Picked this up yesterday. Needed something new to tinker with. Seems to be in good shape, just need to order some new rubber and replace some bulbs.
Quoted from AntennaMan:
It is my birthday, so I had to buy something. It was only 5 minutes away, the closest before was 2 hours, so I had to buy it just on this basis. When I called the guy, he answered by saying, "Jeff?". He already knew me & I him. Played golf with him and his dad. Have got all my flooring from them. They're customers of mine. Never knew he was interested in pins. Funny thing, I had looked in at least a week for pins on CL and was only there looking for a cheap pellet stove to heat the new workshop, but eventually entered pinball. Did a triple take. Couldnt believe any machine was right here in town.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Happy birthday. Today is mine as well.
Quoted from Mopar:
Yes, it's nice when those cardboard score reels are nice and firm..
Cleaning then lubing the Step Ups and Score motor wiper boards are important.
I'm sure you already know this but "No" Steel Wool. I use scotch brite with a solvent.
The little copper ratchet type piece in the score reel units are sure to be frozen.
If the backglass is a little flaky, after carefully cleaning the score reel windows,
applying clear vinyl as a seal to me has been a huge plus. It's something like mylar,
but cheaper and I like working with it better. After it's applied, you can then touch up
the backglass, and if a mistake or mismatch of color is made, it's easy to erase with
no chance of damage..
Sorry if much of this is already common knowledge to you, but just want to let you
know from experience of very many machines..
What do you recommend for lubing the step ups?
Quoted from Ceckitti:
Are we going to not talk about that Sweet looking Warlords cocktail i see sitting back there? Very nice! Been wanting one of those forever. Had an upright, but just not the same. Congrats on the new pin.
Get one. We have a blast playing 4player dollar games. Gets intense.
