Brought A Freddy pinball home tonight- Some pics of the transport- used a 13' Jetta sportwagon. Had to take the backbox off of course but there was even room for the hand truck with them sitting side-by-side.
No keys for this machine! Had to drill the lock out- however found a nice spare set of keys inside along with $3.50 in quarters (this machine had been on free play so who knows who was plugging them in there!). The spare set of keys saved me from having to drill out the backbox lock so that was nice to find. I thought it was somewhat odd that I had to drill completely through the lock to get it to even jiggle free. Figured it would go halfway through and then come loose.
Cabinet isn't in too bad of shape- I've not looked at comparisons though to see if there is any fading.
Glass was very dirty-
The underside of the playfield was remarkably clean and I did not notice any obvious signs of blown coils.
Not planning a full blown restore on this but certainly a very nice refurb. It had the ball trough error when I turned the machine on- so that will be the first order of business. Was only two balls in the trough, one in the non-operating side of the cabinet, and one in what looks like a captive position on the top right of the playfield. More pics and info to come as the work progresses!
