    I got several of these:

    Since I don't do any under cabinet lighting or anything, they just sort of disappear down there and then I have a bunch of space for stuff.

    At one point I had tons of stuff under them, but I have been able to relocate most of my 45s and pinball parts that took up most of the space. Now I have essentially a basket with glass cleaner, wax, and a few other routine pinball maintenance items.

    If I had space, I'd do that. My man cave is 1/2 a dumping ground now since my son was born pretty much.

    I have 12 Pins. The Pin dolly is under one of them at any given time. The rest need to be open so I can rearrange easily. One day I will find an arrangement I am happy with. Parts are in the coin box or elsewhere on a shelf..............sadly they are all not yet installed.

    I have one of those too. Can't believe she sits under there with the cabinet speakers and sub blaring. 20150508_020610.jpg

    Comic book long boxes.

    More pinball machines... boxes of PCBs.

    I store my sons corvette power wheel under my pins. Fits nicely under there.

    #61 4 years ago

    I have a cat litter box under one of mine. The box has a lid and filter so it's not smelly.

    Subwoofer only, pushed back pretty far. I don't like the look of clutter, plus I like to stand with one foot extended under the front of the game.

    Your layout is pretty open all over - stuff under your games would stand out a lot more than most people's arrangements.

    I used to have underglow lights on my pins and they would reflect and look sooo cool. After having a child, it's a place to store everything we have no room for anywhere else. All still playable for sure, just storage under now out of necessity

    #66 4 years ago

    Boxes of parts/tools. It's ugly but I don't have the space to put it elsewhere.

    #67 4 years ago

    Dust Bunnies, lots of them I'm sure.

    #68 4 years ago

    subwoofers. I try to keep it clean as possible. I like it clean!

    #69 4 years ago

    boxes of parts specific to the machine they are located under.

    I am in the process of getting rid of some storage containers I have under a few of my pins otherwise I have my pinlifter and one Polk sub which I slide around to whatever game is flavor of the month. I just added this beverage fridge which fit perfectly under my TAF and is easily accessible without losing any space.

    #73 4 years ago

    I live in a 600 sq. ft. city apartment, so I put under them whatever I would have put in my non-existent storage closet

    #74 4 years ago

    My games are on black light carpet and I have a 22 inch florescent light under each game to light up the carpet. Looks really cool, like the games are floating on the carpet. That and a sub or 3 is all that's under my games.

    #75 4 years ago

    Subwoofer or nothing.

    My game room is also my son's playroom so lots of his Tonka trucks and bigger toys fit nicely under the pins. Also have stools underneath for when he wants to play the pins.

    #78 4 years ago

    Wow that is incredible looking. All the wedgeheads and neon just look amazing together. I guess I need to figure out how to finish my ceiling......

    A ride on Thomas the train that my son loves to ride on.

    My wife and dog. LOL.

    Seriously though; I know this a old thread and I'd like to reopen it.

    I've been looking all over this forum for examples of how to nicely and neatly store large and small things under my two rows of pins. One row has five pins and the other has 6. I'm a total neat freak and up to this point have spent the past 15 years of pin collecting storing little to nothing under there. I love the neat and clean look. However I moved south into a Florida home with no extra storage space. No basement, no good attic space, and a small garage. So to keep a long story short I need to start storing thing under my pins. Hobby tools, old keepsakes, stuff the wife (and me to be honest, LOL) wont throw out needs to go under the pins. I'm trying to keep everything near the back half of the pins to keep it looking neater and not obstruct the bottom speaker.

    In my search for good storage ideas the best I've found is plastic storage drawers on wheels, chests placed on rolling dollies and cover everything (including regular boxes) with black blankets. Does anyone have other ideas in their heads or examples of what they have done or seen done?

    Thanks in advance, Dave Schulpius

    Other pinball machines, mostly wood rails and antique radios.
    Mostly from the 1920's and '30's. Another hobby I no longer have
    room for. Some of these radios have been so buried for so long
    have forgotten what I have .
