    Whenever Pinball Resource adds new products to their website, they are also posted on the "News" page on the site. I have an alert setup to notify me whenever the news page gets an update. I figured folks here would also benefit from these update notifications.

    http://www.pbresource.com/news.html

    This thread will be a place to notify Pinsiders of these PBR news updates.

    The funniest part of the news post is that if you scroll down, they haven't updated the website format since 2003, lol. Must be for those people still using Netscape Navigator.

    And I suppose you'd want a search function too

    My list is gruesome, I mean its grown some. Early bad Halloween humor.

    I try to exceed $100 as a discount kicks in. Tough right now as my supply of projects is running low.

    I try to exceed $100 as a discount keeps in. Tough right now as my supply of projects is running low.

    My next order will be around $200.00. Going strong with projects right now and in the foreseeable future. Cool new things happening which I will reveal at a later date. True pinball happiness.

    My only two real projects at the moment is a Bazaar which needs heavy cabinet work and Haunted House which needs an MPU to continue diagnostics though I'm going to work on the board tonight.

    I say no other projects on the horizon but you never know what will turn up.

    The funny part of PBR orders is the small box size for the $$ that were spent on it.

    And I wouldn't have it any other way. Still the best value around!

    I tend to order everything I need in one big order..... Then I order a bunch of stuff I forgot or did not know was broken.... and then a few more orders..... and a final order for good measure!! In the end the postal service is well funded by my pinball habit. The fact is I restore games in stages, back box, then Playfield top and bottom and then mechanical tray so I dont really expect to place only one order. I do laugh at myself whenever I find myself saying “this will be the final PBR order”. Never happen.

    That's definitely how I roll with PBR orders as well.

    Well....the spinnning target for Gottlieb is making headway! After a long hiatus due to toolroom and molding priorities, we received and accepted samples from a new mold making the A-17875 plastic spinning target.
