    I started restoring my first pachinko machine this week, learning what I need to know on pachitalk.com.

    Those of you who enjoy restoring mechanical things, consider pachinko. I picked up these three for $35 total and am three weeks into a refresh on the middle one. It feels like a cross between pinball, a mechanical clock, and a Rube Goldberg machine. Fun to work on and MUCH cheaper than my taste in pinball. Novus 1-3 is cleaning it right up. Ordering shiny new balls from ebay. I'm going to keep my favorite machine and give the others as Christmas gifts. I'm documenting my progress here: http://www.pachitalk.com/forums/showthread.php?54758-Newbie-here-What-did-I-bring-home-today

    I'm in the process of restoring this one. I'm basically redoing it completely. It had plenty of water damage so the background was shot. I didn't like the weird stuff in the corners, so i carved some mahogany into an island theme to match the new background. I'm going to add in some lights, run off of an arduino for more fun. I'm going to build a new case for it as well.
