Pinball Machine Restoration Process
El Dorado Restorations - click
Pinrescue only works on the classy pre 1978
electromechanical pinball machines that you may remember. This is our
full time occupation and has been for over a decade.
Pinrescue puts a minimum of 30 hours labor into
every mechanical restoration on every pinball machine we offer for
Three times that if we restore the cabinet and chrome. Pinrescue
doesn't bother putting our heroic and time consuming efforts into
restoring pinball machines with worn out trashy playfields or ones
with damaged cabinets or worse.
We really do the work to make these 30 year old machines play like
new. We change 100% of the rubbers and not just wipe them off. We
change all the lamps not just the bad ones. Pinrescue replaces all the
pop bumper components so they will work correctly for years to come.
Every pinball machine we sell has new flipper parts installed and
tuned to work like new.
Our 1970's pinball machines get all new playfield posts not only do
they look fantastic but they won't break and cause the machine to go
down. Each of our restored machines is cleaned from top to bottom.
Does it cost us more to do the job right? Of course it does. Sure our
prices are a little higher then buying from a part time pinball
restorer or the bargain "as is" pinball nightmare from Ebay. Pinrescue
knows what we do to these vintage machines and can't say what the
others do. This is our full time job and we love what we do and it
shows in our work. The best pinball machine in the world is no fun at
all if it doesn't work. The 1974 "Out of Site" pictured below may
still be in stock if it isn't in some happy customers game room by
