Already packed for the parts table as is is a very popular item at the show. I usually bring 50 and they sell out, will bring more this year.

Price is 3.00 each I believe, maybe less.

A philosophy of doing shall rule until the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman friend from sighing, there will then only be memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of occurrences to recall come hell or calm tides.

In real life I always preferred exceptional qualities in any normal state of affairs. But alas, so many have suddenly become exceptional via a world wide web of self-promotion upheld by the new dumb that it has made the quest for something truly exceptional much more difficult to notice.

You and I and a few others know what these spring washers actually are for and what their purpose is.

I will bring some for sure, but I will sell them just for the folks who can tell me what they actually do. :lol:

LINKS_LINKS_LINKS

Memory can be a great tool. And when used properly, it can colour your present like nothing else. That is exactly what happened to me this morning at work as I was sorting out some parts I found. I gradually became linked to another time.

Back in late 2015, at the age of 52 I was called a pinball geek for the very first time in my life. Never had anyone called me that before, ever. I had been in pinball neck deep since the age of 15 but was never called a geek in relation to it. Pinball was just cool whether you were a hardcore player, a tech or someone who moved them around. Most of us played and socialized and frequented the arcades looking for the latest pins that would usually grace the entrance to the amusement halls.

The person who called me a pinball geek in that winter of 2015 had obviously never lived the heyday of the smokey arcades when the machines were new and tight. She was now only poised to live the resurrgence of pinball in public locations for her first time with the North Star opening a few months later in January of 2016. She had likely never played a real machine before.

We were walking to the shop at the time and I was talking about the importance of not neglecting plunger and link wear as a cause for sluggish play. Stressing that a tight link is often overlooked. You lose some of the quick action when bumpers and flippers are soft. That is when she called me a geek, after I made the that statement about soft bumpers and flippers. I started to laugh like a madman at what she called me and I stopped dead in my tracks. She seemed a bit taken aback by my reatcion while eyeing me curiously as I crouched over from laughter. Had I become a geek ? Was trying to make old machines play like they did when they were new a sign of approaching geekhood ? Is being down to the nitty gritty of the details of an experience what defines a geek ? I hope not, that would be sad in a modern sort of way.

"I'll buy that for a dollar !" (Memories not included)

I can only provide those links, and if sorting out N.O.S. plunger links makes me feel good, well maybe I have become a parts geek. Well then, that's OK with me 'cause I sure as shit don't play pinball these days.

Stumbling on Flybacks

One of my buddies is fixing a D9200 Wells-Gardner digital monitor (one of the last CRTs from Wells-Gardner) and asked if Alouette had some flybacks left over for this multi-mode 27" beast. I remember these monitors from when they came out, a sort of hybrid between the old CRT chasis and the new digital processor chasis which could deal with multiple resolutions. It was definitely a different beast and being used in many new video games, especially driving games.

So fast forward to finding a box of flybacks (mostly for Wells-Gardner monitors) at Alouette, didin't find one for the D9200, but did find a bunch of new ones for older models. Even found two brand new flybacks for 19" MONITORS without the Wells Gardner part number structure we have below for the later flybacks. The 2 that are left are N.O.S. and have a component I am not familiar with that is connented to the suction cup going to the tube. I believe these "blocks" were attached to the metal frame of the tube. Maybe someone here can edify this claim from my memory and what they are for.

These older flybacks are 50$ each as opposed to the newer ones listed below which are all priced to sell at 35 bones each.

After more digging I found a bunch of pots and other parts that are all Wells-Gardner OEM parts which I now know for sure were from Laniel Automatic's parts dept. which were left over when they closed for good after almost 70 years in business on Feb.22, 2001. So Alouette must have bought all this WGM stuff then.
