    I know mine. What are yours?

    #2 38 days ago

    “It’s a coffee table!”

    #3 38 days ago

    These are so boring

    #4 38 days ago

    Termites.

    #5 38 days ago

    Way too slow!

    #6 38 days ago

    No words, user shakes head in disgust and walks away.

    #7 38 days ago

    Do you have anything with ramps?

    #8 38 days ago

    Don't you like the newer machines?

    Steve Young retired, moved to Boca, bought the penthouse condo and took up shuffleboard.

    Sincere question - what’s the most “interesting” / complex EM?

    I vote for Cleopatra EM: variable drop target value, bonus only for matching drop color with rollover color, quite complex for an EM

    Of the more modern era of EMs, I'd think maybe Fireball or any other multiball EM would be a good contender.

    But lately, I've really been digging older woodrails. They really experimented with their designs, and gobble holes can be a lucrative hoot. Check out some of Harry William's designs back then. He was designing in ramps before it was cool.

    Something along the lines of the following:

    "Just got this old pin in, many parts are available now!"

    #15 38 days ago

    "Mermaid? Oh,we put that old thing out on the curb last week".

    #16 38 days ago

    Seller: I have a complete Gottlieb Kings & Queens I'm parting out.

    Onlooker: You Don't have to, Wade Krauss has new playfields available right now.

    Seller: Not interested, I'm parting it out, it's what I do.

    #17 38 days ago

    I’m going to put all LEDs in it!

    Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

    Like that knucklehead in Alabama or wherever it was who parted out a perfectly beautiful Bally "Hay-Ride" a few years ago.

    #19 38 days ago

    Where’s Vid1900?

    Sad words for all pin fans.

    Complex-Grand Prix

    #21 38 days ago

    Who is older, you or the pinball machine?

    #23 38 days ago

    “Sorry we don’t make reproduction plastics for that game”

    Quoted from Sea_Wolf:

    Let's watch the movie Tommy.

    #25 38 days ago

    I cleaned all the stepper rivets by sanding them flat.

    #26 38 days ago

    I just sprayed contact cleaner on everything to try to get it working. And greased up all the plungers. And other moving parts.

    #27 38 days ago

    “Where’s the ball save?”

    #28 38 days ago

    I don't know how long those mice have been in there.

    Oh I didn't know those unplugged, so I just just cut all the wires

    I played this one for the first time over the weekend at ZapCon and thought it was really neat.

    It has some really cool features like a ball lock so you can get a multi-ball, as well as zipper flippers.

    Besides, who doesn't like dinosaurs.

    “I just WD40’d all switches, relays and your score motor so she should run just fine now”

    #33 38 days ago

    "only good enough to put on fire"....

    #34 38 days ago

    Not really words, but I'm always amazed at the number of people selling an older pin on craigslist or ebay, etc. who want to show off that they have the $20 manual that you can order brand new, and the way they invariably illustrate that they have the super common manual for the game is they take a picture of it lying on the lower playfield glass.... obstructing the only part of the entire machine that you're super interested in seeing a picture of.

    #35 38 days ago

    I couldn’t figure out how to remove the top part so I had to cut the wires to move it. Should just take some soldering to get it running again.

    #36 38 days ago

    "........ I touched up the playfield myself!"

    And:

    "....A new ball and rubbers easily add $100 to the price." (a seller actually told this to me.)

    We found this in Dad’s basement, it wasn’t working. Just a little WD-40 and it’s running like a champ now!!

    #38 37 days ago

    'Definitely no more-we cannot move in the house now'!

    #39 37 days ago

    "You're not getting another pinball machine." - my wife

    #40 37 days ago

    I didn't know the backbox wires unplugged so I just cut them.

    #41 37 days ago

    O-Din deactivated himself a third time and is now locked out forever

    #42 37 days ago

    Parting it out

    #43 37 days ago

    That thing looks as old and clunky as you do

    #44 37 days ago

    "One EM is enough..." - from my wife

    #45 37 days ago

    Will you take 250?
    "These things are like cars, you always lose money." You cant expect to get your money back out of it".

    #46 37 days ago

    Had a guy tell me not long ago that he gave a game to his brother in law and when he moved he left the game in the basement.I asked him what game it was and he said he couldn't remember but it had boxing men in the middle of the pf.ouch.

    #47 37 days ago

    "No low-ballers, I KNOW what these things are worth, I seen one on eBay sell for $5000 once!"

    Dang gum-it!

    It was easy to repaint the whole cabinet one solid color with a roller
