Quoted from coz6:

Hey wally did you purchase my FB a few years ago and make it into the MM? I know the person that picked it up said they were going to do that, and then was starting to think it was you - your threads are fun to read regardless. Louisville

Hey Coz
Thanks.
Turned yours into an AFM. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/theres-one-more-afm
It was like kissing a frog and having it become a beautiful princess.

Cool!!Awesome job.
Great project to pick. Bigger challenge with some of those game specific parts to overcome.

Hey, thanks, Chris.
I referenced your wonderful website gallery photos often when building SS. I especially like some of the teardown photos in the Past Restoration Gallery. Most helpful. It is great that you continue to make these available.

Wow, truly amazing...I am speechless...great job!

I can't even imagine doing just the wiring harness...let alone the thousands of other things...

I thought a Playfield swap was hard...this blows my playfield swap out of the water...

The tracer is functional but does not look original without the spiral.

[quoted image][quoted image]

This statement confuses me. What is the tracer and what the spiral?

Hey Cotton
What I meant is that the tool puts on the stripe in a straight line on the wire different than commercially available wire where the stripe kinda' spirals around the wire. I use the words tracer and stripe interchangeably. Probably should stick with one.
This is an example of wire available at BAA. http://bayareaamusements.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=HA-30022-08

Thanks. What are you using? Is that an acrylic paint pen and you just pull the wire through?

That is a cool tool.

I love stringing wire.

Yep, just pull the wire through. Rubber band keeps a little pressure on the pen. Small hole is at a 90 from pen hole and just slightly larger than 18ga wire so that it can be used for 18ga and 22ga. Paint pen is oil based.

Most retirees just sit around the house, drink beer and watch soaps.

Not fucking Wally. OH NO!!!!!! He builds pinball machines from scratch.

I wish you lived closer. I wouldn't sit around the house so much....or drink so much beer....or watch so many soaps.

I want to be Wally when I grow up.

Yep, wish that I lived closer also. Maybe I'll move to Mn, getting a little tired of the snow and cold here around Chicago.

Loving the wire striper - - wonder if you could slowly spin the wire in a drill as you walk backwards to get a spiral.

#67 1 year ago

Amazing job! The wire marker is something I would never have thought of, nice.

#68 1 year ago

Incredible work (again). You are an inspiration!

#69 1 year ago

Just incredible. You are the man!

Quoted from whthrs166:

Boy I would like to get a glimpse at your notes on those wiring harnesses.... those harnesses must have been a nice chunk of 1000 hrs!

Hey W166
Uploaded the SS wiring notes to my Onedrive. http://tinyurl.com/y4s729vw
Corrected some errors in the manual. (Hope that you can decipher my scribbling)

I got tired of the midwest, especially the snow and cold. I ended up moving to the Bay area. Now, I'm broke all the time, but there is sure a lot of pinball around here, and no damned snow storms.

Interesting.
I was reading your old post, and noticed a pattern.

Will CGC make Scared Stiff after the rumored Cactus Canyon Remake?

CGC should probably do a Medieval Madness Remake re-release. Wally made it twice.

Are you CGCs market research?
Does CGC pay you?
What’s next? Anything?
We need to know what’s coming!

Hey HeMan
Merely a coincidence. I would like to build a TAF one of these years.

That's what I'd do, Wally. If there's any game you could find parts for, that'd be one.

I have one in progress. Have all major parts besides the cabinet and wire Harness. Keeping an eye out before I modify a similar Harness

Where did you get the wire that you paint? Do you have a part number?

I like the painted wire approach as the baa wire is too spendy

Hey LL
I order hook up wire from Mcmaster Carr. https://www.mcmaster.com/hook-up-wire 8054T13 (22 ga) or 8054T15 (18 ga) There are no doubt better places but it seems like I always need something else from Mc so it is added to my order. They ship really quick, also.
I like using the BAA wire on above playfield wiring or other highly visible areas just because it looks so good.
Wally
