    Quoted from oldcarz:

    Speaking of unreasonable for a game room.

    Love the weinermobile on top!

    I see a few ‘favorite grandpas’ here

    Quoted from oldcarz:

    For this thread, I'll add a few more things that are coinop related -
    Pelham Puppets Marionette Theater. Been modified from the original 8 track loop to play a cassette tape of children's songs. Timer runs for about 2 minutes while the puppets dance. I have various tapes for it, but also modified it to run with a Sonos speaker under the unit, which will play whatever song/play list that I, or the kids, want. With the changing tastes of my grandchildren, it currently is playing sound track from Trolls
    Lil' Trigger horse ride. This runs on a dime, but no sound card currently installed. Could be added but chose not to. This is the 1/2 size version of Sandy. These too, stayed outside all year, but small enough to have in the house.
    Mini carousel - at 4' in diameter, it could go into a gameroom, but keeping it outside. Not really afraid of the elements...these stayed outside of grocery stores for years without casualty. I had the coin box mech removed and it runs on a remote control fob.

    Looking to purchase a reasonably priced 16' - 22' Big Ball Bowler in the Midwest - willing to travel for the right deal. Preferably original and working or close to it. Have desireable Gottlieb em's to trade.

    Dammit, wish I had room for one. Passed on a couple already.

    Almost finished with setting up my downstairs game room in our new house! Got this set up a couple of nights ago...having a blast with it!

    Looks terrific and will no doubt be your most popular machine.

    #1358 36 days ago

    Recently picked up this nos Coke 'musical slider bank' for my diner. When the lid is lifted a 'things go better with coke' 14 sec tune plays & by moving the bottles a glass clicking sound emits. Anyone have one of these? On mine the button which releases the tune does not travel far enough & the damn thing appears a sealed unit. Also bottles do not move freely. For the button I am thinking of devising an upper spring mech but interested if anyone else has encountered these issues.

    I've been waiting until we built a new house that had room for one. Can't wait to roll the 1st ball.

    Nice! Is that where the bowler will stay? Wondering if that's enough room while you are playing pinball

    Just a note regarding a resto of my United 1962 Tropics ball bowler recently. During servicing of a player strike/spare unit I noticed that the tail of the ratchet wheel torsion spring was preventing activation of the zero position switches. Realignment of the tail fixed the problem.

    Anyone else experienced this issue?

    Picked this Pool Alley up several years ago from a local paper ad. Looking for motivation to get it working - anyone have a lead on some 81/2 pins? There are plenty of the 10" pins out there, but this uses the smaller ones.

    Update: Got some pins today from Tim, wanted to send out a big thanks! I've been looking on ebay and various internet sites on and off for a long time for these, great to finally get some.

    #1366 13 days ago

    You can use the longer pins, and an adapter that screws on to the back of the mounting, giving it the side-by-side holes that would mount the United short pin. You can cut the bottom off of the longer pin, and it'll still look right. Takes a bit of modification to make it work.

    Nice looking machine John. Odd to see an old game like this with absolutely no graphics on the front or side of the game. GLWS

    After trying various spring/washer combinations to get the music button to activate when the lid is open with no success I found a dab of 'stuk tack' on the button provides sufficient adhesion for the lid to consistently lift the button and the music activated.
