Pinball Refurbishing Process

We take pride in having the highest standards with regard to the condition of the used pinball machines we sell. There are many definitions for “refurbished” and many times competitors will use the word “restored” to describe their process.

Our in depth refurbishing and restoration process includes:

  • Replace bad circuit boards and rebuild bad connectors as necessary
  • Replace backbox bulbs and clean backboard
  • Clean translite and translite glass
  • Replace translite trim as necessary
  • Vacuum inside of a cabinet
