Sheriff Cocktail: Part 4

So after a trip to B&Q (other DIY retailers are available…) I returned with a Dremel to allow me to remove the stubborn nuts and bolts. So with a cutting disc attached, the work began: The disc cut through the bolts with ease (although the locking shims were a bit “sparky”): So after attacking all…

Purchases (Oct ‘18-Feb ‘19)

Well this is what I get for moving house, a long delay in posts (and a reduced purchasing rate…). So due to my purchase and move into a new house I’ve gotten behind with my updates to this section (and others!). So without further delay, we’ll get into it. My first purchase in October was…

Sheriff Cocktail: Part 3

As the Sheriff cocktail was nearly empty, I decided that I’d spend a couple of hours finishing off removing every thing. As we saw in the previous post, a lot of additions were included in this cocktail. I’d torn out all of the PC parts (and took them to our local recycling centre today!) and…

Sheriff Cocktail: Part 2

I appreciate it’s a very long time since “Part 1” of the Sheriff cocktail blog, but I have been caught up with life (moving house, buying a house and moving house again! Plus work!). Now we’re just about settled in the new house (and after a very disappointing arcade delivery, more on that in another…

Sheriff Cocktail: Part 1

My ever growing collection of Nintendo cocktails was increased by two this last month with two, very sorry looking Sheriff cocktails. Both had had a rough life, but between the pair of them (plus a few extra parts) I should be able to resurrect one nice cabinet. The main missing part from both cocktails is…

Purchases (Aug-Sept ‘18)

I finished off my last post stating that I probably wouldn’t be able to wait until the end of September to do the next post… well, here we are. I was super excited about the final delivery that I teased in my last post as it’s something I’ve been hunting for a long time (not…

Purchases (May-Jul ’18)

I know it’s been a little while since my last ‘purchases’ post. It’s not through a lack of purchases, more a lack of time! The people that know me, know I take A LOT of photos. I started this to try and help me deal with my horrendously bad memory, but also handily gives me…

Space Fever B&W Cocktail: Part 1

This is again another 2017 purchase that I started work on, but haven’t got round to posting about (I will try to do better!). I picked up this Space Fever cocktail from a guy in North Yorkshire after a frantic eBay purchase. The cabinet was advertised as “complete and working with a small glitch”, so…
