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.

[FS] Gottlieb MELODY

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...

Re: WTB: EM gun/rifle game or similar

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.

Re: WTB: EM gun/rifle game or similar

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 ...

Re: LF: Volcano, Heavy Metal Meltdown

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...

WTB: EM gun/rifle game or similar

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...

Re: LF: Volcano, Heavy Metal Meltdown

Well, I've been working on getting my HMM up and ready to go.... but, as you know, it's not exactly a common example of this title 8-) I got it for a fair price and it unexpectedly ended up being a prototype/sample machine. But it's likely the only intact proto HMM in existence as far as I can tell....

Re: Your Pinball Status 2019

I've been cutting back steadily, so that's been job #1 for a while. I also wanted to add some variety to the game-room and brought my vids downstairs (sacrificing a few pinball spots in the process). Super Sprint was restored over the holidays and my Pacman cocktail is nearing completion too. In 201...

Re: Looking for 3-slot arcade door + Atari steering wheel parts

Another update. I have most of the steering wheel parts I need now (although one of my encoder wheels has a crack). One of the last things I'm trying to locate now is a correct coin box for this machine. I'm going for the full monty on this restoration and want it as original as possible. If anyone ...

Re: [FOR SALE] Williams TAXI

I used the hardtop on Firepower. The look and the feel is great. The main difference you will notice from a playfield with clearcoat is that the hardtop has holes that go around certain things like some of the bent metal guides. It's also a lot more shiny than a clearcoat (hard to explain), but I'm ...

Re: [FOR SALE] Williams TAXI

I've had some interest in the hardtop on its own and the spare ramps.


If anyone is just interested in the pin, I'm happy to split them up as sell the pin on its own for $3300.

Hey Guys, I'm working on a new Super Sprint and I'm about to cut a few new parts for it on the CNC. One of them is the large rear access panel. Does anyone have this machine nearby?

I'm so happy to see this conversion finished! It's hard to explain, but I felt really guilty selling the project half completed.

Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

Thanks Robert. Yes, in-line for sure. They look just like what I've got in Fathom. The coils are the main things but yes, the bracket would be a big help. If you have other parts for that assembly (coil stop, plunger, lever etc..) I'll take as much as you have. But, worst case, I may have old ones k...
