I have been working with Electro-Mechanical devices now since the age of eleven, repairing washing machines in my Dad's laundromat. Somewhere in all of that, I merged my work with my love of pinball. I currently have a decent collection of EM pins with a few early Bally SS games thrown in for good measure. I believe that EMs are the heart and soul of pinball, and someone who doesn't believe me has never played an EM the way it's supposed to be played, or running the way it's supposed to run.

in the day, EMs were fast and fun to play. Today, most of them are tired, and people who aren't "in the know" just accept that they're old and slow because that's the way they were made - not true. You know that guy in the neighborhood with the kick-ass 1970s muscle car? You think he just picked it up like that off of Craigslist for a couple of bucks? No way!

EMs can be a ton of fun when they work right. I specialize in getting EMs working and looking like new. If you have an EM you can't get running and need some help, I'm your guy!

I think it's almost an art bringing back an old EM game making it play like the day it rolled out of the factory

Thanks, HDC. I love seeing that looks on someone's face when they see an old pin playing fast and hard! Then the complaints start like, "wow, that's a sucker shot!" or "Hey, how come you can't hit that shot directly? That's stupid!". Yep, it's always fun bringing a classic to a tournament and seeing the reactions!

Thank you, RWH
