This machine was stripped down to its basic parts and thoroughly cleaned as well as background artwork replaced. All of the plastic and metal parts of the mechanism were cleaned and polished. All of the original components were reused and any missing or broken parts have been replaced, repaired or fabricated to working condition. New replacement parts have not been produced for over 40 years. All nails as well as the chrome frame were hand polished and the paint on the playing field features have been touched up as needed. When the machine was reassembled, all wood screws holding the mechanism and on the playing field were replaced with stainless steel screws. Once the machine was reassembled, it was thoroughly tested and playing field nails have been adjusted for playability.
Finished restored machines may have some pitted chrome, scratches, discolored plastic, etc. This is due to the conditions the machine has been exposed to over the years. We have done our best to produce the best quality restoration possible, but please keep these facts in mind when purchasing a machine from us.
