I recently purchased an Addams family pinball and the past owner was liberal with the description of "Cabinet and playfield are both in reasonable shape, some wear and touch ups as is to be expected, this is 22 years old, please do not expect a brand new item"

this is a machine i intend to keep for life so i though i would look at getting a new/ restored playing file in great condition can anyone point me in the right direction, also the translucent has a bit of tap over the dads face, only visible when back lite so i would like to to also replace that can anyone point me in the right direction.

this is my first post s, if i have done something wrong let me know.

Kind regards


p.s i am badly dyslexic so if their any spelling mistakes sorry

hey robert welcome to pinside!

not sure about the playfield, but it looks like the translite is out of stock at the usual outlets. Maybe someone around here has a spare.

Hello Robert,

If your not far from Allentown PA i would go to PinFest! You may (or may not) find what your looking for. If not its still a great time.

Hello Robert,

TAF is my FAV game. Also, Welcome to pinside. If this is a keeper for life I would suggest having your existing PF restored. Try contacting HEP or some of the other higher end restorers (Chad Keller for example) and see if they are taking new work.

Thank you for the replies,

unfortunately or fortunately depending on your view i live in the UK.

The pinball play perfectly, I just know its not perfectly and that annoys me.

This is my all time favourite machine, I just love the power and i have smiled every day i have played it, other than the wear my only gripe is it has a full led lighting system and the 2 white flashers are blinding when i play unless its daylight and currently working on a magic tv show in the UK so am not around to play in daylight.

I have the benifit that i have a venue that ask if they can use my pinballs so i think i will do this up over time and try and get a second thats perfect also

I am a fan of LEDs in general but not for flashers -- as you noticed, they are just too sharp. Luckily, there are tons of places online to buy incandescent flashers.

Well tonight a solenoid stopped working, but working all weekend so hopefully won't be down for too long
