Quoted from Seven9er:

Posting details as I know the tech is on the tread:
Had a chance to swing over to St Paul Tap. Was really looking forward to playing a few games of Mandalorian. Unfortunately the center ramp had reject issues with the diverter which basically eliminated access to the upper playfield. Multiballs were fun to play.
Guns and roses card reader was dead so couldn’t play that either.
Ended up spending a lot of time on Turtles and liked that more than I thought. Top lane divider was loose and need to be tightened down and the right in lane switch needs to be adjusted had a few stuck balls that I needed to nudge loose but played fine.
Looking forward to a return trip if/when things get adjusted or fixed.

I was there yesterday for 4 hours and everything was working when I left, except stranger things and deadpool left flippers need new bushings. The games there must get beat on alot it seems, they see a lot of plays.

Led zep had a ball in the sling when I was there but everything else was smooth.

They do get a ton of plays. It always amazes me how dirty they are (and I get) when I clean them and I do it on a regular basis. Looks like the Mando ramp problem is a common issue, there is a big discussion about it on Facebook now that others are running into it. I don't want to drop the flipper power down too much on that game because you should to be able to backhand both ramps and with the game getting a ton of plays if it is too low, those backhands wouldn't be possible.

Do you mean bending it back towards the player to direct the energy downward. That’s what we are debating doing.

I have seen this a couple times this year were the initial seller gets mad don't understand it as they must've been happy with the money they got. Maybe do some research or don't sell to first person that offers. I'm just mad i didn't see it listed for 2000

Lanners knows how to hunt people down with pins, then aggressively tries to make the deal happen.

Not sure if they respond to his buying pins ads or what.

He reminds me of the scumbag Steve guy tho.

When I was at his house, he still lives with his mom I realized. So in the end this dude isn't worth getting upset over.

Thinking about selling my 1955 Williams Jolly Joker EM poker hand roll-down machine. Very cool machine where you roll 5 larger balls down the glass where they drop down onto the playfield into saucers to create poker hands which light up on the backglass. Very good condition for it's age other than some flaking on the backglass. Not really sure where to value it since you never see these pop up, so if you are interested feel free to make an offer. I might consider interesting trades, but mostly wanting cash to fund a new toy.

#16381 6 months ago

I'm local but unsure. I did sell my STTNG, and although a great game, not sure 'desirable' is the warranted adjective...My guess would be pizza which warrants said adjective.

It’s not a middle pop, but my Travel Time has the ball shooter between the flippers if that might interest you. I’m in Neenah and need to make room for a Big Hit that is nearly ready to play.

jasonspoint28, thanks for the offer. I'm holding out for a middle pop projects or something from the mid-late 60s. I hope your Travel Time finds a good home. Definitely a unique game.

Hi all,

I’m going to list my EHoH Premium soon, but thought I’d send it out to this group first. It’s HOU. I’m the second owner and have owned it for about a year and a half. It was originally purchased from Cointaker. It has the Stern shooter knob, shaker motor and purple plastic protectors. I have had zero issues with it, like none. I’m asking $9000.

Thanks everyone.

Brian

Check with AudioHaven He had is TMNT pro listed for trade for awhile, but not sure if he's moved it on since then. That was a few months ago. He hasn't been on pinside for a bit though, but never hurts to reach out.

The guy who sold lanners a bunch of pins is still posting complaining about him. So far he got taken for a space shuttle, Tommy, family guy, and maybe a black hole.

I tried reaching out to the guy, but he won't respond back.

That, or, it's someone watching CL and seeing Lanners flip shit and is understandably tired of it.

His name has come up a few other times I think he’s a local “flipper” I don’t know if he collects. I’ve never heard of him outside of these claims.
