Vintage pinball games are fast becoming the hot collectable items of the twenty first century. They are getting harder to find and rising in price, especially the really nice ones. A good vintage juke box from the same era will cost £10,000 plus. How long will it be before these classic electro mechanical pinball games have similar price tags? Nothing like them will ever be made again, and very limited numbers survive. Having one in your home adds a new dimension to entertainment. Playing one is a great alternative to watching ever poorer quality television, especially on a dark cold evening when there is little else to do. The fact that they may prove very wise investments is a bonus. Restorable games are very hard to find here in the UK. Most offered for sale are worn out, cosmetically awful and playing badly, if at all. Any title worth restoring may take a very long time to find. I spend unknown hours searching for and looking at games that may be worth buying. They are easier to source in the US, but the cost of bringing one here is around £1,000-00 including taxes, on top of the cost of the game. And they still need work. And a 240 to 110 volt transformer, as US games do not have a UK multi tap 240 volt unit.
I spend many hours restoring my games so they play as new. Then I spend many more hours restoring them cosmetically. I make sure every lamp lights as it should. I make sure every stepper, relay, and motor works as it should. The same with the score units, and I clean and polish the drums. I clean and gap all the contacts. I check all the switch stack screws are tight. I make sure all the solder joints are good. I clean the cabinet internally and externally. I overhaul the flippers, slingshots and pop bumpers. I fit new parts as required. I strip, clean and polish the playfield. Then I rebuild the game so it looks stunning and plays superbly. When all the work is completed, I play test and refine the game, to ensure every feature works properly and it plays perfectly.
That is what you receive when you buy one of my games. A fully restored, fully working, and beautiful example of the title you choose. The result of my knowledge, experience, skill, and something I absolutely enjoy doing.
All my games can be set on free play or fitted with a coin mech'. All the games come with a schematic wiring diagram, essential for future maintenance, and a new box of lamps. All games are fitted with a new rubber ring set and ball. I can deliver for 45p / mile or collection is fine. If you would like to have more images or information about any game, please contact me for details. I will always consider taking a game in part exchange.
