Re: LF: white posts

When I restored my Sure Shot, I ran into the same issue with the posts. Many disintegrated upon removal. It was a widespread issue with Sure Shots and other titles released that year, I'm told.

Re: The Allentown 2018 thread!

I'm happy with my new Allentown addition. And a new bingo enthusiast is born! I bought this beauty from Nick Baldridge (he of the For Amusement Only Podcast, and Multi-Bingo programming fame). It made the trip back home home safely with only a few minor adjustments needed to get it working properly....

Bay Area Amusements also has the glass in stock for $249.00USD. Maybe check their shipping fees and see if they are a bit cheaper?

Re: Container Pins Discussion

I liked this article discussing container pins and how Drano gave up a while ago. https://creditdotpinball.com/tag/container-pinballs/ I liked the article title even more, making me think this is the same Italian distributor he is talking about: “Only Give A Defect On Display, Any Stupidity” Here's...

Good morning all! Does anyone have a decent condition Bally Six Million Dollar Man flyer?

The resolution of the one on IPDB will not work for what I'm a...

Re: LF: Classic Stern Coin Door

The side hinge is chewed at the top and bottom, and the shell is dented and twisted. I will try to work on mine, but I was hoping to find something complete nearby to avoid it.

Re: FT: Bally Carnival Queen Bingo / Interest check

Like Cait, I've always wanted to dip my toe into the bingo pool. This game looks to be the perfect example for someone to do just that.

If I had trade bait, I would make an offer. GLWT for a great guy and an asset to our hobby.

With Pinitech's DIY Retrofit Conversion LED Display kit, you can use the parts from broken or outgassed Bally/Stern displays and turn them into a set of fully-fuctioning low-voltage LED displays. What once was old, is new again...and for a fraction of the cost of an aftermarket plug-and-play display...
