If Pizzadude is who I think it is (chris?) the Vpin is decked out and is a great example of the potential of Virtual pinball!



Yeah, thats me. I forgot to call about the knocker though. It would have been nice to put one..


If the wiring harness is there, we can install it on the spot, good sir.


It’s not a harness really. I need no control board. Basically just need the knocker assembly, wire it to the 12v, run a ground from a existing board and change a setting.

I did order the Knocker from Robert, it will be here friday :) will take a couple minutes to install

Anyone that brings a machine, if you spot me, grab me and we'll install plastic protector washers together into your game. Free! I have lots! The earlier the better.

Very cool, thanks.

I would be interested in purchasing a bunch more for my games as well as few friend's collections.

Getting close!

Edit: only bringing joker poker now as road kings has gone to a really cool couple as their first pin.
( planting the pinball seeds ).

Nicely done Shane. Move it forward.
Will bring you an almost rare Williams...
And take that Joker Poker home in return.
Fun times ahead and Sparky and RAB will oversee...

Lots of work ahead preparing for the OPGS, but you know what, that's OK. Been a pretty wild and busy August and September so far. Historical hands on Pinball seminar at North Star, MPL 10th anniversary party at Alouette and a weekend with the WARLOCK in Toronto fixing pinballs and other games at the Pint and the Bluffs, that was alot of fun, especially trying to keep up with Scott. :D I think I did OK.

And it occurs to me that I have never been a vendor for Alouette at OPGS. Last year was close, but no cigar. All set up and no power. I still managed to sell some parts in the semi darkness, but this year there will be light. The year before that (2017) I was with Player One at the OPGS and pretty unenthused.

So now in 2019 I can push this gig to the hilt. Lots of parts, new and old and a machine or two. One for the historical booth and one for the free play area would be the goal. The prioroiuty remains parts and parts and parts because that is what I like dealing with more than anything else.

So send me your pre-orders and save on shipping, I am ordering from Pinball Resource, Suzo-Happ and Marco this Friday, so get your special parts requests in via PMs or text or e-mail, hell, may as well go crazy and phone me instead at Alouette 514-342-9111 by friday.

Let it roll,

Rob

Between the preorders to R.A.B. and all the parts that will be there to sift through, the OPGS show is my time to stock up on everything I need for all of my winter projects.

Oh and if anyone has any longer wood clamps (like 1-3 feet long) I'm looking to buy some used.

I think that this year's show will be an overall amazing experience. I admit that this is a lot of work, and back and forth coordination when it comes to getting the correct parts people want, and more difficult still is admitting to the impossibility of getting everything absolutely right. The more you do, the more the chances of something going sideways is, but I am trying to keep it all together on my end. I can only imagine what it is like for MadTitan and all those who are contributing (in a big or small way) to making this year's show a success. Keep on truckin' folks.

I think that there will be alot of cool games to play and look at, lots of parts and vendors doing some good business in Ottawa this year.

Saw a fellow pinhead at Timmy's on my break downtown Ottawa today,smiled, said hello. Talked about the show quickly. Got me excited for next weekend.

Then I gets me a text from another pinhead after work confirming some pinshow related stuff.
Got me stoked!!

There are only 2 weekends a year when I tells the wife and family they're on their own, THIS is one of them .
"Yippee kai ai mofo"!!!! ( B. Willis. )


Living in rural Ontario I've only one other local collector/hoarder/pinhead who understands what pinball is, really is, to some.

When I get to a pin show twice a year, almost everyone understands ...........

And that makes me feel very good" ( S. Kordek).

Not certain if this is the right place to ask but will prices be CLEARLY posted on the pins that are for sale this year? I personally find it a pain in the butt trying to find the owner to ask and secondly question why prices are not posted for all to see? Just my 2 cents.

I agree....but not just the ones for sale, the ones that AREN'T for sale also. I remember some had MAACA cards on them that told you exactly what the owner was doing.

Each year I provide registration cards and even go as far as leaving one on every game at the end of the set up day. Typically, if there isnt a sign on it, it isnt for sale.....

I will once again be leaving registration cards on all of the games and hope for the best. Another thing we will try is to leave a list of everything for sale and the owners contact info with Vero at the box office. Beyond that I dunno....

I have pinball shirts dating back 10 years and I will be wearing some retro ones at my booth when I come down. I even have a glow-in-the-dark Big Bang Bar shirt still. I got to get me one of those shirts

Well, the usual inevitable shit is happening again. My wife has gotten second thoughts about going to Ottawa and not so pleased that I would be playing all weekend, so I had to cancel the hotel room. Second, my work booked me a training class (a class I have to teach and prepare for) for Monday the 23rd. So, I will merely be dropping off games on Friday and picking them up on Sunday. No show for me again this year due to my life being a natural disaster. lol

Centigrade 37 will be there for the tournament. I will see for Genesis but it is not looking good for that one now. And I will have Cait's parts, as well as the Major Havoc there for pick up (thanks to Heisenberg).

Sorry guys. My life is a shit show with little free time anymore.

Looking forward to the show.
