Hey gang,

Wow....I had no idea that there was a club for cocktail pins.

Couldn't see another Hearts Spade pictured in this thread... so here you go.

I found this absolute gem around 3 years ago, advertised as not working, so I just shelved it for a rainy day project.

After receiving some advice from a mate with a cocktail, then pulling out the boards, re-seating the chips and giving the connectors a really good clean, BINGO! She fired up first go. A bit more tinkering and we're about 95% there.

Playfield strip, Mills wax, Novus 1 on plastics and fresh white rubbers. It's not NIB but is pretty good for her age and she's beginning to sparkle like new again.

What drew me to this machine to begin with was the stunning art deco theme, which a few of the LAI cocktails seem to based on.

I've decided to leave the incandescent bulbs in for now and used traditional white rubbers, as I think modernising this playfield wouldn't go well with the theme, but we'll see.
