
    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Is there a way to look at pics only on this thread? Thread is getting too long and there is a lot of talk in between pic posts.

    start a "gameroom pics only NO TALKING!!" thread

    #6164 3 years ago

    Insert future gameroom pic here....placeholder for sometime next year when it's completed.

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    Lack of carpet makes moving the machines around much easier.

    I love carpeting under the machines. With sliders on, the game can be pulled straight out for service--so easy with the sliders--very little effort with practically zero friction. That also allows you to put them closer and fit more games. You can also rearrange games in a snap with the sliders. I can't imagine doing that with concrete--you'd need to stick them on a lift I suppose.

    I would think spills and such are much better with concrete but I'm not hosting any wine tastings so not an issue with me.

    There is so much more space but I am not allowed to enter the theater space or my sons play area which is huge on the other side
