    I had one that seemed to be covered in a Black soot as if it were stored in a chimney.

    The usual small dead roaches and spiders were found in a few machines.

    I had fragments of glass and a larger ball bearing stuck in a payout motor. No pictures and camera now broken.

    here's the staple from my star wars machine that "didn't work" - saved me at least $100 off the price

    for my vintage machines, I did find a collection of nuts in the back of the payout chute. one of the local critters must have been storing his winter supplies there. every few jackpots, I would get a bonus "nut" with the pay out.

    I found a small elf or something in one of my pachinkos once, it said if I let him out he'd grant me some wishes..So I let him out but no wishes, what a liar!!

    I wish I had taken some pics!!

    I Said, I Wish I had taken some pics!!!Nope, still no wishes!!

    I found pieces of green crayon in mine along with some non-descript insects, being that I just joined this site, I didn't think to take any "before" pix when I did my clean-up/refurbish a few weeks ago. If I take on another restoration project, I will be sure to do that.

    I think I would have lost my mind if I couldn't find my wedding band for 2 years. I was outside at 1:00 a.m. last night because I couldn't find my truck keys!

    As a painter it doesn't pay to ware my band so now I only put it on when theres something we go out to do. Before I was a painter I ether had it on all the time or never failed to put it back on. Driving home one night I had my hand out the window. When I looked an my hand my band was gone. Lets say the wife was NOT happy. Do I need to say anything about the rest of the way home?!
    Did I say never? So what's on the bathroom vanity when I get home? I couldn't decide what was worse, going home or getting home.
