Re: Anyone Own Or Have Owned A Pinball Machine?
I own three pinball machines. They are great for both adults and kids.
As a new owner, before you buy any machine, I would go to mr. pinball clasifieds and see how much the machine is selling for to get the right price.
As far as repairs, the older machines, known as electro-mechanical machines, as the easiest and cheapest to repair. Basically any machine 1978 and older is electro mechanical.
The 80's machines are not bad to repair, but finding parts can sometimes be a problem. The 90s and newer machines involves computer circuit boards and such... they are amazing to play, but I dont think I would ever want to fix one myself.
