    I'm looking for someone who is interested in doing a temporary pinball trade of at least a month. I'd like to try some other games, open to all offers, but I'd like to try some Sterns I haven't played - which is a lot. Hoping someone else has a pin that they want to keep, but would like to try another game for a bit.

    I have a sweet Mustang Pro that's modded and has a custom soundtrack that I'd temp trade.

    Also have a Big Hurt with "stadium" style lights so it's nice and bright and it's a fun game. I'd temp trade this one for a pin of the same era/value.

    For the right game I'd even temp trade the modded Metallica Pro I have for sale. An Aerosmith Pro would be ideal.

    Ideally we'd each do one dropoff/pickup to make it fair with our driving time/gas.

    This is a great idea! I wish more people would be willing to do this. I've purchased a machine from PoMC. Great guy to deal with.

    Requires a lot of trust, but I like the idea.

    Good luck, maybe it'll catch on.

    Great idea, wish I was closer. I hate moving pins, my least favorite part of the hobby

    This is great, I have a temp trade lined up next weekend for Metallica - just giving the for sale ad to run thru the coming week - and if not sold then we will both have a new game to enjoy for a bit.

    Bumping. I have both a sale and a temp trade lined up for Metallica.

    Looking for any interest in a local temp trade for my Mustang Pro.

    Agree... The worst part is the 8 steps out of my basement. Gravity helps on the way in.

    Quoted from RonSS:

    That doesn't seem hard - both parties have skin in the game and are sufficiently co-located to make the swap work, so a handshake and a simple handwritten note describing the exchange timing and who retains ownership of what is all that should be needed.

    I probably could match something up with the Big Hurt, but shunning the move combined with timing that makes game playing time scarce combine to keep me on the sidelines. Timing? TPF is just 7 weeks away; Allentown is 6 weeks after that! I might go to the Northwest show 2 weeks after Allentown... time to make the daughterboards...

    Hi, my wife and I will be at Allentown too, so let's touch base when it's closer and see what we have to temp trade then.

    Bumping - may have a Mustang trade worked out in Allentown, but that's still a few months away.

    Looking for someone interested in a temporary trade of Mustang for the next month or so.
