    I bought an Apollo 13 off Ebay from an operator in April 2004 for $1126. I remember that I got it home and was disappointed that one of the flippers didn't work (a wire broke off) as well as the moon magnet didn't grab the ball (another broken wire). I didn't know a thing about repairing machines but somehow got the wires soldered back on using a soldering gun and plumbers solder and was in business! A short time after that I found Clay's guides which really gave me the confidence to work on machines and start looking for a 2nd machine.
