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

Back from Newfoundland. Rough week. I find that I have less energy to perform 65hrs of work in 5 days with extreme stress the whole time as much ad I used to. I even did a mental trip to that little dark place in my mind that I really don't enjoy. But a 1hr drive around the beautiful city of Corner ...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

Well, I am home for the first time since Pincon. I just moved the pins from my garage office to storage. Kinda having a rough time. Work has me running around like mad. Leaving Monday 6am for Rouyn Noranda, but back Wednesday. Putting in time to finish a project for someone. Coming out sweet! More o...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

With an unserviced Williams, I recommend staring with the basics. If you don't, you will be chasing issues. 1- refresh the power supply. Change the 2 diodes near the big cap with 6A4 diodes. Then replace the big cap and 2 smaller ones (150mf). Replace any rough header pins and connectors. 2- chances...

And today's lovely destination in Sparky's Canadian Tour is Corner Brook, Newfoundland. It is 6C and there are still traces of snow on the local ski hill. BUT... the place is truly beautiful and the people here are as nice as can be. I strongly recommend that you put visiting NL on your bucket lists...

Won't you be my neighbor (part 2)

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

Sold a pin... stings a bit. But more to go. One down, heading to Ontario.

Just have to figure out which is next. Not much time to do so. Back from Quebec, and now off to Newfoundland. After that, Toronto. Milwaukee. Halifax.

No time for pinball anymore.

Tout ceux qui achètent cash ou sur crédit et qui revendent régulièrement depuis les début du hobby doivent avec fait beaucoup de profit et n'on surement aucun problème pour acheter une nib cash aujourd'hui.

Re: Ever taken a loan to buy a pinball machine ?

It still makes me wonder how I can get financing to buy an 800$ couch, but there is nothing in-house for a 10000$ pinball machine. I spoke with Starburst about that years ago and they said something was coming, but it never panned out.

And so I remain NIB-less. ;)

I am thinking of Sorcerer (got lots of comments on it) and Totem, which people in the tournament seemed to really appreciate.

Sparky is bringing one to PinCon. He has a lot of pins. You might be able to talk him into selling it if you're coming.


Nope. Not for sale. Sorry.
