congrats on your first sale, tell the new guy about pacislodb . Maybe he will buy more once the addiction sets in!
I edited your first post with Youtube link to point to your new video.
Where are you located? maybe I could have my trucker buddy stop in and buy a couple of your remaining machines.

Forest, thanks for that video. the closest thing to a real arcade around here is Craigs cruisers, they do have a load of games. I was disappointed in the condition of the pinball machines, they were poorly maintained. They needed to have better repair tech's IMHO. the best arcade I have been to for ...

Now we need an American to film a tour of the FunSpot and narrate it in English.
Any volunteers?

I never heard any reports of hot garages causing paint crazing.

I have had issues with hot and humid conditions making switch's not work.
The machines play different at higher temperatures and humidity, rubber softens more, wood swells. Metal rusts faster.

New SS pinballs don't have the leaf switch's they use micro switch's.
A self repairing pinballer has to have a good soldering station.

Congratulations on finding a pinball! I heard that the ink on the back glass can shrink and peel if allowed to get too cold. I brought my back glass' in for the project pin's just to be safe. Some people claim that spraying Krylon triple thick on the back of the back glass will preserve it. I live i...

Welcome to the forum. It is hard to sell anything without an asking price. I guess $60 for the 1997 machine and $100 for the second. I see you managed to snag an image from the DB for the ad. How about including actual photo's of the machine? inside the machine or a closeup of the reel area. http://...

Pinball do self regulate, we just can't keep bringing them home. What happens when the basement gets full, then the garage, then spare bedrooms, heck you might need a spare house ( you know who you are) :wink: I think the bad girls are these girls grown up. http://mirror1.ipdb.org/images/1248/image-...

I had similar static on one Spin Luck, I cycled the volume switch 6 or more times to bust the crust and it fixed the noise.

That was the "Colorama' spin luck.

I think the cat attack was funny, mine run when I turn mine on.

These do multiply fast. I went from zero to eight in a few months.

Mario does look interesting, do the cars spin when they are hit by the pin balls?

That is a good price on a working machine.

The Aztec looks like a good game and at that price you can re-sell it and not lose if you find another.

i have never seen those before. I have one Em and I like it. Your looking at a single player machine. multiplayer machines are slightly more fun because it allows you to compete against someone. if you always play alone it would not matter . http://mirror1.ipdb.org/images/2648/Backglass.jpg http://w...
