    Default Hello From Indiana

    Hello! My name is Brian, but going by Chaching on here because I love that sound when you score in Pachinko! Who doesn't reight?

    I am from Indiana and my family had owned one since the 70's to about 2005. Sadly in that year we where moving and accidentally left it behind. It was a Nashijin B Super Deluxe Three Comic with PAC play field. So, if anyone from Ft. Wayne area knows the whereabouts or someone purchased it from that area, let me know ;-) would love to get it back in the family. I know, I could just modify, but when you grew up playing that one machine, it's has sentimental value.

    anywho, it took me years to find that info about our original machine. The net wasn't as abundant with info as I was tracking, lost interest from time to time with dead end leads, and finally found the info I needed recently. But, I decided to buy a couple machines off eBay. I am now in the process of tracking their info down so I can either restore on my own or have a reputable person do it for me. I work a lot. So, the second option is probably most likely.

    my purpose being here is to learn as much as I can, have fun seeing everyone's machines, and enjoying my stay. Hopefully, I will learn to fix them if I have time. If not, I am watching and smiling at the fun you all are having and will share my machines as well.

    Thank you for all the welcomes! Here are two pics of machines I got off eBay. The sumo wrestlers I have and going to take to pachinko planet to be restored. It's not a long drive from where I'm at and would really like to get that one restored first. The other one is not here yet. I have to see what shape it is in and go from there.
