Re: OT: What would you do ? ( Car repair question)

My caravan gas mileage comments are from personal experience. Keep in mind that I rented the GT model and I think it has a bigger engine and more HP compared to other caravan’s. Couple other things that may have impacted my mileage were the fact that it was fully packed with 2 pins and parts each wa...

Re: OT: What would you do ? ( Car repair question)

Have been casually car shopping again to replace my 2005 Nissan X-Trail pin and family hauler. In the past I have done exactly as above. 4 years old used with as low KM as possible. Never from a dealer, always private sale. I have rented and liked the Dodge Caravan GT model.... You can get them a co...

Re: [Do you insure your Pinball Machines? b]

My advice would be to go through an insurance broker who acknowledges the value of your possessions and confirms to you in writing that they are covered under your home contents insurance.

Re: The Munsters Pinball - Pro & Premium Teaser

Exact same experience as Lowrent......... Saw the video, thought it was an Addams Family knockoff... Decided to google "The Munsters" because I have never heard of them. A 70 Episode sitcom that ran from September 24, 1964 to May 12, 1966??? :shock: I didn't realize the show was so popular...

Re: Gottlieb Screws and Nuts

I would take the screw into Ottawa Fastener Supply and see if they have it.

If not they may be able to special order it. I have placed several special order requests for obscure pinball hardware before and they always come through with exactly what is needed.

Re: Building my own FATHOM... getting started

I am very happy to see this project close out too.

I had a small hand in getting things to where they are now along with some hot water that came with it.

All a means to an end really and in the end everything works out the way it's supposed to.

Sweet dreams and rip that spinner.

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

The only things good about the past are the good memories and learning from mistakes. Making a mistake is fine except if you make the same mistake again in the future. 'Should have learned the first time'. Like when you install the head of a pinball machine but the cord is still in the cabinet. A gu...
