Magic Pachinko Restorations
I saw my first vintage pachinko machine about six years ago. My brother-in-law had purchased a few at an auction and spent some time cleaning them up and getting them to function properly. I was fascinated by what I considered to be a mechanical marvel.
I soon found one of my own and cleaned it up to the best of my abilities at the time. This started my passion for the machines! I had to have more!
Since then, I have restored over 100 Vintage Pachinko Machines. I am one of a handful of craftsman who do complete restorations. That meaning everything is restored including replacing the original artwork (playfield). The old playfields suffered from fading and water damage. Replacing the playfield makes all the difference in the world to the look of the machine.
Currently I look for vintage machines to buy, restore and sell.
I also have customers that send me their machines to be repaired or restored.
Keeps me pretty busy!
