After a three year hiatus, I’m back in the repair game. It’s a long drawn-out story, and I won’t bore you with details, but it’s been one heck of a ride.
Farewell to thee, O Golden Tee. Ten minutes ago it was sold to a man in Deerfield, MA. Godspeed, GT.
For those who do not already know, I am in the midst of a divorce. My wife will be moving out in just a few days, to a house that her parents have purchased for her. I wish her the very best of luck in whatever endeavour that she pursues. Of course, the whole series [...]
I was trying to think of a witty Popeye (or sailor) themed subject for this post. But, alas, nothing comes to mind. Oh, well. Popeye has joined the ranks of my games which have found a new home. I hope that the new owner can restore it.
It took four years, but this project finally found a new home near Chester, VT. It was bought by a man for his game room yesterday. On to the next great project.

But, I do still intend on building it, if only to see what I can do. Anyway, back to this project…it happened by serendipity. A warehouse raid was [...]

I can’t believe that it’s been over two years since my last update. The truth is, there hasn’t been a lot to update. I haven’t had a proper workshop in which to work. I never used to let that stop me; I worked downstairs in the foyer; a former neighbor didn’t like the way it [...]
This isn’t mine, but I will chronicle the work on it. A fellow collector picked this up recently with the intention of donating it to the American Classic Arcade Museum (like I’m doing with Tunnel Hunt). Non working with a broken glass, I advised him that it would go to a very dark corner of [...]
