On power-up, all circuits tested 100%, only a wee bit of switch adjustments was required. The last few photos show the areas where playfield paint touch up was done. Now, back with it's

Just starting the teardown on this title. This will be receiving a new main Playfield, + Mini, and plastic set. New cabinet decal set, and clear topper cover. Metal will be powder coated in a dark pine green. All the other usual work will be completed, as described under "repair & restoration".

No backglass photos either, as I request customers leave them at home. The different 3-stages of restoration are explained under "Repair & Restoration" on the home

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 ...

Here is a set of photos showing the cabinet painting process. I have a different process, whereas, each side is painted flat, one at a time, and clear coated the same. way. Lots of extra work, but zero paint run, and a thicker build up. Had to re-do the right side of the backbox, as I built up the yellow to quick, now allowing enough tack-up time between application, and it did not set

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.
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I received my Space Invaders Pinball machine yesterday afternoon. It was very well crated and arrived without any damage! I have set the machine up and all works as it should. Thanks for coding the plugs, and providing the set-up manual. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
Hi Devron, I picked up the Buckaroo yesterday at the airport and got it put together this evening. It made it through the trip in great shape, thanks to your great crating job! Nothing was able to shift or get loose and you did a fantastic packing job! The machine looks and plays great! The new backglass arrived last week so I have to put it in to make it look even better. I'm real happy with the machine, and thank you for your very accurate description. Thanks, again, for everything and maybe we'll have the chance to do business again in the future.
