Re: What did you do in ''Video Game'' today ??

Fantastic video. Great commentary throughout. I could have done without the ribbon ads but that was a minor complaint.

I had totally forgotten about the Crossbow game. I dumped so many quarters into that one. Ha! Good memories!

Re: WHERE TO GET PARTS in CANADA!!!

Have you tried Ottawa Fastener in Bells Corners? I haven't made it out there yet. I'm trying to avoid unnecessary "browsing" trips. I was hoping someone in the community would say "Yes, they have them here" before I ventured out. I enjoy hunting for pinball parts normally, but not during the pandem...

Re: WHERE TO GET PARTS in CANADA!!!

Does anyone know where to buy machine screws with the built in washer? I tried McMaster-Carr but no luck. These are the screws that usually hold down post rubbers. Pinball Life has them but I'm sure there is a local vendor in Ottawa/Canada. https://www.pinballlife.com/6-32-x-38-machine-screw-with-bu...

FS: Gottlieb Surfer 1976 *Price drop*

Hi everyone, I've decided to put my Surfer up for sale. Many of you already know the history of this pin, but if not you can find some of my repair logs within the MAACA walls and other pinball forums. This was my first EM and it was a mess when I bought it. If you are looking for a pristine, collec...

I've heard the Quebec border is closed to non-residents.

Just strap some skis to the roof of your vehicle and tell them you're going skiing. No ones seems to care on either side of the border.
