Re: Time to clean my pinball, any simple recommandation?

Don't give up. The vid threads on pinside are enormous, but they are really worth reading.
Ask for Robert in the parts department at Alouette.
Remember, Novus 2 is abrasive. Lots of people use it, but that does not mean it's the right product for the job.

Re: Laser Cue bell. Any way to turn it off?

If you don't like un/soldering, it might be easier to just cut the wire just before the solder spot. Keep the wire as long as possible in case the next owner wants to repair it.

Re: One Handed Soldering

Indeed, those handy tools are called a third hand.
I love them when working on the bench, but it's more challenging when working under the playfield.

Re: Time to clean my pinball, any simple recommandation?

Electro-mechanical pinballs require oil, but not the solid state machines.
marcospecialties.com calls them Rollover star buttons.
Often, the wax can also be a good cleaner. Make sure you use the right kind of wax. Vid says to stay away from anything containing silicone.

Re: Time to clean my pinball, any simple recommandation?

Indeed, vid is the best source of information you can find. Waxing is good, but not all waxes are good. Read vid's guide carefully. The plastic protecting the playfield is called mylar. Never use water on a playfield, it will make the wood swell and crack the art. A lot of products contain water. Yo...

Re: Want to buy a pinball machine, delivered to Montreal, for like 2k?

Good for you.

You can buy foot rubbers at Alouette Amusement. They are made to fit the leg levelers exactly. I'm not sure if it helps with the sound, but they are great to protect the floor.
Yeah, even with the volume control way down, the coils continue to make a lot of noise.

Everything this marketplace merchant sells is outrageously overpriced. Maybe we should remind him Canada uses the canadian dollar, not pesos.

R.A.B. lists a few more places to play pinball in Montreal here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=25649#p218502
You might get lucky, but in general few sellers offer delivery. To increase your options, consider hiring a moving company to deliver your pinball.

Re: Want to buy a pinball machine, delivered to Montreal, for like 2k?

When I use pinside for price guidance, I take the middle point and multiply by 1.55 That accounts for the exchange rate plus the tax at customs but it does not account for local market conditions. You already know you can try many titles with virtual pinball. You can also try many machines at a pinb...

Re: Looking for someone to repair/restore my machine

There are professionals in Montreal willing to repair your machine for a fee. Restoring pinballs is a labor of love, people usually do it as a hobby for themselves. That's why it is important to specify if you need a repair or a restoration. Like Sparky said, advice is free on maaca if you decide to...

Re: Stern Jurassic Park pictures

The pictures show the dino can open its mouth. I assume the ramp can feed the dino based on the scoop shape of the jaw and the lack of lower teeth in the front.
At least on the Premium/LE, it appears the dino can also move from left to right.

Stern is running out of things to vault (except Tron), so you may be right to predict they will start vaulting DE pins or remake them.
