Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

Guys I think I'm done for now. It's been a long haul, and a lot of fun. However I realize even over the past year even with covid lockdowns, I've barely touched my machines. I have 2 in torn down state of repair that have been this way for years now. Just too many other things on the go in life righ...

Re: How's Your Pandemic Coming Along

Pandemic....I was off for 5 months and never even touched a pinball. I still enjoy reading everyone's stories here, but have been too busy with other hobbies. I sold a bunch of machines, 2 more projects to finish up and sell. Maybe I'll just move them as is.

Re: 3D printers... recommendations?

I've been happy with my cheapo Creality Ender. Did a few minor upgrades but it has survived my kids abusing it for a year now. I'd probably go with a larger one next time but stick with Creality.

Re: $100 Toaster

Polish it they say....Yeah baby, I've got 40 hours into that already and it could use another 40. We are doing a full RV conversion. Looking for a vintage propane stove if anyone has any leads? And some vintage theatre wall sconces.

Re: $100 Toaster

I've recently purchased a 1948 GMC Silversides bus. It is amazing the engineering on that thing and how many parts were designed to be rebuilt. It's 70 years old, probably has 3 million miles on it, but I was able to spend about a week working on it after sitting for 20 years and drove it 2000 km to...

I don't know why but this followed me home today. It is sitting in quarantine in the van for a few days before it comes in. I said no more projects & I just moved a couch back into the games room. Now the damn couch has to move again.

Re: Buying and selling during COVID-19

In the coming months anything listed on Kijiji is going to be in a buyers market. People without work are going to get more desperate and list their "valuables" to try and stay afloat. It is sad, but in the end a pinball is only worth what the market will pay at the time. I have a number of items li...

So I told myself not 2 hours before I am not going to get into another pinball restoration. I'm done. I even said that when someone was picking up Alien Poker just before I got into this.

Re: Flight 2000

Nice scores. I only managed to just break 3,000,000 on mine before i sold it. It was bastardy fast with the new PF polished and waxed :) Took 6 months for some of the wax to wear off and become playable. Wish I'd kept it, one of the ones I regret selling.

Re: Discussion... old-school 5V regulator, or new switching regulator?

I love fixing old school boards and keeping machines original, however when it comes to power supplies I just replace with modern stuff.
