MAACA meeting using ZOOM!!

Greetings to all, So we all know that considering the current status of things, social distancing is the rule to follow, but there is nothing that states that we should stop chatting! A while back, I decided to pay for a Zoom membership. So, I am allowed up to 100 participants for up to a 24hr chat ...

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

Well, as predicted, "The Man" is crumbling under the weight of my work. They even called me at home today because they knew I wouldn't answer my cell. The problem though is that by having 2 teens in the house (especially Emma), the phone doesn't even ring half a ring before one picks up. S...

Re: Project Xenon, farm fresh!

The next question is what made the F4 solenoid fuse blow initially... e.g. the root cause of the problem. Shorted bridge rectifier, or more likely a shorted drive transistor on the Solenoid Driver board, along with a usual associated burned coil and/or missing/opened diode across the lugs - when ov...

Re: Netflix is working on a live-action 'Dragon's Lair' movie

Well, the previous 2 comments are a perfect representation of what Dragon’s Lair is to most. It is a true love/hate thing. A very polarizing game. A masterpiece or a master piece of shit. Lol As for the movie? Sure. The story is good. But will we have an overdose of Reynolds at some point? I love hi...

Re: Project Xenon, farm fresh!

Ok so the cab is now solid. Well, the bottom anyways. Lol. I have to check the neck plate on it once I set the cab up. These old cabs, especially with a head as heavy as Xenon, end up being wobbly when mounted on the cabinet. That’s because the panel on the cabinet that is holding the head tends to ...

Re: Project Xenon, farm fresh!

Ok! Next step, bottom panel edge and backpanel resealing. As many know, around early 1980, Bally switched from a plywood backpanel on the cabinet to a cheaper chipboard panel. Not that these are bad but after 40 years, these tend to fall apart. Especially when the cabinet is stored upright on a conc...

A little bit of info to complement the sale. For what it's worth, that is a bit of a rare cabinet.

I had to responsibly turn down picking up 2 pins in a week due to everything going on. If seller moves on to someone else, I understand. But I can't jeopardize anyone's health. Once this blows over? Sure. No problem. But if you purchase a machine, ask for the seller to hold it if possible. And do th...
