    Default New here from Ontario

    Hi everyone, I stumbled on this forum because I was hoping to find anyone talking about Smart Ball machines and google lead me to some threads here. I am super interested in purchasing one or two Smart Ball machines, so if you have any leads please hit me up!
    I am also interested in any pajatso or payazzo machines from Europe.

    I have been addicted to machines like this every since witnessing Swiss Jolly Ball at a young age

    this machine now resides at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, but I saw it at it's first appearance at Expo 86.

    I own a lovely baseball-themed pachinko by Heiwa. Anyone have any info on it? I assume late 70s. I heard that a friend-of-a-friend had worked in Japan in the late 70s and early 80s, and the company shipped her back to North America around 1983 and she brought back 3 pachinkos with her, then they spent the next 35 years in her basement storage. I got in touch and rescued all 3 and kept this one, passing the other 2 on to friends.
    I also own a 1932 Bally Goofy baffleball game, Mousin' Around pinball, and No Good Gofers pinball. Currently working on a 1976 Sure Shot pinball machine from a friend.
