Magic​ Pachinko Restorations

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

The Restoration Process


Full Restoration

Imagine if you will, that you are a worker at a Japanese Pachinko factory.  You sit down at your workbench and spread out before you is every individual part you need to build a Pachinko Machine.  All of the plastic parts are clean, the metal is rust free, all of the brass has been polished back to its original shine and the wood is now clean, smooth and coated with polyurethane.  There is a new playfield ready to be installed.


Once I receive your pachinko, I spend about three days tearing it apart into its individual parts

 Everything gets cleaned and made ready to reinstall.  

I start by laying down a new playfield.  The original ones are almost always faded and water stained.  

The brass nails which have been polished are then hammered back into the main board.  

The stainless steel rails go back on next followed by all of the trim pieces, pay pockets and tulips.  

Then all of the plastic "guts" are reattached to the back of the board along with all the other parts.  

Most of the time I rewire the original wire harness to insure the solder connections, 

add new 12V light bulbs and wire in a 12V wall transformer.

The machine is replaced into its frame of red mahogany (which has been planed smooth, sanded and given two coats of polyurethane)

 and then completely tested to insure it functions correctly.

I have created a short video that shows what I do during a full restoration.

This short YouTube video gives you a good idea of the detail I go to when I do a complete restoration.

Partial Restoration

The amount of work done to your machine is always up to you.  Once I receive your machine and  give it a good look, I will call you and together we can discus what you'd like done.  For example, you might not want a complete restoration. You only want the machine cleaned up and put back in working order. 

 No problem!  I will do whatever you want me to do.  

It's your machine after all!
