    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?

    #2 64 days ago

    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...

    #7 64 days ago

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

    #8 64 days ago

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

    #9 64 days ago

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

    #10 64 days ago

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

    #11 64 days 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 64 days ago

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

    #18 64 days ago

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

    #19 64 days 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 64 days ago

    An original hardwood oak floor from 1959.

    #21 64 days ago

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

    #22 64 days ago

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

    #24 64 days ago

    Well don't be upset, maybe one day you can afford a Baywatch

    #25 64 days ago

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

    Boxes pf new parts.

    #30 64 days ago

    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.

    Uh oh...what time was it?

    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 :-/
