FS: various parts WH20, Fathom, Space Shuttle, HS etc

I hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been on the forums much this summer. Just like many people, I've had some extra time on my hands and spent some of it going through all my projects and parts. I found a lot of stuff I don't need anymore. Rather than list it piece by piece, here are some photo...

Re: For the Love of Pinball.... What the Hell Did I Just Do?

When I was pretty new to classic Stern's I drove something like 7hrs round trip for a pretty mediocre Meteor. It's not something I'm particularly proud of... but there you have it. The real crazy shit started happening when I got hooked bad and wanted to find a Quicksilver. After striking out everyw...

WTB: Beaver Gumball Hopper/Wheel

Wondering if anyone has a set of these dispensing wheels/hoppers for a classic Beaver Vending gumball machine?

Looking for the pinwheel style shown here.
Let me know what you have? Thanks

Re: Allentown 2020 - Who's going.

I'm sad to be missing it this year. First time in a long while... but I have a big trip planned and Allentown falls right in the middle of it.

Hope everyone has fun. I'll be there in sprit :(

It's always the most fun event in the Pinball calendar for me

Looking for arcade tech

Just wondering if there is a local source for arcade repair (PCB, monitors etc.)? I have an Atari Super Sprint that's been having multiple issues and vids are just not my thing.  I'd love to find someone who can give it a good shakedown and get it running 100% Happy to pay for repair services or wor...

Re: [SOLD] Collector Quality 1980 STERN SEAWITCH

Thanks. The only thing I wish I could've done better/different would've been to find a nice repro playfield. I did get my hands on an example from John Greatwich but the colours were just too far off from original. In the end I managed to get the original looking pretty decent. Lots of airbrushing :...

Anyway, the machine is now sold pending pick-up and going to a good home.

I'm assured it will be shared with many maaca brethren very soon.

Re: [FS] Collector Quality 1980 STERN SEAWITCH

Maybe my gate is an aftermarket addition or was it a late-production change? It really works quite nicely and doesn't interfere with the plunger shot, but without the gate you get some weird effects when shooting for the skill-shot or Special (which is a pretty big challenge on this game). GLWTS I ...

[SOLD] Collector Quality 1980 STERN SEAWITCH

Hi Everyone, I haven't been very active in a while. Lots of projects on the go but not a lot of time to document them. Watch for some cool upcoming restorations on a Bally Fathom and a Stern Dragonfist! I'm also finally getting around to working on my Cactus Canyon. Hopefully I can try and share som...

FS: Custom whitewood/rotisserie work table

I'm getting rid of a few projects/parts that I no longer have time for. Here I'm selling this custom rig that I made up a few years ago when toying around with making a custom WWII pin. The idea was to make a working prototype platform for wiring up and test-playing a white-wood. Sturdy construction...

FS: Custom BATMAN cabinet - possible VPIN project

Hey Everyone, I have a couple of parts from custom pinball projects that never got off the ground or just died. This one was for a Batman 66 themed machine (prior to Stern announcing theirs) and was meant to be modelled after an early 1980's solid state pin. The base cabinet is from a Williams Fan-T...

Re: [FS] Gottlieb MELODY

Thanks. It's a cool game and I like that you have 3-4 different ways to add a ball. Nice holiday theme as well.

I'm just overloaded at the moment. Lots of new projects coming in and something has to go.

Thinking of selling my Gottlieb MELODY. This is the less common add-a-ball version of Sing Along. The game features a cool animation feature where the saucers kick the ball into each other towards the right-most saucer before releasing it. Coincidentally, this is also one of the key ways of adding a...

Road Runner is super cool. I love how the car flies off the road and resets.
There was a project for sale last year in Allentown. You can see it in my first post.

Well, it looks like I'm off to the races. Thanks to singlezero for my first foray into the world of EM arcade machines (not counting my pins and baseball games of course). This is the 1970 MIDWAY Invaders from Outer Space that was mentioned in the thread earlier. It's a super neat theme. It needs a ...

Re: Modern pinball paradigms

This one probably goes back as far as MM and AFM, but the bash toy is somethig that only really started becoming popular in the late 90s and then it really was adopted heavily by almost every stern machine after the B/W shutdown. Magnetic grabs are another one that have become very commonplace. LED ...

The backglass on HMM is pure gold :) Here's an old photo before I started cleaning it up. Also, note that since mine is a prototype, it does not have the factory HMM artwork on the cab. It seems they were planning to use the same Bally Midway art as many other 6803 pins... but in a blue and hot pink...

Hey Guys, I'd like to find a local EM gun game. I'm also fine with some of the more military EM games that focus on submarine or missile action. I saw this row of machines at Allentown last year and fell in love, but I didn't have space coming home. index.jpg I'd like to add one to my EM room for so...
