After I finished the Seeburg 200C-1, I decided to clear up some projects that I had laying around. My son Todd is in school and he is in a fraternity. They had a pinball machine that they were going to throw out so they asked me if I wanted it. The playfield has a lot of paint loss so it really wouldn't be something to fix and flip. I don't really want the parts, but I didn't want to see it destroyed so I took the orphan home. There was a lot of broken wires, missing switches, burnt board, cooked coil, etc. It was pretty much a parts machine.
I was able to make a few pieces from some scrap parts to get this to work. I didn't want to put any money into it but it needed a coil and I ended up putting in $10.00 plus shipping. I was going to junk it when I kept finding all the problems but my wife seemed to think that this game would be fun to play so I did one of those Larry Tate moves (Bewitched), I figured if she liked it, I loved it. I got it working and it is a very fun game. I like it better than my Chicago Coin Jukebox pinball from 1976. Now I'm thinking about finding a playfield.
I offered it back to my son, but he doesn't think they would want it. I'm seeing him today for Easter. Oh by the way, Happy Easter. Maybe he will change his mind after he plays it. This one only took me a couple weekends to fix. My next project is a 1938 Genco Double Track dual pinball machine. Very rare. That one will be a challenge. All the wires are shot, no schematics, and the glass wasn't on this machine so I have to clean it without paint loss. Fun times ahead.
