Hi Octamussy, you need to donate a tenner (or more) to be able to post for sale /wanted ads. Good luck finding one.

Hi, where on the east coast are you? I grew up in/around Skeggy, so know the area reasonably well. Not there now though!

Hello, Tim,

I take it you refer to the recent Kiss pinball, rather than the early Bally solid-state game, which while it was above average for the time, isn't really comparable. Especially for audio.

Hi Jay... Didn't even know there was an earlier version so yeah, I was talking about the Stern one :)

Hi All,
New member, looking for my first table. Have a few arcade cabs already.
Based in South Wales, ideally looking for a 90s DMD table as my first (other than a mini vpin I built before for a bit of fun).

Hiya

My name is Ash and have been lurking around for a week or so ;) I used to love pinball when I was a kid, growing up at the seaside it was great when the arcades opened in spring and it was time to get the change pots out of hibernation and get down to the sea front.

During lockdowns, I've been trying to keep my 11 year old girl sane and we started making retro arcade machines and later ventured into a bespoke virtual pin built on an old laptop. To say we were both hooked would be an understatement. We have now roped in grandad to help with cabinet making and I have learnt to solder. All of this has added up to us now building a second half size virtual pin machine, however the bug had fully bitten and we started looking at some early em machines on eBay.

Thank goodness we found you guys. Reading through this forum I have learnt so much and resisted the temptation to spend too much money on some bags of bones!

Welcome,
Having read the gibberish on here, you're now in a position to spend too much cash on something really great😁 and then start planning for your second 🤣

Hi all, not sure if I’ve posted before, been lurking around for some time now while I learn more about buying / owning a pin. I’m in west Mids and half way through building a new man cave to house all the toys. Also passionate about old vw’s (I own a 65 splitscreen and a 56 westfalia funeral trailer) started the man cave during lock down, but it took me months to dog footings out in rock solid clay, so it’s dragged on a bit. I’m now up to damp and should get concrete floor done in next few weeks. Not bad for a none builder lol. Anyway, just wanted to say hi before all my questions pour in.
