Item description

I would consider this a much better than average Black Hole. Previous owner had it for 20+ yrs. Playfield is in much better than average. It looks like either full mylar or some protector installed on upper and lower playfields.
Since I've had the game, I've rebuilt all 6 pop bumper boards, installed a new power supply, converted the lower PF illumination to standard voltage (don't need those #313 bulbs!), and managed to track down the full spinning disc motor/mount (both were missing when I got it).

Playfield really looks great. The exit from the lower PF looks fantastic. I have it dialed in so that it shoots up every single time. All of the drop targets work perfectly. The metal under the PF and the inside of the cabinet look like you could eat off of them.

Game looks great, plays great. The score display for the lower PF takes a minute to come on.

I bought a brand new full plastic set and lower PF window, not installed.
Also included is a spare CPU, the original power supply, and a few odds and ends.

I did NOT do the ground mods on this machine. It was on the to-do list, but never got done.

Usual disclaimer, this is almost a 40 year old game, and a System 80. There are some scratches on the cabinet, and I haven't gone through the entire game.

Pictures and video speak for themselves. Able to work with shipping, or Fast Eddie. Or local pickup or course.

Really prefer cash, but would also consider a BK2K.
