Should have posted that on Halloween. It's scary stuff

Quoted from Lovef2k:

Yeah I'm not going to taste that stuff lol. Just rip out and replace. Yes the plate came out well, I painted it with Rustoleum satin nickel and will hold up well. The transformer will be a challenge to clean up though.

I have used that satin nickel on some really nasty steppers after an evaporust bath. Really turns out nice

Quoted from Lovef2k:

Never tried Evaporust. I'll get me some. I used naval jelly on some tough spots.

You will love it, it's amazing stuff!

Probably repairable, but yeuch!

Pretty typical

Quoted from hepgeek:

Got this Charlie's Angels along with a Hulk, shufflebowler, and a cigarette machine. Bulk buy, all or none. The Charlie's was the worst case, sitting in the corner of a leaky shed for decades. When delivered to me, C.A. was missing two legs and strapped to the sideboards of a box van, being held up by a rusty Ford tailgate. The shufflebowler was the heaviest pile of parts ever. But the pingods were just, and for all that work scrapping the Hulk is in really good shape.

Alaska has to be a tough place to find project pins.

Quoted from matt_adams:

Here's one for you

Lot of good parts there!

Quoted from Taxman:

Now I realize you just don't put 80 hours of labor and $1,200 of parts for a $400 game.

Damn, I have been doing it all wrong!

Quoted from MarkInc:

Old barns in Ontario. Apparently 150 vids/pins. Most exposed to the elements.

Assuming they are cheap, there's always good usable parts in such pins.

Can anyone identify that cabinet?

Looks like a Bally

Looks like the inside of my High hand when I bought it, except yours does not have any visible burnt wires....

Quoted from AlexF:

Royal Guard is a fun game. If complete it's restorable, you just have to ask if it's worth the effort sometimes. A Pinsider not long ago resurrected one without a head.

Yeah, that was me. Lot of hours put into that & still having a problem with it blowing fuses. Something just not quite correct.

Quoted from gdonovan:

I stripped the front of the cabinet too and that ended up in the pile with the rest, a moment of silence for this Royal Guard as its watch has ended.

He died so that others can live.
The organ transplant of the lightboard into my Royal Guard was successful. Thanks again Gary for taking the time to package this up & send it my way.

Quoted from wantdataeast:

$50 Hyperball... with 3 cute residences. They saved me $50 the guy wanted $100 but was happy to take $50 when we slid down the glass and saw Mickey and his siblings.
Mom was gone, no doubt scared off my me. The mice were so young I was able to catch them with my hands. Too young to make it on there own, I am keeping them for a few weeks in a tote to let them grow a bit before releasing them in some location where they have a chance. I know they are probably not going to make too long after being released, but at least they have a chance and my $50 debt to them will be paid in full for saving me $50 on a nice Williams system 7 board set, a set of working digital displays and some various other parts.

Sorry, but I would have flushed them down the toilet.

Quoted from cottonm4:

A local operator closed up shop and auctioned off all of his pins and 40 years worth of pin trash. I bought 3 play fields. I punched out all of the inserts and finished stripping them down today.
Nitro Groundshaker.

Future Spa

High Speed. Had some good plastics and play field wiring was intact.

Good for you, always lots of decent usable parts to be found in such playfields - no matter how bad they look.

Quoted from Nikrox2:

And a fellow pinsider shipped me this as the perfect start (Denver to Cleveland . I hope to set up a sep post on the rebuild. This is my first full off the frame attempt so fingers crossed and keg filled

Damn I want one of those old Williams pins with the drink shelf. So cool.

Clean it up, make everything work & play the hell out of it.

Quoted from cottonm4:

Exactly. A drunk bash party machine

We take such a pin camping. My little Honda generator powers it nicely.

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

My HRC has tons of flipper button wear. So much so in fact I bought those metal guards to cover it lol. I typically don’t care about such things but man it was bad... honestly the playfield is imamaculate so it must be something with the screening they used in those years

My guess is that it was in a pizza parlor where the greasy hands softened the paint around the flipper buttons

These guys have been sitting in an open shed since 1986.

Quoted from Atari1977:

Saw this Jack In The Box on Facebook. Looks like a barn find, backglass is nowhere to be found, but my main thing is you would think they could sweep away the creepy crawlies before taking pictures.
[quoted image][quoted image]

restored worse, I would take it

#1892 9 days ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

It will buff out.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Have not restored worse, but would take it for free - I see a 5" Gottlieb bell in that cab. Gotta be more usable stuff in there.
