    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    I really appreciate all the kind words. You guys are making me reconsider this one. Could off something else instead. Game-play wise a pretty simple pin, but the art, sound package, and light show on it are unparalleled. Ugh! Not easy at all chopping 5-6 at once, choosing which ones to chop, second-guessing, etc.

    That game is really nice, I miss it, but Ive moved on

    Quoted from dsuperbee:

    Has he advertised at all anywhere?

    sorry dsuperbee

    I have not been on pinside due to the Christmas holiday (kids out of school, etc.)

    The guy advertised on Facebook to sell a Golden Arrow (incorrect cabinet), more of a parts machine. I struck up a conversation with him and he sent some photos of his space chock-full of stuff. Name is Dan Fontes out of San Rafael.

    Hope this helps.

    Are there any pinball parts retailers in Nor Cal or NV that do over the counter sales? I thought I had read/heard about one but I couldn't fine one by Googling. I'm thinking of purchasing some playfield glass. The glass isn't bad enough that I want to pay to ship the glass but if there was some that I could pick up in person for a good price, I might do so. Thanks,

    Why not just get it from a local glass shop?

    I just go to a local glass place, and order it there. Just make sure they grind the sides so you don’t get cut. There’s two levels of doing that finish, I just always get the cheaper one and it’s fine. Usually runs about 35 bucks.

    Perfect Hobbit Smaug LE - HUO, original owner, light usage. It's up for sale but would also be interested in a trade?

    Make sure to specify you want the glass tempered and NO logo.

    Pinball Pirate in Benecia stocks standard playfield glass, $79.

    (At one time Bay Area Amusements sold glass, and now they're in your neighborhood, but I can't find it on their website.)

    Pinball Life sells two sheets of standard tempered glass for $79 plus the cost of ups or fedex ground.

    https://www.pinballlife.com/standard-tempered-playfield-glass-shippable-2-pack.html

    This is what started my interest as I was at pinball life for other items. The two pack increases shipping on my order by $33 so the total is $113 ($56 each). They also offer single sheets for pick up for $30; picking up is substantially cheaper so, if convenient, would definitely be worthwhile.

    Found it. They're in Sparks, I guess I can call and get their warehouse address as they have a local pickup option in their shipping choices. Only $25!

    If anyone near me has the Williams backbox warning/patent ink screening kit, i would like to pay to rent it from you. It's rather expensive to buy for a one time use.

    Regarding these postings from SF craigslist

    sfbay.craigslist.org link

    sfbay.craigslist.org link

    I sold them to the gentleman for $700 as a pair - he informed me that plans were to restore both machines.

    - HI-Deal plays 100% but the playfield is roached in large sections, backglass is beautiful.

    - Big Brave has a nice playfield, backglass is nice (red is faded somewhat) but there is some wire and relay gremlins that need to be sorted out (I thoroughly cleaned the score reels / credit reels / score motor).

    Just FYI to the broader pinball community

    Our usual Second Saturdays casual event is this Saturday, 1p-9p in Tracy. PM me if interested.

    When I redid my AFM, I just used one of these instead of the stencil: ebay.com link » Cactus Canyon Pinball Machine Backbox Warning Decal

    Just a suggestion...

    How did it work out for ya and how long ago had you "installed" it? Reason I ask is ... JJP used the decal approach on The Hobbit and it sucked. It would curl up. After numerous times of heating it up with a hairdryer and resetting it, it would just curl again so I wound up takin git off and throwing it away!

    It's been about a half a year now and still looks ok to me. I don't see any curling or separation yet.
    (Of course, it doesn't have the patent numbers on it, but I do not miss them.)

    That looks good to me. I was thinking it would still look too glossy but that picture makes it look like it was screened. Does the decal extend beyond the very outer edges of the backbox so that it can be trimmed?

    I did not put the decal on. Larry Kaye here in the Bay Area did the great work for me.
    It looks like it goes all the way to the outer wood on the backbox, so I will guess that there is enough room. Of course, you might want to paint black under the decal before applying.

    I have the metal backing plate from a Space Station backbox. If someone needs it, ping me.

    Diner
    Earthshaker
    Funhouse
    Junk Yard
    Theatre of Magic
    Twilight Zone

    Might also go for something newer?

    Total Nuclear Annihilation
    Batman 66 LE
    Iron Maiden Premium/LE
    Deadpool Premium/LE

    Anyone looking to sell one of these within about a hundred miles of the Bay Area?

    Just curious: did anyone on this thread pick up the minty Secret Service that popped up on Craig’s List yesterday? Was considering it, and bang! Gone! If someone on this thread got it, I’d love to know so I could come over someday to give it a spin and see what I missed out on.

    It's still up on the FB marketplace. I can put you in touch with the seller if wanted.

    Black Rose for sale in Elk Grove, just south of Sacramento.

    Plays great, Fresh flippers all around and all new white rubber rings. Hate LEDs?? This is the game for you! All incandescent bulbs!

    Power driver board has been serviced and the GI pins and connectors have been replaced. Upgraded (?) NOGA SOUND cab speaker.

    There is some PF wear (pictured) and the cab has been drilled (one small hole) but the cab has been touched up so it has good color.

    $2600 or trade? Let me know what you got. You pick up in Elk Grove (easy garage access) but local delivery is possible for gas and a small helper fee.
