Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

I got my favorite game back.... again.

This is a great game as I always say. I added the Color DMD display and I think it looks great. I also had the wire ramps plated in black nickel. There are new plastics, plastic protectors, Cliffy protector, Cliffy colored sleeves, LEDs, and a new Rottendog driver board. The cabinet is in great condition. The playfield is in great condition.

Initial Triage: 2 hours

Replace driver board with Rottendog driver board: 1 hr

Remove wire ramps and plastic ramps. Fix spinner switch. Replace fliptronics board since switch circuit for F7 (spinner on this game) was bad. 6 hrs

Order all parts: 2 hrs

Document: 2 hrs

Remove Subway, clean, put on Neutral Zone Cliffy protector: 1 hr

Replace LEDs: 5 hrs

Fix left cannon: 3 hrs

Clean play field, add color Cliffy sleeves: 4 hrs

Replace ramps, wire ramps, continue to clean, install color dmd: 10 hrs

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

This game comes with a manual.

This is what it looked like when I first got it.

 

item

I started taking off the wire ramps. I remembered that the left straight ramp will not come off unless the popper is temporarily removed. So I decided to take all ramps off the game. I started from the right ramp but needed to take off the flasher dome and light first.

Virginia Sales Tax

Virginia sales tax is currently 6.0%. Sales tax for in-state orders applies to machines and parts. It does not apply to the delivery or repair services.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
