put a wanted as in here asking for a restoration project. be specific. ie are you wanting an older EM (electro mechanical) or an 80s solid state or a 90s dot matrix display, DMD. also does it need to be working or non working etc etc.Hi All
New to the forum, didn't know it about till to day, so glad I found it.
Would love some advice on first machine to restore and where to look for one?
I'm up in the North Shields area.
I've got this woodrail for sale at the moment that's a good restoration candidate:Differently look for an EM to restore
yep clays guide invaluableLots of help on here and pinside along with Clay's guide to repairing EMs will make it a lot easier.
Make sure you can get a schematic for the table. I'd be totally lost without it.
That's because you can buy new direct from pinball resource - pbresource.comgottlieb manuals and schematics hard to find as no pdfs on the net as the owners of the copyright pursued all sites who hosted them a few years ago.
Great Zacc resource at http://www.zaccaria-pinball.com/zaccaria and segasa also hard to get info. segasa though often based on williams. i coulda find schematic for my segasa baby doll but the willians satin doll one is almost identical and it’s worked for me. agree you can’t fix an em without the schematic. not unless you’ve done them before.
