    RIP Lyman

    I can't believe it . My partner and I were just discussing the next pinball purchase and my choice of Elvira HOH was endorsed with the words " well it's Lyman machine " Next thing I did was turn on the computer and read the sad news . What a shock ! She always said (while playing Bat66 ) I can't marry Lyman but are you allowed to marry one of his machines ?
  2. I'll never be able to cure cancer , pick the winning Lotto numbers or choose the correct female gift . As for the holiday side of it (I don't know Melbourne or Tassie ) is to stay in the Fanciest 5star Hotel at least 2 nights , expensive Dining , do a High Tea , Champagne Breakfast (if applicable ) I'm blessed , apparently The best gift i gave was a set of bathroom scales and a pinball adventure holiday is ideal for her / us. ( the new Iphone was good idea as well )
  3. Once upon a time on a system 80 i had a similar issue , new everything , first thing i did was put in the old springs which fixed it . Maybe the wrong weight spring was sent by mistake (they looked the same ) , rare easy fix .
  4. Thanks Grant , I'm a complete novice ( at Everything ) . I was Advised by someone in the know that the first Spike games were sensitive to current flow or something and that the expensive surge plugs were the ' Thing ' , then next the stern bulletin (which changed ) hence the need for a Bulletin ,and the different capacitor setup . So i'm just wondering who has what inside their (above title ) machines . Mine are all different . Only have Ghostbuster problems . Out of ( recent ) desperation thought it might be something extra in the surge plug that might of been related . The machine just shuts down ( at any time ) (could be weeks ) , and restarts it's self . Maybe the new power supply is faulty as well ? What do all the ferrite blocks through out the machine do ? What else should I be looking at ? Kind Regards Ross
  5. Thanks for the response . I should have also mentioned the second thing I did was put a brand new power supply in it . The first thing i did was was put a Belkin BSV120 surge plug device at the outlet , maybe it conflicted with the machine or is faulty in its self (took me all this time to think of this) Just scratchin for ideas while waiting for to stop again . Thanks again
  6. Big Happy Birthday , Legend . Thanks for all your amazing contributions , hard work and HELP over the years . Hope you had a great day Kind Regards Ross & Hell
  7. I Know how much new Stern games are to buy because AMD have it plain and simple BUT how much did all the other machines cost- Delivered into the country with all the added GST , duty , this and that tax etc ...? Particularly the Spooky games . Please and Thanks
  8. Looking for a Gottlieb GENESIS please , working or not . Probably needs to be from somewhere Bill can get to . Thanks
  9. Batman 66 , Ghostbusters , Terminator 3 and Tommy . A few others of mine that fall into - the hard to find which don't play that well desirable keepsakes category . I've always wanted the chance to own a Tron , LOTR , CV , TZ .... but those bolts have always seem to been tighten down extremely hard
  10. Comes in real handy to have Ken just down the road , Helped me out so many times .
  11. Need to upgrade my "interested " to " Excited" on this one now . For me personally , I would have liked a Black & White cab with weird arse music and callouts , but I'm just ( always ) glad we have so many different games and Manufacturers out there even if i cant get the game I want at the moment or want them at all . So waiting to hear it first , Then waiting cause of demand ? maybe . ANYWAY ... I liked the whole scene Back 5 Years Ago , First place I'd go to was Technical Repair Questions , Seemed like every day - Mike , Edy , Ken , Doug - would be instantly there , Games were plentiful and priced so you had to talk yourself out buying them constantly . Discussion was a bit more open , informative and realistic . One thing I've always wondered is Whats happened to all those old Regulars ( everybody ) , have they just lost interest , got bored , annoyed , sold all their machines , got married or just found a different religion ?
  12. I really like Tommy , one of my all time Favourites . Big THANKS for selling me your other Tommy years ago . I'll never sell it .
  13. This theme has my interest , I grew up watching this stuff back in the B/W television days . The biggest drawcard for me ( with any machine ) is .... CALLOUTS , music and sounds , I have no idea how this be will integrated but be amazing if they can do the way I imagine . One good thing already is , I can wait and it's NOT limited to 750 or some other constraint .
  14. I got home last night to find a box the mail . What a lovely Gesture , all my favourites , trouble is , He's the one thats in a worse lockdown predicament than us (the other 5 guys he sent a package to )
  15. I'd Like to buy this machine Please. PM sending
  16. Huge Batman fans here ! After playing one on site , I bought one . It's our favourite machine .
  17. Must have been all those gun games at the front
  18. I liked the whole scene back in the day when Stern were about the only manufacturers , way more expensive than used but still affordable NIB . Not only could you buy several cheap machines but you had a choice , a big choice , so much so that you knock back word of mouth deals constantly . Great to look back in AA for sale section for prices/availability as reference . With all the manufacturers out there now , seems to be difficult to get a hold of some of the turn over that it should have generated . I don't know how the decline happened but years ago there was some banter between people asking ridiculous prices and others saying "it's their machine they can ask what they want " .
  19. Excellent thread ! I loved the initial Auction Description , The best .
  20. Happy Birthday young fella , hope you have more than one day off work . Thanks again for all the service you provide . CHEERS
  21. Sorry , I hate to be of any annoyance , but I tried to send a couple of PM . All I found was seller "unable to receive messages " Maybe just me and my inexperience . Thought it could have been full inbox or something . More likely dumb old me .
