Quoted from bluespin:

This is a home model:

Month/Year: October 1976

ebay.com link » Pinball Machine
Quoting the seller: "I'm selling my 1972 balky fireball pinball machine home edition. It dosent work but we got it to work for a little bit and then it stoped"
This is the 1976 home edition (see start button). I didn't know there was a pinball manufacturer called "Balky" Is it based on the island of Mipos?

Seems to fit the description of the games current state.

Definition of balky
balkier; balkiest
:  refusing or likely to refuse to proceed, act, or function as directed or expected

Are they that rare up there? Williams made a lot... they pop up around here every few months or so.

Seriously! What...the heck. Why are all these doorbells identical? Did they only make one doorbell in the 60's?

Probably the cheapest one.

Quoted from gdonovan:

A pin based on mini-bikes? Who knew! I'd buy it in a heart beat, why does it have to be so far away??!!

Pretty boring game, but if you are a mini-bike enthusiast, why not? The price is right.

I am selling all the pinball machines and parts that I have left.
With this group there are 6 pinball machines. 1) Hokus Pokus 2) GulfStream 3) Bowl O 4)Oklahoma..(this machine alone is worth over 500 dollars, it was one of the very first pinball coin op and it's wood rail) 5) Old Chicago that needs a backglass 6) I forget the name but it's another EM. Along with these machines are boxes and boxes and boxes of EM and some SS parts. There are over 200 coils, stops, rubbers..just about everything anyone would need to work on EM's and enough of all of it that you wouldn't need to order stuff. (three containers of pinball fuses as well) This bundle is 750.00 You get six machines and all the parts for that. The parts alone are worth at least a grand if you added them all up.
I also have two shuffle/bowlers and a San Fransico EM along with a Golden Tee video game in another group that I am selling all of this group for 250.
There is a rotisserie that I am bundling with a pinball dolly that I am asking 100 for.
Some of the EM boxes are from Jimmy that owned Metro Pinball. There are four boxes that he sold to me that he said were EM and SS parts during the last week of his life. To be honest I have never looked in them and I know 2 of the boxes has nothing but sets of plastics...so someone could sell these boxes and make some money on Ebay with them. These boxes are 50.
The last bundle is a Pot O Gold machine that has a cabinet completely ready for paint, (all restored), brand new backglass, playfield completely restored, mech board and head. This machine just needs to be put back together. I am bundling it with a Grand Slam by Gottlieb that just needs a few things done to it. The playfield has wear and these two machines together are 350.
NONE of these are in that bad of a condition. They just need a few things here or there.
I will send pictures if you send me a number to text them to. I do NOT want to break up the bundles that I have listed. I am moving and I do NOT want to move them again for a third time.
If someone wants to put two of the bundles together, I am open to an offer for something like that. Or if someone wants to offer for EVERYTHING. I will visit about that as well.

E-mailed the guy twice. Nothing back. I assume they are sold.
Mellow Mushroom pizza is really good. $3.00 16 oz. drafts too. Outside patio seating. Cardinals on T.V. About 70 degrees. Life is good.

Cost: $200

Contact/Link:boston.craigslist.org link
OP: Vintage 1940's rare wood rail Williams Gizmo 5 ball pinball machine. Comes with key. In working condition. The coin changer (nickels) even works. Flippers work intermediately.

Gizmo is a single player game.

#5970 2 years ago
Quoted from Pecos:

I took a closer look at this Project Pin. What's wrong with this picture - besides the missing spinner?

Hint: Notice that one of the right plastics is missing.
Easily fixed, but still?!?!
Yeah, I'm looking at it. Can't resist the temptation! Too tempting!

Looks like they added a post to block each out lane. Idiots! Not an easy fix. This is what it should look like.

Quoted from CactusJack:

No backglass, possibly 3 missing inserts in the playfield. No shot of the cabinet paint Condition. As is, probably around $100 to $200.

Ron Webb has 3 Mayfair repro. glasses in stock. $275.00.


#6117 1 year ago
Quoted from bluespin:

dashingdaryl This is a two player wedgehead, not a very popular title, and is probably only worth $500-600 if the playfield and cabinet are in nice condition. If you search this forum using the filter "find in this forum" you will see that this title has been offered on Craigslist for $250-350 with the backglass. The most popular wedgehead were the one player versions because they could offer more complex scoring bonus opportunities if there was only one scoring reel.

FYI. Only single player games are 'wedgeheads'. Multi-player heads are square.

#6183 1 year ago
Quoted from bluespin:

I looked at the playfield not the cabinet. I noticed that the backglass is some custom aluminum thing. The playfield is a rare wedgehead placed inside an early solid state cabinet

Cabinet looks correct to me. Just an ugly re-paint. Backglass is an etched or painted over mirror.

Quoted from CactusJack:

Even the backglass on that Captain is toast. They never go bad. That game must have sat in 100% humidity for quite a long time.
I barely consider that a parts machine. The world won't miss one less CF.
I just can't figure out why the playfield looks pretty presentable. I am guessing the paint will come right off when the ball starts rolling around on it.

I can't believe he plugged it in.

My son just picked this one up. Looks even better in person and works perfectly. I can't believe it was still available. Must have been because of the holidays.

Thanks for posting the link Nic. My son had a Gusher years ago but had to sell it when he came up short on cash when building a new house. He's been looking for a nice replacement ever since.
A friend of mine had a Gusher back in the mid 60's. He had about 6 other games but Gusher was played daily. Can't wait to put some time on this one.

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

“The boards appear to be nice but I haven't pulled them”

Looks like the remains of a mud daubers nest. Probably does not affect anything.

Quoted from bluespin:

The people that invented pinball coffee tables are now bringing you...pinball bookshelves
Location: Las Vegas, New Mexico
Cost: $100
Contact/Link: santafe.craigslist.org link
OP: Located in Las Vegas N.M.
1950s Repurposed Pinball Machine Shelves, one has picture of a sailboat and the other parasols. Pulled from a basement of a historic building here in Las Vegas. Price is negotiable and is for the pair. more pictures available as requested.
Definitely could be cleaned up a bit. would make a great addition to a game room or older style garage.
Me: That' s some ugly and expensive firewood, and it's not even in the Las Vegas that you wat to go to (Nevada)

First photo in the ad is (was) a Bally Surf Club bingo. Second one a Bally Beach Club bingo. Sad day at the beach.

Quoted from cottonm4:

Talk to me about this "drop it at a Fastenal store". I have checked with two local Fastenal stores about shipping a pin. Both stores store tell me I have to do everything---including supplying the pallet. I called the national number for clarity on this pallet business. Corporate parroted what the two stores said, "you have to furnish the pallet". That ain't gonna fking happen.

Exactly. It's not a matter of just "dropping it off".
