Yes, inflation and pinflation both are no bueno. I'm new to the hobby, so it's rough for me to justify spending as much money as I would spend on a used car, to buy a pinball machine. Right now we have 1 machine, from 1980, that has cost us about $1,500 to get up and running well.
The addiction has set in. A second pinball machine will happen. It's just a matter of how much I can justify spending to myself and to my wife.
Right now we are spending $22,000 on a new roof, gutters, and trim for our house. Yes, inflation has jumped that cost up as well.
Boo COVID-19. Boo Congress. Politicians are no bueno.
Anybody have an Apollo 13 they want to unload for pre-stimulus prices? We are working on an outer space theme to our pinball collection.
