Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

I replaced all the back-box locks in my 11 pins to have the same key. I bought the locks about 6 years ago and just never got around to doing it. Boy the newer Sterns with metal backbox (wooden sides) are a pain in the ass. It was so simple on the original style. But I guess the new ones are certain...

Re: Polishing used pinballs.

I would like to order some female crimp connectors for 0.156 and 0.100. Does anyone know which ones I should order? Th...

For those that are coming, there is lots of parking at the School (D. Roy Kennedy) about a block from my place if you don't want to park on the street.

Re: Indiana Jones (Williams) - Pinsound issues

is it an original pinsound or pinsoundplus board? I have an IJ with an original pinsound board? If you post pictures of the boards I can compare with mine. As Mike suggested I would start with ribbon cables. If u are lucky that is the issue as opposed to the MPU board. Many years ago my STTNG did so...

Well, that was easy! Holy cow, I can't believe how long that took. I guess a lot of people don't like poker.

Congrats Lee. The new owner is getting a nice game!

No dimpling, no playfield art chips and no bad node boards. They don't make em like they used to.
