Re: Won't you be my neighbor, part 4!

He had some equipment on site, but nothing major. Most harsher stuff was outsourced I believe. He did mostly steam cleaning.

Won't you be my neighbor, part 4!

Well, another one goes on sale!!! One of my close neighbors had a dry-cleaning business out of his garage and recently closed it, and reinstalled a nice garage door. Well, apparently his wife fell in love with a waterfront property and wants to prepare their retirement years, so, they are testing th...

Re: Have you been bullied as a kid ?

I am happy that this subject has come to light. Regardless of a forum's natural subject, this is something that needs to be brought up. I had somewhat a similar situation. Regardless of what I did, I never seemed to fit in and was picked on relentlessly. I was a kid that spoke perfect French, went t...

Have the seller sign the ad, write PAID X amount and write his phone number so they can validate immediately when you come back.

Re: Bally Eight Ball - Chime Coil Stuck On

That theory would apply if it was electromechanical, but Eight Ball is solid state. Coils are usually momentarily activated by the mpu. What you have either a shorted coil return wire, or a shorted transistor on the solenoid driver. Chances are that the TIP102 that is driving that coil is fried. Ro ...

Re: Replacement colour LED DMD panels - 128x32

I am heading to Toronto on the 28th and can meet up with Dino on the 30th. I can pick up displays and bring them to QC for free. And from there I can bring them to the MPL meeting at the end of November. No hassle nor fear of damage in shipping.

Dino is a super guy. Buy with total confidence.

Re: "You bought WHAT??" The Tehkan mini-cabinet!!

Well, the more I read, the more I think this game should be kept original.

In fact, I wonder if I can get them reproduced....

The tub would be the costly part, but not impossible. I have a metal break (bender). But no welder though.

Hmm....

Re: "You bought WHAT??" The Tehkan mini-cabinet!!

Some more details on these cabs. They are apparently called LAVA cabs. And they were not dedicated. They were designed to have different games in them.

Very cool.
