    Top 100 buying regrets list.

    Here's 3

    Major board hacks and damage. (How did I not see that?)

    Or that half the machine was kept together by JB Weld. (I really need to remember my glasses)

    Or you buy a nice pin and then while you're home still glowing from the successful and remarkably low priced pick, you see his new ad on CL for his other machine. You know ~ The Grail Pin he didn't tell you about... while you were in his house... buying his other machine... talking nonstop about every pinball there is except about his other table. The one he keeps or kept in his dining room not the basement... Well not anymore

    I hate when they look good in the basement and then after you pay for them and drag them up 12 or 14 steps and get them outside and you see all the issues. No one ever seems to have good lighting when I buy a machine and since we sell them in the garage every little defect jumps out at you when we are trying to sell one!

    I can't tell you how many times I have driven home thinking "why the hell did I buy this".

    Thankfully we always seem to find a few nice machines that make up for some of the "junk" I have brought home.

    Bought my 3rd Fish Tales and as I am parked in my driveway admiring my new pin I call a buddy to brag about my great find and he ask is there a topper? How can you miss the topper on Fish Tales! Felt like an asshole!!!
