Who is behind/creator of FPS?


Pinball take control of your leisure time


My name is Fredrik Dahlén, born in the end of the 60´ths and lives in Sweden with my family. My family consists of a daughter named Alva and a boy named Albin and my wife who is very sympathetic for my newly raised interest. She believe that I have got some kind of pinball virus, yes in the beginning of an new topic it is easy to spend to much time learning all new terminology and technical issues involved in these machines.



Why Pinball?

Accessibility and circumstances


How I become an owner of a pinball machine, the story behind. It all started the autumn 2006 when I saw an advertisement for a non functional pinball Underwater (Recel) on the Swedish auction site Tradera which got for an feasible price, unfortunately I missed the chance to achieve the pinball due to certain circumstances. I found more and more information on the internet about pinball's machine, how to refurbishing and renovate this old machines. This combined with memories from high school when we always during the breaks hanged out on a local café which had one pinball machine, I believe it was Mr. And Mrs. Pac-Man, and an arcade game Tiger-Heli, Taito 1985. Also a jukebox was present where the song "Sex crime" with Eurythmics was frequently played. I thought this could be a nice hobby to renovate an old machine after the house refurbishing now was ended.



Remember!
