    Do you use the space under your pins for storage? If so, what items do you store underneath?

    I only store my Igloo cooler and my pin dolly currently. Do you think storing stuff under your pins make your line up look bad?

    #2 4 years ago

    Pinball dolly and a cabinet...but thats about it. I didn't own a pinball dolly for years just because I didn't want to have to store it but once I got one it became an invaluable tool. I prefer nothing under the games as I think it makes it look cluttered and distracts your eye's away from the games and I do the best I can to hide what little is under there.

    My pin dolly, comic book collection, a Bang and Olufsen 4400 stereo receiver and Lowel light kit are all under pins at the moment.

    Anything under there just looks tacky IMO.........Joey

    #5 4 years ago

    I store my Sub-woofers under them

    #6 4 years ago

    I have a serious lack of space in my tiny house. By necessity, I must store my tools, parts and dolly under the pins.

    #7 4 years ago

    Pin jack. That's pretty much it right now. That will probably change once my kids are older.

    #8 4 years ago

    Car and pinball parts. i prefer nothing under them, someday yes, someday.

    #9 4 years ago

    I wish nothing...other then a sub....

    ......but too much stuff...so slot machine, strength tester, old pinball machines 1930's,
    parts...

    I hope one day for nothing.....

    #10 4 years ago

    All my pin stuff and anything else I may need out of my way lol

    Don't wait too long. Before you know it, they'll no longer fit.

    #12 4 years ago

    my pinball parts for the machines i own.....also have tubs of grandkids toys under the pool table

    #13 4 years ago

    I have about a dozen boxes of cataloged and cleaned 45 RPM records under mine.

    #15 4 years ago

    Pinjack and an old bucket to sit on when I'm going thru settings and diagnostics,lol

    #16 4 years ago

    Nothing. Looks really tacky when people have stuff under there. It's not a storage space.

    #17 4 years ago

    A lift cart, packing boxes, boxes of parts, etc.

    Space is limited, so empty space is wasted space.

    Really it looks like organized storage to me ? Without doing it id have to get rid of some pins so ill take the horrible tackiness I guess . Some of us dont have mansions with 2000 sqft basement

    #19 4 years ago

    Dust.

    #20 4 years ago

    I store Zizzle machines under my real pins.

    #21 4 years ago

    Coin boxes, translites (store 'em flat), step stools for kids, EM projects.

    #22 4 years ago

    Subwoofer, motorcycle, shoes and boots, tools, parts. My apt is pretty small.

    #23 4 years ago

    nothing

    #24 4 years ago

    Really? Drain.

    #25 4 years ago

    evidence...

    #26 4 years ago

    Only thing under my pins is a powered subwoofer under my AC/DC. It's pushed all the way back near the wall so it's hard to see it from the front of the pin.
    Personally, I don't like storing anything under my pins. I understand that some folks don't have a lot of options. To each, his own.

    672 sqft for this cat. 2 people and 2 dogs. Fitting 5 pinball machines was a task in it's self.

    #28 4 years ago

    About 40 cases of resistors...

    #29 4 years ago

    A lot !
    Boxes with pinball parts, manuals and tools. 2 pinball dollys.
    But even my Thule cargo box is underneath 3 pins as I don't really have space to store it anywhere else.

    #30 4 years ago

    anything that will fit..

    I hear you lol

    #32 4 years ago

    I am glad I am not the only one that has to store stuff under machines. Do I like it...no, do I have an option...no. It is what it is for now.

    #33 4 years ago

    I used to keep a box of spare parts under each machine. But now that i have 3 that was getting cluttered looking. So i put those boxes in the storage cubby under our steps. So right now the floor is clear except for a box/spool of cat6 cable and the surge protector the machines are all plugged into.

    #34 4 years ago

    I keep parts and tools, but mostly it's stacks of JAMMA boards for my arcade machines. I have the boards in pizza boxes, labelled with the titles on the side. Underneath the machines is a safe spot that keeps them out of the way while I can still easily get to them.

    #35 4 years ago

    The floor.

    #36 4 years ago

    I also wish I had nothing under them.

    Right now I only have one pin, so the only thing under it is the pinball cart.

    #38 4 years ago

    Pays to have a complete row of pins sandwiched with walls. If you put storage at least as deep as the speaker you cant see whats under the pins. Hate the look of storage that is visible from the side.

    #39 4 years ago

    Nothing. I hate anything underneath the pins.

    #40 4 years ago

    I wish nothing :/

    Apple Xserve/Xsan
    pinball lifter
    Some "projects" the gf wanted to do, but hasn't for idk how many months
    Pinball parts

    Hopefully some subs soon!

    #41 4 years ago

    I use these for storage under my pins. Nothing would be preferable, but I just don't have the room to do anything else. At least these keep it neat and my parts and tools dust free.

    Somebody design some pinball dust ruffles to hide my ugly storage.

    #42 4 years ago

    Sub under each. Nothing else.

    #43 4 years ago

    When the gameroom was in the basement, I had Rubbermade bins under the games. Now that I have a real gameroom, I refuse to put anything under them for that clean look

    #44 4 years ago

    Used to store all my parts under them but I got a cart for them half because it was ugly, half because I hate constantly crawling under pins to get parts. Will being loading up on a bunch of subwoofers the next time there's a deal on the cheap Polk or Dayton ones.

    #45 4 years ago

    I'm limited on space so what ever fits most of the time.

    #46 4 years ago

    The dog.
    He goes under there when we play the machines.

    #47 4 years ago

    My guitar cases and road cases + weights and workout equipment.

    #48 4 years ago

    Tons of crap: Subs, two small filing cabinets, books, and CDs.

    Plus a dog bed for my dog that likes to keep an eye on me while I play.

    #49 4 years ago

    I have Crates & Boxes of Records, but my pins are next to my turntables

    oh and a tote full of cables and controllers for about any game system

    #50 4 years ago

    I wish it was nothing, but right now my game room simply isn't organized enough to make that happen. Currently there are pinball parts, repair tools, and video game controllers. Ideally, I'd like to move that stuff to my back room; but right now that's the honest answer.
