Just watched the 'Repair Shop' on BBC1 [Series 4 Episode 5], if you want to watch it.

Where they restored a 'Win/Place' machine.

They made an excellent job of cleaning all parts but a shame they didn't replace back of cabinet and put some locks on it.

Yes, it was nice not to be over restored.....I would have changed the clear plastic though...

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.

Apparently, they're doing a one armed bandit next week.
