Konami Windy 1 (pink)

Post by markedkiller78 » January 22nd, 2019, 3:00 pm

No longer for sale
[+] Spoiler...
I need to make space, so have a Windy 1 one for sale.
[+] Spoiler...
Was £1,175 obo
The good: The cabinet is in good shape. It has the original monitor and chassis, the picture is bright and clear (see below) . There is no significant damage to the cab (it does have the odd scratch, cigarette burn and yellowing)

The bad: CP locks are missing, it doesn't' have the original locks. The CP has rust and the overlay is damaged, the doors are yellow, the monitor has a fair amount of burn. The convergence on the bottom corners needs looked at. The chassis is buzzing, but it's not bad. I can only hear it when the back hatch is off.

Martin will be here soonish, so this could be with a UK buyer very soon.

If you have any questions or want more pictures, let me know.

Really nice cab Mark, if I didn't have a couple already I'd be all over this. GLWS.

I've got some original Windy control panel locks if the buyer wants them although I don't have any tangs.

Any Toshiba MS8/9 will drop in there too.

I grabbed some convergence strips and improved the corners of the screen. With more time (and a spare body) I’m sure I could get it almost perfect.

Update on the chassis buzz, it’s the same on all my cabs. So they’re potentially all ****, or its normal when you have your ear an inch from it?

Chassis buzz will be an old coil vibrating. Nothing to worry about, fixable if you can wedge something in where it's vibrating.

Price drop to £995. It’s on eBay for the same amount.

I’ve got a £1 FVF and won’t be taking PayPal on it. If it doesn’t sell, I’ll just have to keep it, oh the hardship.

The cab is in good overall (unrestored) condition. It will clean up well, I just don’t have the time. That yellowing of the top layer will polish out (with some effort)

Whilst there is burn on the monitor, It’s produces a lovely picture. It’s genuinly not that bad in game. It’s also one of the easier tubes to replace.
