Gottlieb Sinbad pinball machine SOLD

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Up for sale is one non-working, but super nice Gottlieb Sinbad pinball machine. As you can see in the pictures below, the backglass is nearly flawless and the playfield while dirty, is in above average condition. There is a large sheet of mylar on the playfield that has protected it well over the years. Cabinet is solid, and I have the original keys. There are some broken plastics, wear on the apron and the game needs shopped. The battery will need to be removed and the slight acid damage (resistors to right of battery) will need to be cleaned up. I have done nothing with this game except vacuum it and bring it into the basement. I have a number of projects and hate to see it just sitting doing nothing. I have the playfield glass as well, it has minor scratching. You can see my original post about the game here. Game is SOLD.

Star Wars Cockpit canopy plexi

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

I picked up a very nice star wars cockpit back in 2006 or so. It happened to be a factory converted ROTJ and I got it for a fair price. Soon it would be converted back to star wars. Cosmetically I didn’t have much to do with the game, other than replacing the broken canopy plexi. I couldn’t find any reproductions available, so I did some research and bought pre-cut plexi from a local vendor along with plexi drill bits and the heating strip needed to bend my own. Since I had a nice cockpit, my Star Wars upright was quickly traded away. Mongo came to pick it up and dropped off a working Tron along with a nice new set of canopy plexi. Of course. Needless to say the plexi project got shelved.

Fast forward four years and it’s time to revisit the project. I’m tired of moving the plexi around! Plus I need something to keep me busy while I wait for the Berzerk and Frenzy panels to return from the screen printer. Below you’ll see my sample plexi set and the jig I made from a set of canopy parts and plywood. The first set came out great but it needs some slight tweaking. I’ll only have enough material to make 12 sets, so if you need one, drop me a line!

Repair Log: Poker Machine: 022010

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Patient: Poker Machine UR, manufacturer unknown
Technician: Chris M
Problem: Game will not power on.
Troubleshoot: This poker game is in very nice shape other than a broken corner on the coin box door. I’m used to seeing these poker’s in horrid shape. This one was so clean I was hopeful for an easy fix. I unloaded the game in my garage and gave it a quick once over. Checked all the fuses and they were fine. Looked over all the connections and found a bad crimp on the single crimp wire near the transformer, the wire just pulled right out. Must have been a bad factory crimp as the wires were stapled in place and not easy to move around.
Solution: Pulled off the bad connector and extracted the pin. Crimped a new male pin in place and put the connector back in place. Powered it on and game fired right up with a nice picture on the monitor. I played a few hands and everything seems to be working just fine. I have no space for this game, so it will be hitting the sale page. Drop me a line if you have any interest in a nice working Poker Machine.

New items up at ChaseTheChuckwagon

Friday, March 13th, 2009

I’ve been forced to clear out my 20′ x 20′ storage unit to cut monthly expenses. Unfortunately, that means I have to unload a lot of the spare parts I’ve collected over the years. Lots of deals to be had. I can’t keep anything that doesn’t sell, so make an offer if you don’t like the price! The scrap man gets it otherwise 🙂

If you aren’t familiar with CTCW you should take a moment to check it out. Great place to buy and sell arcade related items. You only pay fees if your items sell, or if you take advantage of the extra listing features. I just do the basic posts with images so I can post all kinds of odd-ball arcade items without having to pay up front fees. I can re list for free too, great site!
