Hi Rob, Could I see the Earthshaker and/or Hurricane. My kids have been bugging me to start building a pin (God help me), and this would be good for a parts start.

Here is how it works if you order non stocked items through Alouette. Alouette orders at PBR and Marco every 10 days or so and ordering frequency is getting higher lately. Pretty busy on the home service front, not much going on at the operator level these days. Just after this thread was started, a...

Stumbling on Flybacks One of my buddies is fixing a D9200 Wells-Gardner digital monitor (one of the last CRTs from Wells-Gardner) and asked if Alouette had some flybacks left over for this multi-mode 27" beast.
