Finally!!! Gave up my Judge Dredd for a HUO Indy 500 today. Dirty, so it needs some attention.

Quoted from simplykind:

Black Knight 2k. Minty. Definitely HUO.


simplykind, I see you have an adjustment failure. Did someone pull the batteries? Sure hope there isn't any alkaline damage to the MPU. Congrats on your purchase.

Quoted from Tickerguy:

Picked up an Apollo 13 the other day; it has a few problems and was once on a route (maybe 10+ years ago) but has been sitting in a dude's house for a good long time with no attention of note. Amazingly it had ZERO leakage from the (still mounted!) battery holder despite my suspicion that the guy who owned it never used the key in the coin door! It's getting a NVRAM since it's a socketed chip on these and it's a 30-second job.
Playfield is in good shape and a half-day with it got it mildly cleaned, 3/4 relamped with LEDs and the mechanical issues fixed so it's fully playable. The moon and rocket both work after a bit of attention although someone at Stern needs to be attached to a tree; 4 flashers (2 in the rocket and 2 in the backbox on that channel) is 2 too many on the stock power board transistor and one channel is blown. Waiting on some TIP102s (I was out) to take care of that and bayonet-base LEDs to fix the dissipation issue "for good." This is a game that punishes you *very badly* for missed shots (usually with a SDTM) but it's growing on me rapidly (the kid loves it, including the frustration level it generates.)
It'll get the full strip-down, clean and rebuild flipper treatment soon once I have all the rubber parts I need -- I'm missing too many of them to want to tear it apart twice for a full cleaning, go-through and re-rubber treatment.
I'm a Bally/Williams sort of guy but this isn't a bad table at all...it has exceeded my expectations thus far.
I'm now officially out of room for additional pins unless I invade a second room.... which is kinda likely to happen

Time for you to get a ColorDMD for that A13.

#2507 3 years ago
Quoted from SunMonkeyAZ:

Picked up this guy the other day. The problem is that everyone here was right. I only have room for one pin but somehow I now have two. Pinbot will stay in the garage at least until I clean him up and get it ready before the heat comes but after that I'm gonna need a bigger house.

Things in the house can always be rearranged to fit a second game if you try hard enough. I have them in my 3 bedrooms as well, including the smaller 11x10 bedroom and it also has a bed in there too.

#2514 3 years ago

Traded my Freddy for a Taxi project on Tuesday that included everything I need..CPR playfield and backglass, new blue Spin out ramp, both new ramps, plastic set, and topper.taxi_2_(resized).png20160529_105554_(resized).jpg

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Picked up a Gameplan Sharpshooter II from a fellow pinsider this weekend.
No charge for the nest under the pop bumper

A headless Sharpshooter?

#2561 3 years ago
Quoted from Jodester:

It is possessed by demons. I removed all the boards and cleaned up the connectors. Put it all back together and nothing. The blanking led stayed lit and no boot. ( 2 flashed from 20) Today I turned it on for shits and giggles and played 10 games on it with no issue. Maybe somebody could point me in the right direction as to how this could happen and how to cure it. Or I could bring in a priest...

Next time, try just unplugging the ribbon cables from the MPU to see if the MPU boots up correctly.

#2567 3 years ago
Quoted from Aladdin:

Brought home a Bally Captain Fantastic Home version. It's practically new, just has some tape on the glass. Doesn't start a game, but the feature lights and flippers work.

Check for burnt male/female connectors on the power supply.

For years my wife has thought POTC would be fun. Grabbed this one today. My second Stern to balance the W/Bs.
2 drivers. 474 miles each way. Left 10PM last night and got back 3PM today on a holiday weekend. Tired but happy.

Is the wife happy? I hope she is. I enjoy mine still after 5 years.

My second grail followed me home tonight.
Needs a few minor things to spruce it up, but a nice solid example of this gem. Slingshot plastics, laser cannons, Colordmd...
Special thanks to pinballmaniac40 for sending me the CL link last night!

I'm glad you were able to grab it. I have no plans to give up mine!

Today's find - Earthshaker! Board corrosion, playfield inserts lifting. Lots of work ahead.

Congrats on your purchase. I would fix or replace that MPU and then just play the hell out of it. Get on the CPR list to get a new playfield, and swap it once you get one. http://classicplayfields.com/order.html

Finally got this set up today after it being dropped off by a local Pinsider creyes82. Some insert wear, cabinet looks pretty nice and plays well. May only be temporary as another local collector I know has been wanting one for over 4 years now. I'll enjoy it while I can. 20170112_172631 (resized).jpg20170112_172640 (resized).jpg20170112_172705 (resized).jpg20170112_172656 (resized).jpg

Anybody know what this is? I saw one on another forum and while checking CL last week for something else I found one for sale. It was a eight hour total drive but it's pretty awesome.

Congrats. You have a wrapped box.

#4195 2 years ago

Bam!! 2 projects were dropped off from friends for me to repair and I get to upgrade the Time Machine with LEDs. Sharkey's Shootout will then be for sale.

Quoted from Pecos:

I wasn't going to post this until I saw the operator's stamp on the bottom of the cabinet. Do you guys/gals want me to keep posting my pin pick-ups or are these same old, same old?

H.A. Franz is basically a distributor, who is still in business to this day in Houston. Cool find.

#4240 2 years ago
Quoted from Gerrard17:

My first NIB experience, can't see me ever being able to afford it again though! Annnnnd it didn't take long for the mods to begin.
- Cliffy's all around
- Crosses
- Playfield protectors
- Captive ball Coffin/Skull
- Flipper toppers
- Mummy guitar
- Lots more left to install!!

Nice. ColorDMD is the next mod to get.

My June raffle prize from Pinball EDU Charity arrived today via Cointaker. No issues I can tell out of the box. 20171009_195012 (resized).jpg20171009_211506 (resized).jpg20171009_211452 (resized).jpg

Quoted from dirkdiggler:

Congrats! How many tickets did you buy? I keep forgetting about the edu charity Crazy you can get a new pinball machine for as little as $40!

Thank you. That particular June raffle, I bought 2 tickets. $80 this round! Upgrading to the premium was $1900, which I was happy to hand out extra for it.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Nabbed a Stern POTC at an auction in the middle of nowhere. It's in really nice shape--it probably was never routed, so this is probably my first HUO pin.
The hammer price was very far below the going market price for these, and I was dumbfounded that I won it, so I pretty much drove home like I stole it, lol

You were born to be a pirate!!

Quoted from Glycerin:

Brought this home two weeks ago. Not sure if I will keep the GI lighting the way it is. Still a great game.

Nice pickup. I hope you don't keep the GI that way since it distorts the playfield artwork. Whites all the way for me in the GI.

#7818 1 year ago

Backbox is GI as well. All included in the hopes of dropping the colors.

#7819 1 year ago
Quoted from fish1975tx:

Picked up Doctor Who this weekend from my good friend PinballManiac40! Been waiting a long time to get this game and wife and I have been playing it a lot.

Super glad you and the wife are enjoying it. And I still get to play it when I stop by. Woohoo!! So it is not out of my reach being just 20 minutes away from me.

#7902 1 year ago

With all the projects in my garage, this one fits nicely since it was missing 2 boards. Luckily over the past 5 years, I've been collecting spare boards from Ebay, some work, some don't. Time to get it working and collect some junk!!

Thanks to fish1975tx for helping me pick it up, due to my lack of owning a truck. I hope you are really enjoying that Dr. Who from me. Woohoo!!!

Edit: installed a couple of boards out of another game to test out the game.

I brought home a HUO IronMan today to complete my super hero row.

Complete super hero row, you say. I must ask where is Batman Forever, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Batman 66?

Nice current collection that is.

#8152 1 year ago
Quoted from mmuglia:

Complete "my" super hero row...as in the super hero games I want to own. Wasn't claiming to own all the super hero pins.

Just messing with you, bro. What happens if Deadpool gets released? I hope there is a Superman pin in our future.

Rescued this guy today. It's been sitting in storage for at least 12 years. A few cosmetic issues but seems to work 100% and should clean up very nice!

Did it have only 600 plays before being stored for 12 years with the batteries installed that did not leak?

Quoted from jaytrem:

Wow, you sure got lucky with the batteries. I picked up a similar RCT last year, but the damage was done. Didn't cost too much for the board repair though, so ended up being a nice deal.

One word...NVRAM
Congrats on your purchase. ColorDMD will look sweet in that game.

#9091 1 year ago

This marks number one in the collection. What do you all think?

4 hours away at 2nd cousin's wedding yesterday, my oldest brother tells me of an older SS pin at an Antique store that he found early that morning. We left the reception a bit early to check it out. It was labeled with '$250 firm' but walked out with it for $50 plus $4.20 in local sales tax.

MPU board has battery corrosion, especially around the ground plane and currently it does not boot. I'm going to start with sanding the corrosion, replace damaged parts, and fixing damaged traces to see if I can revive this board. The front cabinet has some 'water' damage, but I have no doubt I can find another good used donor cabinet. The backglass has very few minor scratches and the playfield is decent for its age.
