I've said it many times, there is so much talent on Pinside. If you need something, there is almost always someone who provides a particular product or service to suit your needs. The problem is, it's not always easy to find out who does what. Also, I've found that some people that come recommended, don't want/need the work. I always like to support the guys who want/need the work.

What I would like to do is compile a directory made up of the talented and skilled people we have here on Pinside. Here is how it will work; you recommend people on Pinside, list their expertise, and I will keep this first post updated with all the necessary info. I can also list preferred contact information or any other miscellaneous information next to their name.

If something like this already exists someone please let me know and I will have the thread closed. Also, any suggestions on organizing and categorizing is welcome. For now, here are the categories;

#18 3 years ago

Does anyone know if Paul of VirtuaPins is on Pinside? Anyone have a person they want to add to the directory? Everyone can suggest other fellow Pinsiders.

#19 3 years ago

For board repair: Barakandl, ChrisHibler, JohnWartJr and Borygard (sorry if I forgot anyone). They don't all do all systems so that would be worth noting.

Calico1997 has led bumper caps (sold through PinballLife if it matters).

I'll work on those next. I want to try to stick with guys that are currently taking/wanting work. I don't think Alex needs/wants the work. Even when he posted that he was taking work, I never got a response back. I know Chris has a huge backlog, I'll add him for sure though. I know Bryan had mentioned that he won't be able to use the shop he has been using (at least in the winter), I'll have to reach out to him and see if he is still taking work. If he isn't, that is a huge loss for the community.

Quick question about the ROM burns, do most board guys do ROM burns or is that a one off thing John does?

I leave burning ROMs up to JWJ.
I'll update a ROM for an MPU that comes in but sourcing, burning, testing ROMs is a PITA.

#36 3 years ago

I specialize in repairing WMS 3-7, Classic Stern, and Classic Bally boards. While I can fix other board sets, focusing on those lets me be very proficient and cost effective.

Thanks

Added a whole new section for that. What manufacturers do you carry parts for mostly? B/W, Gottlieb, Stern etc. I'm just trying to make sure I can fit some accurate info on one or two lines.

Quoted from TaylorVA:

Your expertise has been noted in Post #2, your very own section.

HHaase Siegcraft Electronics http://www.siegecraft.us/pinball/boards.html

I need to add these guys for sure. I just don't know where to put them in my categories yet. Board Repair?

Quoted from Kilowog2814:

Yep, I'll add it. Are you the primary point of contact on pinside for Pinballswag?

Nice, I added the Rom burning next to Johns name. Good to know!

Great news! Added!

Updated, thanks!

Quoted from mof:

Mike Chestnut - powder coating
-mof

I didn't realize Mike did powder coating too, that's good to know. I've had several full games plated by Mike. However, I've been told by Mike personally that he doesn't want or need the work. I'm sure this isn't the case for guys like Chris and others who send him like 20 coin doors at a time. But I want to make sure if new pinsiders look on this list they will be able to contact someone that will be available and needs the work. I can't personally vet everyone, I'll leave that up to the community.

For me...I can fix any pinball board except Game Plan and Atari. Currently not taking in surface mount work ala Stern S.A.M. system. Can also work on Taito Ice Cold Beer boards.
