Thanks for all the pointers guys.
Hey since this kinda went a second direction I didn't anticipate, anyone in the Edmonton area who wants to get in on some casual playing/tinkering/bs'ing and perhaps the odd beverage, shoot me a message with your email and ill make sure you're included on anything our tiny but growing group is up to. It's time we had a stronger pinball community here! And by stronger I don't mean playing well - I know I don't haha
Started off with me and one guy meeting at pinburgh by chance, now we're up to 5 guys and something like 20-30 machines between all of us. Most machines even work haha
