Welcome Bob, I was your way the other week getting a Lost world running is that a neighbour of yours?Hello from Pembrokeshire,
My name is Bob, I'm 67 and have been playing pinball since the 60s. Until recently, I thought that, owning a pinball machine was just a pipe dream. Now I am in a position I haven't been in for many years (more money coming in than going out) , plus I have loads of space and there's no one to tell me I can't.
I don't really have a preference for which machine I get, I figure I can get used to anything by now (maybe, after a while, I'll start to be a bit selective but , right now, I'm keen to get something). Only 'must have' for me is that it is working (I'd like to cut my teeth maintaining a working machine rather than jump straight in on a project).
Talking of buying a machine, I saw somewhere that there is a buyer's guide under one of the threads. I presume that covers what to look for and what questions to ask, does it also cover the buying sequence? By that I mean is it something like that seller posts, buyer replies, then PM to do the negotiation, etc. At what stage does the money change hands (assuming it is not being picked up in person?) On this last point, I see lots of mentions of Martin, I presume he is the specialist transport, does he cover West Wales? Questions, questions, questions.... I have got loads, Is there a FAQ that I can browse? I'm sure the info I'm looking for is already available but there is so much information here it will take me an age to find out. I'd rather be getting on with making a purchase...)
Apologies for the waffle
I’m waiting on 2 of my machines to be bought ( junkyard and Roadshow ) in the next week or so if it falls through I will let you know if you are interested.
The amount of miles I’ve clocked up picking machines up is unreal but worth it. Small price to pay living in Pembrokeshire
