Bring in your electro-mechanical (not computer controlled) pinball machine (made between 1965 - 1977(older pinballs please call) for full service known as a complete "Shop Out". We include all rubbers and light bulbs. We include many other minor parts that are needed but big cost items such as glass, destroyed/missing plastics, major assemblies or anything we determine as too expensive will require us to call you and get approval. By working, we mean everything works. We repair all electro-mechanical parts on and under the playfield that can be repaired. If a mechanism is irreparable we search to find it. Some mechanisms are unavailable, we weld, braze, rivet and sometimes manufacture old parts back into shape. If the part just can't be found or fixed, we will call with the bad news. Non repairable machines are charged only the minimum shop charge of $125 plus any pickup and delivery charges (gas and sore backs). So far we have had NO, non repairable pinball events due to our efforts.
The playfield top is disassembled, cleaned and waxed, and put back together with new light bulbs and rubber rings. Everything gets fixed that can be fixed. We make it look as close to new as possible without buying all new parts. You can opt to have new ramps, plastics, targets and toys replaced, if they can be found, if you pay for them. We pay for the bulbs and rubbers. Missing hardware is yours to buy, but little things we have around the shop are free if they came from the junked games we have. We try to be fair, making money off the parts is not our main concern. Bringing the game back to life is our joy.
Cabinet leg corner brackets are repaired. We will glue and brace the cabinet if it is loose on the corners. We blow out and vacuum everything. You get new instruction cards and pricing cards.
We do NOT paint cabinets! We will touch-up a playfield with paint missing if requested. We can touch-up small paint issues on backglass if requested. The cabinet patina will be protected. Don't ever paint your cabinet.
We charge $850, plus extras mentioned above, plus tax for this service. A deposit may be required. For pinball games made before 1965 please call for pricing. Most jobs take weeks to accomplish. No rush jobs please. If a machine is, in our opinion, in a trashed out state of disrepair, we will insist on an up-charge or decline the job altogether. Certain pinball machines are also known to be difficult to work on and will incur an up-charge. You will be informed before we start work.
We pick up machines for repair within 50 miles of our shop. We charge $1 per mile each way with a minimum of $30 for this service. We pickup from the ground floor only, with no stairs or steps.
