Quoted from tankpinball:
I just don't understand how can pinheads on this site afford one? People at my school think I have a pin, but I currently won't get one unless my family says so. But after I save up for a car I will try to save up for a pinball machine.
My first pinball machine cost me $100. It didn’t work at all and was an EM no one wanted. Was almost a year before I got another one. Trust me, you’ll appreciate any game you get. Just keep your eyes peeled, buy a turd and polish it up.
