    Hello Pinside Community,

    I am looking to get into this hobby and purchase my first pin. In making this decision I am interested in learning what it takes to maintain and fix common problems with pins. I have a small amount of experience soldering and using meters and anticipate needing to brush up on these in order to own and maintain my own game.

    My question is are there and great resources out there I can use to learn the basic skills needed to enter this hobby. I am certain a lot of the learning will take place once I have my pin but hoping to learn the core basics before then. Anything you can recommend?

    Thanks so much

    Kevin
