I recently purchased some used coinmechs off of eBay. I'd never replaced coinmechs before (I'm restoring a Simpsons arcade, they were missing) and didn't notice until I was installing one that they're missing the screw in "nubs". I dont know the actual name for these screws/bolts thus searching for them is difficult. Any chance I'd be able to buy a dozen from somewhere/one?

Well it all depends on the condition, but $150 is a pretty good price for about any game.

Toggle between games by simply pressing both the player-1 and player-2 start buttons at the same time. Instantly the game will reset and switch to the other game.

Good luck on this!!  One of my all time favorite games - also one of the rarest to find.  Keep us posted.

HellO all - greetings from Chicagoland!

After a Pac and Ms Pac restore, I am on my very first Nintendo cocktail. 

Growing up in the 80s, I hope to pass all of what I learn about these machines onto my kids.  The DK cocktail has been a fun project.  After a monitor and board rebuild - a little oil into the original joysticks, new speaker and I was good to go.  I played this table for several hours with my kids.  After some time - the monitor went completely white.  No sound, no coin from service switch. 

I should be testing the PS when time permits.  If I'm not getting the voltage needed, I was going to replace the original PS with one from

These guys went through the trouble of installing a kit onto the new PS.  This makes for a clean install.  Only one issue that I see here...

Where would the transformer come into play here - connected to?  The AC power lines that come with this are for a standup cab with the terminal strip.  I'm assuming because of the monitor usage here, we still need the transformer that runs the table fan and monitor.

Any insight to how the transformer and this new PS would connect would be appreciated.

I found an arcade machine for sale locally and the lady knows nothing about it. She wants $150 for a Space Encounters Upright Cabinet. I was going to see if I could low ball her. What would this be worth if fully restored? Is $150 too much?

Update! Thanks P-feif.  So after you saying this I started looking on my monitor board. Sure enough I didn't know that the Sharp 1801n had a switch to invert the colors. So I flipped the switch and the screen went white. So I pulled my other monitor out that didn't boot up at all and retried it. Sure enough after replacing a fuse the monitor came on wigh the colors inverted. So I flipped the switch on this one and sure enough the colors are correct. So all in all I fixed one monitor with a fuse and now need to figure out whsts up with the switch for the invert colors on the other.
