My Story Of Pinball And Games

My father Nick SR got me into pinball machines and arcade machines at a young age. I was around 5 years old when I first started cleaning playfeilds Plastics and cabinets. Then moved up to full shop jobs on EM an SS pinball machines. My dad is a Bally/Williams Stern Data East SS pinball guy, and he messed with EM's . Dad hates Gottlieb's Machines , so I went against the grain. I bought a few Gottlieb machines and learned how to work on then. The rest is history. Still learning new things every day about pinball machines. Now our business is a full pinball arcade repair shop, a Arcade with 20 pinballs. Not to mention the Pinball Collection between the two of us.

Willing to take on almost anything. Working on restoring Classic Pinball Machines

My first pinball machine was a 1993 Data East Tales from the Crypt. This machine was a gift from mom and dad. I still own this machine to this day and will never sell it.
