These are not games from the showroom, but buried in the warehouse. They moved some stuff out this week and I was able to see these odd ball video games and the Cat "skill replay " game more easily so I took pics.

Stars Wars Ep.1 - Pinball 2000 has no computer, no monitor and no driver board I believe, does have a populated playfield however. :? I do have a a new translite and half a light saber in parts. :lol:

Found some N.O.S. black grease from Bally and some from Gottlieb inside a Mustang I am working on. These small tubes would come with each new E.M.
Haven't found the William's samples yet.

Very cool. Love finding hidden stuff.
As a contractor I get to demolish things. ( Walls etc)
I find some pretty cool stuff sometimes.
Hidden history.
Few years ago I found a letter which fell through the mail slot and got lost in floorboards of old home.
It was dated '73.
I gave to client who immediately started crying. She explained letter was from her late grandmother to her late sister. She was the only one left of her family and this was the home in which she grew up.
Felt pretty good .
Sorry rab, way off topic here.

Nice story Shane, real sweet and ofcourse no apologies necessary for the post being off topic..

It is not like we got something repetitive to say here everyday on Pinball and Videogame Tech now is it ? It not like we are talking about some new disease warning, like getting zona from being stressed out... there is a vaccine for that I hear and it is very necessary & popular these days.

Well said.

And thanks for the positive vibes everyone on my post about growing up and buying a home. Seems it worked.
RAB...
You're not wrong about the lack of human interaction. I don't even have to meet with lenders, to obtain my mortgage, can sign digitally. Crazy world.
Deals done. We move in in 39 days.

Basement has lots of room for pins. !!
Pool house, once insulated will require more pins.!!!
Backyard has a natatorium which if filled in could house even more pins. !!!!!
Might skip level 3 and go towards 4 immediately.

It's 7:30 and I am here at my desk thinking about lucky we are to have threads like this, even if some of the posts are off topic, at least we have stuff to say that is not the same god-damn thing every morning. It it nighttime accross the pond and in the geek islands as well, so definitely bedtime for bonzo.

All I will say is this...
My brother's keep finding me good parts.
I keep finding machines and good people.
That is more than enough for most of us...

Thank you my friends.
More; sooner or later.

Well, I dropped by today. I need 3 Gtb drop targets for Genesis and 9 Bally "explosion" drop targets for Mystic, but I was there to mostly say hi to the Montreal souldaddy of pinball, and to see if anything was needed for the 30th. Richard greeted me and told me you were on vacay! Good for you!

So, I chatted with Richard and ended up buying a videogame. Lol. So not a total loss.

Catch you when you get back, daddy-o. Or on the flipside... I could use a drink at a bar downtown.

I know I have new blank white Gottlieb drop targets in stock and used Bally explosion drops, but no office booze bottle. :D

Therefore, I plan on doing some down to earth honest drinking and no holds bar talking on Saturday evening with the Warlock after the hands on seminar at the North Star. If you find the time Ian, drop in after 3 pm for a Capersville cocktail and let's play Queen of Hearts like the old men of the past did.

I need 3 Gtb drop targets for Genesis and 9 Bally "explosion" drop targets for Mystic, but I was there to mostly say hi to the Montreal souldaddy of pinball, and to see if anything was needed for the 30th. Richard greeted me and told me you were on vacay! Good for you!

So, I chatted with Richard and ended up buying a videogame. Lol. So not a total loss.

Catch you when you get back, daddy-o. Or on the flipside... I could use a drink at a bar downtown.

Hey are those Stern slingshot arms still available?

I will take a pair if they are.

With the 2019 Ottawa Pinball and Gameroom show, I will be bringing as many odd ball parts and regular sellers to the Alouette booth and tables as I can.

Suggestions are welcome on this thread if you have a match in mind. Post whatever has been difficult for you to find, you never know. Even a shot in the dark can sometimes make the mark.

Posting often will keep this thread active with more relevant and useful information for the community.

God bless fishing and the Ancient Greek Philosophers who taught the modern world abstraction and all it dragged into the house with it.

Yikes !

P.S. @ candianpinballer - part number A-157-1 for the Stern kicker arms. I will bring some to Ottawa for the show.

I believe I also showed the Bally sling shot arms on this thread -- p/n A-3459-1 and I have a bunch of those as well, all N.O.S.

Not sure I have these Mike. Hardware is tricky here at Alouette, they use robertson screws & bolts to fix machines that are missing hardware, so as you can tell, they are not too uptight on originality in the service dept. Sometimes it hurts me and other times I understand that this is an old opertors shop & warehouse in which they run a repair service business for homes and operators (those that are left), not at all a hobby shop during the majority of the week. :lol:

White rubber rings will only be the very common sizes, all the rest is in the pipeline to Ottawa.
