I am new to owning pins. If I end up coming across something I can't fix on my own, who is the best technician in the Milwaukee area?

#8655 5 years ago

I frequent the Milwaukee area if you can't find someone closer.

Give me a call if you like

Get any nibbles? Or just tire kickers? That is a good price... But like I ran into. Everyone gets excited and love BBH but then they see the price and it's like they have no idea and flake out, they think it should be a couple hundred.

Yeah I've got some nibbles. But it's a little less than I'm looking for. If it was routed and decent I'd take them, but this thing is just too damn nice! There's another pinsider that wants it at asking price, but it's a bit of a drive and I just don't have the time for it unfortunately.

I haven't heard from Ed, so no idea if he's coming here. He did stop in last year the Thursday before he was at Treasure Island.

Speaking of which - I can now join the "close but no cigar on Craigslist" club.

The $150 Sinbad from today's CL was being loaded up into someone's car as I pulled into the seller's driveway. Missed it by 20 or so minutes. Congrats on what looked to be a pretty damn clean Sinbad if you're on here. Hope it was just a fuse.

Ha, I probably could've gotten that one. Saw it right as it was posted. I decided against it because I'm out of room and the backglass had a lot of paint gone. Playfield looked great though...

I didn't want to look like a lunatic, so I didn't get that close, but yeah. Backglass clearly had issues, but the side of the cabinet that I saw looked great, and the lower half of the playfield looked pretty clean. Enjoy your bargain, mystery dude.

Stupid 20 minutes.

Wasn't me. I feel your pain though. A few months ago I missed out on a cheap Sorcerer in Milwaukee. I was so excited to see the CL post was only 10 minutes ago. I was 2nd in line.

Maybe we can start a thread to see who got it and then have people chime in to talk about how they tried to screw him out of it by telling the seller it was worth way more and offering more $$$.

Now I'm wishing it had been Ben loading it into his car.

That's low when people do that, it just turns into an auction. Even worse if the seller actually takes the higher offer as opposed to who emailed first. There was a high speed for sale a while back for $900. I emailed the guy saying I would take it. Later that day he emailed me back saying that someone was coming to pick it up the next day for $900, but if I wanted it I could give him $1000 and pick it up that night. Terrible business practice, and quite frankly just a jerk move. I emailed him back saying I wasn't interested and that he should do the right thing and sell it to whoever emailed first.

I didn't see any posting for this yet in the Events section:

#8691 5 years ago

Okay, okay, okay. I've got an itch for a project and I think I might need a Lethal Weapon 3.

HUO collector's quality pins need not apply. I'm looking for beat and cheap.

If it's fresh off route with broken plastics, tons of playfield wear and a fake mustache drawn on Mel, all the better.

If anyone has a line on such a beast, please let me know.

#8692 5 years ago
Quoted from policano:

Happy Fathers Day! 2 for $1 on PayRange all day to celebrate!

Just stopped by on my drive through from Omaha to Hudson. As always the pins were in great shape.

For those that haven't played GB. Tony's is the one to play. The volume is cranked so you can hear all the call outs.

I actually quit early because there were some newbies that were excited to play GOT. So I bailed so they could hear it. Hopefully they will be back for more.

#8693 5 years ago

I have a Speakeasy project if anyone wants to mess with it, I have all new boards for it, there is a short in the lamp matrix (is there a matrix on older games?)......anyway, I bought this from Rusty, I cleaned the topside and re-rubbered. It looks nice with that plastic PF or whatever its made of. Shoot me a pm if interested.

Also have a Blackwater 100 Id like to move out.....pm me

soak it in lacquer thinner and that shit will look like new.

I pulled the ad and decided to keep it. I figured for $1600 I'd rather keep it just to look at. Even though I don't play it much, I still like it.

TWD is tempting... but one does not simply get rid of LOTR.
