    I picked up 2 new pins last week after a looooong drive. When I got there the TAF had some fairly hefty damage that had been hidden under one of the front legs. I was tempted to walk away but it was reasonably priced and I had spent a fair bit of cash getting there so took the plunge anyway.

    Any advice on how to fix this up?

    I had planned on regluing the front/side panel together but on closer inspection it's already been screwed and I'd end up doing more damage trying to dig them all out.

    Am I best off just filling it up with wood filler and sanding it back down?

    Thanks

    Thanks, I've already got some titebond 3 that I'll squeeze in and clamp shut prior to starting

    It's screwed at both ends multiple times. I appreciate it's probably the right way to do it by removing them but I'd be having to gouge them out of the wood all over the place. I'm gona leave them in.

    I've bought some specialist wood filler for 'large areas of damage' so I'll give that a go. It's hidden by the leg if I botch it. I'll post some pictures when I do it

    Thanks

    It is just a player, I've got some vinyl flipper guards to cover the wear. I'm not applying new decals as they are OK for the most part

    Built up 2 layers of wood filler so far. Fairly quick job. 3rd layer should be enough to sand off into a right angle and then get painted. Not perfect but will look a lot better than before

    Ask 10 people and you get 10 different pieces of advice. All advice is welcome

    There are multiple screws keeping the cabinet together and it's nice and sturdy. I had no intention of digging them all out, likely causing more damage along the way, just to glue it back together again.

    It's a players condition game to play to death, I'm not after a mint restoration

    I'm happy enough with the outcome

    The bolt holes were relatively undamaged and that is what takes the majority of the weight
