WIP SEGA Space Harrier – Part 3

I have sent the non working boards in UK to RetroClinic. This guy is very skilled, he will repair your old Sega PCB easily… Live from United Kingdom. Work in Progress… That’s great news! It works! This PCB is soooo rare (and expensive… We saw one in auction in Japan this year 2015. It was […]

WILLIAMS T2 Pinball Hunter Ship

I like original stuff. Not keen on LED and other ‘modern’ stuff on pinballs. But this Hunter Ship modification was quite interesting. Btw my ship was not very shiny, it looks like aluminium, not chrome. So I decided to buy a new ship and this mod. I don’t regret it, even though it is very repetitive to see […]

WIP JALECO Pony Mark 3

Sometimes Arcade needs some DIY stuff. Today I realize a cardboard bezel for one friend. Only the part close to screen will be visible, as the glass is covered with a black contour. The bezel is useful to cover the area between glass and screen. I used a 50cm x 70cm black cardboard paper. Finished Without and […]

WIP SEGA Space Harrier – Part 2

Here we are. Back on the Space Harrier. It’s been too long. I can’t wait anymore. Let’s fix this. Ok, now that the cab is moved to the living room, I can take care of it more easily. We have to deal with lots of cables. Lots of them are disconnected. Hopefully one friend got a Space […]

WIP BALLY MIDWAY Discs of Tron

It’s alive!! Finally, after more than one year I can play this incredible machine with some friends. I reached 52800 points for now (difficulty level 3). Levels are those where the platforms disappear and where you can hit the ceiling. This makes the game more interesting… The game doesn’t seems interesting at first sight, but […]

WIP JALECO PONY MARK III – JOYSTICKS

After some months I finally decided to change the two old joysticks and buttons of the Pony Mark III ! I don’t have time to play a lot but when I can it’s impossible to go far into games. The old rusty joysticks are not smooth and responsive anymore.     I buy two new SEIMITSU […]

WIP WILLIAMS T2 Pinball – Part 7

Almost… I could have finished at 100% this WIP, but unfortunately after this step there will be other small things to fix (resistance + capacitors, re-paint the spaceship, etc.). But it’s still a great day! I put the Playfield Protector and all the upper decorations. The render with the PP is strange at the beginning… […]

WIP WILLIAMS T2 Pinball – Part 6

Re-installing all the playfield parts: bulbs (some new), new elastics, new crystal plastic parts, wood and metal rails, plastics, etc. Before installing the playfield protector and the big upper parts it’s finally time to switch the machine ON and see if everything is still working well. Well, I had some trouble with one connector. Only one […]

WIP WILLIAMS T2 Pinball – Part 5

Now, the dark side of the playfield! Very dirty too… The wood + every bulb, PCB, wire should be cleaned… It’s a lot of work. I have decide to keep the wires on the playfield as I don’t want to do a lots of welding. It should be enough to renew this part of the […]

WIP WILLIAMS T2 Pinball – Part 4

Playfield, second part: the cleaning.   I started to clean with some ‘white spirit’, but it’s obviously not the right product to remove the glue… The magical product below on the picture… It removes the glue quite easily. Don’t be shy with it, it is perfectly safe for the playfield, and it’s very cheap! Hey! […]

WIP WILLIAMS T2 Pinball – Part 3

Let’s have a look to the playfield. It’s very dirty… Looks like nobody removed the parts to clean the playfield in details! It’s a good think because it means it should be in great shape under all this dirt and layers of mylar (protective film). Some inserts have been already replaced, but I don’t like […]
