Re: EM help. Surfer

That did the trick! One of the make/break switches was off by a hair. A literal hair! Fickle friggin' relay! I am able to start a game - Thank you! Now it seems I have a pop bumper locking on. Center pop. Locks on as soon as the ball ejects into the shooter lane. I have cleaned the contacts and veri...

Re: EM help. Surfer

So let me get this straight in my head. The relay pulls in but the machince keeps cycling? Then you give the relay a little help and the game finishes the cycle the ball pops out and you play pinball. You have cleaned the contacts and you can see them closing. Yes, this is exactly right. At this po...

Tim's First EM Journey. Fixing a Gottlieb Surfer.

Hi guys, I need a hand with fixing this pin. I am very close but I'm having issues with the Ax relay. When I start a game the score motor starts spinning nonstop (it's taken quite a bit of research and learning to get it this far). Ax pulls in but nothing happens. The score motor just keeps spinning...

Re: Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 Early Notice

@R.A.B. Brutal winter is an understatement. I need a new Ax relay for my Surfer and a few other parts. I don't have a complete list compiled yet. Is that a 4 player Surfer (Surf Champ) I spy in your photo? Looks like a nice backglass!

Re: The History of Splatterhouse arcade documentary

This game was the entire reason I bought a TurboGrafx-16 back in the day. It is also the sole reason I re-bought a TurboGrafx-16 ten years ago and it triggered my retro-collecting impulses which led me to frequent the PCEngineFX website which in turn led me to frequent another local video game forum...

Why would anyone say no to this? The only reason you wouldn't put it into TARG is because people would be spunking all over the game from excitement.

Re: [Do you insure your Pinball Machines? b]

My advice would be to go through an insurance broker who acknowledges the value of your possessions and confirms to you in writing that they are covered under your home contents insurance. Agreed. Statements like "add to the content amount" are just tacked on bullshit lines that insurance...

Re: Your Pinball Status 2019

Cool thread Chris. I have room for a massive amount of pins but I'm limited to 3. This is an agreement that I have made with my wife. Currently I'm working on a 'garage' pin although it is technically in my basement. I've been priced out of DMD machines so, my goal is to look at EM's for a bit and l...

I like them. Colours are a plus. Old rubbers look and feel old. They do play differently on the flippers but only a purist is ever going to notice the difference.

I have to agree with cait on this one. I shelled out the $20 (USD I think) for a physical copy of schematics for an EM from PBR and some of it wasn't legible. I've unfolded and folded it less than a dozen times and some of the ink that is on the folds has already worn away. I understand that PBR nee...
