Magic Pachinko Restorations
I saw my first vintage pachinko machine about nine 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 235 Vintage Pachinko Machines.
I am one of a handful of craftsmen 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!
Over time, I have met many people who work on pachinko machines in a variety of levels.
I have helped any number of them become better at their craft.
One person in particular, Rudy Graham, has become very good at the restoration biz!
He now has his own website. Please stop by and visit!
