Back from the dead! 0

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.

Fare thee well… 0

Farewell to thee, O Golden Tee. Ten minutes ago it was sold to a man in Deerfield, MA. Godspeed, GT.

Silver Lining 0

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 [...]

can’t think of a witty subject… 0

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.

A fond farewell… 0

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.

It took two years to get my boards back. I wasn’t in a hurry. Another six months of holding onto it before putting it back into the cabinet. And approximately two minutes to blow it up. :p I’d converted the board to use a switching power supply. I had not converted the cabinet until today. [...]


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 [...]

Foxy Lady – a pin! 0

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 [...]
