Is that a drive-in movie ticket booth behind you Doughslinger?? Really looks like one!!
If anyone has a "beater" lower section of cabinet in Baltimore area let me know. I'm making a coffee table from a used pf and would like to cut-down and re-paint an existing cabinet instead of building one from scratch - It might matter, so it should be a Gottlieb EM cab.
Thanks for the input, can't decide if I'm really warming up to GoldenEye...........enjoy the long weekend everybody!!
Hmmm, I think I need to shop out my GoldenEye, I am not warming up to it, but so many people think it's so fun?!
I actually have GE and was thinking Frank might be more enjoyable?.....
Quoted from akm:
Personally, I don't think Frank is more enjoyable, but that's just me. It's easier to get things started in GE and the ramps feel really good. Do you understand how to play the game?
If you decide to part, then sell GE outright. MSF costs less so pocket the extra cash.
Thanks for your input. Good question about how to play - here's what I usually do:
Shoot target for locked ball, shoot ramp to lock ball (that ramp is very difficult for me........I know you can backhand the left flipper but sometimes that causes the ball to come screaming back for a drain if not shot hard enough.
Shoot for Satellite once balls are locked.
Shoot for modes scoop, attempt, but never complete modes, usually ends in drain.
Am I missing something?
Hey guys, I need some TIP transistors replaced on a board, burned out some lamps last night when a loose socket touched another metal part - anyway, anyone available to visit me and do this? I will pay you of course. I haven't tested anything yet, but from reading about the matrix that is probably what has happened as some bulbs remain on in a very bright state.
I'm in Baltimore county.
Quoted from twitami:
I have about 8 machines in Frederick and would love to start/contribute to a league. FSPA, DMV, whatever. I know Joe S. has been working on getting something started in Frederick area for a while.
I have a basement, we can start a league there!!! I'd gladly take your donations!!!
"We were there all afternoon and picked up 5 pins from him."
And to think I have trouble laying out the cash to purchase *one*!
Enjoy the new additions!!
Downer on my last post?? That was a compliment!
Oh well.................enjoy the new pins anyways!
Whoa! Yeah how about Gregg? I went back to his sale list after being unable to pm him and.............WoW..........like a dynamite keg blew-up.
Great idea, a Facebook group! Also, maybe that way we could plan some PinSide "meet n greets" - been thinking about doing something this spring, and asking people to bring a pin or two to plug-in out on my patio!!!
I think we need to move this to its own topic, almost sounds like we need a sort of central location (hotel with meeting room) and people to bring pins. That way people can travel, stay the night, and meet and play.
Throwing out some feelers for a classic Stern: either Meteor, Stars, Flight 2000 or Nine Ball.
Crap! Closed? For good?
Nevermind - just temporary it looks like - maybe one of the dinos escaped??
Hope not, just looked at their website?........
There is a nutty guy that built all of the dinos for that display - he also constructed "Foamhenge" nearby to Natural Bridge. He has a workshop that resembles a huge, dilapidated/abandoned amusement park with various critters and contraptions/houses scattered throughout - I think it *WAS* an amusement park at one time.
It's also a beautiful part of the country.
Nate says check it out!!!
PoMC, well we'll just have to get you over here one day - right now it's being shopped, thinking about sending the habitrails out for plating - you're not that far away.......!! I haven't personally warmed up to the game, but maybe that'll change if I get it playing top-notch.
Quoted from MAJRob:
Man I miss this thread. Moved from VA to Tokyo 5 months ago and cannot find scratch here to buy, sell or trade.
Be thankful there are so many great folks in this area and have a very Merry Christmas!
See you back in a couple of years!
Merry Christmas - do they have new pinball machines at arcades there?? Enjoy the beautiful women!!!
