I have a Sing Along which has a Wade Krause reproduction play field. I'm wondering how these play fields stand up to usage. The game is in my home so it will get hundreds of plays over time, not thousands. The play field is beautiful. I have always wondered what it would be like to have a new EM and now I think I know. What should be done to maintain it? For those that have had a game with a Wade Krause play field for a few years, how do they hold up and look over time? I'm also wondering if I should set the total play meter back to zero so I'll know how many plays the play field has had? Currently the total play meter shows about 12,500 games so I'm sure it has rolled over at least once. Thoughts?

Just keep it clean and it will last longer than you, don’t over think it.

Look up Vid’s guide to cleaning playfields if you need a refresher.

I would leave that playmeter alone. You know it has approx 112500 plays, so going forward just subtract 112500 plays to know whats the count is otherwise new playfield.
The best playfields for longevity for Em's was Zaccaria from Italy. The playfield never show wear, incredible. Not sure what clear coats they were using at the Zaccaria plant, to bad gottlieb wasn't. I guess that's why Wade is in business now !

Playfield looks incredible.
