I grew up where my next-door neighbor was an operator and had an amusement game route. So not only was I playing pinball at his house I always had one in my house. When I was in high school, I worked for my neighbor moving pinballs. I used to watch his technician repair the games and was fascinated with his ability. That triggered my career as an electrical engineer. I have been repairing pinballs for over 40 years and also ran an amusement game route for 10 years.
