The recent thread about moving to a new house to support your pinball habit got me thinking about my least favorite part of pinball... getting a machine out of my basement.
I now own an escalera, but even that is a precarious endeavor on these stairs. The angle is somehow wrong and the extra lip and step down at the top just makes it a pain. Being a split second and a timely hand from my son to avoid riding a JY down like Major Kong still gives me the shakes. I know I would own and cycle more pins if I did not feel like I was risking dismemberment and destruction just transporting a game those few feet.
Since moving is unlikely, I started contemplating crazy alternatives like removing the stairs and putting in a ramp, diy elevator or scissor lift.
Anyone have any experience with alternative methods or suggestions forgetting a pinball machine to climb a 90" wall to freedom?
