Not a great update but the timber frame is now stained and cleared. I just need to order the glass and build the sign. I used the coin return tray and coin entry I got from the UK - pretty happy with them.

Glass went in last night which is good. I can now use it as a work bench lol.

I'll make the header next time I'm playing with wood - not worth making the mess for such a small item.

Two things which are nice ........
Your progress so far, sympathetic and looking professional.
The other: -
Having a dearly beloved who seems content to have large boxes full of clanky stuff hanging around. :o

Hahaha - yeah she puts up with plenty of my crap. She doesn't come out to the shed much and also avoids the spare room which I've also taken over.

Wow - that was fast (like your restoration work). How many tries before you mastered it?

Heaps, and it's definitely not mastered. I tried again after that one and only made the first hole.

Not finished yet but far better than it was and playable now. Still need to strip and paint the back panels and cash-box and build the topper. Unsure what I'm going to do with the playfield at this stage.
