1972 Williams "Honey"
Bad news first: No backglass, no back panel, some playfield wear.
Good news: I shopped this machine about a year ago. All score reels and steppers cleaned and very lightly lubed (PTFE only). Flipper coils / sleeves replaced. Many switches cleaned and adjusted. Plastics and playfield thoroughly cleaned (Novus 2) and new rubbers, shooter tip, rebound ring installed. Plastics in good shape.
I've played this machine many times and had no problems. The other day I turned it on a popped a fuse. I started to look into the cause, but it wasn't immediately apparent and I no longer have time to work on my machines. I believe that whatever is wrong with Honey will be an easy fix, even for a novice as long as he or she has the time to look over the machine. This would be a great starter machine for someone looking to get into pinball repair.
1965 Williams "Moulin Rouge"
Bad news first: Missing flipper coil (right), no back panel, reds in backglass flaking (common - see images), no legs, lock relay is damaged and will need replaced and switch stack rebuilt, missing ball eject rollovers and someone took several screws out of the machine which left switch stacks hanging. Also has some playfield wear (see images), cab splitting near leg bolt holes (see image), and cab and head have been repainted in a theme that differs from the original design.
Good news: The machine is fairly rare and in decent shape aside from the bad news mentioned above. The plastics are intact and mechs all move relatively smoothly. This machine is one that will take a bit of time to fix, but I estimate that the total parts cost will be below $100 (some pop bumper caps will need replaced).
I have the rubber kit for Moulin Rouge that I will gladly let go with the machine."
