I had to move pinball machines by myself a lot. So I created these.

I moved this pin2k Revenge From Mars into my house by myself in the middle of the night while my wife was sleeping. Heavy sob! 350lbs.

I used super sliders, small wheel dollies under each leg and my pin posts.

Pin Posts = Cut heavy 4 x 4 PVC Fence post. 1 or 2 inches taller then base of pin. You need two sets. The back is higher due to tilt. These are light and easy to store.

Lean post against front or back of pin. Lift pin. Post will fall into position under pin. Use 2 for stability.

Hope this helps.

These work really well. I need to cut a piece for the rear legs for mine. http://www.pinballnews.com/learn/pinballjack/index.html
