I did this video while I was cleaning my Battlezone arcade machine. The sides are all dirty and the control panel overlay is even worse. So what do I use, a Magic Eraser! Not sure what that is or how well they work? Well just watch this short video I did!
Here is a quick video I did on arcade game kill switches.
At least half of the arcade games I added to my collection had the kill switches taped in to the on position (or down). How many times have you seen electrical tape or duct tape holding a kill switch down. Most beginners do not know this, but there is a BETTER WAY.
Watch my video and see!
Just did another pinball video. This one was on my Paragon pinball machine in that one of the score displays had missing segments on the bottom. When there are missing segments it’s usually the IC chip, transistors or resistors. I replaced the IC chip and one transistor in this video. Plus you get to see my solder in the IC chip socket. I know exciting stuff! Here’s a chart to help you figure out what to replace.
Here’s a video on how to install a Pinball machine back box from older machines.
This is a Stern Stars pinball machine from 1978. I took it apart to move out of my basement and into my shop. It makes it lighter and easier to move this way.
Here is the same lift cart I use to remove pinball machine legs with that I use to move my pinball machines around. It works get in my shop with concrete floors, but also works good in my basement on carpet. If you own any pinball machines, even just one, you need an easy way like this to move them. This cart is from Harbor Freight.
This is an example on how I place and remove legs from my Pinball machines. My Twilight Zone pinball machine is used as the example machine in the video.
