With all of the pinball machines we
refurbish for resale, the following is done to each
machine at a minimum:
- The top of the playfield will be disassembled. All
parts removed, cleaned and / or polished, and then
reassembled. If any parts are broken, they are
replaced, if available.
- Prior to reassembling the playfield, it will be cleaned,
polished, and waxed.
- All new rubber rings are installed.
- All bulbs are replaced with new bulbs - not just the bad
ones, but all of them.

- For solid state machines where a single NiCad battery is
mounted on the CPU / MPU board, a remote battery pack or a
memory capacitor will be installed to reduce the risk of
future board damage. However, if the CPU / MPU board
uses a 3 - AA battery holder, only the batteries will be
replaced with new ones in some instances.

disassembled, cleaned, and lubrication applied where
needed. Equally, coil sleeves are replaced on step
up and step down coils when necessary.

We can also
refurbish your game. Pricing is determined by the
complexity of the playing field of your game. For
example, a newer late 80's / 90's model with ramps,
multiple playfield levels, toys, and intricate mechanical
objects will typically cost more than a game with a single
level playfield from the early 80's or prior. Please
