Item description

Hi Guys and Gals.

We own a part time fabrication company that has been mostly making acrylic items such as jewelry and some pinball parts. Most notably to the pinball community we've been doing the Spiderman Colored Webs that are available on Ebay and some clear ramp plastics for BSD.

Well, our company is called Fabrication Unlimited for a reason. We are just as happy, if not happier, to play with metal and have decided to offer TIG welding as a service to the pinball community. We know how hard it can be to find someone to take 15 mins to weld up a little pinball part that also understands pinball enough to know what matters.

Since we have the ability to TIG weld Stainless Steel, Aluminum, and Steel; we've repaired metal scoops for a few friends and have recently been asked by other pinball owners to help them out too.

So if you have a broken tab on your guide rail or scoop we can likely fix it. Have a metal assembly with a broken spot weld? We can probably weld it up stronger than new.

Pricing starts at $20 plus return shipping. This would typically cover repairing 1-3 broken welds/small cracks

Turn around time is typically a week or less.

If you have something you'd like fixed, send us a photo of the issue and we can get you a price estimate.

Awesome service, this definitely will help out many!

#3 4 years ago

Wow, great asset to the pinball community. Much needed service! Thank you!

#4 4 years ago

I will be saving this post to my list. Thank for stepping up to the plate with a reasonable price.

#5 4 years ago

Nice! Do you do wire forms?

#6 4 years ago

good price

and that's coming from a pipe welder(though I don't weld anymore)

You should wear some protection on your arms and legs.

LOL

I miss Tig

This is awesome of you to provide such a service at a reasonable price.

Unfortunately the chrome plating on the wireforms makes it difficult. We would have to grind the chrome/plating off where it needs to be welded. Then it would need rechromed or coated.

If I'm not concerned about the cosmetics, and just want it functional, is it something you're able to do?

If you send me a photo of what is needed via PM I can look and let you know.

Jason, this is great news. Welding on these small parts is certainly tricky, knowing how much heat to apply without warping parts and then cleaning up the weld(smoothing it) so that it does not look too unsightly. Really nice to have this service close by.

#12 4 years ago

Here is before and after of a wireform repair. We did have to grind the chrome to get a good weld.

not bad really, not bad at all.

I will be attending the Louisville Arcade Expo if anyone wants to save on at least one way of shipping. May be able to even do it over the weekend if it can be dropped off with me Friday or Saturday and then returned Sunday. All depends on how much work is needed.

Good to know your services, goodluck!

Great job, Jason! I got the wireform reinstalled tonight, and am really pleased. It looks nice, and was returned lightning-fast; I doubt it was in his hands for a full day.

Glad you are happy. I just do the prep and clean up, my fiancee does the welding.

Here's a ball guide I got back from Fabrication Unlimited. Turnaround was seven days with shipping both ways. Thanks!

Oh good, it fit nicely. We didnt want to add a second bead down the inside of that bend because of how close the screw hole was. Instead just welded on the bottom side and then filed it down flat.

Hi Jason. I need the metal piece on my TAF vault scoop welded on. Had a buddy weld it a few years ago, but it's backwards. I will grind it off before sending to you and tape it in the correct place for reattachment.
Also, I have a metal towel rod bracket that broke. I think it may be aluminum as a magnet won't stick to it.
Please see attached pics and PM me.
Thanks!
Todd

Yes, yes it should.... We try to fix things better than they originally were where possible.

I'll be emailing a photo of my TFTC ramp with a broken weld. Glad to come across this thread while my TFTC is still apart.

Not sure if I just missed it or what, but never saw a photo from you.
