Quoted from jmountjoy111:
Ok so every once in a while I look at a pinball machine coffee table and think to myself “you know, that actually is pretty cool looking” but this is just too much. I can hear that sweet TX music slowly coming to a halt as the machine breathed its last breath. It’s a sad day for mankind
How is it any different than a bunch of populated play fields leaning against the wall in an operator's shop? At least the play field is still alive and being preserved. I have a pin that I would love to find a play field preserved like that to put in one of my pins.
It is a table because it quit working and making money for the operator. Prices were cheaper in the past like "this is junk" cheaper. There were no repro circuit boards. A coffee table saved it from the landfill or a leaky roof warehouse with mouse population making nests everywhere.
If it was leaning against a wall would that make you feel better?
