Hi all, I'm new here and still learning the etiquette so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong spot. I'm sure it's the same for you all, but it's been in the back of my mind since I was a kid that I'd love to own a pinball machine or two one day. We've recently bought a new house and I've got the space now so here I am.
Being my first machine I wanted to ease in with something inexpensive. Looking around I found a 74 Big Ben for sale in my area for $250. According to the listing, it's in working order and has a clean playing surface. it also has all new rubber and lightbulbs. The seller says the ten point relay is stuck and that there's a small crack in the tracking plastic. Apparently, they have the replacement part for that though.
Looking on IPD it seems to have mixed reviews. It's either the worst machine ever made or a fun old school table. I was hoping to get some advice here. Thanks, everybody.
