Quoted from hawkeyexx:

Finally got around to making a clear card catcher for my slugfest and hotshots. Also added a yellow sticker to the card dispenser [quoted image]

Great idea, looks like a solid catcher.

I’m looking for a slugfest in the mid Atlantic area. Anyone have one for sale?

#1153 18 days ago

I bought and received my “stadium “ spot lights from comet pinball to light my playfield . Is there a preferred or god place to get power for them? I don’t want to fry anything. Thanks

#1154 15 days ago

Never actually seen one in person until I was loading this one. Heavier and bigger then I would have thought....pretty nice snag for 1400 Cdn.....about a grand US.

Appears to be....very dirty for sure and I'm working 12 hour days all weekend so all I could do was dump it in the mancave until Monday. Its a "worked when we put it in storage" guess....

Ok.....

Finally found a nice Slugfest. I’ve read through this entire thread top to bottom and have found some great information. The following are still on my want list:

1)Mirror blades or graphics matching inside side art blades

2)A custom bat option.

3)Some card dispenser help. Motor works fine but the cable / spring / wheel isn’t working. My cable has slack in it

4)Need a source for Non-Glare (PDI) Glass sized to fit a Slugfest

There’s a custom bat option? I gotta find that!

I will take some pictures of my dispenser. Is your cable broken?

#1161 7 days ago

Here is the location of the cable and I pointed to where it attaches.

For those of you that have card dispensers, where are you buying unwaxed cards?

Flea markets are a pretty good source of fun cards, lots of bulk sports cards but alot of the fun movie/music/TV cards that they were printing in the 90s. Since you're an Ohio guy, Jamie's or Rogers are both great spots.

If you want to keep with the year of the machine. 1991 is the worst year in the history of sports cards. Total over saturation of the market. Any hobby shop should have boxes of 1991 baseball cards they would gladly rid themselves of.

#1166 7 days ago

I have found great deals on ebay there are tons of cards for sale. I have put newer cards in mine and the dispenser works great. I put new o-rings on the dispenser roller and adjusted it to the new cards. If you need help with o-ring size and how to adjust send me a PM or I can post in here.

#1167 7 days ago

Big question - what is everyone’s 2 cards they display by the dmd?

Kirby Puckett x2 was my choice.

I've picked some cheap commons from a local shop before, but they're a random mix of years and manufacturers.
The replacement cards an operator would get back in the day were "1991 Topps Vending Cards". Check eBay, plenty still available...even 24 box cases.

Quoted from Apollon:

2)A custom bat option.
[quoted image]

Found these mini bats that seem to fit well, but I can't figure out a way to secure it on top firmly.
I don't think just epoxy would hold up to the hammering the bat takes.
Thought about cutting in half and trying thin screws from the bottom, but that could look butchered if not done right.

Nice! I haven't seen one that cheap here in the states any condition for 2+ years (I realize you are in Canada). Nice score!

And other then some heavy duty cleaning, unsticking a couple 'pitch' buttons, and replacing the battery pack.....worked like a charm. *horseshoe falls out of ass*

I want to add spotlights to my Slugfest also. Did you watch this video from Comet about installing the spotlights:

How do you get to the dmd to put the two cards in?

Slide out the glass and under the glass thats protecting tge DMD you will see brackets holding the metal track for that glass. Undo the nuts and push the small bolts outwards.
