This project is progressing well. The main cabinet body is full repainted, and clear coated. All metal has been sandblasted, and powder coated. The main cabinet has been repopulated, with a cleaned, and re-tightened wiring harness. The AS-2518-54 power rectifier board has been rebuilt, and just a note for anyone having to rebuild one of these (easy to do) the connectors are "AMP" brand, not Molex! J5 is usually crispy, and needs changing, issue here ...

Well this one was started back on the fall of 2021; at which time the cabinet was stripped, body work done, and it was ready for the paint booth. All that previous work can be found on Absolute Pinball Facebook, which is a site I no longer support. All future update are to be found here. The playfield has been stripped, both top, and underside. Ready to transfer the harness, and lamp sockets over to a new playfield, just as soon as I receive it, which ...

Metal will be powder coated in a dark pine green. All the other usual work will be completed, as described under "repair & restoration".

Here is another 2-stage restoration, which covers rebuilding the board sets, along with a full playfield teardown, touchup, clearcoat, and rebuild. Other than a good cleaning the cabinet will not be worked on. This is a Barry Oursler  design, and shipped with the wonky Banana Flippers. This playfield will need some mylar removed, followed but a through cleaning,  a few minor touchups, then clear coated, so it never degrades any further. It will need ...

Thank you...thank you...thank you for the Galaxy pinball machine!!!! A couple of friends of mine set it up this past weekend and it's fantastic!!! Whoever packed it for shipment did an outstanding job!! We are having the best time playing it. In fact the first night it was set up, I couldn't sleep so I went downstairs at 2:00am and played a bunch of games.
I contacted Devron to service and repair my 1977 STARS pinball machine, Devron was easy to contact and was waiting when I arrived. He is very knowledgeable and completed all the repairs he was asked to. Devron contacted me prior to making any extra repairs we didn't originally agree on, until he started to work on the machine and determine what was needed. The machine has been used every week since the last year and works excellent. Devron has a true passion for his work and I found the rates reasonable.
I was researching pinball machines when I found one of Canada's smartest techs and old school pinheads right here in Saskatoon. Devron's passion for this hobby goes well beyond just a business. He successfully coached me to fully repair and restore my first ever restoration, the magnificent Firepower. I also brought a fully restored Harlem Globetrotters and a unique Skateball for my next restoration. Devron helped me re-live my youth! All my buddies love coming over and we get old school for the night. Devron's service and support also allowed me to successfully take my new collection home to Australia and he continues to help me keep these great pieces of history alive even over such a great distance. You will not go wrong talking to Devron about your pinball or gaming machine needs!
Hello! I wanted to let you know I unpacked and set up Hurricane, and it is in beautiful condition, and working wonderfully! You did a magnificent job on the pallet/crate, and it arrived in great condition. It is currently set up in my living room, and playing it takes me back. Thanks! Pleasure doing business with you.
I was satisfied with Devron's services. His prices are reasonable and he is very knowledgeable. I bought a circus pinball machine from him two years ago. He has done an excellent job of refurbishing this machine. I can phone him anytime when I need questions answered or need to tweak my machine. He is always happy to help me. I would definitely buy another machine from him. I highly recommend him to others.
