?What are they?
This might seem like a stupid question to some, but can anyone tell me the true meaning of bingo pinballs and whether or not to buy them?

Bingo pins are, in fact, gambling machines that are roughly the size and shape of regular pins. They are electro-mechanical, extremely heavy, with masses of wires, relays and motors. I think that most collectors are probably middle aged and, perhaps, some of their mis-spent youth was on these machines (they are extremely addictive). I have 2 bingos and, I must say, that I would probably get rid of my TZ, TAF or CFTBL before I would sell my bingos! If you would like to pursue this further, a great book on Bingo's has just been published by Jeffrey Lawton. It goes into great detail and there are lots of excellent pictures. I'm sorry that I don't have the time to explain all the features here, it would take way too long. Hope this helps - Roger
Yeah, it might take a bit of time to explain all of the features here ~ Where would you start, smile`
