For my very first post I want to know about your favourite places to look for that next pin. I bought my first (TAF) on eBay. Not wanting to repeat that experience, the others were found through retailers... probably a safer bet for a newbie. My MM did come from a fellow collector, but he was on the other side of the country.
Living in Toronto, with very limited local stock available, and being relatively new to the hobby, I've had to buy my machines exclusively from photos... and probably payed a premium for them in the process.
Now, I think I've paid my dues and I've been looking really hard for a nice WH2O without much luck (yes this is also a WTB post). So, I can choose to pay $4-$5K for an unrestored machine, or I gotta find a better way.
So, laugh if you will, but I want to hear from you all (without divulging too many trade secrets), where is your favourite place to find pins...and at prices that I can only seem to find quoted by people on these forums? Show me the (trans)light!
