Timely...I'm in the market for one. Let me know if any one wants to sell.

#152 7 months ago

I got offered 5.5k for mine and didn't even consider it. There unattainable in mine mind unless your building one

#153 7 months ago

I've heard that before. You should have taken the 5.5

#154 7 months ago

besides, why chime in. I'm looking for a seller. Obviously you are not one.

Quoted from Methos:Any idea what a Star Gazer would fetch nowadays, with one of John's PFs with it?

I was referring to this post.....that's why I'm chiming in

And I'm sure most ppl with a restored SG anit letting it go at 5.5k

#157 7 months ago

Doesn't matter to me. I only placed a classified add. Nothing to do with you.

#158 7 months ago

what's one realistically worth, nice original shape. I know of one that I am considering. backglass is perfect, playfield has a little wear.

#159 7 months ago

Has anyone tried to color match the blue on a Star Gazer cabinet? I’ve heard Rustoleum Universal, Cobalt Blue is close. Just wonder if anyone has other suggestions.

Since my jigs are complete I no longer need to use my play field to check for fit. So I'll start getting it together with the proper parts so I can play it! If anyone wants me to put up the build like I did with the insert panel just say so. Meanwhile, I managed to get the rails on today.

Does anyone have a material list for the number and type of light bulb sockets that are required in the playfield and backbox? More interested in the type/size in the playfield but a list would work if anyone knows for both in making a complete order. Thanks.

Star Rollovers: It is like the one above but it has a shorter barrel on it. I can find it.

I'm on a hunt for a beautiful Star Gazer and have to admit I'll pay too much for it:

In regards to the stand up targets on this machine; is there a supplier that has them in stock or an alternative target that can be modified? I have not found one yet. I know the target face may have to be switched.

#169 8 days ago

Bob Langelius produces excellent replacement targets, both yellow and white.

Bob makes great replacement targets.

If you have strange tastes with colors, Big Daddy has some stand up targets that will work. I wish he had some in yellow.

If I recall well, these are actually also manufactured by Bob.

Thanks for the advise. I did that the other day and am just waiting on the response.

What I am really looking for is the actual switch that the target resides in. I know PBR is out of stock and there are other suppliers on-line that are out as well. Just wonder if there are any substitutes available or I just have not found the target switch in stock yet. If there is a know source just let me know or PM me. Much appreciated.

Looking to get some input what a nice condition but unrestored Stargazer is worth?

Quoted from rvdv:

Today, this market, with no information at all and "nice" is subjective (i.e. play field condition?, back glass condition? ), I think it would start at $2500/$3000. And probably a lot more.

FWIW, I paid $2K for my unrestored example 4-1/2 years ago.

If the backglass is a 9+ and playfield has typical wear, then $3.5K would probably be the low end.

#176 5 days ago

Thanks for the input
New back glass and game needs some tech work and shopping out, playfield is very nice
Can as well

#177 5 days ago

The last few have sold or traded in the 6k-7k range.
