I had not really thought about this until a few days ago. Is lead paint something to worry about with pinball machines? I'm not talking about restoring them, I feel like that's a no-brainer, if you are sanding any pin you should do it outside with a mask, take all precautions. I'm just wondering about buying anything older and putting it in your house. I know it was banned for home use in 1978, but not for commercial products. I only have a MET Pro in my collection, so I'm not too concerned right now, but thinking about getting a Stargate again someday since I enjoyed it and was wondering if Gottlieb used lead based paints. Any thoughts on this?
