Can't wait. What is the age range for a kids ticket? I couldn't find it on the site. Thanks.
Quoted from hawkeyexx:Allan is a great guy and has been helpful to me, as well. I was looking to buy my third pin at the show and paid Allan a few bucks to inspect the pin I was interested in buying. Allan was methodical in reviewing the machine from top to bottom and recommended the purchase, while letting me know about some things that could go wrong with the specific machine (F-14) and approximate costs. Highly recommended.
Maybe someone can help people with some good advice at the show that is looking to buy their first pin. I remember going last year wanting to buy my first pin. The pin I wanted to purchase needed work and the ball would get jammed up behind the target drops. After playing few times and talking with the owner I decided to wait and purchase a pin that did not need work because I had no idea where to purchase parts and if I could make the repairs. I will say it's been difficult to meet people that are willing to help when you have questions about repairing pinball machines. After asking people about who repairs pinball machines I was able to find out about Allan Davidson at Ardvark pinball repairs. Allan is very passionate about repairing pinball machines. He has always given me great advice and if there is value in my purchase. Now that I have spent a year learning pinball machines and doing tons of research I feel I'm confident when I look at a used machine I know what I'm looking at. Happy Friday everyone
