#1657 8 years ago

I put a high score on Josh's Earthshaker. That is a sweet game!!! I really liked it.

#1658 8 years ago
Quoted from precisionk:

So any P2k owners here? Have always wanted to own a machine, played it a few times on location and definitely a good time. Curious as to how repetitive it can get. Any opinions?

swe1 actually is fun. I played one at a bar over and over. Then postmasters RFM at the store a handful. They do get repetitive but they are fun still. I would like one, then the kit to swap over, for sure.

#1663 8 years ago

Hahah. Josh has good scores but somehow I didn't suck so bad. I was all over his road show too

#1682 8 years ago

Quoted from boomer:

If anyone knows of a High Speed for sale up here in the northland, please drop me a note.
Lordloss, glad to see you're making progress on that Lucky Seven.

My GF manages a fleet of GL boats... one of them, forgot the name (SS Arthur M. Anderson I think), was looking for the fitz that night...

It was a insanely nice night out! had heat lightening and 80 degree temps. Harbor water was 75 degrees but the lake side was 55-61. We left the Duluth harbor at like 8 ish, went to Superior, Barker island, ate and had drinks, then wondered back. Saw a docked ore boat with giant ass cranes, almost hit some geese... ahah it was fun.

#2309 8 years ago

Anyone going to pin circus?

#2320 8 years ago

Who is selling a Hydro Thunder arcade? the CL ad has a pin PF in the background

#2323 8 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

I recognize that basement, that's Jackson. He's a younger college kid. Used to have pins and games in his parent's basement, not sure what he has these days. He goes to the U of M now so I don't see him as much anymore.

Jackson!!! Great guy!

#2324 8 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

Just got word that Star Trek should be delivered tomorrow. If all goes as expected, it will be on route for play by tomorrow night.
A heads up for anyone in the area. The Mortimer's Monthly Tournament is this Sunday and the game will be part of the lineup for that event, so make sure to stop on out Sunday night at 6:00 and give it a try. The Star Trek Launch Party is being planned for October 11th, so it doesn't conflict with the Pinball Circus, Blainbrook Events or Expo. More details on that to come.

How busy/packed is it for those types of events?

#2346 8 years ago
Quoted from roffels:

I had a good 25 minute play on Addams Family on Mortimer's last night. And it felt good. Unfortunately I was playing past close and couldn't play my two free credits.

SWEET! You have a crowd watching?

#2551 8 years ago

Ah Todd you missed me wearing my Vette shirt today!!! Geez :-p

I played some pin at circus then had to make it home for dinner in Duluth.

Nice to meet new people! Can't wait to see you at the next event and if you come to Duluth just holler!

#2566 8 years ago
Quoted from tmac:

Was in Duluth in August, I was up there to hit Gordy's Hi Hat in Cloquet for a Burger! The Twin Cities boys told me to look for some Duluth Pinsiders and give me them a holler when I was heading up that way from the Cities in August. I will have to remember that. Corvette was one of the first Pins I played Saturday at Circus. I also seemed to play a lot of games on the Stars pin for some reason.

what?! ya you should of told me! I never went to gordy's this year good food! There are a handful of places/bars to go to, to play, but they usually only have 1 machine. I finally got all 3 of mine in my basement, and the comicbook store has 3 of Bill's.

#2567 8 years ago
Quoted from Pins-Pucks-Pints:

Hey Folks, Headed to Wisconsin Dells this week anyone know of where to play some pinball while there ?

I heard there was a bunch there, even a woz.

#2568 8 years ago
Quoted from tmac:

Yep that be the one. Trying to hit the left and right target down and leave the center up then hit it for points, evil I tell you!

yeah for some reason. I played a few of those EM's....and I was oddly enjoying them...as slow as they are, they are not easy. I kinda want one

#2571 8 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

Last time I was there, the last arcade on the Wis Dells strip had a T3 and the amusement center the next exit over from Wis Dells had a broken down LOTR that has been there for 8 years. That's all I know.

It was nice to finally meet you! Glad I came down to the ST release party

#2601 8 years ago

anyone play the matrix? was it awesome?

#2605 8 years ago
Quoted from policano:

I played it. I hate that it is not available

sounds like no "kit", so once my GF gets bored of JM....it will become trade bait I feel!

#2608 8 years ago

you mean, Zizzle POTC?

#2610 8 years ago
Quoted from ThePostmaster:

I'll start the bidding at $27.50

hahah. pinside needs to add the zizzle's to the collection...

#2617 8 years ago
Quoted from policano:

No, the Zaccaria pinball company from Italy. They make some pretty neat games.

Jackson had one, well idk if it was that brand, but games are for sale at the right price, ya?

#2618 8 years ago

holy crap, jolly park looks bad ass!

#2628 8 years ago

What kind of board/CPU/rom runs it? Crack that b open and make our own rules!

Jim! You are already selling the gnr?! Although I've never played a gnr, acdc is a freaking amazing game.....

#2629 8 years ago
Quoted from policano:

I love the theme, music as well. I am going to try and play one again. Hopefully...

Tell the pinball arcade to make these

#2630 8 years ago

Just saw this app in the iOS store....didn't know they made this!
image.jpg

#2638 8 years ago

Magic Castle looks so cool. I've watched a lot of video's on youtube. Maybe the zaccaria app will release it?!

#2639 8 years ago
Quoted from PunishersLEMC:

I played about 100 games at expo and decided it is a game I really dig - so yes as I can't afford both
Do not get me wrong GnR is awesome as well and no longer made.. And not a Williams so it won't be remade

After seeing an ac/dc on here go for $3600, I've pondered the deal as well.... But something always comes up.

#2691 8 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

My brother is dating one of the Vikings cheerleaders. She was in a spiderman costume. She's in the Vikings calendar too, I can't remember which month she is.

#2953 8 years ago

How's the treasure cove kit bill? I was thinking of getting a kit to clean up my machines.

#2955 8 years ago

Ah so just like novus 3. Yeah I've seen a few pf's with it done and they look like glass.

#2957 8 years ago

oh...so it is way grittier? Well as long as I only do 1 and 2 or am ultra careful with 3... TC kit would be nice to be able to clean up the PF's, specially if you go to sell it. Even a clean beat up game is easier to sell than a dirty beat up game

#2988 8 years ago

Ally Black Friday!
Just had the gf play some pin at blainbrook. She was not as big of a fan of st as I thought but acdc grew on her after playing a few games and singing along

#3000 8 years ago

ah tony! I wasn't near there. Well my Escape aka pin hauler/winter beater. had a hit and run done on me Wednesday while I waited at a stop light. Inspector should be here this week to see what the cost is. Looks totaled to me. I'll try to buy my dads escape so I can continue the pin hauling. sad weekend

I fixed checkpoint with new roms, so the sound and dmd work 99%. Had one dmd glitch, but hasn't happened since. GF is very happy about that. LWJP still isn't working with transistor replacement, q20 on the board. I have power at the coil in test, but it never fires. Could it be a bad coil or the transistor that connects the two coil legs? Was thinking of just ordering those two parts.

Another question. I wanted to get a PF clear coated...any good place in MN to do so?

#3004 8 years ago

Welcome Tenuto!! Great place here and lots of good people

Well I think I have over 2 feet of snow....working on the 3rd right now...this is nuts...but if fedex/ups still run, I'll have my new lwjp coil and can try that fix! Need to pour me a drink and start playing pin now that I'm locked in my house.....

#3039 7 years ago

I could bring POTC zizzle!!!

#3053 7 years ago

ha, fixed my lwjp. Drop target down coil/diode were bad. Now the damn drop target won't stay up More parts ordered and tweaking to do.

#3108 7 years ago

Anyone find EM games to buy, anywhere (cl, friends, stores etc) for the $200 range? Or am I crazy thinking the antique shop here that has a worn supersonic for $595 is crazy? I want a EM, but I'd pay 200.

#3113 7 years ago
Quoted from Deaconblooze:

Supersonic EM? I thought those were all solid state?
Also, thanks for changing the subject.

HA you are right it is a SS, but plays like a EM.

#3114 7 years ago
Quoted from ralphwiggum:

I will sell you two complete projects (both of the same title- Skill Pool) for $400 for the pair. Maybe when MN-Flipper is dropping off machines next week, you can sweet talk him into bringing these back with him

Williams or Gottlieb?

#3144 7 years ago

Gah! There is football on? I'm waiting on my couch for my baseman still. Fixing checkpoint then more stuff broke on it. Another order to digikey :/. I'll have to see if I can get the game in. The city was working on my street, water kept getting shut off, must be fixing a main.

So still no local suggestions for pf clearing? I'll have a few pf's to get done and my gf knows a few auto body guys but I'm not sure if something special has to be done for pf's as it is wood and different paint.

#3175 7 years ago

Captneo you try the zaccarias app ? They have a few old machines to play, adding them slowly. I have it on ios....

Quoted from ChrisS:

Actually Parnell was CD'n all night long.
Tim I tried to convert some more people over to the WOF. I think I failed
Chris

That was bad... I cried burning tears there is just something about blainbrook that makes you fart.

#3324 7 years ago
Quoted from ChrisS:

It's the cheese curds
Chris

I knew it was cold today when I made a delivery and left the engine running pointed into the wind, when I came back 5 minutes later I got in and looked at the temp gauge and it was on COLD and the heater was blowing cold air.

damn that is cold. Was it a big delivery truck?

Well I got my LWJP cliffy in and JM shipping crate mod looking snazzy!

#3395 7 years ago

I was at a Xmas tree burning party.....it was cold as f out. My cheeks hurt for a bit need more layers.

#3400 7 years ago

You should try the pinside map and see if anyone has listed games near you

http://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play

I don't find too many near me, so I wander into random bars and bowling alleys just to check. Also posting here! Then you can meet new people/friends and hang out with them and play Still waiting to hear back from thepostmaster need more pin playing in duluth.

If anyone has leads on any DMD Gottliebs, I'm interested...Super Mario bros and waterworld, but open to more.

#3403 7 years ago
Quoted from Deaconblooze:

I've done the same thing, I've also spent some time calling!
"Do you have any pinball machines?" - crazy guy
"Any what??" - irritated bartender
"Pinball machines." - crazy guy
"No." - Irritated bartender

I did that when I first was super excited to go find some...and the irritated bartenders kind of put me off and the ops that don't want to sell their broken, never cleaned/fixed games up here...becomes depressing when I feel like my broken pins work better at home

#3440 7 years ago
Quoted from Silvercoin:

So I got a new Williams in the house on Tuesday.....
Baby Williams!
Dylan Michael Williams, 7lbs 12 ounces..
Destined to be my video/pinball buddy!

Congrats!! make sure to groom them into pinball

#3449 7 years ago

#3477 7 years ago

Got my room for mgc....I'm a mgc virgin! :s

#3489 7 years ago

I have never had enough time at msp to actually play them I did however play a goldeneye at the reef bar in duluth that was a pile of crap. You know when they use scotch tape on the left flipper button something isn't right.

#3497 7 years ago
Quoted from LTG:

Can't be much of an op there if they didn't use duct tape.
Maybe the bar did it, until the duct tape could be brought in ? Can't expect a bar to fix things right.
LTG : )

The op up here doesn't keep any machine they have on route nice. 99% are broken in some way

#3531 7 years ago

What would you sell jd for from the bundle then?

#3534 7 years ago
Quoted from ChrisS:

for you? 3K sounds about right

Hahah what!.? Ya make the broken pin cost more how's that scared stiff? Making you stiff?

#3537 7 years ago

I haven't heard from tony for just over a week

#3548 7 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

I talked with him yesterday about a broken flipper on Independence Day. He had surgery recently so he has been out. He is fine and just recovering, so he hasn't been out much.

does ID4 still have the broken flipper?!

Oh man, glad to hear he is doing well!

#3552 7 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

No, it is a new broken flipper. Last time I was there, they were fixing a different flipper.

Is ID4 known for breaking alien flippers?

#3560 7 years ago

Hmmmmmmm I was talking to my tax lady today actually. New house, so I should get a nice return. Oh wait, 300 hidden bills came in the mail

Quoted from big_ragu:

Played Mustang this morning at Mortimers. I really like the theme (I'm a Ford guy and a gearhead) and the play was fun. I did NOT like the licensed songs, though. Can't listen to Drag City that long! The generic music during the other modes was fine.
Also stopped at Sun Ray Lanes. Kudos to the operators there, nice to see how attentive you are. I should have introduced myself better- I believe you're a fellow pinsider?

ya I'm NOT a fan of the songs...that would be my first mod. Swap the songs out.

Pinball Warehouse has one yesterday for $1995 and it looked nice from what I saw.

thanks! I shall investigate.

#4545 7 years ago

My GF really liked the Elvis game. I was surprised by the shots/things to do in it as well. I suppose I'll need to get at least one game she enjoys..... She liked it because Elvis dances........ Oh and she liked Met, so maybe that is the game to get

#4617 7 years ago

#4620 7 years ago

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Must be a riding mower. Almost all of them cost more then I payed for my Mustang....CAR when it was new.

30" wide cut walk behind

Quoted from pinheadpuckguy:

PDeez I work at a small engine shop......too bad you don't live down here could of fixed it up nice for ya

Eric can you get me a quote on fixing it, just a bent crank shaft? I can remove the engine and bring it down. I've torn these apart but I don't for see myself having time to do so if I can't even find time to fix my pin machines

#4627 7 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Oh it's only a walk behind, I thought you were talkin about a riding.

ya one of the more expensive walk behinds because it has 2 blades to get the wide cut, but doesn't take up room like a rider. My lawn took/takes 2.5 hours about with a 22" wide and 1 gas refill.

#4641 7 years ago

Has anyone made their own translite?

hahahha. Have you played WW? Once you get past the goofy translite/theme, it is a great game. I miss mine a lot. It was in really good shape..kicking myself for selling it :/

Quoted from trilogybeer:

My Brother in-law has got one that he may want to sell .

AH! let me know.

This is a freaking long shot. My lwjp is STILL being a pita. I changed coil diode and transistor at the same time per Aaron and it still isn't working. I'm thinking of buying a white star I/O driver board to test and see if it is something on the board. I could buy or borrow... It would be for games from like 1996-2005 prior to Stern SAM board.

I just saw Benson at my auto race airport event.....but he didn't bring his car :/

#4921 7 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

What event was that? I used to auto cross at the Air National Guard apron at the MPLS/STP airport and other places years ago. Was your event the same as that?

Amery airport run, put on by the Austin Healy club.

Why on earth would you get rid of your TAF already...and for a ribon?

Quoted from PunishersLEMC:

I like RBION - and you wouldn't get it you are from Duluth

I don't get how you can flip through a new game in only a couple weeks

Quoted from lordloss:

Sioux Center Iowa, with the Interstates construction. The job has 35% travel, so i'm hoping to find some good deals on pinball during my travels.

Congrats! Hope you like it! I wasn't a huge fan of Iowa but I was always working in small towns :/

I hit up a arcade vendor and pin club down there to buy a waterworld, replied but never shot me an offer of what the WW was going to cost :/ You'll be closer to Bene pizza though!

Bryan - just ask Jonogo, I bet he has one in his bedroom or on the way to his house now

#5096 7 years ago
Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

If it's been in his bedroom, I ain't touchen it!!

You think he did the bachelor coin door upgrade?

#5137 7 years ago

I've been looking for an EM type game, just depends on price I suppose.

#5146 7 years ago

They never list the prices online :-p Text me any good deals Tony

#5150 7 years ago

I should stay away from new machines for a bit but if he has a deal...............................

Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

Sounds like another Big Al barbecue might be in order. I live to hear Al's sexy voice.

So Al's sex line voice isn't as bad as Josh's "bachelor coin door mod"!?

Anyone have a certain place/person to get a PF touched up and clear coated?

#5216 7 years ago

I'll be at pin on a stick Thursday!!

#5243 7 years ago

I didn't know they were set to $1 a play :/ I didn't bring any quarters or cash :/ AMH was shut down today when I was there

I ran into Billy! and he hooked me and the gf up on a game of WOZ! My gf and parents really liked the game Thanks!

#5263 7 years ago

I'm not bitching about price. I'm only stating that I was unaware it cost or the cost to play. If the cost was stated before I had left, then I would of made it a point to bring it. The gf brought cash, I didn't. I didn't feel like using her money for my addiction.

#5265 7 years ago
Quoted from lordloss:

I still don't know how one does not bring $150 cash to the fair. Unless you only go there to walk around and look at things and not eat/drink/do stuff.

The gf had cash for the food. I was in a rush to get to the cities, didn't fully think about it and wasn't worried as I don't each that much crap food. All I had was a papa pup and split a few shakes....

#5277 7 years ago

nothing like a sugar momma

#5282 7 years ago

Man, you should hear the people at my old work bitch about paying 25 cents a game on newer dmd games....even after they play and see them for $1 every where else....

Quoted from Methos:

I thought Hilton hated Dr. Who...
We had a rough medical situation here...and praise the Lord on high - it looks like it's going to bounce the right way, but not out of the woods and the possibility will always be there to turn the wrong side. Serious shite too, not giving you any melodrama. My stomach was twisted in on itself with some of the office visits we were in. Some of you know what that is like. Caused me to obviously re-evaluate my life real quickly. We all are going to get to that point at some time our lives...mine was just now.
I have 50 games. I'll probably take that down to 8 or so, so I can host in our local pin events. I'm going to go through my records to see what I have invested in each one. I need some time as many things going on and will put prices up on the WI pinball site first. Then here and if no interest, will take it to CL and as a last resort Ebay.
Please don't email me - half of my stuff is on it's end and I need some time to spend with my family and regain my sanity.

oh man :/ Hope everything goes on the high positive side. Let us know if you ever need anything.

#5375 7 years ago

twd pics!!!! and find a used met pro for me to buy in about 2 months?

MRP that Madison pinball thing?....so far away :/

#5381 7 years ago

............where is this held?

#5383 7 years ago

Dang, Madison is a drive :/ Sounds freaking sweet though. 24 games!!! Almost like the pinvitational golf thing in iowa with gorilla a few years ago.

#5410 7 years ago

GAH all the fun stuff is in the cities. I am looking into a league up here, but there is no on location pin that has more than 1 working. One bar has 2, and usually only 1 works. None of the routed games are taken care of. Don't take those great places to play pin for granted!

#5411 7 years ago

Anyone know of a B&B in WI/MN that has a pinball machine in it? Need a "romantic" trip with the lady, but I'd think pinball would be a good getaway

I'm selling my JM. Anyone interested? I just received new x/y nuts to replace as they were squeaking. I will get pics up. Has some fad on the front and a few inches in, but looks good. Good looking PF, except the scratch at the rear left diverter. I raised both diverters up so they are not scraping anymore. Start at $2200.

EDIT: it has some led lighting, spot lights, temezel crate mod.

#5461 7 years ago
Quoted from Lame33:

Shot in the dark, but anyone have any leads on a "project pin"? (maybe a mangled system 11 that did not get the best treatment on route and with some TLC could be brought back from the dead)
I've now repaired and modded my two pins to the best of my current ability and I'm looking to enhance my repair and maintenance skills. Watching Clay's Pinball Ninja videos and youtube will only take you so far without going hands on and a project forces one to research and try new things. The type of new things I would rather not try on my two working pins.

I have a working HS sys 11 I could sell. Needs some pf touch ups, one switch needs to be tweaked (I was going to fix it), otherwise seems to play fine.

HS for sale
Asking $850. Everything works and looks good, except the PF has some wear. Topper is on and works. A plastic may be broke and some clear one is glued near the ramp to stop air balls?

Update on HS for sale. Unit is not at my house, it is at my business partners, so I don't remember or know all about it. I did however buy/pick it up. One of the player displays was out. P4 and we never play 4 player games. He called me today and we were talking about the sale and he mentioned it to me.

I'm looking for a used one to put in it and get it working asap, if anyone has one for sale. Otherwise I'll take a look this weekend at it. Once I am there, I'll get more pictures and video of it playing for those that already contacted me.

#5477 7 years ago

I fixed the squeal tonight. Had to lube the gear box. Mirror blades are out now, stock trans will go back in. Asking $2k. Game works great!

Quoted from dkazz1:

I might have a T2 for sale, kind of on the fence if I want to sell it or not. It's a good players unit. Nice cab, pf is very good. Boards have definitely had work done on them but game plays well with no errors. If your looking for good players unit, this is it. Not a collectors unit for sure though. $1800 ish would be what I'm looking for on it.
Also have a undocumented HUO Space Jam that I will be selling. I bought this from a Warner Bros distributor/licensee of their merchandise about 2 years ago. Condition is fantastic, I still have the (1 ball missing issue) on it. $1700
Would be interested in a trade as well if that works too.
Time to "freshen up" the lineup
My interests? Most DMD games, or system 11 Williams games

Any interested in a sys 11 High speed? Trade HS + cash for one of those? Next week we'd be willing to go for a trade on HS if no cash deal comes.

#5506 7 years ago
Quoted from lordloss:

Anyone planning on bringing anything cool to the Pinball Circus?

if my lwjp is up and running I may bring that, and have it fs.
