    Half of the pins I've had were longterm loaned to me with the promise of fixing and shopping them. Turns out lots of people were willing to take me up on that offer.
    Other times I have used a low-interest line of credit to buy a machine and then slowly pay it off over months. This has been very low-risk since pins are basically a liquid asset around here.

    Quoted from NightTrain:

    I have bought, fixed, and sold, to own my collection for right around zero dollars. I have a whole excel spreadsheet with every bought and sold price. As well as all parts bought.

    Same! What # are you at? I just got game #32 on to the sheet.
