The Pinsmith™ specializes in the repair and restoration of every make, model, and vintage pinball and arcade machine. Everything from the antique pre-flipper no-power machine to one of the most technologically advanced modern and sophisticated electronic games, we can get them running again in no time.
To ensure that we are meeting the needs of our customers, we offer three popular services. If you do not see a service that suits your needs, please contact us and we will customize a quote. We know that every person has individualized needs and we are determined to go above and beyond your expectations regardless of circumstances.
Basic Pinball and Arcade Game Repair $150 (<2 hours)
This is by far our most popular service, best suited for pinball machines or arcade games that mostly work but need some attention to specific problems. It includes a full diagnosis and an hour or two of our specialized experience to get your game up and running again. This service also applies to any arcade game repairs not needing off-site monitor or board repairs. If a monitor needs repair, it will need to be pulled and returned for $150 additional, due when it is re-installed. If your board is corroded and needs replacement, or if a more detailed cpu or sound board repair is needed, we will discuss options at that time.
We provide a complete solution to every problem in your game, whether you know about it or not. We will go through your game from top to bottom, repairing anything that doesn’t work perfectly, ensuring proper connections to all boards and assemblies, replacing all burnt lamps, and performing any necessary preventative maintenance to prevent any known problems. It is our goal to leave your game 100% operational, so if any additional work is needed or optional upgrades are available, we will discuss possible follow-up at time of service.
Complete Pinball Machine Restoration – $450-$600 (6-8 hours)
This service includes all of the repairs offered in the Basic Service, and will also leave your game looking and playing like new again! Your playfield will be completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned and polished right down to the tiny crevices, new rubber will be installed, plastics and ramps will be polished, and the game will be reassembled with attention to the errors of past repairs and installing missing or incorrect screws. If the rubber on your game is cracking or breaking, or looks old and yellowed, this service is recommended and is usually absolutely necessary if the game has been in storage or has been unplayable for many years. Most single level games made before 1985 can be restored in about 6 hours, and later model games with ramps and multiple levels take about 8 hours to complete.
Game Rooms / Multiple Games
We can provide service to your entire collection of pinball and arcade games. Please contact us so that we can talk with you to determine your needs for each game. We will ensure that we give every game the individual attention it needs and work out a satisfactory price to bring your gameroom back up to your standards. We cannot provide quotes without further information, but we can guarantee that every game will be working better than before.
