Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

These 40 year old game need a lot of love and tweaking , there like a 40 year old car if you never do a tune up eventually she'll run like shit.

With that much attention i'm sure it's going to play like it did in it's glory days .

Great job

Re: before and after

The playfield was nice but paint flaking at the touch in some areas, I've work on many of the games that came from out east . If you buy 1 of those game be prepared to do a lot of work on light sockets and connectors :FP: Nice work by the way. There are only EM's left out there, the rest are in Ott...

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal)

Yeah, but they get the tax back... Less than $3/ week per machine $145 divided by 365 days equals $0.40 per machine , times 10 machines $4.00 a day . 4 coin drops a day . Getting the knocker working at home is always nice but when you pay to play hearing the knocker is some kind of exiting rush. Bu...

Hack or not

I don't think this is the proper way to crimp , leaving exposed live wires .
I always crimp 1 on wire and 1 on insulated wire , leaving no exposed live wire outside connectors .

I could be wrong :FP:
