    The Bally Carnival Queen backglass looked good initially.  On further inspection it is apparent that it has had its high odds razored out in the Washington State way, then restored to the real numbers, but with a white background. (resized).jpg
    Nice shot of hangking playfields and Bally Gayety (and other) head. (resized).jpg
    Decent Laguna Beach backglass in otherwise empty head. (resized).jpg
    At least you don't have to look at your irritated skin. (resized).jpg

    Hmm! That place looks cool - they also have a Brenkert carbon arc lamp housing! Wonder if they have a stash of NOS carbon rods, too?

    Wish I wasn't all the way across the country, but hopefully somewhere to stop in if I ever make the trip up there.

    Heck, I'm going up to Portland tomorrow anyway. Might just stop in & check it out.

    Have you been there? Do you know if there are complete games? I'm three hours away and wondering if it is worth a trip.

    Wondering where these bingos came from myself?
    Wondering if they came from a stash I heard about in Idaho?

    I will get some photos tomorrow & inquire. I'm taking my daughter up to sellwood tomorrow anyway for an appointment & have a couple of hours to kill. Looks like the hardware store is nearby.

    I was in Portland recently and stopped in to see the bingos. The haul is from Bremerton, not far from Seattle, apparently from an operator selling the remaining inventory of games he had moved from warehouse to warehouse through the years. The shop owner told me he originally had tried to sell mated heads and bodies, but gave that up when people started pestering him with questions such as "does it work?" He's now parting out the games and using the cabinets and glasses to create quirky furniture pieces. He didn't mention what he's doing with the electrical and mechanical guts of his games, but I'd guess most of it is being discarded. He's also selling playfields that are marked around $225. I saw a nice Sea Island backglass in a head that still had the magic screen unit. A Laguna Beach glass was nice and in a head that looked like it was empty. I've been in many architectural salvage yards, and this was the most orderly store I've seen.
