  1. The very first setups happening now at Pinfest! great venue. This is going to be a fantastic great show see you there!
  2. Hello all, Looking for a chime unit for a Strikes and Spares. The S&S I have has the chime unit with three chimes and works fine but need a second chime unit for the fourth chime. anybody know who has one? am I lucky…punk. Thanks and regards to all. Cliff
  3. Happy Birthday Kress. Have a great day. Cant wait to see your pinball trainer at Pinfest!
  4. Happy Birthday Grant. All the best.
  5. I replaced mine with an Arcade Upkeep Dimming Backbox Panel, its an LED dimming panel. I got three for Walking Dead, LOTR and Sopranos because the fluoro lighting was broken, no more starters and tubes and ballast for me anymore, runs on 12V only. No more 100Vac and its power supply needed. Very vibrant light, even on Sopranos. Come with all the bits you need to install it, and it bolts in place of the existing fluoro mount screw holes with a number of mounting positions. They do Whitestar and SAM and has user adjustable brightness, and automatically dimms down (user adjustable as well) when you start a game to prevent reflection on the upper part of the playfield glass while playing. This, paired with DMD glare filter (from Mr Pinball Aus) and PDI playfield glass, DMD and backglass reflecting on the playfield glass is a thing of the past. At the end of the game, after about 20 seconds (game over sequence and graphics) its brightens back up for attract mode again. Brilliant. Very handy upgrade but its not cheap - $74US plus $60US Shipping to Oz. Check it out on Pinside Shops - Arcade Upkeep
  6. Doing a playfield refresh on a Sopranos. I use a Lyman 1200 and walnut media. I dumped a bottle of Brasso in there, I leave it running non stop and as I dismantle the playfield piece by piece I toss most parts in there for a polish for a days. Does alright on most parts.

    RIP Lyman. F Sheats Jr. A small part of you will live on in all those pinball machines you got to touch over all the years.
  10. Sorry for the delayed reply. Absoutely ZZap, most of the graphics on the inserts are shot. Any chance I could get a print? Regards Cliff
  11. Just wondering if anyone knows if Williams Junkyard playfield repair decals exist at all. Got a mate who has a broken insert under the wrecking ball, its a bugger of a problem. TIA. Cliffy
  12. We should organise a demonstration march down High street Penrith, or, march down the street 'high', in Penrith, demanding the return of 'The Barn', chanting 'Less harm at the Barn got two jab...in my abb'. Just my 2 bob worth.
  13. But that can be a good thing too. Buying the game young and watching it mature, the art, playfield and artwork remain static and makes vision and sound and features a living thing for a few years. Stern's new online thing is going to speed things up a little and probably up the cost of the game features over time too.
  14. Going to get real busy for CGC for sure. Who's the aussie dealer?? Wayne?
  15. Probably be twice that price if you were selling it from SA at the moment. Why...who knows.
  16. Just wondering if Pincadia and Pinball Haus and Netherworld locations are open normally during the BPAC event for heavy in between play practise, and anything special like after hours and overnight play capabilities etc. The Brisban-ites have gotten a lot of live play practice over the last 6 days for the Masters lucky them! lol.
  17. I hope it does get streamed, such a perfect opportunity to promote the event and Masters play for those locked down interstate.
  18. The blood splatter is etched into the steel. I have a set on a pro, they look great.
  19. Thanks Hank, that’s the one. Champion!
  20. I was listening to ABC local radio Queensland and tonight and heard a story reported about pinball in Hobart bout 45 mins ago. Can't recollect the names of the players except a 'Jason' talking about playing pinball and technique etc. Was a good interview. Anyone else catch the interview?
  21. Can I grab the Pinsound Headphone Station please!
  22. I’ve seen and played this game in person and it’s fast. Has LED’s fitted. Has new Tangles 5v displays fitted. Flippers strong and very clean and looks great. Buy with confidence.
  23. That’s awesome man! Great to see a turn out like that. I hope the Winter Carnival is a goer. If it’s on then it’s going to be massive this year.
