71: The Frost-Free Spigot


July 2018

It’s been said that we talk a lot.  Truth be told – we do.  I’m not sure if it’s us liking to hear our own voice or if it’s that we actually have something to say.  Maybe it’s somewhere in-between.  Regardless, we give it our all every month and July is no different.  We dig into some great (almost) gameroom updates – Brent discusses wiring up his air compressor and is looking to build a thermoforming machine!  Yeah – you read that right – THERMOFORMING.  Nothing is safe now.

Whitney makes a sweet score on a Vectrex bundle, gets in his RetroN 77 and discusses some recent travels to boot.  Add in some discussion around video test harnesses, testing pinball motors, a possible Warlords reproduction PCB, Red Tent reproduction CPOs and some talk about “The End” for Major Havoc and you’ve got Ep. 71!

Oh yeah – we also fix Brent’s bathroom and a busted spigot at Whitneys’ house.  Home Repair show or arcade and pinball podcast???? YOU DECIDE.
