I have an on -going thread about playfields here on pinside, and I dont go outside of it much, but I realized that most folks dont follow my thread. Also its at 19 pages now, so it may be a lot of info to just browse. So I want to make it available to everyone that I added a large batch of NOS pfs to my stock, which doubled its size at around 80 new and nos pf, plus a lot of used, restorable pf's.
Here is a list of the pfs I just picked up, and I am just getting thru them, slowly and identifying the issues as well as Protos and samples. Since this is less than half of the pf titles I have, feel free to drop me an email to ask if I have the title you are looking for.
here is what is left
Tales of arabian nights
Creech from the Black Lagoon/ early production light pinkl
Star Trek Next Gen proto/sample
BS Dracula dimpled
ATTACK FROM MARS dimpled proto/sample
Scared Stiff dimpled
Theatre Of Magic dimpled
Star Wars Episode 1
WCS World cup Soccer
Hopefully I am not over saturating everyone with these. NOS pfs are really getting hard for me to find, so I am really excited to get so many in such good condition. The pics and prices and info for all of them is on my website pinballplayfieldskruzman.com
Feel free to send me a pm if you have any interestor questions.
AS FOR CLEARING THEM:
I am at max capacity in my studio, right now, and I stopped accepting jobs temporarily. I am going to first, finish all of the jobs in house, and then I am going to start the pfs from this batch that people decide they want cleared. So I am guessing in July I will start with these.
Most of the pfs from this batch are not dimpled. Dimpling is not hard, but I suggest before installing. I have always offered this service for pfs that are not dimpled. So if you buy a pf and want it dimpled, you dont have to wait till july. I can have it done within a month or less. A big factor is weather I have a template for the title. If I dont have a template made, I can make one from a new or used pf that is dimpled (the process does not effect the donor pf). I have a lot of used pf titles, but if I dont have it, I am sure we can find one.
Lastly if you are interested in pfs or clearing, or just like pics of cleared pfs, you should check out my thread on pinside. Lots of info, as well as daily rantings. Its open and welcome for everyone to chime in. (on playfields)
Ok so not lastly: A fun bit of info: These were collected by a fella that retired from Bally williams, and programed the CNC machine. He kept one of each of the titles he worked on. All of them are from pre/early production. I thought it was kind of funny that his son told me that he said to him one day, "when I am gone these are worth a lot of money!!"
I am super thankful that I got to be a part of distributing these all over the world. some of the folks who all ready bought one were looking for a matching pf to the one in their game for a long time. Some folks like to use NOS if possible, my self included. NOS is almost always more expensive and more work, but its original. I cant explain it, you either feel that way or you dont. During the 13 years I have been focusing on pf's, I have watched the combo of years and pinball getting popular again, make NOS pfs more and more rare.
