Quoted from nikpinball:
Parts machines are always welcome, we're always going through coils, mounts, poaching from boards, it's pretty tough to keep everything up and going 100%
Just curious, what are you doing to those machines? Once mine are going and I've worked out the bugs I rarely have to do anything to them at all.
Quoted from chuckwurt:
Sweet. One of the coolest places to visit in OH. I will most likely be up there again this year for the Summerdance music festival assuming that goes on again. I have been to that a few times.
They turned what used to be a nice family park of amazing nature into a woodstock-esque drugfest. But that's just my opinion. Try visiting it when nobody is there and go on a nature hike, for some true appreciation of the scenery.
Quoted from fattdirk:
It'd doubly hilarious when those that price police ask the highest prices of their own games.
Guess the name of the game to some is buy low sell high.
The name of the game is buy low and sell high if you treat the hobby as a business. Not me, man - I am just a hobbyist that likes to fix up old some classic games. I put a lot into my games and I am lucky if I can even get near the original purchase price back.
I know how hard it can be for the entry level hobbyist to get some of these better titles, because I've been on the bottom of the pile trying to get my hands of a few for a long time. It was a lot of work for me to get a hold of a couple of 80's system 11s that were at the top of my budget. I'll confront the price pumpers anytime. The lower prices can be made, the more all will be able to afford some great games.

just wait til the ohio show people had alot of nice glass there last year, widebody too
Y'all just missed out...

looking for a rescue 911
Did you miss the one that tlsbryan was selling in the marketplace?
I think he sold it to a local flipper, who got a whopping $385 for it on Ebay. It was missing display and helicopter. The probability of the copter being unobtanium pretty much squelched my interest. I think that is a key component of that game, so I passed.
Another...tlsbryan has decent Demo Man for $1500 if you are willing to take on DMD repair/replacement.
How about this - we Ohioans will let you folks from Michigan post in this thread only if they are GREAT DEALS.
Quoted from slgerber:
I have no problem with Michigan posts, I read that thread as well.
See, now wasn't that simple? That's the perfect example - you're interested in Michigan posts, then you read that thread. That's all you need to do. That's good for you, but others don't care about Mi posts. Why can't it simply be to post according to the thread title, and read the states you are interested in?....or splash it into the marketplace for full coverage?
Why is something so simple so hard for people to get? (and yes, I am relaxed - I just like to call out dumb crap)
Please refer to the "What's for Sale in Ohio and up to 500 Miles Away Right Now?" thread.
Trade feeler: Space Invaders for ?
Just seeing what's out here.
Space Invaders is fully working, playfield is nice with full mylar, backglass mint, cab is ok - just some wear and marks but presentable. Electronics gone over, repinned where needed, has memory cap. Push button for credits, nice bright displays, new rubber, new dead bumper caps, new top playfield glass.
Looking for solid state games only, prefer but not limited to games on my wish list. I like projects and can add cash.
If anyone is looking for a Captain Fantastic, there is one for sale in Ohio on Craigslist. Geographically located in Bay Villiage. It's in really nice shape, and if I had the room I'd have been tempted. Nice older couple, I'm sure they would negotiate with you if you tell them "Dave who bought your Comet sent me". Just thought I'd throw it out here.
Quoted from seshpilot:
Is that the one on Columbus CL? Dude is asking $3500
No, this one is on Cleveland CL. Really nice playfield and backglass. Cabinet has some fade and age marks, that's about it. Playable. I think it's worth $1200. They've got it listed at $1500. If I had the cash and space at the time I would have grabbed it.
Quoted from athenspin:
Any suggestions on a clean original Pinbot mpu that I believe has issues with the 1J8 connector? Thanks
It sounds like the resistor packs associated with the switch data lines need to be replaced.
Quoted from wayout440:
SR9/SR10* = 1k ohms x 4 resistors isolated/discrete (8 pins). Used for the switch returns (rows). Mouser part# 652-4608X-102-1K. Easy to test in-circuit.
SR11* = 560 ohm x 9 resistors bussed (10 pins). Used for the switch returns (rows). Mouser part# 652-4310R-101-560. Easy to test in-circuit.
SR3/SR15/SR17* = 4.7k ohms x 9 resistors bussed (10 pins). Used for the switch drives (columns). Mouser part# 652-4310R-101-472.
SRC6* (1k/470 pfd) = resistor/capacitor network for switch matrix columns. Has 1k ohm resistors with 470 pF caps in a single package. Can not be tested in-circuit. Replace with a 1k ohm x 9 resistor bussed (10 pins) with no capacitors. Cut off pin 10 (important!), and install pin 1 (common) in pin 1 of the board. The cut pin 10 of the resistor network does not go into the board's pin 10 position. See notes below for more info on this. Mouser part# 652-4610X-1LF-1K.
Looking to possibly trade my Taxi for a game on my wish list. Not for sale, trade only.
I would also consider adding my Comet as a 2-for-1 for the right game.
Still looking for a trade. Taxi+Comet for ?
Some other titles besides wishlist games I am also interested in:
Jurassic Park, Dirty Harry, Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly, RollerCoaster Tycoon
All conditions considered, projects ok as long as they have the boards.
Quoted from fattdirk:
Looking to trade around.
Machine - For Sale
For Trade: BaywatchRouted - fresh off route “Great players baywatch. Cabinet has seen better days. The back of the cab is all chipped up.
The playfield is really nice. Game had a full tear down a few months back with all Com...”

Put the crack pipe down and slowly back away...
Please post the comical stuff to my thread below, just to lessen clutter in this thread. Thanks!
Quoted from rollinover:
Would have loved to own this one and would have paid more if anyone is thinking of selling pm me or if the buyer considers selling please reach out. Bummed I missed it
Easy, there. Don't overpay for this mediocre game. I can understand high desire if you are a huge fan of the movies, but the movies are way better than the pin. Just my opinion - hold out for a fair deal, people will attempt to gouge you on this title.
Quoted from rollinover:
yeah its pretty much just the theme for me, huge fan of the films, and its hard to find them anymore. most are pretty rough shape and sell quick
Sounds like a Bally Kiss. The biggest example of theme overriding the gameplay of a pin. We all have our vices. I'm a big fan James Bond so I admit I would probably overpay for a GoldenEye.
Original RFM Pinball 2000 computer and monitor listed in the marketplace.
Judging by the last few pages, seems this thread has turned into more of a "What's wanted in Ohio right now?" thread.
Quoted from WeirPinball:
I've got a Fender USA Select Strat HSS and an Ibanez S5570Q-DGD S Prestige HSH Electric Guitar Dark Green Doom Burst I need to get rid of...
Thanks for posting, but I'm not really interested in those models. If anything I might sell the pin and shop for the guitar later.
Quoted from RoxasUrSoxas:
Thinking of selling or trading my Diner. Fairly nice condition and plays well. Full LED.
Only issue is sometimes when turning the game on, it goes back to factory settings. Has remote battery holder, which I think is the issue (After moving the holder so it wasn't just hanging, it happens way less often). Haven't pulled board to check it out (I'm not confident in doing my own board work yet).
Machine is located in my business, Southland Lanes in Middleburg Heights OH (Along with 20 other games). So if you're close by, stop in and check it out. I can send pictures on request, too. Machine would have to be moved up stairs.
Taxi, Monopoly, Fish Tales and Super Mario Bros are at top of my wish list.
I was there last night and played this Diner. Very fast game! All the games are very well taken care of. The only thing I had a problem with is a couple of games are too bright for serious play. That Batman really hurt my eyes with all those LED flashers. Good Luck with the sale.
