You're yelling at the wrong operators. Most of the operators than I know of here do a good job of maintaining their games. I regularly get compliments on my location games. If you're ever near Sunnyvale Cal, stop by Pizza Depot on Duane ave. I won't make any promises, but I like your chances.
Quoted from Av8:
Mine too high? No your standards are just to low. If the flippers are sticking or have no rubber the game is dead. Players remember lost money and bad pinball experience just will not come back. Broken machines KILL the industry like a cancer.
Again, what good does it do to complain here? If you can't get an operator to properly clean or maintain his or her games, talk to the business owner. Business owners always want to hear how they can make more money. If talking to the owner doesn't work, don't patronize the business and don't encourage others to. When you find good a good location, feel free to let us all know here. Whining here about operators in a town thousands of miles away from where you live accomplishes nothing.
If you did indeed give parts to an op, thank you. Nice contribution to the hobby. I don't take donations outside the coin slots, but I probably should.
