    Quoted from ultimategameroom:

    I scored these 4 neons about a month ago. Got them for free after a local bar closed.
    The miller lite needs to be repaired.
    Looks like one of the 2 transformers is bad. It and the blue moon are pretty large at almost 2-1/2 ft tall.
    I attached a pic of how it will look when fully operational.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    I'd like to get a neon sign,do you have any references for a company that makes them in the United States? I read that the ones from China have inferior transformers,and they useally break in less than a year.
    P.S
    I enjoy the pictures of your game room/museum

    Quoted from ralphs007:

    Search for neon signs in your area. Most large cities have at least one.

    If and when schools open up again. Check colleges to see if they have a neon art class. You can often get a great neon for cost.

    A Pinsider in Newburgh, NY sells them. I'll tell him to check this thread.

    Recently added a shuffleboard table to my room. The majority of my pins are around the corner. The Ducati image is by Bob Bullivant. It's probably the iconic Ducati image.

    A couple more views. Basically I have a 4k square foot garage with 3 cars, a pool room and my game area. The pinball sign was one that my wife had made for me for my birthday. Please don't notice the clutter in the one photo. I'm reorganizing my garage.

    Ralph , I bought my fosters neon at keystone home brew in Montgomeryville many years ago. You can try them.

    I used to see lots of vintage neon signs at renningers antiques in Adamstown pa.
    They used to have a really big indoor /outdoor flea market on Sunday mornings. Adamstown has dozens of antique stores.

    I’ve also seen them occasionally at Alderfer auction in Hatfield.

    Thanks I use to get my grape juice to make wine many years ago from Keystone.

    Quoted from TimBoch:

    I bought the ballwasher about 8 years ago while at the 3M Championship with my wife. It is signed by 13 of the “super seniors” attending the tournament. My father had passed away just a month before. I had played golf with him since I was 3. The autographs were people he watched play golf during their careers in the 60s and 70s. So i bought it in memory of him. Surprisingly it was my wife that pushed me to actually do it.

    Thx for sharing - what a wonderful story!

    Here’s some of my unique and must haves. Some of my zelda items, I really like the map print, with the master sword below
    99BE8F89-8FE0-4BAE-BD2A-DFCAAF5DB6A7 (resized).jpeg
    A must have is a jukebox. Mine is unique because I made it out of an old acer tablet. Below that is a game of thrones prop replica of Jon snows sword.
    1A03028B-5818-4799-AE0C-80B696D02C5D (resized).jpeg
    Closer look at jukebox, I run the app Jukey or Spotify for music.
    EC360DA9-80D4-457A-8E80-A6EA8739278B (resized).jpeg
    Another must have is a retro gaming center with crt tv.
    127CF9A2-2890-4211-BF50-F4CEEEEB2E8B (resized).jpeg
    I made this picture out of perler beads. Each pixel is a hand placed piece of plastic that has been melted together.
    74BA1504-CB1D-42F4-A4DE-9C509AA9C352 (resized).jpeg
    And here’s another one I made. These took many hours to create, I doubt I’ll ever get rid of them.

    I did a charcoal drawing (admittedly mostly traced direct from a tv screen) of my favorite art from Windwaker on parchment paper that I then burned and stained with coffee. It’s my favorite piece of video game art.

    Some amazing setups (especially in the home theater realm) in this thread and almost need a dedicated thread for amazing Zelda memorabilia (and custom Zelda pins). Put in a climbing wall opposite a 100" projector screen but moved Stern POTC (live at Lake and we pirates) and NFL Blitz outta fall zone.

    Are you an aviator?

    Love what you did with Tron. Wish I had the space to do that to mine.

    I do have the same lighted table!

    I think this might be my next purchase for the room.

    I remember that on Kickstarter - I looked at it a _long_ time before not going for it.

    #227 47 days ago

    I shouldn't have clicked on that, now I want one. Are they easy to program? Do they have a list of designs you can just click?

    Added another cool (to me) piece last week. I saw Chris Franchi posted a link on his FB page to a company called Retro-a-go-go
    https://www.retroagogo.com/
    Went to check it out and I bought some pins and this very cool (large) mask for wall display
    Doug P'gosh is the artist - It's almost 2 feet tall and glows in the dark too!

    2 yers ago there was an embarrassing thread with a link to a go fund me, to help with this project. That didn’t go far. But a year ago he stared another thread with the build process.

    This is definitely in the top 5. Maybe top 3 best Game rooms

    Putting a quarter in the correct slot (watch the movie) activates the motorized door and unlocks the mag locks. It was programmed to start the Journey song and turn on the machines as well but I don’t use that feature much.

    That was kinda a stressful time and a bad idea a friend had. The project went way way over the budget I gave my contractor. Contrary to popular belief I’m just a working stiff who happened to buy a downtown condo at the right time, sold it and had left over funds to try to create my ultimate man cave. I’ve always wanted a fun basement to entertain with.

    I can literally picture this thanks to the movie. Outstanding, my pinball friend.

    #239 45 days ago

    I just watched the videos. Wow. There are no words to accurately describe how freaking sweet that basement is. You’re living the dream!

    #240 43 days ago

    Well done.

    On the stonepusher table, how does it work? Is there like a cnc-table controller mech underneath with a magnet?
    Great idea, but the price tag dicourages.

    #241 43 days ago

    Cool, hadn't seen that table!

    But it'd be a waste for me since one can only rarely see the top of my current coffee table, with so much crap on it that replenishes as if by magic as quickly as I clear it off. Maybe once the kid moves away...
