I want to introduce myself to this forum.
I am sorry that I only speak a few words French so I hope you bare with me and my English.
I am running an arcade in Denmark called Retroarkaden.dk I run this with my wife Nanna. We have a passion for everything arcade but most of all pinball.
I am a collector and enjoy to find and restore pinball and arcade machines. The restoration is a big part of the hobby for me and I enjoy it just as much as playing the games. We open our collection to other people every Thursday from 16.00-23.00 and sometimes also on a Saturday once a month.
Recently I have developed a huge passion for electro mechanical (EM) shooting, flying and driving games from Chicago Coin, Williams, Bally, Midway, Kasco ect. and buy them if I can to save them from destruction. I bring them back to life and restore them for people to enjoy again. This era is very special to me with the black light and mechanics. If you have any machines for sale please contact me as these machines are very difficult to find.

Thank you all for the nice welcome
It is always nice to say hello to people with the same passion as one self. My country is small and most of the arcade machines are owned by a father/son team that bought up or was given for free several thousands machines when the arcades died. They wanted to make a museum but could not get support from the government so the machines have been sitting for many years in storrage. The roofs are going bad and they will not sell as much as a joystick and don't let anybody in. It is very frustrating to know when you have a passion for these things. Most of the stuff is original dedicated machines too. Luckily they did not like pinball so those we can still find.
