Re: EBD GI lighting Issue

By my math the Comet Retro's lasted 180 hrs +/- 6 hours before they failed. Even with a warning of not having a long life, this seems like an exceptionally short lifespan! I'll check out the ones you listed. This was my first try of using Comet bulbs; I typically had purchased from PBL prior to this...

EBD GI lighting Issue

Prior to MadRollin this year, I went through my Eight Ball Deluxe and I installed all new Comet Retro LED’s on the Topside and new incandescents under the playfield. About three weeks after MadRollin, the lower half of the playfield GI’s all were a lot dimmer than they should be; maybe 40-50% of the...

Re: 2018 IFPA Points for Wisconsin Pinheads

Just a thought about the name (if this all Wisconsin league does work out); I would forevermore avoid using WiFPA. Instead simply go with something like Wisconsin Pinball League or something like that. I wonder if the Sharpes would get a bit territorial about their name (or versions of it) if a lot ...

Lesson Learned on Alltek Ultimate LED Driver Board

I learned an important lesson this weekend after frying my second Alltek Ultimade LED driver board; SCR's are sensitive! Back in March, I tried installing the Alltek board in my EBD, however 2 minutes after installing it, I fried a trace and an SCR. After a little diggin, I thought that I had hooked...

Re: Coupon Code?

I just ordered one on Monday for TZ. I'm probably going to order the next one towards the middle of September if you're not planning on purchasing immediately.

Re: Coupon Code?

I didn't see anything on their site about the free shipping option; I will have to ask around if anyone else is interested when I'm ready to order my next one.

That would make sense to just have it be some boilerplate thingy.

Thanks!

Coupon Code?

I was just looking at ordering an LED ColorDMD display when I noticed on the left side they have a box for Coupon Code. Has anyone ever actually come across a coupon code for ColorDMD's? If so, when do they give them out?

Thanks!

What do you guys do?

I just realized, at four machines, I probably need to check my insurance coverage to make sure my pins are covered in the event something happens (basement flood, fire, someone gets really ticked at a pin...) My question is what do you guys do to make sure your pins are properly covered? How do you ...

Re: What do you do with dirty balls?

What media do you use in the tumbler when polishing balls? Do you use something different for posts and parts? I hadn't thought about using mine for pinball parts and have only used it on stones.

Re: Madison Pinball Has a Fourth Location

When we stopped by last Saturday night they also had a band playing in the back room. I don't know if this was usual for the place or not, but it was kinda cool to be playing pinball, drinking beer and listening to a local band
