Re: FS: Couple Arcade Projects

Goddamn, I won't lie, there are at least 3 I am drooling over right now, but man, I just can't right now. I am an Exidy freak, so Cheyenne and ESPECIALLY Venture (which I played the SHIT out of on my old Colecovision) are up my alley. And Bank Panic is just one of those games I really loved. ... and...

Re: Alouette Amusement Gift Card Request

If I got a price for a game as-is, I would get a game. Nothing I can't handle. The only projects they keep in stock are the rejects. The AAA machines are sold while still in the container, and the decent projects they keep to themselves for their restoration shop. I would trust RAB when he says we ...

There are very few pinball projects worth spending any of your winter restore time on in this building at present.

Come the new year, that will be another story and I will keep you posted before they come in.

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

would that not point to a weak solder point or poor connection, therefore higher resistance? I don't know tolerances, but I imagine a circuit board should be able to tolerate a minor amount of stress without breaking traces. Not necessarily. Keep in mind that a relay has a mechanical component to i...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

No power at coils but I had some at the A/C relay. Ended up being something as stupid as the relay board not liking it when it is clipped in. Board gets slightly twisted and relay doesn't work. - I moved the relay board a bit and coils now ok. Can you explain this part? Is that an intermittent conn...

Well, I brought Fire back from the dead. Game wouldn't start - fixed coindoor wiring harness (repaired a hack job) - fixed broken wire on test button. I could then set it to Free Play... but... Coils 1-8 didn't fire. And no flash bulbs either. No power at coils but I had some at the A/C relay. Ended...
