      Best place to buy project pins?

      Hey guys,

      Sorry if this has been covered before.

      What are some of the best places to look for project machines.
      I'm just on the hunt and have been checking ebay/gumtree.
      Any specialist sites or places I should check out. I'm in Vic if that helps.

      Cheers guys

      Good question.

      I could use a couple of populated playfields myself but buggered if I'm paying $1000 with most parts gone from a playfield that looks like it came out of a river.

      There isn't really a "best" place to buy them anymore. It's harder to get some project pins than fully restored ones. You have to scour all of the online listings and keep your ear to the ground around here, too. Not really a technique to it, just blind luck at this point!

      I'd love a run down DMD but I'm considering SS as well.

      then stop lurking and post
      surely you can post something once a week

      AA is a great forum, full of helpful people, but if you hide in the shadows, only coming out when you have an issue, then you wont make new friends

      idd also not reccomend a project game for your first machine

      nothing more frustrating than a game you cannot get to work
      it maybe missing parts you cannot buy, it maybe dammaged (the cabinet) beyond repair, it may require skills or tools you dont have

      if you buy a project from a dealer, ask yourself why they did not fix it themselves and then sell it

      Listen to uncle Pete. These are wise words. I could post a list of us and every other dealer in Melbourne but you will never see a project that's worth seeing now. They are all as Pete said
