    Thanks to all who stopped by.

    Thank you for doing what you do! When my son was younger he marveled at the inner workings of pinball machines at expo, hes going to be a mechanical engineer now. I like to think what you and others do like this is what got him started in that direction. Seriously thank you!

    Quoted from cableguy918:

    Your setup was awesome, my son and nephew thoroughly enjoyed it. I did as well.
    Thank you!

    I was very impressed! Would you ever consider bringing your exhibit to the Northwest Pinball and Arcade show in June? An hour south of Seattle, in Tacoma, WA.

    Quoted from Haymaker:

    Wow that is incredibly sad to hear that there were thieves among us at the show. I hope any lost goods are recovered and the person/people responsible are held accountable and blacklisted

    Some things never change...
    Happened to me almost thirty years ago...never went back.

    We bought our first EM a month ago and just LOVED your booth. So nice to have you there!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    I'm always open to suggestion for an exhibit or repair class location. This stuff doesn't do any good in the garage.

    Weren’t you at Expo last year? There was a booth just like this one last year. For me it was the best part of last year’s show. Are you going to be at the Houston show by any chance?

    Last year was my first time ever at any pinball expo, and I was really disappointed. But that particular booth was awesome! This year seemed to be an improvement, and I’m glad to hear it.

    Quoted from DaHammer12:

    That's awful but why are people leaving their booths unattended?

    The hours for the show are pretty rough for vendors. If your a one person booth, like Brian, it's almost impossible to be there for 14 hours, 14 hour, and 16 hours on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. That's just the public hours too, not counting driving and setup. Also after dinner most people are in drinking and party mode. They aren buying much.

    Oh no! I bought things from him every year. I spoke to him briefly, and thanked him for carrying on.

    Check out the huge variety of pinball machines that were at the Pinball Expo this year. This was a fun video to edit and re-watch.

    Finally setup my TOTAN today after having it folded up since Expo. In case you're curious how many plays a popular title gets at a multi-day show, the count is 516. It was available to play from Wednesday afternoon until the power strips were taken away on Sunday, minus a bit of downtime for a ball that somehow got stuck in the vanishing magnet mech or the tunnel, can't recall.

    Let's do it again in 10 months!

    Hey that's a nice TOTAN! I made the mistake of only playing it a couple times before it got busy - wanted my wife to play it, but every time we walked by there was damn near a line! Thanks for bringing it!

    It was awesome, I played it maybe 12 times. On the want list. Thanks for bringing.

    I did my best to keep the glass clean! (was a volunteer)

    Please bring it back next year!

    I thought the show was much better that last year.
