I currently own Bally's Trio (1963, Ted Zale). I also used to own Bally's Hayride (1964, Zale) and Bally's Freedom (1976). As you might guess, I like EM machines.
Don't think I've played any of those three
My JQ now works 100% it rules
I got very lucky and scored a Volley for free! It was being given away and a friend clued me in! It needs work but is in really nice condition cosmetcly
Love Volley! Played it for about an hour at a pin show in May. That is a great pickup by you. I'm very jealous over that one. I'm no tennis player, but that is one addictive pin.
Any thoughts on keeping pinball machines in a basement? If I can confirm a pin will fit through the door and around a tight curve (Reasonably confident in this - we did get a fridge in the basement with the doors off), then I'm wondering about the humidity down there. We have de-humidifiers that keep it down to 40-45%, but during heavy rains it can get up to 80% down there. Always dreamed about owning my own machine(s).
It was surprising for me as well at first, until I noticed that my Rollergames uses pressured-treated wood for the cabinet.Thanks [MENTION=1729]shogun00[/MENTION] and [MENTION=504]Jay[/MENTION]! Most of the manuals I found online also say the machines can take up to 95% relative humidity, which is a bit surprising.
