Re: Early Bally Ceramic Capacitors

Digikey is awesome. Less than $10 overnight shipping. Here is an equivalent product: https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/vishay-bc-components/K473K10X7RF5UH5/BC2686CT-ND/2356900 Here is the old-school ceramic look, but it's an inferior product: https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/panasonic...

Re: Wanted: Williams Time Warp Sound card

New replacements are available but honestly you might want to check your connectors and re-flow solder everywhere on the board since you're comfortable with a soldering iron. Bad connectors will give you the same results with a new board. In any case, replacements aren't terribly expensive: http://w...

I have a 42" TV I can bring if someone can help me lift Centaur II into my truck on Friday. It's already in my front hallway, no basement involved.

Re: Pinfeast at the CNE Toronto for 2019

Well, I wish you the best success for your local pinball scene. Ottawa and Montreal's scene has a bit more punk rock ethic to it, and I think I echo MadTitan's thoughts above. You crossed picket lines to throw your event and are charging penalties to well meaning volunteers and both are things that ...

Re: Pinfeast at the CNE Toronto for 2019

How about "Machines cannot be removed before xx on Sunday- No exceptions. If this isn't possible for you then please leave your machine at home."

If machines leaving early isn't a problem as long as you get paid, then machines leaving early isn't really a problem, is it?

Re: Pinfeast at the CNE Toronto for 2019

I'm sure they'll have it sorted by then, for the sake of the workers. I can't imagine a lockout that protracted. At that point, I won't be crossing the line, I'll be marching on it with them. Half of the machines in my collection are from good IATSE brothers: there are many Ottawa pinballers who are...

Re: WTB: Gottlieb Premier Tag Team Parts

You can do it! There was an NOS playfield on pinside and I don't think it sold. The plastics are the hardest thing to find, really. Maybe CPR rerun eventually, but it's not exactly an in-demand title for restoration.

Good luck! It's a really fun game.

I brought one back from the deep last year but wasn't able to find a source for plastics, unfortunately. Still have one with a tiny chip.

Re: LF: arrangeball

Played a lot of arrangeball at three different arcades while I was there and honestly it didn't hold my interest compared to what else was on offer. I think instead of bringing Japan here, you'd be better off bringing yourself to Japan. I may or may not be secretly planning my next trip already.
