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 :...

Re: [FS] Collector Quality 1980 STERN SEAWITCH

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.

[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...

Road Runner is super cool. I love how the car flies off the road and resets.

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).

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...

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: [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.
