    Wow....should have looked at that pricing before I started huh.... :FP:


    Seriously, I don't need to make that kind of money off of this....it is a lot of work but not that much work.
    Besides, this is just a fun side job sort of thing....:)

    I am on the fence on these. Will all of the holes be drilled? Meaning all of the bolt holes for hinges, lockdown receiver or are we responsible for that? I would rather pay more for a cabinet that is 100% ready and 100% accurate than have to go through the trouble of drilling everything.

    I'm thinking about about replacing my Addams family cabinet and would want as close of a match as possible.

    Once I have a sample cab to work from I will be drilling for hinges and receiver, until that point, I don't think anyone wants me "guessing" as to where the holes should go....:)

    I'm dropping of my Sys11 cab (HS) in the next couple of weeks to be used as a template.

    If we all drop off a style of each cab, Steve will have a pretty complete template DB to work off of.....sweet benefits!

    The High Speed cab is a great idea, cuz I'm gonna need the head at least :) If I were closer, I'd drop off a classic Bally for the cause.

    Bally cabs aren't a problem...:) I compared the SS Silverball Mania to the EM Night Rider before selling so I have them all documented with pics and dimensions. I also have Chicago Coin and early Stern covered.

    Thanks guys!!

    Steve,
    As always, whatever cabs I have that you need to measure, I am pretty close by.
    Anytime... I have a few orders coming your way myself. Keep it up.
    Thank you.
    Cheers.
    Scott

    Thanks again Scott, I'm sure I'll be dropping by at some point in the near future...:)

    @rockinganker- I'm going to be taking this week to get caught up on some work I've let slide with the virtual pinball boards and re-organizing the shop (I realized this week that I was going to have to make some room for some cabs...:) ). At the end of the week I'll be picking up a WPC95 cab from Drano so I can build him a couple. I could do yours at the same time if you like.

    Will do. I usually ask for 50% down so I'm not too far out of pocket on materials. Will let you know when I'm ready to go.

    Most likely I'll get started next weekend.

    Thanks again.

    We briefly met when I picked up your night rider with my friend dave. I'm in oshawa and have classic bally/classic stern/early SS williams machines that you could use for measurements. I am also still interested in a new head for my EFTLW hopefully before the end of march. The EFTLW is a unique cabinet design that was only used on EFTLW and bally blackwater 100 if you need to measure that too.

    Hey Richard, nice to hear from you again. I appreciate the offer and will keep you in mind for those measurements. I'll take you up on the EFTLW measurements when things slow back down in a week or so, can't hurt to have those specs as I've seen a few of them come up for sale and the cabs always look rough on them.

    Thanks again,

    Steve
