    I must admit that I’m fairly new to the pinball scene, but I find restoration videos to be very helpful and interesting. I haven’t been able to find a good list of YouTube channels that focus on pin and video game restoration, so I thought I would ask for advice from my fellow pinsiders. 1 channel I like is called the 8-bit-pit. Also a big fan of the Ben Heck show channel.

    Link to 8-bit-pit below.

    I would appreciate any advice and will consolidate into a list if I receive some suggestions!

    If such a list already exists, I would appreciate a link to the correct forum. Thank you!

    Those videos would be great if they would not have the annoying/arrogant registered sex offender behind the camera talking constantly. I won't give them the courtesy of the free views until that changes. It is a shame Ray even associates with this creep.

    Ray is good, but I was really put off when I heard the other guy was a sex offender.

    #7 1 year ago

    Wow....didnt knew about the other fellow!

    But still, Ray seems a good guy and he has so much knowledge and explains stuff very well - so the Ray Tech Tip series is really great for learning stuff.

    I appreciate the help. I’ll take a look at these channels.

    Our channel now has 1368 episodes up now...and a number of them show rebuilding in detail. Watch this one we did recently on a rare one--Zaccarri's FARFALLA. We try to keep the videos both informative and fun, and because we have entire families watching the show (according to the many pictures that are sent to us), we keep them clean! Please subscribe!

    As a graduate of Tuckey U lol...TNT videos are the best & FREE educational videos about restoring amusement machines on the net!
