Great find today. Needs a little love, but I'll take it after moving the last two I had and regretting it. Next phone call...Shay. By the way, anybody have a spare MPU laying around?

Quoted from animesuperj:

My friend locally who used to own a Dimension said I should be able to use any gottlieb wedgehead, so will keep an eye out for a donor. Also a backglass, which hopefully isn't too hard. There was one in NY recently for $125 in average looking shape. Just said they won't ship.

Maybe you’ll find the original!!!!

Quoted from Arresto:

Well, it was a few weeks ago now but I got this Dr Dude pinball machine that I have been working on fixing up. It is my first machine and I am leaning as I go but so far I have managed to fix:
* A tilt fault that was stopping the game from starting - there was a short circuit due to a bad soldering job.
* The start button didn't work - someone had cut the wires where they connected to the pump tilt.
* The left flipper not working - replaced a capacitor, cleaned and tightened the leaf switch.
* Swapped some wrong and blown fuses.
* Bought and put in bolts and nuts for the head board and play field pivot bolts.
* Cleaned & cleaned & cleaned the machine.
* Touched up some of the artwork - there is a lot more to go.
* Swapped the broken big shot figure for a random figure and have a new 3D printed one on its way in the mail.
I've also tested all the omes for all the solinoids most are around 6 and all are above 4.
I've still got to get the mix master working. I've swaped out a bad diode and NPN transistor on the Triac board but it's still not working.
Let me know what you think. As I said this is my first machine and I'm learning as I go so any advice if welcome.

Welcome to pinball, you’ve clearly already done/learned more than most in the hobby

But then do they show up to play pinball ? if so? ...... they're bums!

#8372 1 year ago
Quoted from wantdataeast:

This has been the same home non-smoking home for 12 years and in that time it saw only 600 plays (600 plays since 2006). And from the look of it, it saw very little play before that. Closest condition to a HUO game as I have ever seen.
Playfield plastics,translight, cabinet...all magnificent. super clean inside. Baywatch is not on my short list so I am gonna let her go, maybe trade off to a top 40 game.. or project / players top 15 game
(and shout out to the "Nuon" industrial battery company. Installed for 12 years and no leaks and still active enough to hold the audit info...WOW!)

DUDE, make sure you toss in the new code that Chad did, it changed game play immensely give it a few plays first..........ya never know, it might grow on you.

Quoted from BorgDog:

Definitely agree, but sadly my system 1's have been much neglected since TNA showed up a couple months ago, but it too proves the simple is better

If I had a TNA in my collection, the older pins + a hell of a lot else would be neglected!!

#8913 11 months ago
Quoted from GreenMario:

Hello everyone! I brought home my first machine the other day. It's one most of you are probably familiar with but it was brand new to me. I never really got into pinball when I was a kid, I was a little young for it in the 90's. A friend of a friend was giving it away!! Lucky me! It has 70,971 plays on it and has spent the last 2 decades or so in someones home.
The paint on the cabinet is a little rough but the playfield and backglass are beautiful, I think. And it plays great! I've noticed the swinging target takes a little time to "warm up" before it swings all the way back and forth, i'm not sure if they're all like that. But once it's been on for a few plays it has a much larger range of motion.
Mine doesn't seem to be wired for a conservative mode, unless that's selected by open circuit. And the liberal and medium appear wired together? Maybe I'm misunderstanding it. But we'll cross that bridge if I start breaking 200,000 points on the regular in 3 ball mode. And the number match function I don't fully understand, is it supposed to light up one set of numbers every game? or just every few games? Maybe I have some light bulbs burnt out, but it only occasionally lights up a score to match so I haven't been able to test if it's working.
I'm really looking forward to getting into this wonderful hobby. It's been great fun to play so far and even just the few hours I spent with it last night I've seen my scores and skills improve. Those drop catches to flip up to the "ramp" are tough!!

Hope you have lots of space for the rest coming in!!!!

Wasn't expecting to wake up and find this the next city over will go nicely next to Caribbean Cruise

I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

how was the best pizza on the planet?

I kind of thought that was a bold statement myself, but hey, probably a good marketing scheme to get everyone in at least once to test it out!!

#9043 11 months ago

Well, transport dropped this off at the driveway for me today! Cracked the wrap off a bit to get a baby sneak peek. Bought it sight unseen from pics and the sellers word. I’ll put it together tonight and check it out fully!!
I’m sitting here at work now.......waiting.........crap!

Maybe a bit too red for me, might have to swap those out. My second System 11, side by each now. Looks like some repairs to do, lower back glass lights not operational, good thing I’m handy, then, about a 5-10 hour tear down and shop job needed.

Just delivered!!!! Just in the garage for now until I get a little help from the boys to set it up, & or find a spot for it downstairs.
Wanted a Monopoly for YEARS!!! Finally in my possession. Thx to murphelman, we started this deal over a month ago, with logistics, the tornado, and life, it’s finally here.

Also, for any Canadians, I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest Manitoulin Transport formpin shipping, they were the least expensive and a good service.

Quoted from jawjaw:

Same here! FT seems to suffer cab fade the worst. Too bad because I really like the art on this one. Great game. I am surprised you can still find these reasonably cheap. Mine needs a bit of work but look forward to fixing it up. Should be a nice player when done.
[quoted image][quoted image]

You can have the whole cab looking like new for a couple hundred bucks if its not beat to crap.

#10322 6 months ago
Quoted from jawjaw:

I usually don't care about the cab but FT has such great art and color. Is it possible to redecal a game without taking everything apart? I imagine you need to if sanding, painting, and all that.

Not really, heat gun it or sand off the old.
Fill dings, paint, re-decal.

Find the Vids cabinet repair thread, it’s great if your interested.

Brought home my first pin today. Bought this LOTR Pro from wonderful pinball collector and restorer in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
This machine has a lot of mods installed by the previous owner. From the Craigslist ad:
Pingraffix pinblades, special pinball life flipper coils, ColorDMD, shaker motor installed, shire decal, PDI target decal set, palantir color changing LED, Mind Orbits color changing shooter rod, Path of the Dead figures added, NVram installed, no batteries needed, some LEDs installed. Playfield in good condition, some wear on cabinet. Never been on location, I am the 3rd owner. Has manual and a few extra parts included. Game plays and works great.
While not an LE, it does have a signed card from George Gomez.
So excited!!!!

It's cool, it wasn't in the description but the pictures clearly showed it. Also in his description it says LED's and a new main ramp. Does anyone know if this game was produced with LED's?

No, they would have had to be swapped in.

Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

Spent the last two weeks on the road working. Get up early this morning check pinside project pins and see 1 in LA and better yet I pass right by the town on my way home. Send a message early this morning and nothing. About 30 min from the town and heard back from the seller. Ask if I can take a look and see if we can agree on a price. We do and it comes home with me. Best part plug it up (when home) and it comes on and seems to start a game but not kicking out the ball. She is dirty and once I drill out the locks I’ll clean her up and get her going. The owner said it didn’t work I didn’t even try it at his place as I was good with the price for the condition. And that’s not red paint its like some boat seat cover material. Check out the high scores.

Quoted from Nihonmasa:

Was browsing the swiss equivalent to craigslist looking for cheap backglasses when I cam across an ad, 20 mns away from my home where someone was giving away a pinball machine.
25 mns later I add this in the car for free!
After 2 hours fidling with the electronic I got it running! Now have to check everything and work on the cabinet. (As you can see the backbox’s top has seen better days )
But hell, free?? Gave the guy a wine bottle from my late father’s collection to thank him He knew he could sell it but wanted to give to someone passionate rather than someone who’d buy it and resell it for more.
