Pachinko Repair Service
We have repaired and restored hundreds of vintage pachinko machines. One of the biggest problems with vintage pachinko machines is dirt, dust, oil, rust, etc. can interfere with the normal operation of the over 100 moving plastic and metal parts. Our repair service involves performing any needed repairs so your machine is playable (see caution below).
Our Repair Service
One or more lights will flash when you get a jackpot and another light will come on and stay on to let you know your supply tray in back needs to be refilled. We use all new parts and you can choose between a 9V battery and a wall plug transformer as your power source, or both. Most people choose the 9V battery option. Cost is $60 for either the battery or transformer and $75 for both.
Glass or Plexiglas (optional)
We prefer glass as it is easier to clean and makes a nice clinking sound as the balls bounce off it. However, if the machine gets knocked over, the glass could break. We don't ship machines with glass, so that option is only available if you are picking up your machine. Glass can be purchased at your local hardware store. Most people choose plexiglas. Cost $20 for glass of plexiglas.
Pachinko Balls (optional)
We recommend 500 to 1,000 balls. The more you have, the less often you will need to refill your machine. Most people choose 500 pachinko balls. See our pachinko ball page for quantities and prices.
Cabinet or Support Boards (optional)
Pachinko machines need to be stabilized so they don't fall over. We sell cabinets and support boards. Most people choose the 2 support boards with bucket board. See our cabinet page and stands page for pictures and prices.
Packaging, shipping and insurance through Federal Express Ground will cost $75 within the United States. International shipping through Federal Express is available; contact us for an estimate.
Once service is complete, we will email you an invoice. You can mail a check, call with a credit card, or pay online with PayPal or a credit card through a link in the email invoice. Final payment is required within 60 days of invoice.
With our repair service we perform any needed repairs so your machine is playable. However, we don't disassemble and clean your machine, therefore we can't guarantee how long your machine will be playable.
