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 $75 per hour.

In Home

Any work done at your home is billed at $95 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.


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.


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 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.

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.
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.
