Circus Voltaire and Addams Family pinball repair visit

Pinball machines are big lumps, lets face it!  We offer an in home repair service as well as full workshop facilities for more complex problems at our Preston workshop.

This photo was taken when repairing an Addams Family pinball and Circus Voltaire pinball, the Circus was doing all sorts of strange things, so weird its hard to describe, you would think it was blown logic on the switch matrix but actually, a lose ASIC chip was the culprit.

We added a LED kit to Circus Voltaire to go with the Addams Family which already had a full LED KIT.

We offer full workshop facilities in Preston (we can get your machine collected) plus onsite servicing anywhere in the North of England.  Regularly as far down as Birmingham and sometimes as far as Bristol, Worcester, Bath and even the Channel Islands!

Funhouse pinball machine total restoration in the making

Here is the making of another of our funhouse premium restorations!

We start by taking all the old stuff off the old playfield and getting the parts and loom over to the new playfield, replacing as we go.

Every last part comes off the old playfield until all we are left with is the wooden playfield.  Then we have to transplant all the parts and or replace with new, onto the new playfield.  Many hours work goes into making a Premium Restoration machine.  More updates to follow
