Quoted from BillPinball:

We are saddened to announce that the current club location for Fargo Pinball will be closing on Sunday July 26th. This has not been an easy decision to make but with the current health crisis it is the right one.

Sorry to hear Bill.

Best wishes going forward !

We are saddened to announce that the current club location for Fargo Pinball will be closing on Sunday July 26th. This has not been an easy decision to make but with the current health crisis it is the right one.
We had been looking at moving the location this fall and will continue to evaluate the potential for a new location.
We are however working on plans to continue with a showroom for machine sales and will continue to help people service their games.
With the closing we have the following used titles for sale:
Xenon
Police Force
Monster Bash
Haunted House
Back to The Future
Mr & Mrs Pacman
Baby Pacman
Tommy
Oktoberfest
If any spark your interest please feel free to PM me.
Thank you for the continued support over the years.

Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

Wanted in Minneapolis: Pinball-specific Box for Shipping
I'm hoping to find a complete/intact box (and as much of the original packing, including the mini pallet) to ship a Stern pinball across the country. A Stern box would ideal, but I'm assuming any box/pallet for a standard-body pinball would be fine. Can only drive thirty minutes or less outside of Minneapolis to pick up as I'll be enlisting a van-owning friend's help for transport.
Thanks.

Hey! I hope that means you finally sold your TWD. If that’s the case, that sale was well deserved.

I don’t get it. It’s such a great pin and priced more than fairly. Before you ask, I already had a TWD.

#14458 72 days ago

In IL. Have a friend who's looking for a ToM or WMS IJ with a nice playfield. He doesn't work on games so he's looking for something recently shopped/ refurbished playing 100% with no issues. Nice playfield but doesn't have to be perfect, he wants full LED's, original cabinet decals fine as long as fade not real bad, - a few imperfections, dings, scratches ok. Mods a plus. LMK if you have one or the other and the price you're asking.

#14459 71 days ago

SE Wisconsin. Looking for a near perfect pin sub 5K range. Not real picky on theme, but the pin has to be HUO and preferably 1st owner, mint. I'm willing to pick up. PM with any thoughts.

#14460 71 days ago

should be able to find a HUO rolling stones or avengers in that range easy enough.

Should be able to find some nice early SS games in that range. Otherwise some Stern Pros or B-title Bally/WMS might fit the bill. I wouldn't be so hard up on 1st owner or HUO, as games can change a few hands or be on location and still look/play like new.

Starting Saturday July 25th, 2020 in Minnesota. Public places to play pinball will be requiring masks be worn. No longer an option.

I hope it helps. Definitely better than having places close again.

#14468 69 days ago

Looking for some new mirror blades for a wpc 95 game quickly in the Minneapolis area. Pm me. I’ll pay a premium on them and can pick up. Just looking locally before I overnight a set.

#14469 69 days ago
Quoted from Krupps4:

Hey! I hope that means you finally sold your TWD. If that’s the case, that sale was well deserved.

I can get palettes all day long. Just make sure they are sturdy. I warehouse troll for those. It’s easy.
I’ve given up on boxes. Most folks toss them and it’s a pain to repackage especially without a nice cardboard stapler. (I can lend it to you, if you go that route.
Spend $30-45 on two To three sheets of 1 1/2 in pink panther insulation at Home Depot and custom cut and form to the machine. Shrink wrap after.
Look at the pics in my shadow pending ad for what the end result looks like.
Shipping games is a pain. Extra hours and extra material costs. Something to consider. Frankly, I’d take 200 less to not ship.

Any pins for sale/trade out there?
I'm still looking for a project.
(Note: a "project" for me means a flipper rebuild, minor board repair, a new ramp or fistful of plastics, and some LED's. That sort of thing. It doesn't mean to me what it means to someone like John Ross.)

If anyone is looking for an excellent 90's Williams game, I have a really nice ST:TNG I just put up for sale in the marketplace. I have owned the game since 2001.

#14477 63 days ago

I've got a Gottlieb Royal Guard I'm going to list soon if anyone is interested. Works 100%, new legs and levelers, Titan Rings, Comet 2SMD Sunlight in the GI and backbox, inserts are still incandescent, rebuilt flippers, new flipper bats, all mechs cleaned and resleeved, pops were rebuilt, backglass has touchup on the reds, but otherwise looks good. Solid cabinet, bottom board was replaced. A little bit of wear on the pf but looks good. The game is pictured on IPDB. Plays fast. Let me know if you're interested.

#14478 63 days ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

Just to clarify that it is my game (last set of pictures from Quy) that is on IPDB.

If it isn't a System 11, it has no value to him. Although there is a rumor that this is part of his pinball purge to make room for more kids toys.
