This weekend the pinball hobby took me to a new Frontier.

Yes, that would have been a 'final frontier'.

Finally “The Addams Family” is in the house!! I was lucky enough to find this in town and in killer good shape! Lights need a little work but it plays great! I am officially done buying machines now.....no more....that’s it....enough already. Unless...I find a good deal!

Welcome to the club! There’s a good group of pinsiders currently restoring these.

Thanks! I've been reading through a few of the restoration threads. Lots of good info and help going on now with reviving these machines. Going to spend some time tomorrow going over it to see what my plan of attack will be.

In its day, it was the best pin ever. I have wasted many an hour standing in front of one, and I bet the operators appreciated it too!

#11728 84 days ago

I’ve seen people guess what game with less of a clue that I have. There’s a little sneak peek of the backglass in the back seat.

I don't know why, but I get excited when other people post about their new pinball finds. I can't wait to post my own soon...not sure if it will really count though, as I'm not technically bringing it home if it's shipped to me...

Brought the Meteor home last night. It went from the pick location to my friend’s house.

Had to do some re-soldering in the back box; now I can fix the center drop targets and replace rubber + LED it out. Probably not a long-term keeper, but it’s fun for now. Working fine aside from that center drop target bank.

Black Knight 2K came home the same night and I’m slowly working on that one. Mostly just a few broken plastics, old lighting, and aged plastics there. Need to adjust some sluggish targets (they trigger properly, a few just fall slowly) and rebuild flippers, but otherwise working fine.

8ball Deluxe was promised to a friend and probably won’t ever come to my house. It worked okay but had some glitches because some of the wiring is, uh...melted-ish. I’ll let him have fun dealing with that. Sounds like he’s going to fully restore it, so that’s neat.

Wasn’t looking for one cause no one seems to sell here. Wasn’t going to pass this one up. HUO and modded to the hilt.
And yet I’ve already been onto Mezelmods for more lol. This game is insane, I’m loving how brutal it can be but always keeps me coming back for more.

Some of the mods look good, I do think the upper left corner is too crowded. I would remove the barn so you can see Motorhome, and the large figurine that does not fit scale with other figurines. Sometimes less is more-looks good.

Nice haul. Photos of the Eureka and Key Lite are needed for the IPDB. Please consider adding photos. I have notified Jay.

Are any of these for sale?

I believe that the Eureka is the '38 version.

#11746 83 days ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

I think you are right-good catch! If you look at the left of the name on the glass, the 1947 version has 'flags' while the 1938 version is 'boxes'. The head on mine has a different lower shape to it with the curve then either of the images in the ads/flyers as well- but definitely factory.

Last time I checked the posting rules in this thread- that still counts!

Have to agree, that was the area I will look at and see what I can do to improve it.
