BLACK KNIGHT Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIn late of year 2007 I found this machine for sale close to where I live. I thought that I needed a WPC machine to practice my pinball skills on. This machine has never been out on a public lounge, instead it has been used as a show machine at a operators office and when business was closed down one of the employs bought it for private use at home. The machine is in need of a playfield shop and Kiss and Snack Bar plastics need to be replaced with new ones. Some wear can be found around the Snack Bar hole. Cliffys Snack Bar hole protector will be installed.
EARTHSHAKER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverEarthshaker (SS) 1989 is a pinball machine that I have been chasing for half a year. First time I played the machine was at the event Pinball Swedish Master 2007 and I thought it had a great theme and just right level of difficulties for me. In February 2008 I got the opportunity to buy one. Check out the work with the machine and also see how I made own ramp protectors and playfield paint touch ups on my webpage.
FIREPOWER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is the second pinball, Williams Firepower 1980, I bought in February -07. It worked when I tried it at the seller but there was some problems with loose contacts which affected the displays - working/non working. Since it not was in the best state it was my second refurbishing project and what I did not know was how extensive it went out to be, for additional information please check it out on my webpage.
GENIE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
GRAND PRIX Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis was my first pinball bought in Nov-2006. The only thing that worked on the machine was the GI general illumination and the score motor made 1/2 turn when trying to start a new game. For refurbishing history please visit my webpage.
HIGH SPEED Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIn September 2008 there was a advertise on the internet for a High Speed and I got the opportunity to buy it for a feasible amount of Swedish currency. The playfield had big areas with wear, paint loose, and that it would be hard to paint touch-up this big areas even if I earlier had done a major paint touch-up on Williams Firepower 1980. The center targets plastic was broken and need to be replaced. If I should start a paint job on this playfield I think it would be overwhelming. Instead a opportunity was raised to swap the playfield with another one in better condition, you can follow the playfield swap on my webpage.
MAGIC CASTLE Zaccaria (Italy)Set up, plays!NeverYesterday (20091001) I became the owner of a Zaccaria Magic Castle pinball. It proved to be a more advanced game than I first thought with a lot of unusual features. On a closer look today I went more and more pleased about my purchase when I saw that playfield is in a very good condition and only one playfield plastic is broken (missing part) and the roof over the upper playfield is cracked, it turned out when my kids were playing with a ball on the playfield that the missing playfield plastic part came out from a tunnel. Yes, the playfield plastic can be saved in any way. I feel more and more euphoric of owning a pinball machine with ancestry from Italy and from the mid-eighties. Certainly this will increasingly be seen as a complete renovation project starting from the playfield to the electronics part of the machine, but I think the pinball machine has potential when the renovation is completed. I've already seen some characteristics that differ from other manufacturers from the same era as, react flipper, mechanical backbox animation, fluorescent lamp to illuminate the back glass, humorous speech, "look at your score, what do you think, " bonus advance time. The pinball brand Zaccaria was before for me only a odd name with hard to obtain spare parts, then so be it, but now I see more and more how of these Italian pinball machines seem to have a lot of charm. Unfortunately, back glass was in a thousand of pieces, but it is possible to restore by a self-made "translite". This pinball machine has been in storage for five years without attention and previous owners have never had time to restore the machine and wanted to get rid of it to a serious collector instead of sending it to the junkyard, it was here I turned up and now it's for me to spend a lot of celestial energy and hours to get machine in original condition again - TLC - Tender, Love and Care. Spontaneous I feel that this project can be very fun. On an initial review of circuit boards, I see no burnt or damaged components, my main concern was leakage from the battery Ncid (NiCd battery pack) on the CPU board, but this was previously removed and replaced by a 1.5 V battery. As an old painter I like the colour scheme used on the playfield and the backbox. I will only say, this is the journey of ZACC..ula...  
SPACE MISSION Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOwned since May 2007. The history behind my Space Mission is that it has been in operative use for four years by the Swedish operator company Cherry bolagen and then been hold by an mechanic who ended at this company in the beginning of the 80´ths, private owned since 1980. Follow the refurbishing of this old treasure on my webpage.
