Item description

Selling this Stern Nine Ball. Spent majority of its time in the previous owners home and the cabinet & backglass are BEAUTIFUL. I rebuilt the power supply connectors with new headers and connectors since the old ones were toasted. I've replaced the flippers, rebuilt with new bushings, links, sleeves, EOS switches, and coil stops. Cleaned and waxed the playfield. All new rubbers. Replaced the left outkicker coil, shooter rod, and the backbox lock. Cleaned all the plastics and also reflowed EVERY single header pin on every single board and display.

The game plays very nice but does still have some quirks. There is definitely playfield wear and some cupping inserts, which is unfortunate. A little out of my skill level to feel comfortable addressing. There are also some other issues I didn't address due to time constraints and general "fear" of making things worse. The drop targets could stand to be replaced but I have a brand new set I will include with the machine. I absolutely hate drop target assemblies and I do not want to risk causing further issues. Also, some of the light sockets are flaky. I've tried my best to clean them but some of them are still intermittent.

All in all, it's a terrific players game as it stands, but if you want full blown collector quality, it still needs some loving touches. Asking $1250 or best offer. Sorry, no trades.
