Repairs

Many times Absolute Pinball will offer a flat rate to complete the jobs, that way you know your costs up front.

In Shop

Any work done in our shop is billed at $50 per hour.

In Home

Any work done at your home is billed at $75 per hour with a 1 hour minimum. A $20 vehicle fee is added to the overall total as well. We will only travel within Saskatoon to inspect and complete work. The in home service is more of an inspection to determine if the issue(s) are minor or major. If minor, many times it can be repaired on the spot. If not, the service fees are still due.

Restoration

Rebuilding / restoring any older pinball is always a unique process, as each one has different requirements based on extent of previous play, repair, and storage record. If you have a pinball you are unsure about call me to discuss what may need to be done. The rates above are designed as a reference point. Complete restorations covering playfield, cabinet, and board sets, could come in lower, or higher, depending on the pin’s existing condition.

Remember when talking about restoring in the Playfield, Circuit Boards, and Cabinet sections, do you want a Player, a Showpiece, or Both?

Playfield – Topside and Underside

Playfield topside and underside rebuild, as described in the Playfield section.

– For older single level playfields without ramps $650 + parts

– For newer & older playfields with ramps and/or multilevels $950 + parts

The rates above do not include any of the following services: playfield paint touch-ups, lamp insert repair, mylar removal, or plywood damage. These types of repairs will be quoted on a per job basis once I see the playfield.

Add automotive clear coat to either of the above for an additional $349.

Circuit Boards

If circuit boards are all that’s being serviced the work will be billed by the hour. If this is being done in conjunction with a playfield rebuild (highly recommended) then it will be $390 + parts.

Cabinet

Complete cabinet rebuild, re-paint, re-decal, as described in the Cabinet section.

– Older painted cabinets with the standard base coat and two secondary colors; including stencils, paint, clear coat, and all body work will be $1990.

– Newer pins with decals or silkscreen, decals and bodywork included will be $1990.

– All cabinet metal removed, sanded, polished, and replaced will be $449.

– Exterior/interior cabinet metal powder coated: Stocked colors will be $290. Non-stocked color will be $350.

Pick-up

Pick-up fee is billed at $80 each way providing pinball is at ground level. If stairs are involved the pick-up is billed at $140 each way. We will pick-up within Saskatoon only.



If you want to buy a pinball machine without the fear of inheriting someone else's problem – buy from Devron. He is meticulous in his restoration of machines and will never let anything go out the door unless it is 100%. I have seen the results of his work on many occasions and I am always amazed at the quality, and attention to detail. Many people and businesses claim that they have "shopped" their machines, but with Devron it’s the absolute truth. He goes through machines top to bottom, inside and out. I have plans to buy a couple more machines over the next few years, and I guarantee they will be from Devron. I just know that it will be done right.
I have been completely impressed with the professionalism, knowledge, and honest dedication to customer support that Devron Gibbon of Absolute Pinball has shown me.  His enthusiasm and respect for the art of pinball is readily evident in the quality and thoroughness of his restoration work.  Devron's willingness to answer questions and to assist a 'new to me' pinball machine has been remarkable - he honestly cares about his customers.

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!
