Pinball repairs

I do not give pinball repair advice by email anymore. It takes too much of my time and it's impossible to detect everything if you don't see the machine in reality.
Have you just bought a pinball machine and already have technical problems, then please try to contact the seller first (especially from a dealer).

If you want to learn to repair pinball machines yourself: at and you'll find repair information.
If you're working on an electromechanical machine then definitely buy Pinball service boek, this is the definite guide you need.

In the past I could help people with repairs but a lot of the repair persons I knew have stopped. In the Brussels region I still know someone, but for everyone else it's best to register on and ask for help there.

Do you have a pinball machine for sale ? There are a few specific models that I am still looking for, but you may always let me know the brand and model, condition and price, and your location. If I'm not interested myself, I maybe know other collectors that do want to buy the pinball machine.
If your broken pinball machine isn't worth it anymore to repair (repair costs can often be much higher than what it's worth), then I may be interested to buy it for parts.

This website is maintained by Aeneas Verhe. Pinball machines are my hobby for almost 20 years now, I am not a company.
The site was started after I bought my first pinball machine. I learned a lot about these fascinating machines, and wanted to share all this information. So many years ago there weren't many pinball websites. Even we had to learn how to open the machine and take the glass and backbox off, and could not find any website that explained how to do it.
First we only had some basic information online, like how to open and maintain a pinball machine. Then we noticed we got a lot of emails with similar questions from other people who wanted to buy their first pinball machine. So each time we emailed someone with some information, we created a page about it.
Later the website even grew more with more technical information, shows we visited, and much more..
Note everything here is our own opinion, what we learned, how we see things.. this may vary from your own opinion, there may be better ways to do something, use at your own risk..
