What did I do today in the hobby? I danced.

Why? Because I have the 4-player version of this pinball machine. 8-)

J'ai finalement trouvé une entreprise de zingage électrolytique pas trop loin de chez nous avec des prix raisonnables.

Je vais pouvoir restaurer mes pièces qui on besoin d'un traitement pas mal plus facilement.

Good news.

I must have played that song 1000 times as a DJ in my former life.
I had forgotten about the video, but it seems appropriate currently. Thank you.

I have done little else in my spare time for the last year other than reflect upon and work on this hobby.
Perhaps that indicates a willingness to write about it once again in the not so distant future.

Fixed upper flipper on Flash Gordon and played for a while.

I don't remember when was the last time I turned a pinball machine on.

Time to find a project ?

Drove 3 hours to an auction in the middle of nowhere in Michigan. The plan was to score 3 machines at a good price because it wasn't online and I figured the pinball people would be in Cleveland for that weekend show. Methinks that made it worse, Old Chicago 1300, Bally Wizard and Nip It went for 1200 each.....that's US money, plus taxes and 10%. Machines were unshopped and still full of mouse nests and feces. Those of us there that owned machines just stood around staring at each other going 'whaaaaaaaaaaaat?'
PINS- Target Alpha/ Fire Queen/ Volley/ Tee'd Off/ Rollergames/ Star Trip/ Flip Flop/ Combat/ Flash Gordon/ Capt.Card/Bluenote/ Space Shuttle/Strange Science/Far Out/ Genesis/Bally Circus / Bally Beat The Clock/ Spanish Eyes/ Outer Space/Bronco

RIP- Sinbad/ Supersonic

Took a little drive to a members home with two pins in the van for delivery.
Felt like it was time for a pinballing road trip. It was.
He was kind enough to show us ( me and another hillbilly pinnballer) his collection of pins and arcades. Very cool.
Also got to meet a very sweet bulldog. ( We're a boxer family, two rescues ).
Can't wait to see the Sinbad lit up and shining. The Habs light is your own problem,
go Sens! :roll:

Personally can't wait for the show next weekend,
but I don't get out much. :FP:
There are Some really great people on this forum, I think y'all know who you are. The few I've met have been super welcoming and passionate about pins. This hobby in particular means a lot to me. And judging from some of the basements and garage's I've seen it means a lot to some of you to.

I was reminded today why I started bringing pins home, fun, smiles, nostalgia, pure frickin glee.That's it.
I think I did a good deed today. Not a big one, just a good one.
Perhaps the Pinball Karma gods will for once grant me the knock knock of the ever elusive special this evening on joker poker.
Always room for one more.

Stay classy maaca.
Shane.

I repaired a broken column on my LAH DMD. I soldered a wire from the column resistor to the pad on the glass, replacing that trace on the wide ribbon cable.
Now the real test is to see how long it lasts.
