Looking to trade a EBD for a TAXI or WW

#16003 10 months ago

I have that GB spacer that I can give anyone with a GB pro that PBL sells if anyone is interested.

#16004 9 months ago

I have a friend that has a fairly nice Elvira and the party monsters and NBA fast break he wants to trade for something newer. Pro model of something. 2 for 1. or a LOTR.

#16005 9 months ago

Non pinball item. I have a Pachislo slot machine in great shape, set to quarters.. $98.00

#16006 9 months ago

Still a long shot, but...

I'm still hoping to find a loaner Stern SPIKE 2 node board #0, Stern part number 509-1003-01.
If any operators in the region have a SPIKE 2 game that is down for whatever reason and you can spare the board for a few weeks, I would gladly pay you a fair sum to rent it while I'm waiting for mine to return from the shop. I have only one game, so I can't just play my "other" games while this one is out of service.

Thanks for reading my post.

#16007 9 months ago

That Shadow on Craigslist.... belong to anybody here?

I’d be interested but have to wait for my roadshow to get sold and I’m holding it for a local pinsider.

#16008 9 months ago

Anyone know of a nice\working sys11 FS in the Twin Cities area? Getting the bug to get back in to pin ownership.

Also, what's the current market/price range for nice/working sys11s?

Yes it’s e-rock ‘s. I considered going after it myself, but I’m waiting out on a decent priced CFTBL or Radical.

Too much right now. Paid 3k for Whirlwind last spring and 2200 for a Mousin Around. Today’s prices make that seems like a smoking deal.

You were pretty good to me Still need to get that playfield swapped. I’m happy to take that Radical off your hands if you’re getting tired of it

It’s Brobra’s now I needed to get some use out of my shadow decals.

#16017 9 months ago

Ok, I'm draining this entire MN/WI thread. Maybe I'm just really cranky today and very minor things are setting me off irrationally, but I need to step away before I say something stupid.

#16018 9 months ago
Quoted from HHaase:

Like announcing a drain? Too late.

#16019 9 months ago

Now now Hhaase, no need to fret. Rest assured it will be back on craigslist in a week for $1k more than you could have had it yesterday.

Speak your mind. Can’t be any more stupid than some of the things I’ve said on here over the years...

Greetings.

Time for something different. Listed my Gottlieb Bank Shot in the Marketplace. Located on the far Eastern edge of St. Paul. Willing to drive/meet-up within, say, 2-3 hours if that helps. Would also consider putting towards a trade for (1) Taxi or (2) a Gottlieb 1970's drop-target wedge head.

I personally don’t think drain announcements are a big deal but per pinside they are. HH, you might want to edit that part out if you are worried about getting modded and I’m not talking color LEDs

It’s not a wedge head but have toyed with letting my Big Brave go. Really nice playfield and NOS plastic set and new drop targets. New flipper kit and new coils cause some operator only had Williams coils on hand.

Ha! I also messaged on the Shadow also but I have to work till next week and I knew it wasn't going to last that long. I had a DP Pro in my work office that my coworkers played and loved. I'm also stuck at work (kinda on call) and now that I had a machine here, I really miss it. I'm thinking of something more simple like a Meteor or system 11 game but I really haven't decided yet.

Thanks for bringing it all the way from Colorado for me

I’m glad to bead back (sorry E, it was so good, I had to borrow it)

#16028 9 months ago

Happy Sunday, I hope all are well.

Can anyone provide a recommendation for someone in or around Chicago/Milwaukee who could be hired to replace the decals on a newer Stern? Or be hired to oversee the process?

I've watched all the videos. After watching the videos it seems doable. Which tells me help is needed. Thank you.

Lots of great vinyl/sign shops in our area. I'd check with one of them. I've had Oconomowoc Sign do a bunch of work for my shop and atv club. they are in ixonia.

Anyone travelling through Minneapolis and Saint Paul tonight please be careful. Originally what happened in Brooklyn Center is now spreading throughout the cities.

I’ve learned the hard way before. It’s worth it if you aren’t set up with a good shop and tools to have an expert apply decals. You’ll be happy with the craftsmanship.

What happened? I gave up on the news a while ago.

#16035 9 months ago
Quoted from NightTrain:

Police shot a 20 year old. While some are inclined first to create "context" and justify why it happened, others wonder why having an air freshener hanging from your rear view mirror or a fake $20 are death sentences handed down by an entity who has "sworn to serve and protect."

The second part wasn't on the news, but will result in potential violence from one side and potential rioting on the other, and history repeats itself, hence, be aware/careful.

"Police shot a 20 year old" was all that was need to be said to inform people of the problem.

I'll make sure to check with you before I post in the future. I was thinking about selling a game, I'll send you the pics and you can succinctly point out the language, information, and pictures I should provide to potential buyers according to satisfy your specific needs.

Create context? You either have an outstanding warrant and attempted to flee, or you didn’t. “Don’t run”..
The air freshener was in the news, as was the outstanding warrant. So you posting one without the other made your own “context”.

Let's keep the political stuff out of this thread guys. I get that it's a sensitive topic, but there are plenty of other places to discuss. Stay safe all!

Good job affirming my previous point. Have a great day!

Jedi, I feel that and will stop discussing this matter ("political" or not). I believe my first post about the matter did a good job of succinctly discussing why people "should be careful," as people asked the question in the thread. Some disagree. Nothing positive will come from the conversation at this point.

We live in an age where criminals are glorified. Just look at certain genres of music. I'd expect to be shot at if I was running from police, especially with a history of firearm offenses. Common sense is dead.

You're talking about classic rock, right?
Helter Skelter, Hey Joe, etc?

"Common sense is dead," rather: people are more comfortable sharing their own point of view that doesn't agree with your point of view, and you're offended because "The Times They Are A-Chagin'" so you lash out against change and for censorship.

As Dylan said, it is “about the person who doesn’t take you seriously but expects you to take him seriously."

Also, Jedi, for real this time.

We also live in an age where cops are glorified. Just look at certain segments of the population. I’d expect to not be shot at by any asshole. Common sense is dead, I agree.

You do know "Helter Skelter" the song came first, right?

Quoted from John_In_WI:

Yes, my point was that correlation does not imply causation. Thank you.

In the same vein: I listen to songs about having sex but I sure don't seem to get laid.

#16049 9 months ago

Okay for real, get this thread back on track.

My intent was to bring awareness for anyone traveling through the cities who may have a pinball deal lined up and may not pay close attention to what’s going on in the cities especially if you don’t live around here. Since it’s been known events like this can shut down major interstates including I94.

#16050 9 months ago

Noble, perhaps, but it causes more consternation than can be offset by the off chance of someone cruising up to M/SP while reading Pinside.

That's what live updates on Google Maps is for.
