My name is Bart, 47 years and based in Holland. I just purchased my 5th pinball machine in time. 3 I still own. I have some experience in fixing machines, but this is more luck than wisdom I think ;-) and the repairs that succeeded ae mostly smaller ones. But hey, you have to start somewhere right?
Owned several older Bally and Gottlieb machines. Now I have: Gottlieb Haunted House (1982), Bally Special Force (1986) and an EM Bally Night Rider (1976).
I like trying to improve and fix the games. My kids enjoy the games as well, so it's a lot of fun.
