Quoted from Murphdom:

I remember someone picking up a game with the Neptune reels in it a short time back. I wish I remember what game it was and when so you could hunt them down for them and trade. I just remember it looking really odd.

I saw one on the Facebook EM group and asked the person who posted it if they were interested in working out a deal for those reels, but didn’t hear back after they responded saying they didn’t have the game yet.

The one that got away

Quoted from StratDoc:

what size lock cam for the front door of 1972 Fan--Tas-Tic and what size for the rear back box plate?
Thanks. Picked up a really nice one that will look good next to the A-Go-Go as they both have the roulette wheel spinner.

1.5” on both

Finally finished my Miss-O and now I have moved this beauty into the workshop. She is going to get a total makeover.

Fortunately its all cosmetic, its actually working and I can play a game on it. Its a tough game, look at the size of those out-drains!

My in-laws have an elderly neighbor with an Ice-review just rotting away in their barn. I’m determined to get that thing from them before it’s destroyed. It appears to be in good shape from the pictures but they absolutely refuse to let it go. I’m just going to have to relentlessly nag them when I visit until they cave. Hoarders...ugh

The sample game version of "Ice-Revue" (not "review"), has the outlane arrangement like 'Show.
They both lack the two small plastics near the flippers.

If you weren't across the continent, I'd swap cabinets with you if you're planning on doing a repaint. Mine is way worse, and I'd keep that one original. I also have a blank playfield which although not great, is much better than yours. I don't think I've ever seen that game with such a worn playfield as yours.

Not only lacking plastics, those posts make it a huge plus for nudging,
but still a damn tough machine to flip..

Yes, that is correct! Here is my sample Ice Revue. Absolutely love the extra nudging required!

Shopped out all 25 wedgeheads in my basement collection. New rubbers, clean playfield glass channels, clean and adjust switches where needed, new balls, wax playfield, replace any bad bulbs, polished chrome posts, clean playfield glass inside and out, wipe clean all metal and more.

Some games needed more attention than other due to the longevity of the years in my collection. Started in Nov 2020 and finished in Jan 2021. Man.. they are playing spectacular!

I also started shopping my other games in my collection including my Bally Bingos, Williams games and my Solid State games. Card Whiz,Countdown,Joker Poker,Blue Chip,Lite a Line,Gay Time are completed and l plan on getting to the others soon.

Simply stunning, Vic... in breadth, condition and display!

I think I hurt my wrist scrolling back up for the upvote...

Absolutely Amazing!!

#1666 7 days ago

Beautiful collection and amazing work there Vic! Home confinement does have some positive results!

Anyone have stencils for a Bally Happy Tour? Or measurements / layout ? This one is going to need some TLC!

Great collection, beautiful. One question, do you use the Rheingold before or after the Wildcat?

Ha! I know right? They were on the legs when I picked her up. So far they’ve been handy but will need to come off before all is done

A little Friday night surgery on the Jumping Jack.

Quoted from TimMe:

Once in a rare while I think a second artist would help out. On Bank-A-Ball (1965) I could swear that Art Stenholm did the light shields. The PF and backglass are definitely Roy Parker, but those shields don't look anything like Parker's style to my eye, they look like Stenholm's work.

I totally agree, that there are more than a few instances in the 60s EM era
where more than one artist worked on a game,
where some art on the PF or plastics is definitely different from the BG artist.

Did the same surgery using a Dremel cutting tool last week on my Fast Draw. Replaced 3 drop targets in 15 minutes.

I’ll never do it any other way now.

#1674 2 days ago

I used a dremel tool today as well. 4 hours of grinding the excess plating from the inside of the newly replated levers!

Trying to psych myself into getting back into my fast and quick draw restores I started. New Playfields now clearcoated so it’s time to start rebuilding.

This was my second Dremel fix and it went so much faster than the first, mostly cause I didn’t let the spring come off. It takes longer getting the playfield out (why does the playfield have a jones plug in the back box?), setting it up on the bench, and pulling the back panel off than the drop repair itself.

Afterwards I played 3 games and broke another one

Top Score done. Significant cabinet touch up, some playfield touch up, added mylar (after waxing) to center lane area from spinner down, and just below kick outs. Polished and cleaned everything. New coin door and legs curtesy of PBR. Solved multiple electrical issues. And removed the jump wire that creatively hacked it to always start a two player game. Heading to it's new home later this week. Next, Doodle Bug.

Old Chicago - playfield swap complete. A few minor issues but she's playing! I did some experimenting with LEDs under the inserts - special/extra ball/double bonus. If you decide to use LEDs in this game, you'll need the non-ghosting. Reds and green look great (photo doesn't do it justice), while pink under the extra ball inserts looks terrible; will need to try orange. The Comet 1SMDs are nice and not too bright. Metal trim and cabinet work to follow.

Much appreciated Mike. I'm typically conservative when it comes to games, but since it's a CPR playfield, I decided on some experimentation. Might get a little crazy with the cabinet art, not yet sure.

Looks great, Don. Yeah, maybe do that alternate cabinet design. I think it looks way cool.

Not a bad game; curious, I see the Stan Harris operator sticker... does this game have one or more holes in the front for a locking device over the coin door and/or an inserted metal plate on the underside of the game? I believe he operated in and around Philly, and was a big fan of theft prevention.

Epson Perfection V39, I had to modify it a bit but it seems to work well, see thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/scanner-alternative-to-hp
