Starting in Pinball

Got started in the hobby 10 years ago. Saw a swap sheet ad for 3 machines a Bally Supersonic, Stern Meteor and Williams Tri-Zone. The only one that worked was the Supersonic. Bought all three for $600 bucks and took them home. At the time I worked second shift maintenance so I took in the boards in the Meteor and worked on them in my free time. After rebuilding the power supply board it worked! It was a great feeling and I still enjoy fixing and repairing as much as playing. Anyway put the games in storage for about 7 years at my parents and once I got a big enough place for them they brought them back to me and I have been hooked for good this time. Currently have 5 machines and room to grow if I can convince my better half.
