Magic​ Pachinko Restorations

Have  your old dirty, rusty, Vintage Pachinko Machine turned into a family heirloom treasure!

What my customers are saying.

This is an excerpt from a letter I receive on Aug. 8, 2022.  It's comments like this one that keep me loving what I do!.

Dear Dan,

       I am writing to let you know how utterly amazed I am with what you have done.  You took my machine, made room for me in your schedule and turned around the machine in fast order.  Something I never expected.

       As you may have deducted from my initial letter, I have some time constraints on being able to share this with my children and their children. You have made my being able to do that possible.  You will never know how truly special that chance is to me.

       I am excited and loved the video you made.  You are a class act.  I cannot put into words how I appreciate what you have done for me and my family.  Our machine is one of a million of other pachinko machines that are out there but when my kids see it in the shape you have restored it to, it will become the most prized Pachinko Machine in our little world.

        Thank you for all that you do for the Pachinko Lovers and for Veterans.  It is appreciated!


This letter was sent to me after I got Tony's restored machine back to him and his family.  Tony is living on borrowed time.....

 "Your work is impeccable!"

"I randomly found Magic Pachinko Restorations while hunting for a new machine and found this beauty.  (Nishijin Power Flash).  

Dan was so wonderful to work with.  He would send pictures of the restorations process along the way, so I was never worried.

  Packed and shipped so well and when I plugged it in.....fabulous! 

This is now on of my prized possessions.  Dan is the real deal!  Thank you for making this such a fun experience."

"I am refurbishing a vintage pachinko and came across one of Dan's YouTube videos today. He had made some lighting modifications that I was interested in doing to my machine so I reached out to him through this website. 

 That same afternoon Dan called me and offered a wealth of knowledge, 

answering all the questions I had. 

 I was so impressed with his quick customer service and kind demeanor!

Highly recommended!"

"I cannot thank Dan enough for the time he took walking me through getting my pachinko machine going. He was super knowledgeable and extremely helpful. And a very nice guy. I’m looking forward to getting my machine fully restored in the future. It’ll definitely be going to Dan. It’s my father’s machine and I wouldn’t trust it with anyone else."

"I contacted Dan just a little over a week ago after buying my first vintage machine. His messenger response said "call me anytime" . . so I did at 9pm and the next thing you know we were on the phone for an hour as he walked me through clearing the machine. His patience, knowledge, and love of helping people is amazing and now a week later I'm playing my machine!"

I recently sold a pachinko machine on eBay.  What follows is the comments of the new owner.

  Needless to say I am very proud of this one!

 "The whole transaction, from beginning to end, was nothing but an extreme pleasure. I wish more EBay

 Vendors would actually follow suit, "get their act together," and deliver that which they allegedly postulate to do so ..

 Vendors such as Dan Welch, dba Magic Pachinko Restorations, are "rare" ... It was my pleasure to do business with not only a consummate professional, "but a gentleman in the highest-regard".

"I recently purchased a restored pachinko machine from Dan. What an awesome experience. From the first contact through to the FaceTime call to walk me through the working and understanding to debug issues of the machine after it was received was a great experience and shows his caring for customers and knowledge of the products. I highly recommend purchasing from Magic Pachinko Restorations."

Steve P.

"From the moment I contacted Dan about restoring a dusty, old Pachinko machine, he was terrific. He began working as soon as he received the machine, and he updated me regularly on his progress by texting photos and Facetiming. It is obvious that he enjoys his work and interacting with customers. After he sent back the finished machine -- which looks beautiful -- he made himself available on several occasions to answer my questions about mounting and playing the Pachinko. What a pleasure to deal with Dan. Highly recommended!"

Nick H.

"Dan was amazingly helpful, informative and fast. His depth of knowledge about the machine was incredible, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who has a pachinko machine that needs some love."

Aaron Van D.

"I was recently contacted by a customer who wanted to have a pachinko machine restored. The machine belonged to his wife. Her father had bought it for her many years ago and she had fond memories of playing the machine. Years passed and so did her father. My customer (the husband) found the machine and sent it to me for restoration. "Make it like new again." he told me. I did a full restoration and sent it back to him. On 9-9-20, he surprised his wife by letting her open the big box I use to ship machines."

These are the moments that make my work so important to me!
