Quoted from Jediturtle:

Will likely regret posting this, but I'm toying with the idea of trading out my A:IQ Premium. HUO, first owner, ~700 plays. Mostly thinking TWD:LE (possibly the right premium), Deadpool premium (maybe LE depending on $ needed), maybe Godzilla premium. Might consider a few others, but those are the ones that might be interesting enough to move. +/- appropriate cash. Local only (I do not mind a few hour drive to meet), and I am only interested in near perfect quality. Just throwing it out there to see if there would be any interest.

three excellent choices imo.

Quoted from FatPanda:

Thanks! Also toying with the idea of Alice Cooper. Apparently Halloween has made me want more Spooky. I've always liked that game but have only played it a handful of time. And then there are the American Pinball games that I really enjoyed playing at Expo and MGC...LOL. Man pinball is a terrible disease. And of course, I'm not sure I really should part with AIQ either, LOL. My regret pile doesn't need to get any bigger. I hate pinball.

I’m looking for a piece of standard pinball glass near Milwaukee/Waukesha area. I have a beater wedge head with no glass that I want to finish. The game isn’t worth a new sheet of glass. If anyone here has a old one the want to part with for $20, let me know.

Or if anyone from the Milwaukee area is doing a pinball life run to Chicago, and would be willing to pick up my order, I’d Venmo you $20 and buy my glass from them.

Wanted: Williams System-7 Driver Board for Test Purposes Only

I bought a project System-7 pin. It's in transit. It allegedly has an issue with a chip on the driver board. It's not clear if the issue is on the driver board or elsewhere. My hope was to install a good driver board in the game to confirm that the original board needs help. I would then take it out promptly and return it to you. I can pay you a renter's fee, naturally.

Oh, if you have System-7 boards of any sort for sale, I would like to hear about them. I may need them for this project.

Thanks.

I'll be listing a nice Skateball (set up and playing) and a Joker Poker (not set up, and has intermittent boot issues, but plays well when it boots) in the next few days or so. Both have been gone through with Comet 2SMD sunlights. Skateball has a scratch in the backglass where the "e" is but otherwise is in great condition. The playfield has some worn spots and some spots that were touched up and covered with mylar, but presents very well. The cabinet has a few dings but presents well. Has been re-rubbered. Could probably use new drops eventually, but the ones that are there work fine, they're original with one or two replacements.

Joker Poker has new Titan bands, it has intermittent boot issues, but eventually boots with enough patience. Doesn't happen all the time just enough to be annoying. It's not set up, so I haven't been able to troubleshoot it further, but I'm sure it's due to the interconnect. Has a new Rottendog power supply and ground mods done. Has been gone through and cleaned in good playing condition. The backglass is ok and the playfield has a bit of wear. A good player's condition game.

PM me if interested. Looking for a cash sale/s.

#17237 31 days ago

Decided to try my first ever playfield protector for shits and giggles on my NIB maiden premium. I was curious enough to see how it played as well as how it handles a game that tends to get tons of dimples.

Biggest concern I have is the shooter lane where the protector starts just after the routed ball track. This is one of the most finicky games in terms of launching balls both manual and auto.

Just need to throw the flippers back on today and I’m ready to roll. I actually enjoyed the tear down to install it. Fun to dig into a games innards!

Curious what everyone thinks of them. I know opinions are all over the map.

I had one on an iron maiden pro and was super happy with it. Pain in the ass to install when you've just unboxed a game and want to start playing, but it kept the playfield looking perfect and felt it shot similar to route games I had played.

Personally for me, I would never want one and if I bought a game with one it would come right off or I wouldn't even buy the game at all if the price wasn't cheaper to account for the work to remove it. It makes the game play differently. I feel the same way about hard tops. I'd much rather have an original playfield with a little wear. Weird that you mention Iron Maiden is a game that gets tons of dimples. I have a previously routed pro and I would say the dimples on it are actually way less on this game than the majority of Stern titles I have seen through the years.

#17242 30 days ago

I picked up an IMDN Pro with a protector on it. I thought it played okay, certainly different and not as well without one. The worst part was the loop optos would register less than half the time. I'm not sure if the ball was bouncing or the added thickness of the protector raised the ball just enough to intermittently refuse to register. Dimples don't bother me, so I ended up removing it. A few cuts in some strategic areas and pulled it out in less than 5 minutes. The loops registered every shot after. I'm sure you could probably adjust the optos but the game plays better without it anyway.

#17245 30 days ago

Got the protector installed and only put a few plays on it. Having had games exclusively without them for the last many years here is my initial impressions:

Installed on New Iron Maiden Premium after 12 plays:
* Very 'smooth' - no ball noises from rolling over slightly uneven surface/inserts
* Ball travels noticeably slower than the it does on the regular playfield
* No perceptible affect on ball motion
* Not affecting the auto-plunge ( I did put mylar over the whole shooter lane which overlaps onto the protector to give it a slight 'ramp' onto the protector
* Makes the playfield very glossy, like a thick coat of clear - looks awesome but reflects the backbox light like crazy, had to turn down the backbox lighting on gameplay to 30%

My next step is to wax the protector to try to regain some speed like I'm used to. If that works I'll be quite happy. Will report back after a few hundred plays in the future.
