  3. Fully working Addams Family. Not the best condition but far from the worst. Pros: Heaps and heaps of mods (I’ve removed the tv as it wasn't working. Happy to leave to go with the machine but understand it's not working). See pics for all mods Cabinet is solid but base needs replacing (although its not falling out) Boards, display, translite are all very good. No battery damage on mpu or resets Playfield is better than many I've seen All coils and switches work, plays fine Cons: Base of cabinet needs replacing – if you want to, not required – it just shows the moisture damageVery slight moisture damage in one patch on back of headbox Playfield mansion decal lifting very slightly at top – dab of glue should fix that Poor paint job on rails, lockdown and legs. Suggest restore back to original or custom powder coat 3 flasher sockets missing from topper – there is custom blue lighting up there Rubbers needs replacing and old residue from polish needs cleaning (I think someone must have polished and never buffed it off properly) – easily removed, I’ve cleaned some quickly. Shooter rod needs new spring - can only just get past swamp entry So with all of that, I think its probably better than most ‘as is’ condition Addams, particularly with the mods. Its absolutely playable as is, and plenty would be happy with that with no need to do anything. I’m in Townsville, Bill knows me and my place well for transport, or I’d be happy to wrap and pallet and drop at a transport depot. Also happy to send you as many pictures as anyone would like, or video call and run through the machine. Also very happy to swap for a Rush with cash adjustment depending on model or consider payment in cryptocurrency. $12 300

  4. Thought I'd update some pics of the aeros now they are both functional! Of course, it couldn't have been possible without @DRAGONKZ this dude literally makes dreams come true 😁😁😁 And to line up with Shredder's Revenge, I had a gaming session with the original 1989 game and the new game the other night.. Kids and I had a good go 🙂

  5. Selling on behalf of a mate. This is truly one for the collectors. It is a rare prototype machine with a plastic playfield Bally had plans on making but went back to wood as it was too expensive to make. It is a shame they didnt stay with it as there is no wear and the colours are so bright. It presents so well in beautiful original condition with everything looking like it just came off the production line. If you want any more pictures or want to come and inspect please let me know. Pickup from Bellbird Park Qld or can deliver local for a fee. Happy to work with interstate buyers also $7000

  8. 1,129,044 Rolled the score plus 129,044 Kinda frustrating really. I'm chasing an old score of 1,251,420 I submitted years ago from the "bad old days of corrupt TG" and for the moment keep coming up short. One of many scores in my ongoing quest to either beat or re-submit as many of my old scores as possible under the current adjudication system. DKjr is another one on that list for what it's worth.

  9. Well here it is in all its glory - fully working and moved into the games room. My son redid the side graphic art and it has come out really good IMO. I had some assistance in getting the board repaired - I wont mention who helped as he doesn't want to be bombarded with requests for help but if your desperate in the future reach out to me and I will pass the name / number along. Suffice to say that the board required major surgery and given we didn't have any schematics for this version of the game it was a gigantic task. I cant thank him enough. The rest was up to me - filling, painting, chroming, etc. Here is a list of what was done: - Cabinet filled, sanded and painted - Steering wheel polished and leather coated - Old decals photographed, touched up (Photoshop) and new decals printed/adhered - New shifter knob and shifter cover chromed - Replaced one stuffed panel (The one with the coin door) - Coin Doors restored, filled, painted, polished, etc. - Main board repaired, Steering opto board repaired - Light added to marquee Thanks to all that helped and watched this thread

  10. A couple, both age 78, went to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asked, "What can I do for you?" The man said, "Will you watch us have sex?" The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed. When the couple finished, the doctor said, "There's nothing wrong with the way you have sex," and charged them $50. This happened several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have sex with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave. Finally, the doctor asked, "Just exactly what are you trying to find out?" "We're not trying to find out anything," the husband replied. "She's married and we can't go to her house. I'm married and we can't go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $90. The Hilton charges $108. We do it here for $50...and I get $43 back from Medicare.

  12. Yeah the pool area is all done now and I am really happy with how it tuned out. The landscapers really took their time to map it all out and get the tiles in and symmetrical. It is a good time to get a pool as my boys are 3 and 8, so there will be many more years for them to enjoy it. So I had my back surgery on Thursday this week and am on the mend. It was a microdiscectomy and the surgeon said that the herniated part of the disc was like a rock! It had been herniated for so long that it had begun to calcify, so getting it removed was great. No more pressure on the nerve and instant pain relief. Just recovering from the surgery but should be back to normal in a couple of weeks. I was able to get most of the cladding on last week but we are now waiting for the window company to fix one of the windows they stuffed up. We paid in full for all of our windows in December last year and when we went to install them a few weeks ago we realised that they had put the flashing on the inside and the reveal on the outside... They also stuffed up the bi-fold door. It opens to the wrong side, and there is no way of locking it from the outside... So pretty pointless. Have spent the last two weeks trying to get in contact with someone from Trend windows but of course they are all too busy (now that they have our money) I have since heard horror stories about this company and had another look through their google reviews and have heard a lot of similar stories to ours. The windows are actually good quality, its just the after sales support that is lacking. I also had a bit of an accident when I was installing the cladding. Managed to drill through a bit of my finger when I was putting the cladding on. Turned into a bit of a crime scene 🙂 So it has been all up to my wife to continue on with the work. Everything takes a lot longer than you expect when you are doing it yourself. Finishing touches on the front cladding. Tricky getting the angles all done. Next step is building the landing outside of the bifold doors and some stairs off to the side. The glass pool fence will come out from the studio and follow the edge of the pavers around the pool and join up with the house on the other side. We have our pool filter and equipment in the storage room accessible from the pool area. We are going to put a storage room that is accessible from inside the studio above that room. We did a little bit of a clean up inside and put in some shelves for all of our tools. Will also need to look at buying another driver as our current one dropped off the a-frame and into the pool! Sat it in a container of rice but I don't think it helped. Battery gone 😞 I might start on painting next week if my back allows it. My plumber has marked out where everything is going and will rough in next week. Sparky is also going to come back in a couple of weeks too. So its all moving ahead. Can't wait for it to be done. Hopefully will be ready for summer!

  14. At this stage it looks like I’ll just grab another 5 x 43cm ones, so will have 1-2 spare from the batch. The item cost per chair in Japan is still close to what I paid before, but the unknown is the shipping aspect as there are 3 lots involved. The last 5 ended up approx $200 per stool all up landed to Sydney… so I’d say factor in $220-$250 per stool, and if it’s less than that’s great! They will likely take 4-6 months to get here, and I’m not taking $$ up front. Once they arrive I’ll message the people who expressed interest and what ever is left over will be publicly listed 👍

  24. A 5-year girl went to visit here grandmother one day. She played with her dolls as grandma dusted the furniture. At one point, she looked up and asked, “Grandma, how come you don’t have a boyfriend? “ Grandma replied, “My TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The TV evangelists keep me company and make me feel so good. The comedies make me laugh. I’m so happy with my TV as my boyfriend.” Grandma turned on her TV and the picture was horrible. She started adjusting the knobs trying to get the picture in focus. Frustrated, she started hitting the back of the TV hoping to fix the problem. Just then, the little girl heard the doorbell ring so she hurried to open the front door. When she opened the door, there stood Grandma’s minister. The minister said, “Hello young lady, is your Grandma home? The little girl replied, “Yeah, she’s in the bedroom bangin’ her boyfriend!”

  25. I'm sure those who have been keeping a close eye on my cabs know I have a silly theme of having pairs! Just because this cab is pretty rare in Australia, is not an excuse! About a month ago, I got delivery of another Aero City - once again thanks to @DRAGONKZ! This time, this was imported from Japan and probably cost a bit more than I would've liked but it's the price you pay for wanting pairs She traveled from Japan, to Melbourne to Sydney before arriving like this on my driveway After unboxing the cab and doing the initial inspection, I can say 100% that this cab is nowhere near the condition of the first one. I'm actually amazed at how good the first one was. The condition of this second one is how I expected a cab from 1988 to be really so there's no real big surprises there. The one thing I was really hoping not to have was a burnt screen, but again, this is a 1988 cab that's been in circulation, so enter Rygar burn in Inspecting the wiring was fun... I refused to turn the cab on until I had probed everything and made sure things were wired to where they were supposed to be. Here's the nice little rats nest The control panel itself was in decent condition, however, the shell of it is plastic and not original. As you can see this one is "centred" versus the first one which is "offset to the left". The original is with the offset, so I have purchased the outer part off yaton, but still need the metal plate to mount the cp on - this will come in time. Once the wiring was confirmed, I was confident to plug her in and voila! Missing the red channel In my experience with a colour going out, it's been due to a cold solder joint on the neck board, as such, I quickly inspected the neck board and couldn't really find any cold solder joints, so I moved to something else. I noticed when I gave the cab a bump, the red would come in and out, so I secured the RGB signals tighter on the harness and that seemed to have worked. I didn't reflow anything as of yet, but I have all three colours at all times now It wouldn't be a CRT cab without in my house without this game being loaded! The next stage was to move a few things around to try and have them next to each other so now, I finally have both of them turned on!! The Aero City is a great size cab with a 26" monitor, but this second one could definitely use a new tube and I'm hoping to have one in the next few months thanks to @namastepat. The cab is definitely old, but ever since watching Hi-Score Girl, I've been wanting Aero's so it's finally good to have them both. There's a few patchy areas on this second Aero, but I'm not going for a full restore. I will embrace the war wounds and enjoy playing the games on them. The only other thing I need to do is really buff out the marquee, purchase some 1p control panels and call it a day.

  28. For anyone who likes to protect their lane switch area when it involves a ball drop on to it, there's an alternative to Cliffy's (love Cliff's stuff and Mantis for that matter) metal protectors that I've just fitted to my new game. https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1326-ninjacamp-mods/06754-lane-rollover-switch-protectors-42mm Made from TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) material similar to a phone case, it's going to have some slightly forgiving qualities with impacts. It's also available in various colours, and they are simple interference fit to stay in place so no adhesive required. I guess that means at some point you can flip them around if they do show signs of wear. I'm really impressed with their scoop protectors and other bits they've built for Rush. It all needs the test of time I guess but they are looking good so far. Go NinjaCamp!

  31. Never did get a Blue... I ended up with a batch of 40 (non working) XBoxes from a games place that couldn't fix them. Worked out around $15 each so plenty to play with repair and sell. Here's a couple of family machines I made...(It may inspire you 😉) Otherwise some may find it interesting.... My eldest sons machine. I had just cleared the army camo paint job a day earlier and hadn't built it up yet. It ended up being my first 500Gb sata HDD machine and that let me go on to using 1 and 2TB sata HDDs in Xboxes. Xboxes are normally IDE hard drives so an adapter was required. Tortoise's name was Peter Sam....(T the Tank Engine) I found the 3rd and 4th ports were never getting used, (multigame you just grab another machine and TV, connect on the LAN network and your playing the same game anyway)....so how about a clock with alarm that can turn on the Xbox in place of the unused 3rd and 4th port? Not using the DVDrive any longer so re-wrote the bios so it would think it didn't need one any longer.... This board has a different power supply fitted. This machine runs on 12volts, (car battery power), and was used for years in a stock Xbox case down the farm where we have no mains power with a 2Tb sata Hdd loaded with movies, music videos and games for the boys.... Before the different power supply, this was common down the farm..... Anyway, stick with it. If yours is softmodded I would go the extra step TSOPing it. Softmods have a habit of corruption where as TSOPs, once done, not very likely in fact I never heard of one becoming corrupted.

  38. Best way to buy on Ebay is to set an alarm on your phone and bid the amount you are willing to pay in the last few seconds. If you get it great, if not that just means someone was willing to pay more than you. Shill bidding is all over Ebay, would not be surprised to see these come up again with a "buyer didn't pay" comment. He does have some great titles though and it will be interesting to see what they go for.

  43. So have had another bit of a setback with this build. A couple of weeks ago my father-in-law fell off a ladder from about 4m high and landed on the yellow-tongue flooring and put a big hole in it. I think the floor was able to break his fall a little bit. If he had fallen straight onto a joist it might have been a lot worse. Also if he had fallen onto his head or landed on something else... So I think he was pretty fortunate to only break 7 RIBS! He was reaching across with an angle grinder to cut a piece of metal and lost his balance. The decision to try and reach out from the ladder instead of getting down and moving it a metre and climbing back up 😞 I think everyone would have a similar story to tell. Falls are the biggest cause of injury on job sites. We are so thankful that it wasn't worse. I was with my sons at their soccer match and so didn't see it happen. My wife was there and saw her 82 year old father falling in slow motion. Said he let out a groan that she had never heard before. He is a very strong man with a very high pain threshold. He kept saying he was fine and she had him doing big deep breaths that he was able to do with no issues. He wanted to drive himself home but she took him straight to the hospital. He had no internal injuries which was great, but a couple of ribs were fractured in multiple positions. Speaking of his high pain threshold, a few years ago he cut the tendons in his forearm with an angle grinder (he really should lay off the angle grinders I think 🙂 ) and when he went to the hospital they said they would need to perform surgery on his arm. He was disappointed that he wasn't able to have a local anaesthetic so that he could watch the surgeon perform the operation. Even with his 7 broken ribs he has not taken any of the pain medication they have given him... ? So our main worker is out of action for a while now, and we are back to working on the studio on weekends, which has slowed down the progress. However, there IS progress happening! You can see the milk crate covering the hole that was made and the height of the ladder that was fallen off. I have been able to do a few of the jobs around the place (no heavy lifting) but as I have been working from home part-time I have been able to do some of the easier things. Adding the bracing to the rafters, installing the roof battens and roof sarking. We got the roof done on Tuesday last week. Its very hard to find people to come and help on work days 🙂 Had my brother come around on his lunch break and my wife's friend is between jobs so she was able to come and help too. Got the roof put on in a couple of hours and then the wall wrap was able to be installed the same week. So we are pretty much water tight now. We have installed 3 of the 5 windows, but will need help with the 2 bigger windows and the double door, which will be happening tomorrow. We have a big L shaped window going on the back wall that is quite heavy and will need some help installing. The wall it is sitting on is quite wobbly so we will need to put some bracing on there I think. We have had the landscapers around Thursday and Friday this week working on the pavers. We have Arctic Grey pavers from Lithic and they are looking really good. The guys have been doing a great job with it. They are almost finished so the pool area will be done on Monday next week and then we will work on putting the cladding on. So we have the 3x3m room that will be set aside for pinball and another 5x4m room that will be the main studio area. I am hoping it will all be a pinball studio at some stage 🙂 haha. I think ill need to get my boys a bit more interested in pinball in order for that to happen. I have sold my Baywatch pinball machine to a nice guy from Perth to help pay for the renovation costs and will be hopefully dropping it off at the depot in Sydney on Monday. It was meant to be dropped off Monday this week but when my wife got to Ken's place they found that the springs under one side of the trailer had come loose from the bracket and it needs to be repaired. This is the 3rd time I have had to sell my pinball machines in order to do renovations for my house. The first time about 5 years ago, I sold Whitewater, Demo Man and Galaxy for $8000! That helped pay for the kitchen in the new house. The Baywatch is going to pay for the plumber this time 🙂 So we are slowly getting there. There is no rush, but its good to have it getting closer to completion. We will get the outside done and then we will need to do a bit more saving to furnish inside... Or we could use the equity to borrow some more money from the bank. I think that's what I will need to do if I ever want to buy any more pinball machines haha.
