Those are killer Daddio! And yer not too late; it looks like tonight. He's in South Carolina and I'm in California; it'll be late afternoon for me prolly.
I'ma use all of those, Cowboy! Thanks

I can already answer the led one. Incandescent all the way. He is most def not in the rainbow unicorn set.

Ha! Well, I like to use LEDs, but I basically just use Frosted Sunlights or Frosted Warm Whites. So it keeps the colors looking natural, but brightens things up. At a minimum, I like to do the GI and backbox, so that I don't have to worry as much about burnt up GI connectors when the game is left on.

I never understood putting colored LEDs underneath a colored insert lens. The lens is all ready colored, so a white light will still show the color just fine, and the decals on the inserts will be more visibile. Now if the insert is clear all ready, then adding some color could be interesting, maybe...

This should be a good show.

I think so too. I'll prolly milk it into 2 at least. LOL!
Kyle and I are still working out timing. I keep forgetting about that 3 hour time diff.
But I got a filler episode scheduled for 2nite about my trip to YO-Din's to get my Teacher's Pet.

Thanks for the support Brotatoes!

#55 18 days ago

Ok Pinbromatoes, Episode #24 is live. I'm still trying to negotiate the 3 hour time diff with my boy Kyle from Marco, so that will be happening later in the week. Meanwhile, I have a fix for all you Yo-Din fanbois out there:

So you claim to have been raised with guns yet you make a statement about people buying "automatic weapons"? Those have been banned since 86. Maybe stick to pinball talk.

#57 15 days ago

Just finished conversating with my brotato Kyle at Marco. We ended up talking almost 40 minutes. Should I divvy it into three episodes or bust it as an EP? We talked about everything from The Pinball Pirate to repairs to LED's to Marco reverse-engineering old mechs to craft beers in South Carolina to how killer is Rollergames to Steve Kordek is God... and a whole lot in between!

4 x 8+ minutes
3 x 10+
1 x 38ish

Which?

#58 15 days ago

3

#59 15 days ago

That's what I was thinking, but that would mean that I might have to listen to it again, thereby breaking my podcast rule!
So I will be dividing it into three equal parts just looking at the waveform in the editing software!

#60 15 days ago

Ok my pinbrotatoes, Episode 25 is gradually going live in the podcast universe. Here we have Part One (of Three) of my live interview with Kyle Spiteri of Marco Specialties, everybody's go-to for pinball parts and suchlike. We had a very wide-ranging convo, so it's a 3-parter! We talked about lots and lotsa shtuff... like working for and knowing pinball legends Like Mike Schiess of PPM and the Pinball Pirate, how he got a job at Marco, and how Steve Kordek is God, how Rollergames rules but is a pain in the ass, reverse engineering old mechs, that one bulb you can't reach, led's v incandescent and Classic Ballys and Sterns... also lots more.

#62 14 days ago

Kyle was a champ, and we had a blast, and I think I might try to get everybody's fave Gottlieb EM Playfield remake dude, Wade Krause to call me up for my next special guest!

Part 3 of Kyle's interview tomorrow!

#63 13 days ago

While Mark is serving time in the Pinside hoosegow, he asked me to post part three of his interview with Kyle Spiteri. Enjoy.

No worries. I was having issues doing the copy/paste from the app.

This pic was dated July 21, and said, "A new load of pinball wood just arrived...this will become Fast Draw, Strange World, and Eldorado Playfields."

Yep. I sent my $$. Just curious where they are now in the process

#74 12 days ago

Sorry to upset you, shinyball. I assumed since you're in this thread that you were interested in the podcast.

A question for whatever mod rides herd on this thread: I was just wondering, if Tony (pismoarcade) hadn't reached out, how long might have this "unintentional" freeze lasted? Nobody responded to my email about it, and if I hadn't knowed somebody who knowed somebody, I'd probably still be frozen out, with no reason why and no way back.

Not trolling, just curious. This was kinda outta the blue.

Also:
I'm still looking for your questions for my Brotato Wadeo Tornado Krause, everybody's fave Gottlieb repro guy. We be talking soon.
For those of you who don't know from Wade, here's a video from 2013:

If yer an Instagram kinda person, you can follow me (@mrcinslo), Kyle (@blackcatpinball), and Wade (@wadeotornadopinball) for extra fun!

Update: Wade Krause and I are still trying to synch schedules, but for those of you waiting on news about your Fast Draw playfields... It looks like he's getting ready to start silk-screening, testing and suchlike. So there you go. Hopefully, I'll get the full scoop this weekend.

And if you haven't listened to my 3-part with Kyle from Marco, you should. And post follow up questions because he said that he was up for another chat down the line.

Pinball on.

Sweeeeeettt! Make sure he knows no one is rushing him. My brother John in NC started a list to get these re-run 5 years ago. Here's the thread.

We've been patiently waiting for Wade to get back around to them. Around 2-3 months ago Wade let us know they are up next. Awesome. So, when you asked for Wade questions, I thought that'd be a good one. But, no one is in a rush on this end.

Nice episode on Heat Wave. I love that game

#81 7 days ago

Jigs thanks for the kind words Heatwave is the epitome of that just one more game.
I'll be sure to emphasize to Wade that ain't nobody rushing the process. You know quality is job 1 for him.

Pinball on.

Talking to Wade in an hour or so. Said he was in the middle of silkscreening.
Hmmm... I think that looks like...
