Re your comments on the video: I'm not a Liberal and I also think Trudeau is a bit of a dope, but I want you to be aware that "The Great Reset" thing is a conspiracy theory with deep anti-Semitic roots.

Re: FS: ToM

Just checking in here: absolutely don't ever take isolation transformers out. They're needed because the RFI filters installed in solid state games bias the game ground to 60VAC if: -the cord ground pin is lifted -your outlet ground has failed -your circuit has an open ground even if there is a rece...

that one is great, do you know where it was published? TinEye gives the first known upload for this image to Aug 17th, 2011 to the flickr gallery of a person who posts retrofuturistic images. It has been widely disseminated on the internet since, but seemingly without much discussion of where it wa...

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.

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.
