I've started putting the cabinet back together for my BSD #2. RadCals installed and looking good. Picked up a few carriage bolts from pinballmedics.ca, sure is handy to have a parts supplier 10 minutes away.

I found in my Amazon order history that I ordered a roll of ground braid in February, can't find it. Ordered another one.
Continued hunting today, found TWO rolls of ground braid. Third incoming. I'll try to not forget where I put them this time!

Final coat of 2K clear should be laid on the playfield this weekend.

Sold 2 more pins. Out the door tonight or this weekend.

I have to go through my list. Down to 32 machines. I would like to go down to 25 but at this point it's like pulling a bandaid. LOL

I visited Gottlieb Rob's new pinball repair shop at 923 Girouard in Montreal last night. It is perfect!!! Nice open shop, plenty of display space... will be sweet!

Dropped off 2 pins, and hit traffic (of course) on the way back.

Now... I need to further look at my list of machines to see what can be reduced...

I tend to create my own problems. I am like my dog... I get distracted by shit and forget the golden rule in regards to tools and parts:
OCD.jpg
Funny enough, my wife is slightly OCD... hence why she hasn't stepped foot in my shop or gameroom in 12 years. LOL

So, hence... my home has become a black hole for tape measures, levels, Sharpies, #2 philips screwdrivers and 10mm sockets.

:FP:

Today is cleanup day.... or, as I call it, "Oh-Shit-That's-Where-I-Left-That-Damn-Thing Day".

By the end of the day, I expect to find 8 tape measures.
