Quoted from bobnatlanta:

On the fence on this one...about an hour away, and I have 3 projects going and NOWHERE to put this, but if they'd take $50, I'd haul it away for them. It's a Fast Draw, with fade all over and moisture damage on the PF, and busted plastics. It might be a box of rust, but they do claim it partially works, and I really cannot save them all. My brain hurts.
And I'm doing something wrong trying to paste the link. Atlanta CL, pin is located in Dallas, GA.

Did you get this? atlanta.craigslist.org link

Quoted from bobnatlanta:

Hoov - no. Not....yet. Talked with the owner, but couldn't get out to see him last weekend. Trying to arrange another appointment, if it's still available.

If you could get it chep enough it would be worth it. Good luck

If you look over on the lower right of the CL ad he typed in Darling as the game name......Not sure why these guys don't include the game name in the title.

Someone go buy this $50 pioneer right now. That's a crazy deal. Even the glass looks good
It's actually way nicer than the one we have at my dads house. I'd buy it if I wasn't going to pick up a corvette project tomorrow.

It says "Make best offer" in the ad now. Not sure if that was there at the beginning because I just read it.

Here's my Hi Straight on ebay in case you missed it. Flippers are on the sides of the playfield. IPDB says Molentin did the artwork but someone mentioned it looks more Roy Parker. The blonde looks similar to the girl on GTB '65 Kings and Queens.

Condition: OP: "Comes with all paper work, keys, stickers. Power ups fine, But needs work."

^^^^^^^ What they said

Location on this one is Rochester, NY - not Wisconsin - haha had me looking. But it looks like a pretty decent game and price isn't bad depending on the pf, coin door, etc..

#1591 3 years ago
Quoted from DaWezl:

I'm on the trail of an EM near me, and the person selling it isn't a pinhead, so the condition is unknown. (I've seen some pictures, so I know it won't be a mice colony lol, but no closeup pics or interior mechanic shots)
We've made arrangements for me to go look at it tomorrow. I already know it's in a miserable location (3rd floor apartment), so I have an appliance dolly and a husband. What other tools, etc, should I bring? I'm guessing with project pins, there can be some really unexpected "fixes" that you run into!

Since it's easiest to transport a game broken down into 3 pieces - head, cabinet base, and legs - the biggest things you will need are some kind of wrench or ratchet/socket to fit the leg and head bolts - legs are usually 5/8" and head bolts 9/16". I mainly collect Gottliebs so it's best to have a selection of wrenches/ratchets/sockets, etc. that vary in size for anything you may run across. Other manufacturers may be different.

The other thing you want to take is a cordless drill with an extra battery (or electric drill) and some new (or sharp) drill bits between 1/8" - 3/8" (I use 1/4" mostly). A lot of times the keys get lost to the back door lock or the coin door lock and you have to drill them out. Just drill all the way through the lock with a standard size drill bit. After you're through, you might have to use a slotted screwdriver in the lock to turn it to free it but most of the time they fall out.

You have to remove the 4 head bolts (Gottlieb games) and unplug any male jones pin connectors at the end of the wire hanesses.

Always take the ball out of a game so you don't damage playfield plastics during moves.

Lastly, extreme temperature changes to these em backglasses aren't good. Always use a heavy blanket to cover head if temperatures in the house versus outside temps are different - exp., 65 deg inside, 20 degrees outside. I don't worry too much if it's above 40 deg.

#1612 3 years ago

Your husband is a lucky guy to have his wife there helping take it down the steps. It sounds like you're the one excited to work on/play the new game!


#1614 3 years ago
Quoted from DaWezl:

Lol, I'm the lucky one! All that heavy lifting only cost me a BBQ dinner!
My son and I are the main pinheads, but my husband commented today that he's really starting to enjoy playing pins. Bwahaha, my plan is working!

Have fun working on your new pin and if you have any tech questions go to the EM Hangout forum/EM Tech Pinball sub-forum and ask away. Also pinrepair.com and pinwiki.com are chock full of good repair info..

Inspect above games in person before you buy. There's been some mis-representation in his games that he ships off ebay, etc., but if you go and buy locally he seems better.

It has been cleared with varathane in the past. Cab decent with original paint, lower cab was touched up by previous owner. Head could benefit from the same treatment.
Overall a pretty nice game with a great family friendly theme. Has all the commonly missing components, back door, lock-down bar, all animation balls present. Includes schematic."

#2551 3 years ago
Quoted from Pecos:

Manufacturer: Gottlieb
Game/Type: Vulcan / EM 4 Player
Month/Year: October 1977
Production: 3,575
Cost: $450
Location: Fallsington (Philadelphia), PA
Link/Contact: philadelphia.craigslist.org link
Condition: OP: "UPDATE AS OF 6/27/2016 - one of the contactors, for the multiple player changes, has now started to sometimes, repeat sometimes, stick. I have lowered the price by $200 from $650 to $450 so if you know these machines, it is an easy, inexpensive fix. No haggle, just want it gone, first $450 cash gets it.
These are pix I took today of the pinball machine.
In great shape, fully working, just played it today when I took the pix.
Kids are grown and we are downsizing.
This has been well maintained in a private home for the last 15 years and not used a lot.
I also have the manuals for it."

Another good game - good price. Tough to find one with a good backglass.

#2558 3 years ago
Quoted from goingincirclez:

I'd seen this listed before the post here and, being interested, got more info from the seller.
The transfer relay (that moves the balls across the scoops) is stuck and runs continuously but he says the game is "still playable". Sounds like it needs a full shop of rubbers, bulbs, etc. Cab was repainted (tastefully if not perfectly) and he says it's in good shape except for "where kids etched their scores in". He sent more pics and the backglass is pristine, but the pf has heavy wear on the right side and a bit of paint loss... it could probably be touched up nice. Two plastics replaced with nondescript green. Coindoor lock is broken.
Remained firm on the $500 price so I'm passing for now, unless somehow that is all still a deal. What should a Sing Along go for anyway? It's a good game, but they made a lot of 'em. I was thinking no more than $300, and maybe even that would be a stretch for the work needed...
BTW the Prospector I picked up a few pages ago is completely rehabbed, running, and playing great for its thrilled new owners

I wouldn't pay more than $300 for all the work it needs. I would keep looking - especially with less wear on the pf.. He is charging $500 because he probably thinks the paint job has increased the value of the game. Expect to pay around $300 - $600 for a decent project. Restored $600 - $900.

What are the other two games on either side of Rack a Ball? (see 2nd pic on right down below). One looks like a 60's GTB and the other looks like a Bally.

#2706 3 years ago

Thanks guys - never had either of those games..........

#2734 3 years ago

The backglass was broken on the Gator and he scanned the artwork and made a photo. So figure on sourcing another backglass. I don't see this game come up for sale too often.

#3065 3 years ago
Quoted from osudrummer:

Maybe I should try for this one? 20 minutes away...
Not familiar with this game though.

If bg is good rest of machine looks decent. Pf just dirty. Worth $400 unless backglass has a lot of flaking - poor pics.

#3081 3 years ago
Quoted from dasvis:

Looks just like the wiring in my High hand when I bought it. Many, many hours spent pouring over schematics tracing wires that the color was totally faded away on. It works 100% now though.

Not to mention the pile of kindling that was once your High Hand head before UPS destroyed it. And then finding parts to go in the donor head that were wired to a different game. Amazing.

#3095 3 years ago
Quoted from osudrummer:

Got a few better pics, backglass appears to be flaking in the reds. Is that what you all see? Still worth it?

Flaking in the reds is common for Gottlieb em's from the 70's.

If you're only 20 minutes away why don't you ask the seller if you can come see it and drop the lightboard down so you can see how bad the flaking is on the backglass. If your paint loss isn't real bad, you can seal it with Krylon Tripple-thick 0500. After it dries, touch up the areas that have flaking (I use acrylic paint). Then go over your touch-ups with Tripple-thick again. If you have any big flakes of paint say over 1/2" - 1" be careful - I usually use a piece of packing tape just on big pieces to seal them down. There's other methods too. On the areas you touch up that are backlit, I remove the bulbs behind it so the touch-ups don't stand out. The non-lit areas are the best because it doesn't matter.

Point out that the backglass has flaking and other problems you notice and offer $300. The worst he can say is no. I'd still take it for $400 personally from the looks. You can always sell it for what you got it for or more - shouldn't lose money.

Or, drop it off in Illinois next time you head my way

#3111 3 years ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

Ugh, that just makes the backglass harder to restore later when it gets worse. My Pharaoh has a backglass like that, and it's completely ruined and unrestorable because of packing tape being used on sections of it.
Packing tape is a short-term fix at best.

I only use small pieces of packing tape only on big flakes that have "bubbled"as a last resort on glasses that are really bad. I usually end up getting a repro glass if it is available. If a backglass is as bad as your Pharaoh, how are you going to restore it anyway? What's your method? The only reason I mentioned it is if you spray Tripple-thick on a large flake of paint, it may blow away because of the force of the compressed air in the paint can - and then if you retrieve it, it may fall apart. If you are real careful and hold your can back far enough away, you can gently spray the large flakes. The other method I know is to spray the whole glass and wrap with Saran. Some of these large paint flakes are barely hanging on because the heat from the 44 bulbs has caused them to bubble. You have to handle them with kid gloves.

He's been advertising these games for 10 or 15 years now on MPC.

Jacks games are rough from the pics he sent me 10 years ago and everyone else seems to agree. He gave me poor pics and I couldn't tell what they really looked like other than they looked worn.

A few people say if you go in person and cherry pick the better games of the bunch, and don't mind doing all the work that needs done to his games - he's not a bad guy to deal with.

Quoted from osudrummer:

I picked up the Golden Arrow tonight that was on Craigslist 5-6 days ago. She took the ad down and I got nervous but turned out she was holding it for me.
The grime on the playfield protected the paint so looks like it will clean up beautifully! She took $300 for it.

#3246 3 years ago
Quoted from PinballFever:

Is this a red flag to you guys?
Got a text from someone area code 505 saying he'll send me a certified check for the Jack in the Box listed in Craigslist for $700.
Here's his text, "Good, I will be buying the item from you so please kindly withdraw the advert, I don't mind adding $20 for holding the item for me.
I will be paying you via certified check from my bank it will be delivered to to you, so do you have a bank account and I'll need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check, your name, address, city, zip code and your last payment. I await your text soon. Thank you.
Asking price. I will make arrangements for the pick up as soon as you have your money I am completely satisfied with the advert".
So what do you guys think? Any advice? Only thing I can think is to make sure the check is exactly the the amount of the pinball.


All kinds of red flags here:

"item", "advert", poor sentence structure, etc., etc. Do you talk like he does? No, and he's sitting in a Starbucks in Nigeria with an Ipad.

Take cash only and maybe Pay Pal in some instances like ebay, etc.

These card hand based gottliebs all seem really cool in theory but I've never gotten the chance to play one to find out if it's actually anything more than knocking the whole bank down...

Royal Flush is worth trying out. Drop targets don't reset but still a good game.

Jacks Open has a progressive poker hand feature and resetting drop targets after you complete each hand.

I just bought out an operators inventory in a building in Iowa and brought the games back to Illinois. He had to be out of the building because he had sold it. There's 31 projects here - mostly 70's Gottlieb, Bally, Williams, Stern and Sonic em's - with a few early SS's. I posted a general ad in the Marketplace too. I'm including a spreadsheet. For more info. just pm me. Besides pick-up in Illinois I do ship door to door. Thanks.

Are "Bangs" a southern thing or slang for something? Never heard of it before.

Bangs = guns

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.

Quoted from PBMike:

That Pro Football looks nice, How much do you think it would cost to get it from CA to OH? Is it even worth it at that point?

About $400 - $450 so it's up to you. Hard to recover your shipping cost if you re-sell.

I would find one more local where you can drive to go get it to save on shipping. Pro Football comes up for sale quite a bit.

Quoted from amkoepfer:

If there is anyone that can pick the c37 up for me i would gladly pay. I emailed the guy and sounds like a good price on a game ive wanted for a long time! Pm me if you can do it. I cant make a road trip for a couple weeks

I just e-mailed the guy an hour ago and he just got back to me a little bit ago and said C-37 sold today for $625 and Lost World was still there.

#8087 1 year ago
Quoted from amkoepfer:

He emailed me, said the same, then said it was lost world that sold, not c37. I dont want to make an 8 hour round trip if thats the case

He first told me C-37 was not sold at the end of the day and would be 25% off tomorrow. Then, he got back to me and said C-37 sold - he had that and Lost World mixed up.

Quoted from mark532011:

Seems like a pretty good deal. Is it a joke?

Don't know. Cleaned and ready to go is what makes me wonder about the ad. May be legit though.

I do know if they are legit these free games go quick.

Quoted from bluespin:

Rodney at Chattanooga Pinball does had a reputation. He mostly sells arcades. Sometimes he uses old stock photos instead of photos of the current game. If buying from him probably best to inspect in person before purchasing. I’ll make a disclaimer when posting his games going forward

Yeah, as many games as you do post, it's tough to try to keep track of the sellers with the multitude of ads you find. We do appreciate the hard work you go through to post these.

Quoted from NicoVolta:

$325 for a 2001 in 2018? Whoa. In VT.
Only thing unusual I can see is the backglass colors have more green than most I’ve seen.

Quoted from ckcsm:

Yes it looks like too much green, you had me worried that it might have been a Ron Webb repro as I know he has done one in the past and I'm on his waiting list when he does this title again.
I found this image of one he did 4 years ago.
Still a nice deal, if I was closer I'd check it out.
[quoted image]

Could this be a sample? If you notice cabinet colors look different (could be a poor re-paint), backglass colors look different, and if you look below coin door there looks to be an "S" preceded by a space after the serial number but it could be anything - nick, imperfection. Just guessing.
