    Quoted from SeanLind:

    People who own broken machines make me so very angry. I want a machine more than you can imagine, but with the prices these days being so stupid it's not even close to being possible. Yet there are people with beautiful machines out there, neglected because you refuse to fix them. Fix them, play them, or sell them to someone who will for a fair price!

    My major local operator (which I am still thankful for) doesn't treat his pins too well. It's as if he doesn't even want to make money. His T2 has had an almost-dead left flipper for the longest time and won't fix it. Had a pretty good Scared Stiff near my work that I played every other lunch time but that has since been swapped for a tired Congo that is simply shameful. So dark and dirty and the right flipper is aligned so poorly it sits way too low — a left ramp shot requires aiming at the skill shot target bank. Doesn't seem to want any money put in those pins at all. Oh, and he puts lightening flippers on all his pins.

    In contrast a couple of smaller operators keep their pins in great condition and they charge more per play. I prefer those pins for sure.
