    Yes, in the interest of aesthetics and proper acoustics the correct answer should be nothing.

    Sometimes space becomes a factor and that area under the machine is too tempting not to utilize. I currently have a pedal tractor and camper oven stashed under the machines at home (and some dust bunnies/the occasional dog or cat under a couple others).

    The shop game has a transmission jack underneath it. . . sort of.

    Do you have anything unusual hidden under your machine?

    Only dust bunnies.

    Occasionally you can find the family dog under the pinball machine.

    , SirScott.

    A large collection of crap is under my three: two ladders, three pop-up tents, four what-a-chairs, and a kitchen wall cabinet on wheels with spare parts and cleaning supplies.

    The house we're designing will have enough storage space in _other_ rooms to restore the under-machine space to sanity. And room for more machines, of course.

    Another pinball machine...

    Flat rolling bins of console/NeoGeo games fit perfectly under there...

    Tumbleweed's of dog hair. Not worth taking a picture

    I got some boxes of tools and some Christmas ornaments under my games.

    #10 4 months ago

    Mostly shop type stuff. Spare arcade and pinball parts, boards, rebuild type parts.

    #11 4 months ago

    Legs, lock down mechanic, plastics, rubbers, bulbs leds, old DMDs, subwoofer,... All types of shit

    Currently...coffee tables. We went coffee table-less due to the flailing body of a two year old. Decent place to hide them for sure.

    I have bins of pinball parts and tools and bulbs and stuff. It all fits in one huge plastic bin, but when I need something it is on the bottom and everything has to come out and be a mess.

    Definitely Lurking. . .

    #17 4 months ago

    Nothing but my lit up bl carpet and some subs....no dust bunnies or cob webs cuz I keep everything clean.

    #18 4 months ago

    Might be a cigarette butt down there. During intense games sometimes not time enough to reach the ashtray.

    #19 4 months ago

    Permanent: A box of ramps I haven't found shelf space for yet and a milk crate for my son to pull out and stand on.

    Variable: Two cats, although they typically prefer the center of the glass of whatever game you happen to be playing well on.

    #20 4 months ago

    An original hardwood oak floor from 1959.

    #21 4 months ago

    Tools, parts, mods plus nonpinball crap. It is getting out of control and things down there are conspiring against me.

    #22 4 months ago

    polk audio subwoofers.... and the one screw i dropped many months ago and couldn't find

    #24 4 months ago

    #25 4 months ago

    Brand new 48" gas cooktop I haven't got around to installing.......Takes up the space below 2 machines

    somehow the space under mine in my shop has become storage for old shipping boxes. I keep them around in case I sell something, and need a shipping box.

    At one of my first locations I was shutting down, when I crawled under the pin I found a Chicken bone. Specifically a drum stick that was mostly consumed.

    All the stuff that's normally piled up being stored in my basement is now being stored piled under 18 pinball machines. That includes 3 more pinball machines :-/
