SOLD: 1980 Williams Algar

Post by sylvain »

For Trade of For Sale - 1980 Williams Algar pinball.

- Works well
- Nice PF (not mint), one cracked plastic
- Fairly nice cabinet and artwork/paint (usual dings & scratches).
- OK BG, some scratches & some flaking
- I just added the fuses-before-bridges safety mod.
- Good displays
- Coin chutes currently covered by metal plates (from prior owner)

Update (price adjusted to $800):
- Added the three missing lamp sockets
- re-rubbered
- cleaned PF with Novus 2
- new leg levellers
- new pinball
- manual/schematics included

Looking to trade this machine against one machine from my want list (see my signature below).
Also looking for a nice pair of Accusound AS-6120L speakers, and a few very specific antique radios.

Would adjust +/-$ to make the trade fair to both of us.
If no suitable trade, machine IS available for sale for $800

Can deliver locally (Ottawa).

Please PM if interested.

Thanks !
- Sylvain.

" I still need to add lamp sockets in the pop bumpers (one of the prior owner removed them!).
Will also re-rubber and clean PF later when time permits."

Sparky's suggestion is a good one. I am coming to Ottawa this week. Let me know the status on this machine and if you are looking for a trade or a sale now as a couple weeks have passed. Thanks.

Sylvain has enough :lol: ... so I doubt he's open for trade and time does not affect him either...

Thank you Mrhide & WARLOCK.

I have installed the three missing lamp sockets in the pop bumpers. Nice !
Done about 65% re-rubbering for now - been very busy at the office these days.

Machine is available for sale (unless you have one of the exact trade I am looking for).
I will complete the re-rubbering before the week-end.

Thanks!
