Bride available for loan for around 6 months . No sound at moment so really needs to go to someone technically . Have original and spare sound board to try. It went quite during play blackpool where admittedly it was cranked up . Everything else working fine including head.

Collect from electric circus Birmingham b33
Probably just an amplifier issue I would imagine mate, do not think its a hard fix @steve brum

These are the rules I have quickly come up with and an very open to change these as requested.

Keeping the machine in good clean order is the responsibility of the borrower.

Proof of residence and offline contact details should be provided / ID etc should be provided by the borrower.

Minor faults are the responsibility of the borrower.

Accidental Damage is the responsibility of the borrower

The individual terms of each machine can be worked out between the lender and the borrower

Natural wear and tear and failures, parts should be covered by the lender but could be fitted by the borrower.

Loan machines that are loaned for the purpose of restoration works - all parts will be paid for by the lender.

It is suggested that a photographic record is kept of the general condition of the machine at the point it is collected by the borrower to alleviate disputes later.

The main reason for this is so we can have a lot of fun playing machines we either couldn't afford to buy or to help out another member who doesn't have the space. Please respect others property accordingly... These are *NOT* cheap toys.

In the case of theft or serious damage not caused by natural wear and tear then all costs and repairs will be covered by the borrower.

If you are not a technical person and something goes wrong, no worries there is going to be someone local to you that will only be too glad to help you for a good mug of coffee and a sandwich, especially if the person you loaned the machine from isn't local.

Transport is the responsibility of the borrower unless otherwise arranged. Just be reasonable, offer fuel money if you are having one delivered. Use a courier if needed, there are a few that specialise in Pinballs.

Most of all use common sense and be honest.

Hi I’m new here. I would appreciate any advice on pinballs to buy please. Although the idea of loan also appeals to me. I live in the Essex area. Thank you in advance. Warran.

Any technically minded interested in long term loan of my Genesis. It was working perfectly for over a year but after changing some flash bulbs it looks like the switch matrix has been shorted as when you press the start button it now goes into test! We have so many projects on the go it will just sit in the corner but I can't bear to sell it as it's so much fun . It's an 80b game so more for the hardcore lol . Happy for it to be on loan for a year plus . Can be collected from electric circus Birmingham B33 .

I decided I'm too attached to it . Genesis was the 8th game I bought when it was only 3 years old and I enjoyed that onr for 5 years so was glad to get one back last year. Making tough choices at moment but Genesis now staying albeit on loan
