    Possibly a Bally 6803 tester as well , i'm supposed to already have one but i fear somebody has lost it for me.
    Hi Ken, did you end up getting a Bally 6803 tester? The reason i ask is that have a Bally Special Force i just started working on (for myself, not a customers game) that i might need some help with later on!

    BTW AWESOME setup you have there!!

    Ken mate, your patience is world worthy but let's just call it by the balls. D** has lost it.

    Mate you are one of the most easy going people here on AA and always prepared to help all and sundry in post haste time.

    It does tick me of on your behalf that you help so many people in this hobby and someone lets you down for a 3 years delivery. From a major identity in OZ no less.

    Ken as an amateur board repairer myself I'm amazed by your setup. Do you do tours?

    Are most of these factory test benches or have you made most of them yourself?

    Thanks i'm glad you like them , i'm not really a tour guide and am busy most of the time but if you were ever up this way you're welcome to drop in for a quick visit.
    Most of them are Factory , a couple of them are home made ( i got them that way but i've added to and modified them to suit my needs)

    I finally took a picture of the Whitestar fixture i built / modified over Christmas break.
    I have been looking for a factory tester for Sega / Stern boards for years and they just don't come up for sale.
    Bay Area have had a brand new one on their website for sale for a long time but the price is expensive and i guess that's why it hasn't sold.
    Up until now i had an old Starship troopers that i used to test boards in but it took up too much room.

    Anyway , i had a spare Wpc field tester i wasn't using , i had a transformer out of an Apollo13 i wrecked a few years back , and Oscar from PinMem was very kind to send me a complete wiring harness out of a Striker Extreme....Thanks Oscar!
    Here is the end result and i'm very happy with how it turned out

    Do you use a testing set of chips for modern test benches like where required in the past?

    Nice looking bench by the way.

    Almost all of the test fixtures have special test roms for them except the Data East and the Whitestar one i've just built.
    For some reason Stern doesn't see a need for a test rom and you just have to use game roms.
    I am in contact with a guy in the US who owns a factory Stern Whitestar tester and yep , no special roms for it.....he's contacted Stern and was told there were never any test roms for it.
