Re: WTB: Gottlieb Dimension head (or parts head)

I agree. I still think I'd probably buy the 2001 head. For $50 it's a nice back-up plan. Actually if you are so inclined it may be a cheap and resourceful way to make a complete machine. It's nice that the paint will be correct. I guess it all depends on your skill set and level of motivation which ...

Re: WTB: Gottlieb Dimension head (or parts head)

No dice from my guy. I thought that may be the case but worth a shot. The 2001 head may be the next best option. The lighting will be a bit different and probably quite a bit different mechanically but it's at least a feasible starting point. Some guys with a schematic and a pile of parts could buil...

Re: WTB: Gottlieb Dimension head (or parts head)

Ah that's you? I didn't make the connection on Pinside. Congratulations on the pickup. Super cool game. I sent an email to a friend that deals in EM arcades and pinballs. It's a longshot but he may have something. Somebody somewhere likely has a Dimension head squirreled away.

Re: WTB someone who can triple thick a glass for me

I agree. I have had good luck with Triple Thick over the years. With that said it seems to have a mixed success rate. I have a friend that had a sealed Heat Wave glass with ink that delaminated in big chunks. It's a good option for a glass that you want to "save" if it's deteriorating heavily alread...

Re: WTB Jukebox

I have this old Seeburg 220. It plays and is decent cosmetically. With some work could be really nice. https://janesville.craigslist.org/atq/6099723036.html A friend of mine just sold this restored 222 for $4k. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seeburg-Model-222-Stereo-Jukebox-from-1958-59-/351887149546?hash=...

Re: FS: 1971 Williams Action Baseball Pitch and Bat Game (Project) $700

Nice looking game Todd. Was this used in a commercial or something? Just curious about the Prop # on the front.

Re: WTB - Gottlieb wedgehead backbox and lockdown bar

Hi Sean, I have a friend near Chicago that buys and sells a lot of EM games and parts. I asked him if he had the parts you need. He doesn't have the backbox but does have a correct lock down bar. He wants $60 plus shipping for it. That may be more than you were hoping to invest for such a project? A...

Re: WTB - Gottlieb wedgehead backbox and lockdown bar

I don't have the parts you need but it may be worth mentioning what machine it is for. Early 70s Gottliebs use a studded lockdown bar, late 70s use the shark fin style. You could probably convert it either way with the right receiver.

Doh! You gotta be quick. If for some reason Sean changes his mind on Dimension I'd be interested. :D

Re: Where does Don in Verona keep finding games?

Who knows? He said he had a picture board his girlfriend made with 250 of them. Hard to know how well he documented his purchases beyond that? He also said the cheap projects were starting to dry up. Well yeah, he bought them all. He has room for eight, so he turns 'em and burns 'em pretty quickly i...

Re: Where does Don in Verona keep finding games?

I sold a cheaper EM to Don last night. He told me he has owned 385 games in 5 years. That ought to get Hilton fired up. :lol:

To be fair he was very pleasant and easy to work with.

John is always a pleasure to deal with. A good guy that takes great care of his games. Just a little reference as I know us EM guys travel in different circles. :)

Neat. Apparently there is a nickel version and one that plays using a Bally token. Which one is this?

Re: 1973 Gottlieb Pro Pool

Here are a couple more pics. Not great photography but give a general idea of playfield and backglass condition.
