Welcome to the Twilight Zone.
Quoted from PappyBoyington:
How did you get around the youtube copyright song policy? I just had a radio playing in the background while I took a video of my game room and youtube banned it.
crap....I didn't think about that. Maybe Golden Earring thought it was a cool video and called off the YouTube cops.
Quoted from Riffbear:
Just wow… Can only dream of ever owning that many!!
How do you take the glass off with the pins being so close in facing one another?
best collection I've ever seen..
Thanks for the kind words. Believe it or not, only a few machines require special arrangements to get the glass off.
I love the evolution of game rooms theme going on in this thread.
They don't call it an addiction for nothing.
Quoted from BigB:
Xfassa-- Wow! That's just amazing! One day my collection will mimic the size and scope of yours! Looks like the only thing that you're missing is a really nice Space Shuttle! Have you looked around for one?
Sorry! That's just plain wrong of me! Had to ask though!

BigB - Your Space Shuttle is going to look great in my basement someday.

Thanks for all the kind (and funny comments). I very much appreciate all the thumbs up too! Over the last several years I have met a bunch of great people in this hobby (especially the Pinsiders). Some pretty great stories/memories behind the pickup of each of these machines. It really helps when you have a supportive wife that is into the hobby (and the best player in the house). For me, I enjoy the restoration process.
Just remember, it only takes one machine to make an awesome collection. Thanks again.
Quoted from Richthofen:
You must be incredibly good at Tetris. How the heck do you get the games out?!?
It does feel like Tetris at times. When I need room, I take a few and fold up vertically. After folding them up, you can use those Harbor Freight hardwood dollies to easily roll them around.
Quoted from twoplays25c:
Kudos to you, Sir - nicely done!
May I seriously ask how you power all that?
Do you have dedicated separate 40amp lines in each wall, or what?
is there a dedicated master breaker panel(s) or some such so everything keeps-a-runnin'?
Or, are you on the Utility Company Friends & Family Plan?
8 separate lines to the basement, no dedicated master panel. Honestly, only a few times a year everything is turned on.
Quoted from AUKraut:
My wife watched this over my shoulder.....the words out of her mouth: "He must not be married"......
Family and friends are into the hobby. I enjoy restoring and they enjoy playing. I am very fortunate.
My wife not only is a good player, she makes some pretty fantastic mods too. Check out post #8801 in the following thread.
Quoted from rollinover:
Awesome lineup and game room
Question how do you get the glass off running games that tight? Do you lift the pin up and remove them for service ?
Again very epic lineup and nice choice of arcades
Believe it or not the gap between the machines is just enough to get the glass off. Not a problem.
