    Quoted from Coindork:

    I don’t think the idea is to start with the worst machine possible and restore it.
    You need to have a good canvas to create a painting.
    On the turn side a machine is only original once. I don’t think you want to take a true low play survivor or home use machine and do a ground up nuts and bolts restore.
    The answer is somewhere in the middle.

    I agree with this. I have both in my collection. I move toward low play original games with as much originality as possible when I buy. I truly believe in the original play field no matter whether the game is restored or not. The original board set matters to me also. The really nice low play examples are getting harder and harder to find especially at reasonable prices.

    I think this is correct. If the game is a total POS it requires more HEP magic.... more time fixing,plating, and etc.

    I’ve never had any communication with Chris but I would rather have a game he rebuilt no matter the amount of plays. He is building/rebuilding better than factory.

    There’s definitely a sweet spot if you are specifically looking for a candidate.
    Most of the time people aren’t .
    They already own,buy or come across a game and decide to have it done for one reason or another.
    In the case of this particular TAF Brady’s got burned on a equipment trade if I recall correctly.
    The game wasn’t in a sale able or reconditionable form for them so Jon decided to “adopt it” and turn it into something worth owning.
    I had been a customer of theirs for years and it felt great to be on the other side for a change.
    In my warehouse I had a nice solid TAFG lower that I donated to the cause to try and minimize the blow they were taking. Other than that there were no concessions or cut corners.
    Jon was thrilled with the game once completed.
    Beyond that though he was blown away by the process and just enjoyed watching it unfold.
    Having been in coin op his whole life it was still something that was unknown to him.
    After that they would send a game here every so often when they had the right customer and there would be enough margin in there for it to makes sense for them to go that route(rare trust me I know!)eventually they were bought out I believe.

    Quoted from dung:

    What does that have to do with anything i said? Nothing...

    easy there tiger, i was just saying HEP isn't cheap, and you definitely get what you pay for and more.

    thanks for the support Chris.

    Quoted from chooch:

    You're not stupid and that was the first game I ever owned. More impressive then seeing another A title done by HEP for the hundredth time. If you ever sold I would likely be one of the first to inquire since I'm stupid enough to probably buy it.

    that is why I had him do it. It was my first game purchased and brought me back to pinball AND i could now play it home whenever i wanted. I knew going in i would take a loss if i ever sold it.

    OP: sorry didnt mean to hijack your thread just offering support since it was a HEP game and I know what they are worth.

    No worries dude. Woody hijacked this before the plane even got off the ground.

    The experience of watching your game be restored is a lot of fun. Worth the money without question.

    GLWS OP, this is a gorgeous game.
