Hi all, im a new member. I say new i have browsed this site a few years (lurked) with an interest in one day getting a machine of my own.
Held back by price, and buying an older machine facing problems etc, a recent visit to NYC specifically Modern Pinball has really reignited my want and then i notice this thread.
Is this only open to long term members, or members already owning machines? Seems a good way to trial owning a machine.
It's really intended for established an well known users of the group, Trust and care for the machine is a huge issue for anyone lending a machine or borrowing one, especially due to the Mechanical and electrical complexity and also the sheer value of the machines.
Why don't you let people know where you are based and maybe go along to a few meetings and make some local friends who have machines. Once you are known I am sure a machine will be winging it's way to you...
I have a pinball spaced hole in my games room and fancy trying something pre-DMD. I'm happy to clean / re-rubber and give some TLC to any donor game and to do the leg work. I'm based in Bucks.
How does it work, do you PM a person who has a machine? And am I reading the list correctly that just Courtney has a game up for grabs at the minute? Op Thunder looks good, but I might struggle to fit in in my games room as it has a low ceiling and can only just manage a B/W game with a small topper, like HS2.
