The site has changed again! I now have a real home page, and I have added statistically significant information to help people find information quickly.

I started work on the Joust restoration. I THOUGHT I had two Williams joysticks but I can't for the life of me find them. Who knows, maybe I was thinking of the Stargate ones.... Going crazy in my old age :-)

Changed the wiring on my Robotron while I was going to put in new Joysticks. Turns out the handles on the joystick are too short and the housing felt strange when playing the game. So I put the original joysticks back in.

I am looking for Joysticks for my Joust and I need the centering Gromets for the Robotron style joysticks. If you have these for sale, please drop me an @EMAIL@.

Updated my Joust Restoration page with LOTS of pictures. Take a look!

Updated the Photo Tutorial on how to fix a control panel with wood putty. My analysis is at the bottom of the page.

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
