The space that holds my machines, is in transition- once again.
This summer, some of the machines will be back in position, and I
plan on showing the maintenance that needs to be done.
It's taken roughly 15 years, to gain 80% of the knoledge- on how these
things work. The machines i collect are pre circuit board, My machines are
EM's (electro Mechanical) They work on stepper units and switches, and a few miles
of wire.



This was my last machine i bought, this one was always on my list.
One became available 4 years ago down in San Diego, the deal i struck with my other half
was, when i want another machine- I have to get rid of one.
So i sold one of my machines to the skipper,  down at the Mister Freedom shop
I offered my machine to Christophe first- turns out, back in his picker days-
he bought and sold the same machine i sold him, for his shop.

Not necessarily relevant,and certainly not in the same league but if we're talking pinball tables in general, I have an early 90's Data East Star wars table I picked up some years ago. Sadly I rarely get the chance to play it these days and the display needs a refurb/fix.

I remember back on the old thread- that’s a good pin
Some of the best ones, came out of the 80’s and 90’s

There were some great ones. My faves were Doctor Who, & Adams Family- or at least they were the ones in my local pubs.

I believe Adams Family, is considered one of the best ones ever made.

Earthshaker is a good one, A place called Walt's bar in Eagle Rock- had Earthshaker when I last visited. Great place to visit when your in Los Angeles CSL
Its a beer\ wine and pinball bar, has a real chill vibe, and killer pretzels Too.
