    Terry at pinball life is a guy. He was able to take items out of several different boxes, place them in another box and then send that box to my house for a reasonable fee.

    post of the year

    No duh that is what this country was founded on. Finding a need and filling it as you so eloquently described.

    #5 7 years ago

    It's another Festivus Miracle!

    I got a package from terry today in the same fashion! Stupendously amazing!

    #7 7 years ago

    Terry is the bestest at plucking pinball parts from boxes and putting them into other boxes, and then putting those boxes into the mail to send to all the pinball fans out there.. hip hip hooray

    Sidenote on Terry: If you look up the LED bulbs (ablaze), they have the same phone number as pinball life:
    http://www.ablazelighting.com/index.php?page=contact-us

    I'm assuming this is the name he imports them under? None-the-less, he gets them for the least amount of money. If you look for ablaze from any other website, they are more, probably because they buy from Terry

    Hey, let's not oversimplify this process. He unloads boxes into bins, THEN places items from the bins into your box. And....the last box I got was marked from Margaret.

    #9 7 years ago

    Terry is great, but Margaret is much prettier.

    #10 7 years ago

    and more wild.

    #11 7 years ago

    Thought this was going to be a post about the discovery of a new life form .

    #13 7 years ago

    In fact Margaret just took care of me this evening

    And all this time I thought he was a girl

    Quoted from trilogybeer:

    Could have been worse, at least he didn't title it "Pinball life lives."

    i'm blown away, never thought it was possible

    Happy Festivus Kim....

    Thanks man. I hope Terry (Pinball Life) slides down your chimney this Christmas.

    **whispering**

    I heard Terry once parachuted into the Han River during the Tet Offensive of 1968 to deliver a shipment of powdercoated lockdown bars and rubber cleaner to a platoon of mercenaries, only to then disappear into the shadows...

    ...or so the legend goes.

    #20 7 years ago

    Thanks for clearing that up! I always suspected that guys are better at putting things in boxes.

    *Old thread bump*

    I once witnessed her do a running start leap onto someones back while that person was engaged in a game of pinball. It was amaze balls.

    #22 5 years ago

    I was serviced by Margaret today but I learned about it by email...

    #23 5 years ago

    You know all of the things they say about Chuck Norris? That goes double for Terry from Pinball Life. True.

    #24 5 years ago
    Quoted from PinChicago:

    You know all of the things they say about Chuck Norris? That goes double for Terry from Pinball Life. True.

    He doesn't sell lockdown bars, he just sells bars (they lock themselves down)

    He once was accused of not specifying spring strength by color, the thread closed itself

    You know why he calls his LED's ablaze? Put enough of them in your GI, your playfield will catch fire

    You know that one part you forgot on your order? He already went a day into the future to retrieve your email and added it to your order, you're welcome

    #25 5 years ago

    sometimes you also get freebies in your order like stickers or pens

    #26 5 years ago
    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    ^^

    You know those non-ghosting LEDs you love so much?

    Who the hell do you think gets rid of all the ghosts?!?

    #27 5 years ago

    Terry from Pinball Life and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants. True.

    #28 5 years ago

    Chuck Norris does not always order pinball parts and supplies.
    But when he does; he orders from Pinball Life.

    #29 5 years ago
    Quoted from PinChicago:

    Terry from Pinball Life and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants. True.

    And Superman had to start working at Pinball Life, which many believe is the reason orders get filled so quickly.

    If you order from a different vendor, Terry can tilt all your machines from up to 3,000 miles away...using only his mind.

    #31 5 years ago

    Terry is a great parts sell. Too bad he doesn't have EVERY part ever made.

    #32 5 years ago
    Quoted from Don44:

    Terry is a great parts seller. Too bad he doesn't have EVERY part ever made.

    If Terry from Pinball Life doesn't stock it, YOU DON'T NEED IT.

    Also, he came to my house once to play pinball. He beat the grand champion score and then I realized his hands were behind his back the whole time and I had forgotten to put balls back in the machine.

    #33 5 years ago

    Terry is a great parts seller for sure but I do agree with Don44. I wish he had more selection.

    Quoted from exflexer:

    Smart business man...stock parts that move constantly. I know he doesn't sell it all but I bet very few items have dust on them.

    And he gladly will trade you green backs for parts as well.

    Quoted from HOOKED:

    I can say from experience that if he doesn't stock it he will do his best to get it for you. By all accounts he seems like one of the good guys and a great supporter of this hobby. I don't know much about Margaret but I am always glad to get the email confirming the shipment of my order from her.

    #37 5 years ago

    I've seen Terry pick and pack an order, well, not exactly, he is standing next to you, he becomes a blur for a second, and then he is standing next to you with your order ready to go.

    Like the flash?

    #40 5 years ago

    I like the drawings I receive from Jovee with my orders

    #41 5 years ago

    Jovee is the backbone of the whole operation

    #42 5 years ago

    You guys totally forgot about PBL's mind-boggling baggie assortment. There's a perfect bag for every part. Ziploc capital of the world. Terry could be the next Heisenberg.

    Someone's gotta hold that place together and keep king terry in check.

    are you certain of that?

    I'm just barely smart enough to get that. Well bowled.

    #46 5 years ago

    And in discussing Pinball Life, let us not forget about the Fantastic Mr. Fox who is known as Mike to some...

    exactly, except he does not wear the red unitard

    #49 5 years ago

    Terry is awesome, but I think BangerJay could take him!

    #50 5 years ago

    You could take 'em both, He-Man!
