Hey All,

Looking for a coin pusher to add to the basement. Single unit. Simple.!!!

I’m looking for the one where you drop the coin in the top and can use the slide to aim.

Used and work correctly is what I’m aiming for.

Does anyone have a local powdercoat shop that does good work? The place I used moved out of town.

Did a little 360 video of Fargo Pinball for anyone who has heard of us but has yet to make it up to Fargo. Pinsiders are always welcome so let us know if you come to town.

I've used Powder Coating Technologies in Plymouth and SE Custom PowderCoating in Savage with good results.

I've used PCT before also with good results and they aren't to far from you but stay away from Twin Cities Powder Coating, they did two of my games with good results but when they did my GB Pro they messed up about a 4 inch long area on one of the legs and when I brought it to their attention the owner came out and started swearing at me and told me to, "get your Fing shit out out of here and don't come back". He never did fix the problem. I put that leg on one of the back legs so you can't see it.

#11766 3 years ago

Thanks for the info!

#11767 3 years ago

How about powder coaters in Southeast Wisconsin?

Anyone know of reasonably priced place?

Also consider the under-the-radar coater Doug Arntson in Corcoran, MN:

http://www.powdercoatman.com/

He is a small shop, which allows him to offer very good rates. He's done pinballs before. Very nice guy!

FYI: he's on a bike tour this month but should be back to work come October.

Congrats on the autographed apron cards. Impressive!

Now I can stand *behind* your new pinball and vaguely imagine I'm standing in front of it! Brilliant!

For you ToM hunters...

minneapolis.craigslist.org link

His number is $1K above market, especially with the monochrome DMD, but this title seems to get hotter by the week. I know FatPanda just sold a re-import a week ago for, what, $6K? I say sit tight for a remake from CGC, but don't tell the seller of this original I told you so!

Today marks my 46th Anniversary of SS Billiards. Seems like only yesterday my Mother and I opened the front door for the first time at 3pm. A couple hours later we had our first customer, Mike McNeil . I am grateful to all who patronized our business and helped through the years. And only 1,461 days until the 50th Anniversary. Anyone stopping in today and wishes me a happy anniversary, I'll give you six credits on your favorite pinball machine. LTG : )

When I first started going to SS, that number was a lot higher. Scary how fast that number is dropping.

Sort of last minute notice, but I'll be hauling a large enclosed trailer (mostly empty) from central MN to Madison this weekend and back on Sunday (moving some furniture to my son's apt in Madison). If anyone needs a pin transport from the Madison area back to central Wisc or the twin cities area on Sunday, I've got plenty of space and I'm sure we can work something out. Possible even for a trip in the other direction (TC to Madison) on Friday night depending on timing. PM me for more details.

On the plus side, I was able to snag a last minute entry into the Mad Rollin pinball tournament on Saturday with my son. Looking forward to meeting everyone there. And I hear Spooky pinball is giving away a NIB TNA w/ Butter cabinet (#302) at the tournament. Ok, entries are closed for this already and I hear they only got one entrant in the giveaway. Score!!

Congrats Lloyd. Truly an awesome accomplishment.

There are countless stories.

Some very funny ones. Some not so funny. And some sad ones, the ones that aren't with us anymore. It hurts to find out a person who was a friend/customer/nice person, isn't with us anymore.

I've been blessed with many people who are more than just a customer.

Sorry, seems to have been some miscommunication.

You are now at the back of the line for TNA (#550 which is kind of cool) and #302 will be auctioned off at MRP

Didn't open it, bought an existing business. It opened in 1970, same year as your beloved Mustang.

Anybody have any recommendations for board work locally? The Shadow has been experiencing WPC resets; I replaced some of the board components, but don't want to dig too heavily if I can avoid it and it makes sense financially.

Have you tried resetting the connections on the boards?

#11795 3 years ago

Yes I have reset everything and I am looking at BR2 and it doesn't look great (brown donut around a leg). I am going to reflow and check diodes. I will call John if all else fails I guess

Hi all, are there retailers in the MN area you’d recommend to purchase a NIB? Looking for Metallica or Aerosmith, or maybe both. Peters Billiards is the only one I see on google. Anyone you’d recommend having one shipped from outside MN? I trust your local expertise. Thank you!

The pinballwarehouse will set you up with any stern you'd like. They're local in Fridley

#11800 3 years ago

If you buy in MN you will pay tax as well. Call mellissa at cointaker. She has the best prices. Will be hundreds cheaper then pinball warehouse or peters delivered to your door. 570-847-9595 is her direct number.
