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.
