Re: LF: the weird arcade stuff

One thing I would love to be able to see (and play) is an old carnival shooting gallery with animatronics. I remember seeing these as a little kid. They had either a jungle theme or a western theme. They seemed to run off compressed air and light sensors. You would shoot a piano player and he would ...

Re: Cleaning circuit boards

Great advice, guys. So dishwasher is a no-no. I like the Hertel spray method. I am also considering a rubbing alcohol bath in order to get all moisture out after cleaning. So, 1- Hertel spray and soft brush 2- rinse with warm water 3- dry with compressed air 4- rubbing alcohol bath for a few secs 5-...

Re: FS: rare PLASTIC EBD playfield NOS 250$

OK, a little info on these playfields. These were made by Bally when the cost of maple plywood went skyhigh in 1980. So Bally experimented with a playfield made of plastic. Other manufacturers also tried a few things. It is because of the cost inflation that Gottlieb tried steel cabinets (abandoned ...

SOLD: rare PLASTIC EBD playfield NOS 250$

FS, a rare Eight Ball Deluxe playfield made out of plastic! This was an experiment by Bally in the early 80's.

It has scuffs and some clear cracking, but I kept the chips so it can be reglued and recleared if desired. Or great as super nice wall art.

250$ firm

FS: CPR Sorcerer playfield, silver grade, 750$

Hey guys, I recently got a Sorcerer playfield after waiting for over 2 years for it. I bought it, but the issue is that 18 months after ordering it initially, I sold the game. So... I don't need it. Add the fact that I have my eye on a game right now, so this will go. I am asking 750$ for it. Still ...

Cleaning circuit boards

Greetings to all, I thought I would get a discussion going on circuit board cleaning. I believe many can use the info, even myself. I have 150+ boards to go through and I wanted to know what your cleaning technique was. Some say dishwasher, some say no dishwasher. Some with soap and hot water in a s...

Yes, things will be different. And I do agree that we must be imaginative and find new ways to truly connect. But this being said, I also firmly believe that hard times tend to create rifts, and one side usually loses in time. I do see a lot of good people do things differently, acknowledging that t...
