You have some very cheap dreams... If this is to fulfill your life, then happiness is just 3000 euro away...

I also have a dream but it costs about 30 times than yours  ;D

30 years they improve pinballs constantly and you think you can make it better? That's what i call optimistic guy!
About the making things yourself, you have a lathe in your home? Lucky guy then.

where in the name of god did you find this explanation?

a lathe is a turning machine that you have the piece (wood or metal or plastic) rotated and you put it against a fixed tool. Thus, you remove material perimetically...

..... well... a lathe is in Greek the machine so called "TORNOS".... you know...
