I would say...that's a pretty productive weekend.

Quoted from Atari_Daze:

I'm looking for any help one can offer for use of the Cameo, specifically the materials that have been used successfully for stencil material for both the cab and playfield. I read in the Cameo club thread something about Oramask 813 and GerberMask, but can't seem to find a source for the GerberMask, Amazon.com went into convulsions when I tried searching for that one.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Pinsider MK1MOD0 may be able to help you. He made new cabs and stencils for two early SS Bally's

Hey, don't forget to play the heck out of it when you get it finished.

Original plan was to sell shortly after completion of the restore....all this work is for the next owner to enjoy.

On that note....Mr. Daze, were you wanting to use the newer flipper bat style? Those aren't the Bally fat flipper bats from the original.


Just asking

I like white the best...second place goes to blue. Would love to put some games on it if you need more play testing

I've got to find a way over to put some plays on the SBM! ....making new cabinets? Since your offering Oh wait, that's just for your next project.

Quoted from Colsond3:

Jim's good peeps....get over there and play that thing! (before it gets shipped or picked up by someone)

It has been scheduled!

Was able to put eyes/hands on this machine in person this weekend. It looks great while managing to kick your ass at the same time. Colson or whoever buys this will have a machine that looks great and will last the long haul. I am truly impressed by the detail that has gone into this restoration.

Thanks for the invitation....and looking forward to the Atlantis restore thread as well.
