Gottlieb Roto Pool revival 1958

So this was a PROJECT for me as a first time pinball about which I knew almost nothing. But now know a bit more! It did have me tearing my hair out at various stages going through the 'Yay, I can't believe I managed to get it working..... ah it's not working anymore....' So in a way nothing too majo...

Another allwin revival - Wonders 24 winning cups

Another from my shed load of faded allwins. The Wonders 23 cups giant allwin. Needed to do a new backflash from a scan of the original as it was too far gone and new acetate. Those 24 cups were a real pain to punch and fit - Oh for a single gallery! Also needed a few bits of new wood and lots of pen...

Re: Gottlieb Roto Pool 1958

That’s what I first thought as well BP. I traced and check these contacts and they were fine. I then checked the relay was receiving the full 25v, which it was. As a double check, I took the relay out and connected it direct to the 25v supply and still the same - it couldn’t quite actuate. That’s wh...

Gottlieb Roto Pool 1958

Don’t seem to be many pinballs appearing on here.... maybe there’s a reason! Anyway, I picked this one up last week. Got to say I thought I’d been a bit of an idiot when I got it home and it took up all the remaining space in the workshop. Plugged it in and it appeared to work for a minute, then it ...

Re: Oliver Whales Treble Chance

Thanks to the two above for supplying the sample artwork. If anyone needs a hi res tidied, correctly sized and ready to print version I've just done this one from the ones above. It includes 2cm of bleed all around.

Re: Oliver Whales Treble Chance

Ah that’s interesting. I wondered why there were two balls in the machine when I opened it. That could well be the explanation. Thanks
