Re: How do you guys pay PBR?

I would prefer to order direct as I've done it many times before and I'm just in the habit of doing so. Robert and Mike need to keep the lights on, so they need to make a profit by marking things up a little bit. I don't mind paying that little bit extra to them, but like I said I'm already in talks...

Re: How do you guys pay PBR?

I've asked Jimmy if it's just easier for me to order locally through one of the vendors here. Canada Post money orders are no longer accepted. I don't think Steve is going to be taking BitCoin any time soon so my options are pretty limited. I don't think I've had this much difficulty trying to give ...

Re: How do you guys pay PBR?

Order through Robert at Alouette. They order from PBR weekly I believe. I'll do this next time. I'm already in conversation with Jimmy. They had an online option last time I ordered, worked for me. Jimmy sent me all the payment details when I ordered. He mentioned this option but also said it wasn'...

How do you guys pay PBR?

Hi guys. I am placing an order with PBR. This isn't my first order. Their payment options have changed. I use to send an international money order in USD, but these are no longer accepted. Jimmy has told me they are no longer able to cash them. I'm actually surprised it took this long for them to be...

Re: Winter is coming

Now that I have my grail (thanks Jason), I've been working on making it mine. My primary focus has been on my beat up Surfer though. I was going to wait until next spring to refurb the cabinet (something I have always wanted to try) but I am thinking of adding heaters to my garage now and making thi...

Craig, I have to bail on tonight. I feel like garbage. I am pretty sure it is just a cold but either way I'm not taking chances being around people. I'll see how I am in the morning.

Re: Oh. My. God.

I wish they would have created these using titles that haven't already been done. Use some of the virtual tables that have been created. I think that would have hit home with the likes of us pinball fanatics then.

[EDIT] So after you use too much pressure and break off two of the legs under the insert... How do you remove the insert?

How do I unstick a star rollover?

I replaced the star rollovers in my Gottlieb Surfer. The old ones were broken, and dirty. To get the old ones out I cut the shafts off. I cleaned the top of the inserts and installed the new ones. The news ones went in fine, but they are getting stuck in the down position. I should have cleaned the ...

Re: How do I take an EM lockbar receiver apart

Thanks for the advice. I thought that it might rust up again quickly too, so I ended up waxing everything. I didn't want to use any oils. I used the XXX Carnuba Wax that Adriano use to use on his projects. Hopefully this will help.

For receivers I start with a brass wirewheel. If the rust/crud is stubborn I switch to steelwheel.
Thanks Rob. Are you using a Dremel with a brass wirewheel? I bought a bunch of these but I find the brass wires fly out even on low speeds. How does it come apart?

How do I take an EM lockbar receiver apart

Hi guys, I'm doing some clean-up on my Surfer. The lockbar receiver was a rusty, corroded, ooze-filled mess. I removed it from the pin and I've been using my dremel to sand it down. The one side is coming out great, but the lockbar fin is in the way on the other side. Are these things riveted togeth...
