Here I keep track of the money I spend on the pinball project. In case you want to do something similar, you can get an idea of what the costs might be - though, of course, YMMV.
Please note that I do not sell any parts, nor can I take any responsibilities for your ability to get these parts, or similar parts, yourself at this or another price.
Other costs are things I kind of always wanted to buy and that will be of more use to me than just in the pinball project. Working on the project just made these things neccessary "right now".
For example, I wanted to buy a soldering station as a replacement for my quite old soldering iron for years now. I finally bought one, because I would not have been able to work on the MC PCB without it.
I used to pay a rent of 20 Euro per month for the place I used as workshop, but that one has been shut down due danger of collapse (it was an old house!). Luckily I now have enough place in the basement where such things can be done.
All prices are in Euro.
