    Hey guys,

    A buddy came over and worked on my game.

    He put the tools he used in a pingulp.

    Is this abuse of a game?
    (I wrapped the leg afterwards, just in case.)

    I might be the only one who thinks that putting a Pingulp on a game is abuse of a game

    #11 10 months ago

    It is better than laying the tools on the playfield glass or the playfield.

    #12 10 months ago

    The only abuse that occurs with pingulps is when you accidentally bash your knee into one.

    #13 10 months ago

    Or never cleaning out the inside of them.

    #14 10 months ago

    this is what i call abuse of a game!

    Next we just need a lip on the lockdown bar to keep your sandwich from sliding off.

    I don't understand why you didn't tape the tools together.

    #18 10 months ago

    Pingulps in their stock form sit way too low. I flip the bracket on mine and retap the holes... Then you get the perfect height. Would this be considered abuse of a pingulp?

    #19 10 months ago

    Pin gulps are an abuse to beer. Why the hell would I want to shake up my beer?

    #20 10 months ago

    I hate pingulps but even I have to admit, they do a necessary job well.

    #21 10 months ago

    Tools should be carefully wrapped in a clean, soft diaper when not being used.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    The real question is why would you drink beer when we have liquor.I'll take mine shaken not stirred.

    #23 10 months ago

    He is worried about tools in the cup holder, but does he ever clean the glass???

    Well I certain(t)ly can't fit an Old Fashioned glass in a pingulp

    No, because that causes microscratches.

    Quoted from timab2000:

    Can't, it makes my rags dusty, which abuses my washing machine.

    Whoa whoa whoa...you mean you didn't send your dryer out to be clear coated and wax it regularly?

    #28 10 months ago

    Cupholders shouldn't be on a pin anyway. It's OK for the drunks of the world I guess..............

    #29 10 months ago

    Beer holders for drunks is a lot better than being put on the machine or kicked underneath. And the risk of shaking a beer until it it flat is better than a tilt bob.

    I have old fashion wire holders. I wish they still made them.

    See, now he can mount the old fashioned pinball cigarette holders to the side rails to hold screws and posts.

    Why do your pins have prosthetic legs?

    Pinfootsies - A goof on Bryan Kelly's "Pin Footies" from many years ago - http://pinbald.com/47901.html

    On RGP back a couple of decades ago whenever you busted his stones you would get a "You B@stard" post back from him. All in good fun.

    Why spend the $$ on that when you can just do this?? Maybe we can start a thread on worst cigarette burn ever pictures

    Always keep the cigs on the glass...easier to clean than wood

    #39 10 months ago

    Unless you payed your buddy for the work he did on your game I'd quit whining. If you had given him a beer like a gracious freeloader he would have needed somewhere else to put the tools
