If any of you like rare games, Rotation VIII is a cocktail game that rotates to face each player.

It is always broken with boards missing. In my entire life, I've fixed a single specimen and played it. Otherwise, I see them in garages with junk stacked on top of them, gutted .

Now it looks like http://www.polzin.ca/ now has reproduction boards available.

So dust off those Rotations and bring them back to life....so I can play them.

I got to check out one of these at a pinball person's house a couple months ago. Was really cool to play!

Tim's a good guy who has a passion for this machine. Owners are lucky they will have an option for a new upgraded board. If I had a RVIII I'd be all over this.

I saw he’s not on pinside anymore and the previous site doesn’t exist.

I heard that Flippers/John's Jukes now has all of the designs and would be taking over. That said, haven't heard anything about this since:

Look towards the bottom of the page, also has a link to the defunct website:

"Midway ROTATION VIII game owner? Do not despair! Help is available here...(well Jim's web site) - we are taking over the Rotation IV repairs and design from Jim. Hope to have more info soon!"

I do have some blank daughter boards (Tim design) on which you would need to source and weld the components.

Quoted from valentin27:

Thanks

I will email john jukes to see if he has any of these boards

Tim gave me his design few years ago to repair my games.

It was made on a specific format where you could print the board with only one supplier owning the software (about 50 times more expensive than Chinese suppliers).

I printed one to see the board, with it came the Gerber file. So I was able to order next boards from China for a price a lot more reasonable.

I don't want to do business out of Tim work, just reimburse me a little bit for this crazy expensive first board.
Also I understood that John and Tim had no agreement of any kind (copyright, exclusivity,...). So I trust I am not treading on anyone's toes.

If you need a daughter board (as designed by Tim) please let me know. I must have 2 somewhere and can have new ones printed if needed.

Hi Denis,

I'm sorry but we don't sell any parts for the Rotaion VIII =(.

Got this on your website ( Midway ROTATION VIII game owner? Do not despair! Help is available here...(well Jim's web site) - we are taking over the Rotation IV repairs and design from Jim. Hope to have more info soon! )

The respond from https://www.flippers.com/pin4sale.html
First I heard of it, but yeah it does say soon, not currently. The whole reason why I knew was because an earlier customer asked similar questions and we weren't able to help them. Also it still doesn't mention parts. I'm sure we can repair any boards you send us, but we don't stock them for sale..
