Do you love restoring pinballs? Is resurrecting a pinball machine bound for the dumpster one of your life's missions? Maybe you just love a bargain or can't afford those 'nicer' pins. Whatever the reason, this is the hangout to post project machines you have found or any that you have for sale.

Project pinball machines listed on Pinside, CL, eBay or all others with contact information appropriate.

There are no set rules for this thread, other than those prescribed by Pinside, but please follow these guidelines:
Please be courteous and thank/upvote the original poster if you find the post helpful. Please list Manufacturer, game name/type, year, cost and location in the pinball machine in the post. And, of course, post a link or contact information. Please also add any major defects/problems or major positives.

There are other threads for 'nice' pinball machines. Please post the nicer pins there:

Some nice looking EM classics just came up on CL
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/some-nice-looking-em-classics-just-came-up-on-cl

Some nice looking EM classics just came up on ebay
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/some-nice-looking-em-classics-just-came-up-on-ebay

Some nice looking early SS classics just came up on the Interwebs
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/some-nice-looking-early-ss-classics-just-came-up-on-cl

My hope is that project pinballs can find a good home with a Pinsider who will treat it with the care and respect that these old works of art and mechanical magnificence deserve.

If you only want to post a link, do so - only guidelines here. But please be aware that any additional information you can add will save others from clicking a link to a trashed machine they have no interest in.

As always Caveat Emptor! Be careful out there!

Go get 'EM guys and gals!

This posting on CL has been around for months. The seller didn't respond to my first offer, but responded to my second. He has now updated the ad with pictures of the pins and combined the four pins into one package. I am posting it here for you hard-core restoration guys/gals. There are no plug and play pins as far as I can tell. This could be a real bargain for the right buyer - definitely project machines here!

'Big Deal' is the first use of a bank of drop targets on a Williams game.

#9 2 years ago

Projects are largely posted in the respective Craigslist and Ebay threads already, I'd guess most people in the market for Craigslist/Ebay games are expecting to tear it apart and fix it up anyway, at least in the EM threads.

#10 2 years ago

Since the term "nice" is in the title of all of those threads, I thought that this thread would be a good place to post pins that were "not so nice." Besides, some of us don't want to wade through posts of nice machines that we can't afford. It was not my intention to step on any toes.

Game/Type: Full House / EM

Cost: $225 lowered to $175 lowered again to $150
Location: Hackettstown, NJ
Link/Contact: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/ad/25565

Condition: Was working until moved. OP: "The playfield is in great shape no major wear or planking. There is one plastic that has the corner broken on which you can see in the picture. The cabinet is ok but a board has seperated on the lower cabinet as if the glue failed. The paint is not bad for the age. Backglass is not terrible I personally have machines that are way worse."

How can you go wrong at $150? This would be a great first time project for someone in the NJ area or a cheap pickup for a collector.

Thanks dmbjunky.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

I saw that cocktail pin and decided not to post it because it was missing so much. But you are right, it could be a nice conversation piece of art or parts machine. Thanks for adding it.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

This ad has been on CL for a long time. He's looking for trades but also has prices listed.

A lot of these machines hang around for a while before being purchased. It's nice as a buyer not having to be the first in a long line of buyers or constantly looking for deals. Of course, that has a lot to do with pricing. Some of these sellers want to sell their projects for working pin prices! Perhaps a little bit of "education" is required with appropriate offers.

I often want to end these posts with "for the right person, this pinball would be a great purchase." Project pinball machines aren't for everybody, but for some of us, they are a diamond in the rough just waiting to be brought back to life.

Thanks again for the projects you have found and posted.

I have a project Jokerz game in addition to the one listed here. I just posted some pictures of the projects machine. It is missing the CPU and other boards. I think just the interconnector board is there. I'd take $450 for the whole thing but I have some Pinsiders interested in parts so I might hack it up some more if it isn't claimed.

Pinball Machine 1959 Atlas - $300 (Union, MO)

stlouis.craigslist.org link

1959 Gottlieb Atlas Pinball Machine For Sale. This was a restoration project that I had started but haven't had the time to finish. I literally just put maybe 4 hrs into it removing the playfield plastics and cleaning it up. I haven't tried to power it on since it needed a new power cord and fuses. This will make a very nice example of this game if somebody wants to finish it. I really don't think it would take a lot to get it flipping.

The good-
Backglass in good shape with very minor flaking.

Solid playfield with very few wear spots.
No major damage noticed anywhere.

All original schematics in tact.

Everything seems to be in order mechanically.

The not so good-

Sling plastics and center plastic are warped due to the age. I have high quality scans of the original artwork that can be used to make repro plastics. Very common defect for older machines.

Needs new power cord, fuses, and rubber rings. (Minor fix)

Legs could stand to be stripped and repainted.

I didn't feel like posting pics as the playfield is currently taken apart. I can send some pics if interested or set up a time where you can see it.

Welcome davideokills and Rico_Roughneck. Thanks for posting your project pins here!

That Williams multi-ball Pokerz looks really interesting. The Pinsider buyers lament applies here: "if only I were closer."

Interested in the jokerz, message me. I have a project f-14 but missing way to much.

Of course someone asked about the project High Speed I didn't really consider selling when I listed the cleaned up one. I posted some pictures of the project in the listing for this one.

Playfield is pretty wrecked but it's complete and in good shape besides the playfield wear. They sell an overlay and I had planned on using it on this one. I'm asking $680 in the condition it's in or trade of similar value.
