    Hi All
    I have a little Youtube Channel called "My Vintage Pinball" that I have been adding a lot of content too recently, plus some older videos I have had up for many years. I focus on all aspects of Pinball Restoration, Workshop tips and tool reviews. I post updates on my current restoration projects(currently Williams RollerGames). I will soon be updating my older Playfield touchup and Auto 2Pac clearcoat videos as I am just starting to restore my Rollergames playfield.
    So if your interested, please check them out, leave comments and feedback, and click subscribe if you would like
    Thanx for looking, and a Big thanx to all the others that contribute awesome pinball content in the forms of Youtube, Twitch, podcasts, pinside restoration threads and many more! Such a Awesome community we have!

    #17 2 years ago

    New Video, and new project?

    #18 2 years ago

    Good video and a great channel. Everyone should check it out.

    #19 2 years ago

    I notice you never like the repro boards. Is there a reason? Do you find the originals work better or do you just like it to be original? Just curious, thanks.

    #20 2 years ago

    yeah, I like the look of having original boards in the backbox, plus I like the challenge of making them work. Love that reproductions boards are available for most systems now though, they save a lot of games!

    #21 2 years ago

    Gotcha. I have a few boards that I am going to try to save. Hoping for the best anyway.

    Quoted from Tomass:

    Good video and a great channel. Everyone should check it out.

    I agree. Started watching your old videos back last winter and was pleasantly surprised when you started up your channel again. Great work on the pinballs and the videos. Very well made and informative and the occasional dry humor is funny.

    I just found this - These are great! Thank you so much for putting video to so many of the topics that we see on this site.
    Lots of great hints and tips along the way.

    It looks like you used to have a website - did you used to sell pinball "stuff" on the web? If so, what was it?

    Thanks for recording them and posting!!!
