|I’m going to take
you through the steps I follow when restoring pinball machines.
Forgive me if I miss something as I am doing this from memory.
There are lots of ways to restore pinball machines, this is
just the methodology I follow.
The first thing you need to do is prepare a space to work
on the machine. I have a 7’ table that I use to hold
the playfield and rotisserie. I also have a 4’ table
that I use to organize the parts I remove from the machine.
I also have a portable cart that holds a Craftsman tool box,
Stanley organizers, and misc cleaners and parts. I try to
keep the tools well organized so I don’t have to hunt
for the tool I need. I also use a number of small containers
to hold screws, posts, and springs. I try to keep them organized
by what they are used for.
