Quoted from Trib:

Plus if I had a quarter for every time I was told a pin was fully functional

So true. I have bought *a lot* of machines over the last 20+ years, and I have never bought one that was 100%. Even the new ones need tweaks.

One thing I have noticed (and I'm not implying it is the case here at all!!! Just worth noting...) is that a lot of new guys in the hobby expect a pinball machine to be like a new 50" TV .. unwrap it and plug it in, and you'll have 10 years of trouble free enjoyment. Not the case, as they soon learn.

Quoted from krivoap:

I haven't tried using a power inverter given my luck with blowing a few fuses running a few things in the past, but I have run a couple of pinballs off of a small portable generator

Yep, small generator runs an Attack From Mars, no problems.

Quoted from Crash:

UPS would be perfect for a game, just be sure it can handle the load.

That's what she said.

Quoted from Stack15:

In my face! Flintstones had a long trip!

True!! Around 12,000 miles, via the Panama Canal.

And it did go 99% sweetly too!! One of the best I've bought. Almost plug and play (after I converted the voltage...) My wife's favorite machine. Ahhh the glory days of 88 US cents to the kiwi dollar. Now it's 65c. Sucks!!

Great trade with the StackMan!
