Faut que je m'achete une maison avec un sous sol comme ca, c'est plus "cozy" que ce que je vie c'est jours ci.
J'aime ca des sous sol comme ca, a demi fini et chalereux quand même, juste une place pour être tranquille et entourer de lumière qui clignote discrètement et des machine qui ne parle pas. :?

Beautiful set up J.F. Je te gage que tu a un feeling de paix quand tu descend dans ta cave le soir. And that is one of the best feelings in the world.

Merci pour les photos,

Thanks everyone for the nice comments about my arcade. Sorry for not replying to any of your inquiries. I took a very long break from the forum. :oops: I'm back for awhile now. I sorta forgot about this post. :FP:

The arcade is very cozy. The Gambling machines are 1951 Williams Spark Plugs, 1954 Bally Surf-Club, 1975 Bally Miss Universe, 1974 Bally Super Wall Street.
I did try to sell my Midway Space Gun a few years back, didn't get any good offers. I have it since 2001.
The table tennis game works with huge boxy remote controls. The game itself is a mix of EM and solid state technology. There's a very fancy board to drive a variable speed motor. I could publish a detailed post about the workings of the table tennis if there's any interest.

Ahhh such a cool arcade!
So for that Table Tennis game, is it similar to the EM dart games?

Do EM bingo machines disconnect the head from body as easily as other EM machines?
What do you guesstimate the typical bingo HEAD weighs?
What is hidden by the blanket, to the right of your Surf-club? ;)
What year is the Booz Barometer skill game from?

cool 2 pachinkos, as well!

The Table Tennis game is very similar to a Midway Bulls Eye. It's all a question of correct timing to press a button on the remote.

EM Bally Bingo machine heads bolt to the body and connect via Jones plugs. The heads are really heavy (I never weighed one actually) and it's awkward to bolt the head because a big part of the weight is on the back door that you must open first to bolt the head. :x Two + person operation for sure.

The hidden thing under the blanket is a 1940 Gottlieb Score Card pinball. A future project that's on the back burner (way back), I might eventually try to trade it for something else.

Booz-Barometer is from the late 50's. Best guess I have based on the net.

Beautiful collections of varied oddities and gambling devices J.F.

Older commercially outdated coin op machines still turn my crank after so many years. The engineering and the gimmicks to get around the law provide room for the imagination of certain hard core collectors who have the patience to explore these devices from the inside out. My experience is that you always end up finding something odd (technical or other wise) to surprise you, and without much stuff on the interent about how these devices were deployed, your imagination can be free to specualte. Your collection speaks volumes.

I had a bulls eye too. Sold it a few years ago. Funny Game. Press the button, hold it and release. I use to love the hand and dart animation.

Midway, in their design, did provide connectors to use wired controllers instead of wireless ones.

When I leave the Table tennis on with credits on it. It sometimes mysteriously starts by itself. It got me thinking... maybe someone's automatic garage door in my neighborhood starts opening and closing by itself when I play with the remotes. Probably not :lol:

Lineup update: Twin Win. To me, the most interesting feature of this game is that you can score laps for your opponent at any time if you hit the wrong target. It's the Yellow Stig Vs. The Green Stig!

I had the pleasure of spending an hour down in his arcade tonight and wow, is it a thing of beauty! SO MANY cool machines, including things I've never had the pleasure of playing before, like numerous types of bingo machines, a great EM gun game, table tennis EM wall mounted machine, etc. And of course many classic EM pins, most of which I'd never played before. And all playing ridiculously well!

Highlights for me were the mind-bogglingly complex Carnival Queen, Flip Flop, and Super Soccer. And so many little things I barely even examined.
