The kitchen in his basement rental which he is properly reclaiming for the bar/game room of his brainchild.

Btw, the closer the pins are to the fridge the easier life is for everyone. ;)

Just thought I would ask.

And just cause the previous owners of my machine were unfair to you doesn't mean it has to be that way with everyone. Maybe trying a more positive approach with people and you wouldn't be so negative all the time when someone asks you simple questions.

Thanks anyways for the response. Looks like you will have quiet the gameroom once all set up :-D

Even if I said "I would respectfully decline" is still a negative answer. So is "I can't" or I am sorry but I rather not".

I just kept it short.

I don't give positive answers just to make people happy anymore.

And negative ALL the time? Jesus... 12 years and 20000+ posts on helping people, and you judge me on a few recent posts?

Ok.... Sure. You're right. You know me well. You da man. Lol. I must have had a brainfart when I positively promoted the pinball t-shirts after the Hawkesbury show.

See? I can be positive... Lol

So... should I do the cheezy thing and place the machines together by manufacturer, or build date?

I do have a sweet spot where all EMs could go. Or else I separate by manufacturer. I have Bally, Williams, Stern, Gottlieb and Zaccaria.

Opinions?

Spread them out in a way that each section has a good pin making people go there. Keep a good flow. Put an EM section. Separate by era maybe.

Any progress pics?
