This idea was spawned from another thread about what people do to afford pins, but I thought it would be interesting to create a poll. People here to seem to cover a wide demographic swath, with various collection sizes. It's certainly an expensive hobby, but not so much that it's prohibitive for many to own a machine. This might give some insight into market pricing.
I understand this might be controversial, but the results for polls are anonymous. I realize this is just a small sample of Pinside users ( who probably skew more hardcore hobbyist than the average pin owner ). It probably makes sense to only submit a response if you own or have owned machine(s).
