Welcome to Pinside, the absolute best web destination for all things pinball!
This is my first pinball and my first repair attempt. I have relieved heavily on the Pinball Ninja’s posts for guidance and this document is in appreciation for his work. I have performed many of the standard repairs, with a couple of twists, that hopefully are interesting/useful. As a newbie to this subject, some of the detail may be elementary to professionals, but still useful to other newbies. This post has been my relief valve when the frustrations of repair get the better of me. Before retirement, I documented computer processes, so I’m much more comfortable here than finding “machine bugs.” Here’s hoping that my experience as a handyman for years will translate to this environment. Please enjoy.
