There's an old electro-mechanical pinball table that's being auctioned off, starting at $100. How high should a lover of EMs go? I've never bought a RL machine before, and I've never bid for one before. And I know nothing about repairing one.
The seller says "The back scoring glass appears to be hand painted and not original. This unit has been under our carport for several years. Has surface rust and fading. Plugged it in a few weeks ago. It lights up but only 1 flipper seems to be working now. Have had it running on singles only as I didn't know how to hotwire past the coin mech to get doubles going. Will need a lot of work to tidy and get it into good running order again."
