I’m considering a purchase of my very first pinball machine. I have the funds to get a new-in-box pin, and I really like several of the new Sterns, so I’m planning to go in that direction. My biggest hangup at the moment is that I’m not sure what kind of maintenance I’m signing myself up for.
What kind of maintenance am I looking at for a new-in-box pin for home use?
I know that pins are complicated mechanical and electronic devices, and no two are exactly the same. But I’m hoping you nice folks could give me an idea of how often I should expect to be making repairs, cleaning, etc. Are the repairs on a new machine fairly basic?
