Worked 6 hours last night on a friends Williams The Getaway. Got his playfield lights working and cleaned the whole game.
Should have taken some photos. Looks really nice now.

I cleaned Missile Command and Wizard of Wor, worked on a Power Play I am finishing up, replaced the power supply board on my Dolly Parton, drove to Azatotht's to pick up Alien Poker, then drove to Hawkesbury to drop it off at Chris Silver's, and diagnosed the wiring on an Aspen.

Fun little game!

Off we go for another day of fixing shit. I will probably do another trip to Chris' place to give me more prep room...
Now playing in Sparky's Power Station: Way too much shit...

Started packing up the arcade for Pincon! Woo!

Edit: Ahh, the satisfaction of coming across that huge bag of ratchet straps throughout the year & thinking "yeah, all in one place - I got this!"
Then the inevitable despair when you CAN'T FIND THE &#^#$**@ THING WHEN YOU NEED IT. :FP:

Maybe I'll just use duct tape. I swear that I had some right here a moment ago...

Grabbed a Flash Gordon......the pin I always used to say that "If I ever own a pinball machine, it'll be Flash Gordon ".

Great price and almost no issues....

Congrats! ... but a tough game!

Bought one in 2010 and it kicked both my son's and my a$$. Sold it! ... and regretted instantly. Bought another two years later and it isn't going anywhere.

Today, had an excellent game on my very first pin (April 2009): 7,896,190 !?

Love the flow, the music, and challenge. Simple but very rewarding, especially when the beacon is going! Great game.

Sold a pin... stings a bit. But more to go. One down, heading to Ontario.

Just have to figure out which is next. Not much time to do so. Back from Quebec, and now off to Newfoundland. After that, Toronto. Milwaukee. Halifax.

No time for pinball anymore.
