At least it was on grass and dirt then on cement
Ouchie

Truth.. was helping a friend move some video games and had a large, heavy Atari cabinet go sideways off the hand truck onto grass. It escaped without any real damage. Those old Atari cabs are tough..

Craigslist ad posted over in another thread ... smd.craigslist.org link

Here are the photos since the listing will inevitably disappear:

I would give them $50 for that - no doubt a lot of usable parts in that mess.

Yeah. Drop target assemblies and transformers are starting to be like gold.

Was that pile of trash worth $50.00?

If I could have driven to pick it up, I'm thinking yes. I'm betting the transformer just needs cleaned up. A $35.00 Weebly rectifier board and a little elbow grease and you have something to sell and put some money back in your pocket, and you still have some goodies left over to keep or sell.

There were 2 trashed pins in the ad the other one is laying flat on the ground under that blue tarp.

#2061 48 days ago

WOW

#2062 48 days ago

2 x Bally coin doors a Stern coin door and a Gottlieb coin door, a Bally backboard with what's left of boards on it, and a backbox Backboard with what looks like Gottlieb boards attached, how many trashed machines are there, sad, so very very sad to see.

Yes, this is a sold EBay listing. If you look carefully in the pic of the ad I posted you will see it is a sold unit. There is also another BIN auction just like it that also sold for $289.00.

Just go to EBay, type in “pinball transformer”, go to “sold items” have a look at the kind of money pin transformers are bringing.

Yeah, wow! That's crazy

Some of this is the talent in the marketing. Two same same items can sell for wildly different prices based on nothing more than some spit shine and polish and lots of real nice pictures, and some nicely written text.

There is another same same Bally transformer that sold for way less.

But this guy spends a bit to build and install a brand new Weebly rectifier and scoops up at least $100.00 extra.

Go to EBay and look at sold pinball coin doors. That Rolling Stones coin door is not beat up and will polish up nicely and bring $70.00 plus shipping with the right pics and good write up.

Sizzle sells.

I bought this same transformer at pintastic for 25$ at the flea market. People should really shop around. If you want to buy and fix pinball machines you can’t shop like you do on Amazon.

I would agree with this. A little work at your local show can net some deals, albeit it can be hit and miss. We got an arcade spinner with single axis digital directional for $25, came from a Taoplan designed Taito made Ghox, and will be going into a bartop in the future. And I got the service manual for Gottlieb Solid State for $3 from a dealer a couple of years back.

The closest pinball show to me is TPF and that is 400 miles one way. I can only wish there was a show local to me.

Sounds like you need to start one. I used to live north of you(Lyons), but I moved to Cali, or else I'd be up for helping.

Yes...but TPF is awesome, and definitely worth it. See ya next year

If that Stones still had the scoring bumper posts that would have made it worth it right there.

Not visually horrific, but horrifically stupid. Here’s why my T2 had poor left speaker sound...
It was stuffed in between the speaker and the grill.

Have seen this many times in arcade machines-because the owners didn't know how to lower the volume.
So I suppose this is there for the same reason.
