Re: How do you guys pay PBR?

Last time I bought there (a year ago) they accepted a Western Union draft printed by my bank that I mailed to them.

Re: Williams Gorgar pinball 1979

There's a great vid's guide to playfield swap on pinside. I couldn't tell you how to touch up a backglass; touchups don't usually go well.

Re: Ld: Dataeast pinball fuse clips

Before ordering from the US, look up fuseholders on the digikey.ca web site. Ten bucks flat rate overnight shipping and they're in the $0.25 range per clip. While you're there, stock up on fuses and other components. They're my go-to for this kind of thing.

Cut that battery off the board and replace U19 with this NVRam: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Pinball-5101-NVRAM-Module-Bally-Williams-System-3-7-Gottlieb-System-80-A-B/233695919163 It's a Canadian seller, believe he is an occasional poster here and the price is very right.

Unrelated to your problem - If there is a battery on your board, cut it off and get rid of it yesterday.

Re: Pinballers Presents: “Craig's Covid Slap Fest" - August 25th to 30th

I'm putting up a 40' antenna tower in the next few days in my Kanata back yard. Fully legal and below the permit requirement, but I'm sure I'll have a visit from the bylaw squad anyway.

Re: Bally Supersonic playfield retheme ideas....

Sand PF down to bare wood and seal. Build a cab out of acrylic. Buy a set of clear plastics protectors and install them instead of repro plastics. Glass plate instead of backglass.

You've got yourself the incredible visible pinball machine.

Re: Playfield Protectors

I'd take a razor knife to just the front incline of the cutaways that the ball is prone to catch on. Shave a tiny tiny low angled bevel and and it should solve the problem.

Re: Bootleg Meteorites

reflow every solder point on the whole monitor board. You haven't changed anything except you've moved things and now it's changed, therefore you have a mechanical contact issue somewhere

Attach one of these on everyone caught going to a party: https://www.amazon.com/Costume-Accessor ... 00A122EX8/

They're all too stupid to realize it's a fake tracker anyway but maybe it'll convince some of them to stay home.

Re: Bootleg Meteorites

Looks to me like a problem with the blanking line/spot killer circuit on the monitor board. Checked for cracked solder or bad header connections as well as short circuits/corrosion whiskers. Definitely don't leave it on more than a few seconds with that centre dot as it's burning a hole into the mid...

Re: when can bars turn pinball machines in again?

Well, the interesting thing about Brampton was that the house party was a *ticketed* event, with valet parking, alcohol sales, and with tall perimeter fencing installed to block outsiders from seeing in. Doesn't sound like any house party that I've ever been to. This was a club event, headline perfo...

Re: when can bars turn pinball machines in again?

Consider for a brief moment that your experience does not qualify you to interpret data from medical studies.

This is not intended to be an insult. I am not qualified to be a steamfitter, but I would listen to Denis and not only cherry pick data that I think perhaps supported my existing opinion.

Re: when can bars turn pinball machines in again?

Natural herd immunity is not occurring and the indicators, from peer reviewed studies and the medical doctors interpreting them for us laypeople, is that it cannot occur with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible. To repeat that statement is, at this point, repeating dangerous misinformation. Please stop.

It won't ever go away if we keep spreading it while saying "what if it never goes away." That's such a shit death cult attitude.
