I remember seeing a beautiful Renaissance painting once in a National Gallery tour. The guide said the reason it looked so good was that it had been housed in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg for a few hundred years before coming to America. Alas, my wife does not appreciate the artistic qualities of pinball and she wants me to keep them in the garage. That's fine with me, as I have my little mancave down there now. This time of year, I start thinking about the weather. With apologies for my naivette, I ask if pinballs are like fine art when it comes to temperatures or do you need to keep them warm?
I live in the Seattle area, where it gets down in the thirties but not much below that. Lots of rain, but the garage is dry. When I purchased the MBr, the seller said that he had put heating in his garage to take care of his pinballs. In my case, the garage is always warmer than the ambient temp since it is beneath the house. Is heating the garage a must?
How low can you go before the cold becomes a problem?
One more question, would it be better to leave the pinballs on all the time or turn them off when not playing them? Thanks!
