Do you love restoring pinballs? Is resurrecting a pinball machine bound for the dumpster one of your life's missions? Maybe you just love a bargain or can't afford those 'nicer' pins. Whatever the reason, this is the hangout to post project machines you have found or any that you have for sale.
Project pinball machines listed on Pinside, CL, eBay or all others with contact information appropriate.
There are no set rules for this thread, other than those prescribed by Pinside, but please follow these guidelines:
Please be courteous and thank/upvote the original poster if you find the post helpful. Please list Manufacturer, game name/type, year, cost and location in the pinball machine in the post. And, of course, post a link or contact information. Please also add any major defects/problems or major positives.
There are other threads for 'nice' pinball machines. Please post the nicer pins there:
Some nice looking EM classics just came up on CL
Some nice looking EM classics just came up on ebay
Some nice looking early SS classics just came up on the Interwebs
My hope is that project pinballs can find a good home with a Pinsider who will treat it with the care and respect that these old works of art and mechanical magnificence deserve.
If you only want to post a link, do so - only guidelines here. But please be aware that any additional information you can add will save others from clicking a link to a trashed machine they have no interest in.
As always Caveat Emptor! Be careful out there!
Go get 'EM guys and gals!
