    Hello Fellow Pinheads

    I am starting to amass a collection of old pinballs and was curious if anyone has any art ideas for their gamerooms that incorporate old pinballs. I was thinking of something like those art style pictures with wine corks.

    I have seen one gameroom do an old gumball machine full of pinballs that looked really cool. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Thats a good idea, melt them down and do something else with them. Not too much into knives though.

    Can't find my pictures but I stole the idea from the Game Room topic and put a bunch in a gumball machine.

    Thanks for the ideas, I do like the gumball machine idea but I have seen that one.

    I'm surprised a pinball parts supplier doesn't accept replaced pinballs for re-manufacture.

    I print and sell various sizes and shapes (square and triangle pyramids - you supply the balls). PM for details if interested.

    I've got quite a few pins from the 1950's and earlier.
    Any open wall space is populated with old pinups.
    An excellent book is "The Great American Pinup".
    Get that and make color copies of your faves, put
    them in a frame. Fits right in with the pinball BG artwork.

    There are at least two editions of this book, the first has
    fewer pics but much larger size and better for making copies.

    Also have jukes and classic arcade video games. Cocktail
    vids are best as they don't take up room a pin could fit in.
