I usually pay 300-500 euro for a pallet/container section from Japan. Thats not a full container, just a section of a shared 20ft-40ft container.


yeah thats groupage , a container spreads the cost fairly well but outside of some one being able to take the cab in the 1st place it might be a non runner and as said some carriers might insist on it being packaged in a certain way.
Also i have in my head it could be hard to make the actual payment as well...

if it was easy or cheap we would see people bringing in individual cabs all over europe in bigger numbers

Finally got off my lazy arse and put a new starter in the SNK lightbox, forgot I had that sexy pink tinge bulb in there

Need to dig out the marquee holder for the Pony too and get some artwork into them.

Has anyone ever purchased a cab from the UK? If so how much was the shipping?

Brought a good few in over the years and it's never been the same ,it ranged from 80 to near 200 ,depending on location ,loading facilities etc ,man with a van if doable is normally the best.

Thanks. I was thinking of hiring a van when the machine im after comes up. Ive been stalking Jamma+ forums for the last few months. Is there any other sources of machines in the uk that you know of?

I rang my local delivery company that was part of The Pallet Network. Shipped a pinball to the UK for about €100 if I remember.

I'd say Jamma+ and UKVAC are the heat sources for cabs

I only just realised you can save soft dip settings with the 111 in 1 MVS multi board - I've been playing games on the default settings, so no blood and the hardest, level 8 difficulty.

If you open a game, make changes on the soft dip, let the game run and then do a soft reset by holding the 1 player button for 5 seconds, it actually saves the settings to the MVS cart's backup RAM.

Can't believe I didn't know that.

Giving the Pacman cabaret cab a quick inspection and looking at how much work is needed (a lot!! but I knew that and it's all part of the fun) :

Olly in the UK is one of the best out there:

Very flexible and helpful with re-sizes etc

Do you have the artwork you want?

finally got the pcb working and rebuilt (new caps, flyback , coil, IC and regulators) G07 the monitor. Had some sync issues that are mostly fix , aside from a tiny bit of curl still present on top right corner but I think I know where that's coming from.
Ordered some wood grain vinyl for the sides and artwork from Olly

finally fixed the issue with the curl on the G07 monitor.
The cap kit comes with a little H sync mod to help with more modern games, but after reading online this can cause more issues than it can fix some times . I reverted the mod on the monitor and boom. picture is nice and straight and the sync is stable now.
The last thing to iron out is to add a couple of big caps that aren't present on the G07 FB0 (but present on a G07 CB0 - the 19 inch model) model to restore the horizontal width that shrinks a bit after installing a new flyback (adjusting the horizontal coil in this case doesn't restore it completely).

Got the t moulding and wood vinyl on now, just waiting for the artwork to arrive in hopefully a couple of weeks. This one took a while. especially the wood repairs at the bottom and sides.
