Burn out and Burn in
Over the past few days I was busy trying to get my Johnny M up and working. I bought this pin from the 0P as non working. It had been sitting in his shop
not working for about six months from when I started to barter back and forth
with him for the pin.
I bought it, and it sat for about a year.
I’ve been blasted at work and the love of the pins entered into burn out stage
and while I was still looking to acquire pins, I wasn’t looking hard.
I had planned to be at the showdown today, with the pins. That didn’t happen
because even after I got the hand working (using a 8 cent 3/8 corse thread nut)there were electrical issues that I had to work out.
So the day I was planning on just playing other peoples machines, taking photosand being in Denver, I spent slowly nursing a neglected pin back into health
and increasing my troubleshooting skills (and putting my TOP vid to good use )
This evening, as I was playing the game which works, minus a Actuator I need to
buy, I realized that while I would love to be in Denver right now, looking at
all the parts and goods, and most of all pins. That I love working on pins,
that I get a lot of satisfaction from working on these pins.
I am looking forward to grabbing some parts, and Pestering Scot Bogart, listening to some Chats, and playing some pins.
I love this hobby.
