Re: So... what is the future of new pinballs?

I won't buy a new car sight unseen before going to look at it and test drive it. My last vehicle I bought over the internet. Even picked the colour. The first time I saw it was when I went in to sign the papers. First time I drove it was when I drove home. I mean, it's a Toyota. It looks, feels, an...

So... what is the future of new pinballs?

I see the excitement over a fuzzy picture of the Mandalorian pinball, sold out even before any images came out. Prices have skyrocketed to the point where the 5000$ in 2005 (6500$ today) no longer gets you an NIB pin, or barely a 30-year old DMD. But I digress.... my reflection is not on pricing. So...

Re: FULL: Big vaccine clinic, Ottawa, May 8th: Sign up here

Got my first AZ shot yesterday. I feel like a bag of crap right now. Vaccine didn't kick in until about 10PM and then hit like a heavyweight boxer. Aches, chills, headache. The headache is probably the worst I've ever gotten (I don't get many). All that said, don't be a dick - get your vaccine and ...

Re: WHERE TO GET PARTS in CANADA!!!

Well, not much of a secret, but Pinball Medics is expanding! A brand new location will open at 923 Girouard in Montreal, corner of St-Jacques, so close to Decarie and Turcot interchange.

Parts, machine sales, and machine / board repairs... will be great!

Well, I still have my Wizard of Wor and I will never sell it. In fact, I STILL play it EVERY evening that I can. I have yet to beat my record of 159300 points on 3 lives. But I never get tired of it. I did 113000 last night. But... you have to play a real machine to thoroughly enjoy it. The Atari 26...

Re: The playfield dimples horror show !!

Ball velocity and ball drops increase, yet clear and material (wood) is still the same. So, unless they change the ball material, or surface material, steel beats wood. But, problem is that purists will never accept a change. And understandably so. Ball reactions change dramatically. And they are th...

And btw, anyone who charges you 2000$ to fix a leak on a manual transmission is completely and utterly full of shit. If it is a lip seal from either the input shaft, or the output shaft, they are simple lip seals. 10 bucks at Rockauto. Same for the shifter seal. And they sell sleeves to fix the shaf...

Re: [OT] Car Repair : Fix it or Ditch it ?

Easy. 1- shop for a new car you like 2- once you decided, clean up the old car as much as possible, degrease the bottom to avoid looking like it leaked 3- go immediately to a dealer, and trade it in for a new car You will get less than market, but they don't give a shit. Car goes to auction anyways....

Re: Haggis Pinball Announces FATHOM REVISITED!

Worse? How is that? I'm not saying it's an awesome deal but they are below Stern's pricing for pro/LE. Sure it's a remake of an older game but it's NIB with (potentially) better pf, modern electronics/mechs, and updated code for the fancy version. BTW I checked the details and the Mermaid edition c...
