Going to be a good pinball repair site?
« on: November 10, 2011, 06:29:48 pm »
Poking around I came across http://pinrepairs.com. Does not look very complete really currently.

Just curious if anyone has more info on this site and know if it is even actively being worked on?
Current games:
- Data East Star Wars Pinball
- High Speed Pinball
- Pool Sharks Pinball
- Big Guns Pinball
- Fire! Pinball
- Simpsons 4 Player Arcade
- Mortal Kombat I

I hate to argue with an idiot but if that is how you really feel then maybe you should take your superiority somplace else.

Or at least up your daily dose of MIDOL to help keep your vaginitis in check.

Don't bother with that site. Just use this one:

PBJ was joking. (I think)

You shouldn't take what he types offensively.

a little from column A, a little from column B.

the site USED to be free.

where, even many of the members here, submitted and received credit for their tips and tricks on fixing pinball machines.

then the guy running the site decided one day a number of months back he was going to charge for the info saying, among other things, that the information was copyrighted, bla bla bla and other nonsense, even the user submitted info. so yeah everybody here kinda has a bad taste in their mouth regarding the whole thing.

as for PBJ, he has a unusual sense of humor, i wouldn't take it to heart.

but, you are in luck, the site Ken mentioned has been started by the afore mentioned users to try and get back the wealth of information those pages contained, but someone has managed to dump the info and save it to another site. http://www.thepirates.net.au/arcade/Pinball/PinRepair/Apr-11/Pinrepair/

if someone knows the (user)name of that person so i can credit them

I am biased towards PinWiki.com, as I run it! I don't claim to have every single piece of info but we do hold a lot of info.
Where's my gold star :P

Thanks for all the info guys! I was in to collecting arcades for a while and got myself around 12-15, but have sinced moved over to pinball and only have those.(Plus a simpsons and MK1 arcade, but I'd rather part with them)

Anyways, the info is appreciated! I am collecting system 11 games as I am definitely a fan of the ritchie's as well as many of the games made during then.


P.s-  Anyone in the portland, OR area have a system 11? :P

Current games:
- Data East Star Wars Pinball
- High Speed Pinball
- Pool Sharks Pinball
- Big Guns Pinball
- Fire! Pinball
