Recently purchased a fairly run down DM and in the process of restoring it. I am relatively new to playfield restoration work and was hoping for some help. The playfield has two chips broken away right in front centre of the flippers. (Couldn't be in a worse spot) I have both chips and they fit back in perfectly. What is the best way to glue them down and also what about the playfield to the left of chip that is lifting. Any help would be much appreciated.

Get some wood glue or epoxy under the lifting piece with a exacto knife blade and then glue down the two pieces. Cover with wax paper, place a board over it, and then clamp it down with a couple C-clamps that are deep enough to get over the top of your damaged area.

Quoted from BFugle:

Thanks BFugle, that's what I was thinking but unsure as to whether it was the best approach.
