I am keen to get my hands on any electronic pinball machines in any condition working or not will paid up to $3000. I enjoy the challange of restoring and repairing them. I have 2 boys (3 and 8 years old) who then test the machines out daily to ensure they work well (and they love it). Happy to hear from others who also have the interest/addiction as me. You can phone me on 08 82983734 ask for John.

P.S. I can talk pinball for hours so you may need to cut me off if I talk too much.

P.S.S. I was raised by 2 pinball machines from a young age. They call me Johnbot bother to Jackbot and son to Pinbot and Bride of Pinbot.

Hi Phil, great site thanks for telling me about it. Good to see other pinball heads out there. As for my ad last saturday I had a few calls and met more heads and will now keep in touch with them (and tell them about this site if they don't aready know about it).

Today I went pinball shopping again with a new pinball head and he brought Cue Ball Wizard and Demolition Man (both in the best condition I have even seen).

I love Cue Ball Wizard I spent ten weeks doing a hospitality course at the Norwood Football Club and played it every day. :D

I've never played Demolition Man though. :(

Have you checked out the Members Arcade Collection forum?

Hi Brett, I agree I enjoyed Maverick. But for running out of space, you can always make room for pinballs, sell the fridge, tv, bed, lounge anything but not the pinballs. But seriously, happy to talk to you about buying one of your pinballs - just call me when your ready.

I now find myself either paying pinball in my shed or on the internet reading and posting replies to articles on this website between 8pm and 1am each day - cool.
