Hi all, The Win and Place had been in the workshop for some time. It was on the floor at the back. I think he made a good job of it. Sadly, the ball hammer won't last five minutes. I have tried soldering them in - they don't last long.
The repair shop is the best programme on TV by far, and I bet there is a lot of people on here with broken machines that haven't worked for years. Trouble is, I bet you need a back story / family connection before they would consider putting you on the programme.
Do they repair for free? They never say. I know you need a back story. There used to be a USA version called Rick's restoration in Vegas. I've been on a tour there when I was in Las Vegas. He does a really good job on his projects. We could do with a business like that in the UK.
Yesterday there was a pre flipper pin table. A Spry Ball pinball as discussed in another post. Watching it live today I see in the title sequence an electro mechanical pinball and what looks like a mutoscope reel.
So worth keeping watching future episodes.
