I finished 5 shooter rods, painted 5 Freddy gloves, started to cast more Freddy gloves, cast more shooter rods, ordered more blank shooters from PBL, painted some TZ pyramid mods and fixed a problem with the drop target on my RFM. :)

I will be happy with what I will end up with. 3 classic Sterns, Space Shuttle, Andromeda and 1 EM, along with the MultiWilliams. I do have a Robotron cocktail as well but that is a longterm project.

Fixed the top kicker on my ToM (It was a bad new sleeve :roll: ) I figured this out after swapping out driver boards :x thinking this was a power issue.
Lubed up JM hand gears and slider rod since it was binding up. All my machines are happy now. no Bong bong bong when I flick the switch :P .

Fixed the problem in the far right saucer on my Apollo 13, Turns out a piece of target foam got in there when I shopped it the other day, caused the ball to sit up to high in the saucer to trip the switch.
Thanks, Dave

Here are games I would like to acquire this year, or sometime...

I think it's time to drop it in the cab. For what is left (6 #8 screws) I'll put them in while it's in the cab.

and it's very nice home due to some fine work on the cab by Mulligan. New side rails, side art, shooter rods, legs, protectors etc.

Plug it in. Other than reversing the lines to the left ramp sign light everything appears to be fine on initial power up.

Replaced the leg brackets on my DM, since the old ones were stripped. Also replaced the broken pop bumper bracket and replaced the missing head and coin door locks. 4 of 6 machines now have legs on them-hoping to finish tetrising the basement sometime today.

Tried to research where four little plastics go that came with the repop set. Still no clue after looking at IPBD and seeing more than one variation. Troubleshot the left ramp light.... apparently if you wait long enough it will flash in the attract mode. Problem found..... just wait for it to come on...

There are some interesting people on this board.

As you probably know, today was family day in Canada, and president's day in the U.S., but what many members may not know is that most people were at work in Quebec today because we don't have families or presidents here apparently. See Sparky's post above, as if he were an example or something :? ) Go home dude it's past 9 PM don't you know it's family day!

So the phones were a tad more quiet today so I got to spend more time talking with some MAACA members about their recent purchases and what parts they need from PBR and Marco. I also helped two members get their machines working over the phone, a Buccaneer for Uncleboo and a Skateball for Paulxxx. Started building the PBR order which we are going to receive before the MPL night this week, answered some PMs about some requests and served a few operators at the counter and over the phone. Started repairing a Flash Gordon that came in for service which is suffering from a switch matrix hassle but I haven't found the culprit yet, and finished tuning up a now clean GTB Bronco we placed in the showroom for sale next to the refurbed South Park & the new STERNS. It looks kind of neat, and odd seeing an EM in the showroom.

That's a beauty.

I was looking for a bowler or shuffle alley for you and/or Sparky and found a WLL EM Marquee shuffle alley if you want it Pascal. One operator I know said he had some old games he would be "willing" to sell, (read as "if the price is right") and that was one of them.

I have to pass the Catacomb that was for sale from Sylvain... I know I will regret it later, but for now I can afford it!

So today it's a bad pinball day for me. :(

Got CV and Whitewater levelled and working. Had to mess around with the ringmaster a little to get it to stop trapping the ball on the edge, since it sat a little low on the "mid" position. Even though both games recommend a 6.5-7 degree pitch, CV had to come way down from almost 9 degrees, and Whitewater had to come almost all the way up at the back to get close to 7. Played a couple of test games on each, then needed to get some sleep. Hoping to get the other 4 games going tonight.

Put a credit buton inside the flight 2000, clean all the playfield glasses for the MPL meeting, Level the Abracadabra. Good to have a meeting at home, It's make you move your ass and be prepared for a crazy evening with all the pins work in the same time. For now everything is 100% working!
