It will be an integral part of my basement gameroom setup. Once complete, every item in there will have a significance to me. This radio has 2. One, it comes from Dave and I appreciate the gift. 2, it is of historical significance to me, as it is from a time when my grandparents were born. So, it re...

Old radio rebirth

So, I needed a distraction. I am sick and tired of working on pins as of late and I needed something else to work on before I set fire to everything. Pinball is just work now.

Re: Will City Take Pinball Glass on Garbage Day?

Take 2 garbage bags and some duct tape. Put a garbage bag over one end, the other bag over the other, tape them together, put safety goggles on and whack an edge with a hammer.

Poof.

Bag full of diamonds. Put it in the trash.

My presence is now unsure. Scheduling is always difficult for me. I may be heading for Amqui to give a class and havevto prepare for it.

I could use them in my shop if you are ok with that.
