I've spoken with people who've been there. They all say it's a much smaller place than you might think from watching the TV show.
The "Old Man" was the best. It's not the same without him. His best line ever: "Chumlee, I think you played with too much merkree (mercury) when you was a kid."

None of the people you would know from the show were there. I asked around, and apparently they very rarely come in. Makes sense, I suppose.

It has many more high end items than any pawn shop I've ever been in. Rare art, ancient coins, etc. Mostly collectibles, and not any lawn mowers or tools, lol.

They do also sell a lot of the show's memorilbilia, like t-shirts, coins with the old man's face, etc.

I almost bought a Salvador Dali...but I don't know how I would have taken it on the plane.

I would recommend it just for the experience... especially if you have watched the show much.

System 11. That replaces the two boards on System 11s, such as Laser Cue, with one board. An Alltek MPU and solenoid driver board will set you back near the same at $350.00 for the pair.

#21116 3 months ago

You could use an APC board to replace a sys11 MPU. Fairly cheap and easy to build.

#21117 3 months ago

Second checking out the dumbmass boards, especially if you can solder and populate them yourself.

#21118 3 months ago

Not for me, thanks. I can replace a bad resistor, but that’s the top of my game.

You can buy the bare mpu for $105, or you can pay him extra and he’ll populate it with all the necessary roms. Not sure what he’ll charge. Pm him.

Expect about $500 but also expect that it will be better than the rottendog.

I've been a few times, used to go to Vegas yearly until my daughter was born. When I used to go, we met and talked with Rick, the old man, and Chum. Rick and Chum signed stuff for us and were pretty down to earth. I went when it was the small shop, then the bigger one. Sat outside once listening to a guy with a cannon rehearsing his lines, very scripted show. Cool experience though. We were inside during one filming, big security dude was threatening everyone to shut up and act casual or he'd throw us the F out. lol

Thirded! While I don’t have experience with his MPU I do have one of his displays in my BK2k. He does good work and knows his stuff! He helped me bring a sys 11 board back from the dead.

I will sell them as a group for 275. Local pickup. First floor, no stairs.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Ahh the old, wish you were closer.... I'd take them, then spend ten years seeking the heads.

The messed up thing is...I know where the heads are, but the seller hasn't responded to me in MONTHS. It is frustrating.

You would think they would want them out of the way.

Hopefully they haven't thrown them away

Do offers of cash go unanswered?

This reminds me of the pinsider who bought a base ball machine with no head. All of the wires had been cut. Then he located a head from somewhere. When it shipped in, it had the same cut wires. He just by chance got the original head from his base ball machine.

I have offered cash and he could leave them outside. I have made all types of attempts. Nothing. I hope he didn't pass away...

Coffee Table Alert
Stern Nine Ball
$300
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/265105035088892/

If he only knew that it would have been more valuable as a non-coffee table. And the fact that there's a smiley face after he said he gutted it

200.gif

Not sure if the mechs are all there or not, as it looks populated. But the drops are set up in a way that would suggest that they've been glued in place somehow.

#21135 3 months ago

FFS!

Way to turn a $3500 game into "$300" worth of junk! Anyone wanna pick that up for me? I set my mind to scratch building a Nine Ball and many of those parts would be helpful.

How easy is it to Google this game and check the value before you strip it? I mean at this point the drop mechanism is probably worth more than 300 dollars. That seller is the idiot of the year. He took the time and spent the energy taking it apart and then seems to revel in it.... Smh.

#21137 3 months ago

I'm gonna see if he'll ship it via Fastenal.

edit: Local pick up only. Damn it. Anyone wanna help a brother out?

I would guess he turned it into a coffee table a long time ago. Before it was worth anything. It was just an old pinball machine with a missing back box.

I could use the cabinet but it sounds like it is modded.

A back box could be built easily enough. Maybe you get lucky and the transformer is still sitting inside. The play field is toast so go with Mirco.

$2000.00, $2500.00 ( these were nose bleed prices 5 years ago ) tops and you could build a nice Nine Ball. You get the drop assemblies that look intact. You get the lock down bar. Coin door looks nice. And then.................... you realize that the wire harness is probably nowhere to be found. Seller says what you see is what you get. One could be built, but it would be some work. Any other parts needed can be bought.

Or it could be Quicksilver or Star Gazer bait.

I wish it was in my town.

#21143 3 months ago

I just really want the apron, coin door, long arm spinner, and ball guides. Anything else would be bonus material. I’ve actually have all the other parts.

Already resigned to making the harness, so that would only be a very welcome bonus if it was still there.

Can Mk1Mod0 just make a harness? He does that a ton!

Also if anyone is looking for projects, I’ve got a Hollywood and a Stardust that are both in rough shape.

These games are currently hanging out in the hallway at the **Saratoga Silverball show** for decoration.

Stardust the bell keeps locking on and I’ve tried cleaning the contacts but it does it only when you hit the 1000 points. Weird. Several burnt coils but I already got replacements from Steve. shoot me offers if you’re interested. It’s pretty clapped out in the worst way. Horrible backglass horrible playfield. Game is like a 3/10 only thing good is the solid cabinet.

Hollywood is better overall, the doorbell chime is half melted, and the motor blows the fuse. Seized up or broken tooth, not sure what’s going on but it pulls over 20 amps alone so something ain’t right.
Good Backglass and decent playfield. All in all just a decent game with a score motor that needs a rebuild.

Feel free to make offers. I’ll be working on them this week trying to work out the issues in the meantime.

My brother once bought a "North Star" head at a show. Found the body for it (ebay listing) like 12 years later. They were from the very same machine, and somehow got separated.
I found a head for a Gottlieb "Pleasure Isle" (only 235 produced). I had the lower part for about six years. A friend of mine found it at a car show, and picked it up for me cheap. The head turned up in Florida, and although there's no way to know for sure (no serial number on the head) the back story seemed to indicate that it was from that very game. Both had similar wear and tear as well.

#21146 3 months ago

I picked up a "Magnotron" head for $25 a while back, saved the guts and wired it up as a lightbox in my garage. I'm not a fan of the gameplay of the game anyway, so makes good garage decor.

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

He has to have a template. For his Star Gazer harness, he bought a SG play field. For QS, I think someone loaned him a QS play field. For Seawitch, I removed my Lexan play field protector, and marked on the protector the position of every light and every switch and sent to to him.

So, to make a harness, he would need a Nine Ball play field for a road map.

Quoted from play_pinball:

If you are going to make a harness, you need colored striped wire.

Here is one way to make your own striped wire. I did take a tip from Shawn at Third Coast and use acrylic paints and a small paint brush to stripe my wires ( if needed), but if you are going to do a lot you need to build what this guy built. Start at post #36. Then skip to post #59.

Unfortunately, his link to Bay Area Amusements is not valid. It looks like Planetary Pinball has taken over for BAA.

#21149 3 months ago

Have a Playmatic Fantasy I’m going to list. Thought I’d throw it up here first (John ). Haven’t had time to get to it. $350

Not currently booting, but it looks like one coil is burnt, and the plate on the bottom of the scoring motor has a crack (not sure how central that is to getting the game running).

PF is perfect, BG is very nice with some minor flaking, cab is in good shape.

Yep, Planetary Pinball. That's where I get my striped color wire - just put "wire yellow blue" (i.e. wire plus the two colors you want) in the search box:
