Like many here, when I was younger I stuck mostly to video games. Even when I got nostalgic and started building a home arcade, I started with the video games first. As an offshoot of this, I began to play emulated pinball tables. I then quickly realized that I really missed playing pinball! Fast forward a couple of years and I am completely obsessed with pinball machines (and with Pinside). I have also recently discovered that that I LOVE restoring these machines and Pinside has been a source of so much valuable information for this. Thanks to all those folks that have helped me out so far and I look forward to continuing in this hobby for many years to come!
