Re: Randy Fromm's DVDs... worth it?

What size is that screen ? LCD's are cheap, especially if it's small (22 inches cost me 200$ in my Rush). BUT, they are 16:9, finding a 4:3 lcd that has a decent refresh rate is very hard these days (but i would guess that if you only need a 15 or 17 inches, they will be easy to find used). The con...

Re: Bally Eight Ball - does not always start up

Have you checked your solenoid driver to see if your 5V is stable? If your filter cap is not doing it's job, and some AC is leaking out, it can cause the MPU to lock up. Could be tons of other things as well... get the multimeter out and start checking things.

Randy Fromm's DVDs... worth it?

Greetings to all, So I find myself gravitating more and more on vids lately. In fact, I have a Taito Multi Checker test bench that I got from Splitskull a while back and I have been thinking of using it a lot. I have quite a few boardsets laying around here and there, and I always seem to be faced w...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS (aka What did you do today?)

I wish I had RAB's type of day, but with a wife and 3 kids, 2 dogs (and both not doing so hot), and friends needing some help, time is a luxury I don't have much of. LOL So Murrsky showed up today with a pinball that has been giving him grief, and a surprise for me, a cool-as-hell cocktail cab! Moni...

Re: gridiron

Status report! I picked up the Gridiron on Friday, and Murrsky dropped by today to drop off a cab for me (YAY!) and a pin for repair, and he took the Gridiron to Ottawa to Williams Fan's place. It should be Toronto-bound next weekend!

Another successful MAACA relay so far!!

Re: WTB: 19" monitors (2-3)

I have one in a cab I just got. Burn-in is minimal, but it doesn't work. It is in a cocktail cab. Free if someone gets it. It is an electrohome G07. I don't need it.

And so yet passes another busy day. The baseball cab got it's final sand and first coat of primer. Did a video but I am not happy with it. Refilming will take place tomorrow, before picking up the Gridiron at RAB's and beginning a well-deserved long weekend!

Hey Wacky Barake.... just a suggestion... since we are doing teams of 4, maybe you should let one more person in, make it 36. Makes for 9 teams of 4. Just sayin'. ;) How about 35 + RAB ? :lol: :FP: To hell with that Wacky Barake clown, I will take his place at the meeting. So yes Sparkles, we will ...
