    Hi all. Pulled the trigger on joining because I am keen to better my knowledge of arcade, pinball and jukebox repair. With little budget to afford the high end machines, I have been lucky to pick up a few projects to have fun with. One EM pinball found in the local paper led to a vertical screen lowboy, which led to an AMI jukebox and finished with a horizontal screen lowboy. All are very original, which was the main appeal to buying them and all purchased over a space of many years. I am in the process of cleaning them up, keeping them original but still adding a few more games (like the ones I remember playing at the local skate rink as a kid).
    Looking forward to being here and having a bit of fun, getting flamed for any mistakes I make and offering any advice I may be able to. It's been a while since I have been on any forums, so go gentle on me.

    Cheers,
    Al.

                  Nice one, I have a original lowboy which I am making into a dedicated 1942 and waiting for a second cab to come up so I can make into a dedicated Yie Ar Kung Fu or Ghost and Goblins if I come across a working PCB. (have the 1942 and Yie Ar PCBs already)

                  Look forward to some pics from you, Welcome.

                      Thanks all. My EM is a 1976 Chicago Coin Red Barron and this will be the year that she'll be back up and running 100% (but then again I have been saying that for a decade)

                        lowboy has all the wiring there, game PCB was Truxton but that has now been set aside and a 60 in 1 JAMMA box plugged in. PCB for Truxton has some issues, I am not familiar with the game but you quickly get to a point when something randomly kills you although nothing of note is on the game. I am saving that for a time when I want to expand my PCB soldering and troubleshooting skills.

                          Latest lowboy is some kind of poker machine. I am keen to box up all of those parts and wire it over to something like the Pandora's Box DX JAMMA. I am having a replacement controller mount being fabbed up at a local sheet metal bender, I will punch holes into it and plug into the existing wiring harness allowing for fast change back to original. CRT has a little screen burn and I hope this does not cause issues for me in the future. I do have an old CRT TV the correct size that I may farm out the tube from. At this stage I am just learning the basics, doing the typical ROM fit out but still trying to be respectful to the original machine (and being able to return it to an original state)

                            Jukebox is an amazing little AMI RI-1 from the mid 70's. Loaded full of 45's and they threw in a shoe box of another 60 or 70 more. All working apart from a few dramas of transporting it (now fixed) where I dislodged the tonearm and embedded it into the full carousel. Amp is a little crusty from caps that have dropped their guts and the thing hasn't been cleaned or serviced in decade, but it'll load and play records. That's all I need at the moment51100595824_eab9c23cc1_c.jpg

                            I have purchased the manual now so I will have all the service guides and I am hand washing the crust off each record in the collection. Then I can focus on amp repairs and getting the speakers sounding their best.
