Service and Repair
I service and repair all makes of pinball machines.
Pinball playfields are stripped of ramps and plastics to be able to reach old rubber, lamps and dirt. Lamps and rubbers are replaced with new parts. Mechanisms are cleaned and adjusted. Playfield is polished or waxed before reassembly.
Priced according to three machine categories

Please call me to discuss available solutions
Early Electronic. Solid State (SS) machines from the 70's and 80's are machines with digital displays but no ramps. R 4,500
Late Electronic. Solid State (SS) machines made in the early 80's till today. R 5,500
Twilight Zone slot machine scoop repair using silver brazing.
Electronic circuit board repair. Common faults found on circuit bords are driver transistors, fuse clips, power supply rectifiers and capacitors and switch matrix buffers. All brands serviced including Bally, Williams, Data East, Stern and Gottlieb.
Corrosion damage caused by a leaky battery can destroy a board. This can be prevented by installing a battery hanger as seen on my parts page.
This Whirlwind was left in the sun and the ramps melted. New ramps could be ordered and installed.
