  1. Yeah, I'm on an EDV as well. I like them, and tortoise mode is your friend! I work out of a rural post office, so it can be bitterly cold at times. We are expecting snow this week, so i shall say goodbye to my fingers now!
  2. I.m a postie here in Tas. Definitely not a cushy job! Cold and rain isn't a problem, but the wind is an issue for me. Faster Faster, take more, take more...........but don't do more than 10kph on the footpath lol , but go faster!
  3. Who's looking forward to this!? I for one am keen as to see it. I thought the original was a good movie, not great, but very watchable. I think im super keen as its all live action with no CGI, and that appeals to me, as do aircraft dog fights. not a huge Cruise fan, but he has done some respectable work in his career. Just think it might be nice big screen film to see, with plenty going on! If anyone has seen it, can you describe it in one word only?
  4. Hi mate, can you add Space Chaser to one of these vertical boards? All I want to do is play Space Chaser lol!
  5. Hi all, looking for a Space Chaser board, working. Hopefully someone here may have one for sale. cheers.
  6. Hi guys, just looking for a ball park price check on a Gottleib Pinball Pool. I’d say good condition, but not restored or near that level. cheers.
  7. Hello hello....have myself a WRC conversion kit on a cab, and am wondering what other car games can be installed on this? throttle is on off, spring centred wheel, horizontal and
  8. I guess at the end of the day it and a few of the others are just too sensitive for my style. The playboy and Phoenix didn’t tilt once. I was also at pinball paradise and played TAF and plenty of others with no issue.
  9. On a recent trip I dropped by the Golden Fleece Hotel. Some nice pins in there, new and old. My only gripe........tilt set way too sensitive. I like to give a little persuasion when playing, but man, one little nudge, and I mean little, and it was all over! I’m not sure if the owner of these are a member here, but if you are, please loosen up on the tilt status a bit....pleeeease lol. Ps I literally had to stand like a robot on some of them. Namely Jurassic Park. Didn’t play it again.
  10. Thought I’d post a pic of my pins so far. I had no games whatsoever for some years, so just getting back into the swing of it. Latest was the Space Shuttle. Ran a rubber kit and replaced some flipper parts. DKong gave it a fix and tweak and it played rock solid for my mini meet last night. Not sure how many I’ll get, but I’m going to be very selective according to my needs. Phantom is shallow, but it’s a fast and furious game to play, with great art and excellent sound. Space Shuttle has a nice flow, and is a great all rounder with cool art and audio as well. Definitely a difference between Williams and Data East. Both great pins in their own right.
  11. Yo peeps, can anyone reproduce this on a shiny silver sticker? Once again shipping from US has ruined it for me. Cheers.
  12. Hi all, I’m having a little trouble finding the correct flipper coils for SS. The manual says FL23/600-30-2600-50VDC I can’t seem to find them on RTBB with that number. Is there another that I can use? Or are these the only ones? Cheers in advance!
  13. G’day guys, I’m looking to rebuild the flippers on Space Shuttle ( Williams ) and wondering where I can buy these parts from? I’ve found them on eBay, but I’d rather get them from a supplier here if possible. Also, do I put brand new solinoids in as well, or just keep the existing ones in? Cheers!
