Re: Redemption Hockey Pin

Step one: buy new gumballs. Bulk gumballs and capsule toys cost nothing! I think I'm going to give gachapon capsules out at Hallowe'en this year: http://www.gumball.com

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

:puke that's how i felt when i broke my SBM backglass I had to pay $94 in duty/HST when it came into the country, and the only way to get a refund is by re-exporting it. I can't surrender it to CBSA, I can't destroy it, I have to put it back to Europe on a boat... stupid. It still cost me $30 to sh...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

Edit: figured out after much head scratching that the leds were defective. Thus giving me dim lights. Replaced with 44's . No more bargain cheap leds. Was it those $0.50 ones from Comet? I bought a tonne of them for my games and within a year they all had to go. Huge mistake, although the rest of t...

Re: Will City Take Pinball Glass on Garbage Day?

I bought a pinball recently and the playfield glass is seriously scratched. Anyone know if I can leave that in my regular garbage as is? Hoping I don't have to break it up first. The city of Ottawa wants glass panes and windows to be put with the regular garbage, unbroken, but they will collect it ...

Lest it need repeating, Astroglide is terrible lube for *all* applications, including the ones it's intended for.

Best lubricant for clockwork/gears?

So I have an interflip dragon with a clockwork gearing mechanism to step down the ratio from the drive motor. The old lube was pretty gummy so I cleaned it out, and then I relubed it with a silicone-based spray lube that has worked well for me. It played great for a couple of months but I guess some...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

I seem to be in some dumb fight on pinside because CPR substituted blue for green in their run of Meteor backglasses. Oh, and I met the mayor of Ottawa this morning. Still probably won't vote for him again, but I met him.

Missing Circlip from Classic Stern Drop Target

Anyone got one of these Jesus clips kicking around? I will probably end up at Ottawa Fastener Supply tomorrow but I don't know if they have the right size.

It's off the "O" in METEOR.

Don't forget to stock up on all their other goodies at the same time! They have one of the best selections/pricing of fuses out there. Also great for random driver SCRs, header pins, IC sockets, etc.

Re: TDA2030A in Ottawa?

Maybe someone has a couple kicking around but they're obsolete. LM1875 is a drop in replacement and you can buy them from Digikey for under $5. Order today and you'll have them Tuesday or Wednesday, flat rate shipping $10. https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/texas-instruments/LM1875T-NOPB/LM187...
