Quoted from o-din:

Nimblepin! I'm sitting here hungry and you are writing love letters to CactusJack? WTF! Are we eating or not? At least I'm not thirsty!

Nimblepin, I did not mean to offend, I was just speaking from old school experience from years of being on the operating side of pinball. There were many service calls or down games due to one of those rubber caps popping off. Even when they were fresh and tight. But there was a post in the past where some did not even know how to install the Gottlieb nuts and were fighting with them since they weren't using a nut driver and/or applying downward pressure to get them to start.

I have to personally commend you on yours, and other's efforts of working on John's games to ready them for the upcoming Arcade Expo. It is a tremendous undertaking to try to get 500+ pins up and ready for public play. And I will appreciate every game, regardless of the type of post cap used.

As to the Chrome Acorn nuts, I have never had a problem with new ones other than maybe a single dud every now and then. However, there are two types. Ones that have the thread built in and are designed for pre-threaded posts. These are the kind you would find at a typical hardware supply store. Then, there are the ones, like Gottlieb used, that are self tapping Nuts. I have only been able to find those from Steve at PBR.

I am looking for a really nice TSPP I am in Palm Springs Ca let me know if anyone is willing to sell at a reasonable price

#609 7 years ago
Quoted from NimblePin:

Mostly I was just giving jww15 $#!t (jokingly) for passing on a game simply because it had post rubbers instead of the speed nuts...

I had to go back and look at my post to make sure I didn't word something wrong. I didn't pass on the Pin because of the rubber nuts...hell I have two myself...I stated I had the Encore version which is nearly the same and the game play was fun. My personal opinion is I like the metal speed nuts, I think they look better, and with a piece of paper jammed in the bottom of a socket they are easy to install.
And for what it's worth the only reason I pass on anything Mike is selling is because he lives so damn far away! Mike is a nice guy and I don't hold anything against him. He is actually one of the few Pinsiders I have met and has been to my house. He sells a lot of Pins I would be interested in and he prices are almost always better than fair. That is all, thank you and carry on...

I have the following games I'm looking to sell or trade;

1990 Bally's Pool Sharks pinball
1990 Mousin Around pinball (maybe / on the fence with this one)
2004' Incredible Technologies Golden Tee 2K; in dedicated cabinet, 4-player golf game.

I'm interested in 90' Data East Simpsons pinball and upright (not cockpit / sit-down type I don't have the space) driving game, like Cruis'n Exotica, World or USA or Need for Speed (+/- cash) what ever is fair.

Located in Northern Calif (East Bay Area)

You guys & your little nuts. How cute.

Your nuts are missin' something on the inside -

No threads. That's just a big hex washer?

Belated "Merry Christmas", Cactus!

No offense was taken since we were just sharing our experiences; naturally of course, people will choose to do what they want to their games regardless of our opinions.
I'd be happy just to see all of them on and playing 100% by the time January 16th rolls around!

End of nut.

Cirqus Voltaire in LA for $3500, posted on the Mr Pinball classifieds today. I know it won't last long but I'm hoping a pinsider gets it before one of the flippers do.....

#639 7 years ago

I'm selling a Fireball (the real one!). PF is really nice. Pics are coming. Asking 1350.00. Contact me with questions. Could deliver to the Expo. I'll be there on Friday.

#640 7 years ago
#641 7 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

The price police are going to be out in full force if it is a nice one.

Do you think thats too much or not enough for a fireball? I honestly have no idea where I would value it at, thats why I ask.

#642 7 years ago
#643 7 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

If it is as nice as mine it is not enough. Isn't that how the price police work?
Mine is the one on the left.

If it was that nice, the price wouldn't be what I'm asking.

#644 7 years ago
#645 7 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

It took me three different Fireballs to get to that one. It may very well be HOU or only spent a small amount of time on route. Recently it is getting a lot of play.

Yours looks amazing. Mine has a rough BG. I was up in the air about getting a Shay repro glass. Think I'll leave that up to the next owner.

#646 7 years ago
#647 7 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

The one on the right is the German model that rotordave took with him back to New Zealand. I had thought that was as nice as I could find before I came across the other one. All three including the beater I started with had great backglasses. I have heard for the most part they held up pretty well.

Yes, other than a broken one and a faded one, I have never seen a bad FB backglass (flaking etc.) Its been discussed before but it is interesting how some 70's Ballys held up so well (FB, Monte Carlo, Bow and Arrow, Capt. Fan. etc.) and then others its hard to find a perfect one.

Hey! I recognize that super sweet FB!
