Of course not... You would never complain!

You do start to question sanity when you are putting an addition to fit 80+ pins on a 1800sqft house

I mean I've thought about dropping my basement and extra foot or two so the machines can have their toppers

You should question your sanity.......why did you not buy a house that can house 100+ pins to start with.

#14554 1 year ago

Hey guys, I'd like to sell my Space Station and Bride of Pinbot both in very nice shape with mods $1700 for each game. Pick up only but I can help getting out of my basement and into your vehicle. Play before you buy. Bring your own dolly. No trades. Thanks, Paul

MustangPaul nice meeting you tonight great MODs you’ve done to your game will be in touch soon!

#14560 1 year ago

FYI that space station has a really good playfield and ramps are perfect. Cabinet also amazing for its age. If anyone thinking about this game it’s worth a look.

#14561 1 year ago

EJS.....Just moved to MSP from Louisville and landed in Maplewood (the south part). You look like someone I need to meet!

MustangPaul......pm’d you about Space Station. Want it!

TBD. Everything into storage in Springfield, MO for a minute. Then start looking. Most likely in that area since that is where her family is at. As long as i have an airport and good internet I'm all good.

#14573 1 year ago

I couldn't agree more. .

In the end since I live on the road its best for my wife to have her family around as a support network with 2 kids under the age of 2 1/2.

I never thought I would leave the state i love but this is all about family.

Wow I feel lucky that I made it to one of your pinball parties. Best wishes on getting a new house with loads of space and a walk out basement.

Take care of yourself Chris. You will be missed. Hopefully we will see at a show in the future.

Trying to make some space and cash to get ready for a fall restoration of an older game...

I have what I would consider a light project Champion Pub that I picked up last year.
It will be a solid players machine once done. I have a whole bunch of parts and various unobtainium (boxer parts, jump rope plate, yadda yadda) amassed as I was trying to find time to tear it down, clean it, and the whole shebang...

Figured instead I would see if anyone local is interested in taking it all before I run through it. All there and should be a fun one for somebody that likes a little work in order to save some cash.

$4700 as it sits, no hassle, cash sale.

If I shop it out then I would just keep it for a while and then price at $5200+.

So basically a $500 discount for someone that runs through it themselves.

I will grab some photos and blast the usual spots later, but before I do that (and possibly decide F it and to just clean it myself..) I figured I would offer to the regional thread.

#14578 1 year ago

Does anyone need playfield glass (free)? I bought two sheets of Invisiglass to replace my regular glass, so have no need for it. One of them looks like it's in near perfect condition, the other has a small scratch that you can barely see on it. I thought about trying to store it "just in case," but honestly, ever since a tempered glass shower door shattered in my hands a couple of years ago, I'm a little nervous about it and don't want to have to clean it up if it breaks on me in storage. So if someone has a need for it, DM me - I can just leave it outside so it will be a contactless pickup as well.

I could use a sheet

#14580 1 year ago

The glass has been claimed. Also, because my original message maybe wasn't clear -- I'm keeping the Invisiglass and giving away the regular glass that Invisglass replaced.

Yeah, wasnt sure anyone would even want it and thought about just tossing it - glad I didn't!

If my basement ceiling had been a foot taller, I had wanted to have a golf simulator. But instead it became a game room.

#14585 1 year ago

Thanks John and Tony for the quick sales, 2 pins in 3 days is FAST. All funds going toward the new 363cid 525+hp motor for the Mustang.

#14586 1 year ago

I will be in this thread a lot more soon, selling our house in Clearwater FL and moving up to Appleton WI. We are coming up for the final house hunt/make offer trip 9/10. bringing all our machines up with us to build out a basement pinball bar room.

#14587 1 year ago

And a shout-out to MustangPaul as well. What a stand-up individual! One of the finest Space Station machines I have ever seen, now residing in Maplewood. And the bonus tour of not only the game room but of the Mustang project as well was superb. Thanks. After years of living all over the globe, I don't think I could have landed in a better place than the back home upper Midwest! Three cheers!

Welcome to the area! You are landing in what, in my humble opinion, is one of the best pinball locations around. District 82 (90+ immaculate machines), Player 2 Arcade Bar (now with two locations), plus some amazing home collections are all right in your new backyard, and it's home to the Fox Cities Pinball League. Plus Milwaukee and Madison offer more great locations (GARCADE! and many others), awesome tournaments, and amazing home collections. And the cream of the crop...which unfortunately couldn't happen this year, but will make a triumphant return...Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee. Many, many great people in the area. Fun times are in store for you!

welcome and congrats! A bunch of great pinheads in the Appleton area!

I think FL is one of the last spots in the country to find deals... be sure to bring a few more along with you for the move

You will be referred to as "New Eric Strangeway" sometimes. Don't worry about it though.

Paul is one of the nicest pinheads in MN. Lots of enthusiasm and passion for the hobby as well.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

Well he hasn't bought a house yet so .. POSSIBLY!? Strangeway didn't live in Appleton proper though I don't think.

#14595 1 year ago

Jealous of the pinball scene in Appleton/Green Bay, lots of machines old and new in a 30 minute radius. Grew up in Appleton but moved to the Twin Cities post college. Almost makes me wish I stayed!

Hard to complain, though, as there are many great places and people I've met here in Minnesota. Just a bit more spread out. Excited for tournaments to get back up and running.

#14596 1 year ago

I have relatives in Winneconne -- I should look up some places to hit up next time I'm in that area. Didn't realize there was a lot of pinstuff going on.

Hit the nail on the head. Paul is a great guy. I was at his place once and he couldnt have been a more gracious host.

#14598 1 year ago

I have the Dialed In LE on Craigs in Rochester. Took a look at the total lifetime plays by request for an interested buyer and had to ask myself what are the odds?
An even 500.
... and yes this a shameless plug also.
