I realized that R.A.B. is correct as usual... (He generally and almost always is.)

The "world" is no longer ours. (despite our parents and whom is in charge now)

That leaves us with "what? my friend"? It is almost time to "go" now. (soon)

The last gambit and the last "big hurrah". Here we come. Interesting...

Jeezus. To sum up 2+ years.

Well, the topic is "today". I dragged a dead Robotron upright out of storage and started sanding it down. Once I have it down to bare clean wood, I will decide what happens to it. Nothing original inside it, other than the bezel.

I also cut some pieces for a custom newly built Galaga cab for World of Warships. Just some inner braces. I had plywood CNC'ed.

When "What did you do today in the hobby" is no longer the real deal and it is about business... This to me sends the "death knell" message that this is no longer a forum of participants, collectors, enthusiasts and friends of 10+ years or more...
Participation has been waning on this site for a very long time. Despite several attempts to revive interest: I find myself at odds with no longer caring to revive anything that no one participates collectively and actively in. It is a problem for me.

I have read every thread here for the entire time I have been a member. I have been a moderator; friend, + participant to all. And yet; today, I no longer feel like posting anymore. I think in general, there is no 2.0 "pour moi". I will leave it all.
Other than access to the 3 novels worth of pinball information here that I have contributed to this site in the last 10+ years or so... I am perhaps relegated to "deliveries" + buying + selling pins and perhaps, submitting minimal content moving on ...

We shall see how this plays out in the next week or so.
I am on events for all of July, but I will check in on Mondays.

Cheers. Salut. Enjoy it all.
All the very best my friends.

Not sure there will be much more soon anymore.

So 'business' has no place on MAACA? Geez, better not tell RAB. And what's this got to do with this particular thread? Why are you spamming the Forum?

I'm no entrepreneur. It's a hobby for me and I definitely haven't made money on pinball.... that said, if there weren't people making a living out of it, there would be no way for me to repair and restore my machines. There'd be no way to get them from one end of Canada to the other. There'd have been no pinball in the first place to enjoy. There would be very few places in Ottawa to play, and fewer pinball shows to show off my hobby collection.

There's more than enough room on MAACA for the people that sink every spare dollar into their passions and for the ones who support them by liberating them of those spare dollars in exchange for parts and playtime.

I think what Warlock is saying is that apart from the buying and selling of machines /parts and the bitching about prices, there’s very little discussion going on in here. I agree.certainly feels like the hobby has been taken over by folks just looking to make a quick buck with no effort. The same douchebaggery we saw with the pandemic and masks, toilet paper, etc. hopefully the pinball supply shortage will end soon and the douchebags will go after some other item in short supply.

However I do see some effort to bring back some tech talk etc, which is a good thing!

100% get it. I left for a while myself as 90% of discussions were about pin values. It got very repetitive. But, funny thing is that I saw the same in the classic car hobby years ago, before I started in pinball. It became all about value.

But now, the "new hot" thing in old cars is to raid a junkyard, and get a piece of crap running. People are eating it up on Youtube. And it is fun.

Same for pinball. I believe we are entering a revival phase. Some have been way ahead of the curve lately like HPR and his vid restorations. Many are now following.

You don't have to spend a fortune in a game to enjoy it. Get a worn out, dead game and fix it up. You enjoy yourself, learn in the process, and in the end, one more machine is out there to enjoy.

So, whether it is a NIB pin, or a long-dead worn out junker, we all just want to press start and see the ball hit the shooter lane, or have the game start on the screen.

We just need to post about it more.

So today i continued (albeit unsuccessfully) to chase down a short in my EM. Was intermittent now unplayable. Can’t score 1000 pts it shorts out. I have ruled out the pf as the short is still there with the pf disconnected.

It’s not a score reel coil (shorts on all 4 players) nor is it the chime unit since it’s electronic sounds and i disconnected that board to be sure.

It’s down to the scoring motor(cab) or the player unit(head). Maybe something for next weekend. I have already gone over the pf and cab switches and relays as part of my restoration. Head was left but the game was playing well up to now.

Busy day,....a scoot to the other side of Toronto to pick up some play things, and then a stop in at DRAPL since the shop I picked these up was 6 minutes from there. Got home, drilled out the locks on the cocktails and to my delight Circa 1933 plays. Missing a drop target that I'll steal from EROS since there's no MPU in it. The slot was just bonus .....
Then I carried on with the backyard makeover.....got the back wall done and my flag up so that makes me happy.

If anyone has a drop target and the funky little rod that holds it in place plus an EROS MPU for sale reasonable I'd dance naked at TARG some night. :FP:

How many years did you work as a CO and never picked up how to rake a wafer lock? I'm going to have to run a how-to seminar for pinheads the next time there's an event!

By the way, it is an excellent product. If interested, it is this seller on Ebay. I was VERY satisfied. VERY well packed, and kept in contact during the whole process.

Backyard looks great but, ummm, if I were in the Guelph area, could I drop by and gab about pin ball? But, more importantly, how deep is the tub? Is it heated?? And do I HAVE to wear my Speedos???

Speedos?? Only if you're a hairy fat European male, otherwise it's shorts.

Well the hot tub is heated but that cold tub isn't. Gab??....heck I'd even let you fix something. 🤪

Well I've progressed (and fixed other issues along the way). Scoring motor fixed and no longer slips (clutch). Player 4 1k reel wouldn't reset but worked fine in game(improperly gapped reel switch). Had partial reset issues now fixed too(broken solder joint on reset relay #1).

The short is definitely in the wire bundles that go to the score reels. By wiggling them a bit the game now works but I can still see all the lights dim when 1000 pts gets scored so the short is still somewhat there, just not enough to prevent the game from working.

Also found another issue while test playing. Player 4 does not advance the 100,000 reel when the 10,000 reel advances from 9 to 0 but does advance when I trigger the 100k relay. It's not the "9" switch on the 10,000 reel that's the problem.

Use Minwax Wood Hardener on old chip board! Works miracles! It soaks in the wood and then hardens. Like a very thin epoxy. I SWEAR by it on old cabs.
