I'm a bit obsessed with fixing up old machines. I'm located in Plano, TX and have machines I've either picked up or had sent to me from all over. Part of the fun is going on a pin hunt and driving to pick up a new project. I'm ALWAYS on the look out for new projects even if I have more than I probably need.
I try not to flip machines. I've sold a few that my kids have decided we didn't need and of course I tend to have to sell one when I start working on another project since my wife is completely against me opening a museum or putting pins in our bedroom...Imagine that... Other than that she is extremely supportive and likes playing them too.
Currently I have about 30 machines on legs and either working or being worked on. These occupy my garage, and part of our livingroom.
