Re: Making a plastic Translite???

If you are going to spend the time and effort to do this, why not work with greatwichjohn and have a repro made available for everyone? A number of members have done this in the past with classic Sterns and the plus side is you get a brand new b/g instead of a translite. It's also a great way to pay...

Re: Woodrail legs

Also check with Mike Hanley at the Church. They could likely be brought up to the Ottawa show if you're in no hurry

Re: IT’S OFFICIAL MONTREAL !! - C’EST OFFICIEL MONTREAL !!

Robert - my sincere congrats, this is outstanding news. Although I likely won't be able to make it out your way for the inaugural bash, please don't forget to tipple one for me (and post some pix - esp the Gottlieb sign!).
Well done my friend.

Re: 9 ball......finally back home!!

Nice and good show! 9Ball is a great game. If you decide to replace the backglass, John Greatwich's repros are really nice. Please post pics of the machine when you are done.

Re: The THANKS-giving thread

Huge shout out to HPR, Redketchup, Ottogd and Greatwich John. A while back a few of us embarked on a b/g repro project and it took a lot of effort and time from all these folks to make it happen. Turns out that yesterday I received a delivery with the end result - an absolutely stunning Lightning gl...

Re: The etymology of a sign

I miss the quality and customer service that Laniel Automatic use to stand for as well Don. Everyone who helped with the move from Pitt street got one of these as a sort of a communion. If I forgot someone or you forgot to pick one up, I still have some. Brand new never used crests, ready for stapl...

Re: The etymology of a sign

Brings back a lot of memories for me too Rob. What I remember is their excellent customer service - didn't matter if you had 2 machines or 200. I was sad to see them go.

Turns out I have more than a few of their machines and I snapped pix of a couple. Any guesses as to which ones these are?

we can make a copy there...then copy 2 at once...then 4...ect ect.

USB 3.0 would be better to speed things up....but pickers cant be choosers.



Great idea! That way it would be able to make it out to the sticks (read: my place)

Re: glass pre order for ottawa show

I think it depends on his supplier. I've purchased a bunch from him over the years and some have had them, some not. I will say that the ones that have them are not very noticeable when installed (I try them in different corners to make it the least visible).

Yes - all of the Church's glass is tempered. No worries about sharp edges either, all are sanded.
