Great experience once again

This is the third pinball we bought from Joe this year. This is the only place we would purchase pinball machines from. Joe does it all and he restores pinballs to almost brand new working condition. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he is a pleasure to work with. What a loyal and honest Continue Reading

Great Experience

We would highly recommend Pinball Restoration.  It is not very often that you find a business with both owner integrity and merchandise quality. We found both with Pinball Restoration.  Joe took the time to give us guidance and detailed information on the ownership of a pinball machine. We are now the owners of 2 beautifully Continue Reading

1987 F-14 Tomcat, Restoration done to perfection

From the start Joe was helpful, knowledgeable, and straight forward. Joe explained in detail the procedure for our restoration. He got me in contact with a gentlemen that transports pinball machines all over the east coast and I was able to arrange transport from my home to Joe’s shop and back for an extremely reasonable Continue Reading

I am a kid again

I shopped on line many sites for pinball machines, I found pinball restorations and found out they were less than an hour away.  I spoke with Joe and he invited me to his store.  I had six machines in my price range.  I tried all six machines and narrowed down to 2.  I played both Continue Reading

I’ve been trying to find a nice Stingray for quite some time – they are not easy to find!  We bought a few that were OK, but no prizes.  I was looking at some of the work Joe does and saw he had a Stingray.  Medium story short, we now own a really nice one!  Continue Reading

Joe does it all!

The only think Joe cares about is his customers. First rate restoration! The machine works like it did when it was new.  I’m totally happy with how everything was handled. Very professional. No one will ever touch my machines but Joe. I completely trust him…:)

Kids and Adults Love it

We purchased a Stern Stingray Pinball machine for our kids’ Christmas this past year. We had it plugged in and waiting by the Christmas tree when they woke up. Neither one had ever played a vintage machine. But, they fell in love with it! We have had a great time playing. It’s a 4 person, Continue Reading

Awesome Christmas Surpise

Great experience purchasing our pinball machine. Joe was there for our delivery and we had one small problem and Joe made a special trip out. The grandkids were so excited and so were our older sons. Great way to keep them off their ipads for a while. We have a daily winner who gets to Continue Reading

Awesome job

We had been looking for an older pinball machine and found Pinball Restoration on line. We took a trip to the shop where Joe met us and allowed us to try all the machines he had available. We chose a Williams Sorcerer machine. Joe and his crew did an amazing job restoring it to like Continue Reading

Lawman Restore

I had Joe and his crew restore a 1971 Lawman. All I can say is that Joe brought the machine back to it’s 1971 days. His attention to detail was second to none. The machine is awesome in appearance and in play. I can not say enough about his work and love of pinball machines. Continue Reading

Goin’ Nuts

What a fantastic job. We’re recreating a Goin’ Nuts pinball and the cabinet work is fabulous. This will be an excellent addition to the collection.

Exceptional customer service and quality work

When I decided to buy the 1976 Williams Aztec, Joe was insistent on completing the work to such detail that he would not let the machine go out the door before confidently making sure every last detail was complete. His work is impeccable to every last detail. He certainly is more concerned about the meeting Continue Reading

Fish Tales better than New

Joe is a class act and he delivered a perfect pinball to me in quick order. I highly recommend Joe for any of your pinball wishes, he is a solid dude.

B Lunsford Fish Tales Restoration April 29, 2018

Artistic and detailed

First let me say Joe is an honest guy. He puts a ton of sweat equity into his returns and will not let a single detail escape HIS eye. If you truly want a machine that plays like new, he is your guy. Then, if you want, he takes it to another level with enhanced Continue Reading

1977 Williams Liberty Bell

Earlier this year, I had purchased a 1976 Williams Space Odyssey from Joe. It is such a blast to play and Joe did such a fantastic job on the restoration, I knew immediately that I wanted another EM from Joe. I saw that he had a 1977 Williams Liberty Bell that I thought would go Continue Reading

Refurbished a FirePower machine

We have had our refurbished FirePower machine for less than a week and our family has already spent many hours playing it! It looks amazing with all of the LED lights Joe installed. It’s really a beautiful machine. Joe told us we would probably get addicted. He was right. 😀 We are already looking for Continue Reading

Turning back the hands of time

I bought a perfectly restored Hollywood Heat pinball machine and every light, bumper, and target works like a new machine. The playfield is as clean as when it left the factory. Joe delivered the machine to my house and went over everything about it before leaving. I highly recommend Joe and his company.

Vintage Beauty

Joe did a beautiful job of restoring our 1966 Chicago Coin TV-Baseball game. While he could have made it new, we both agreed that the vintage look was best. I used to play the game by the hour at our local bowling alley when I was a kid and it transports me back every time Continue Reading

Amazing Outcome

I brought Joe a non working Bally Eight Ball with hopes of getting it working and cleaned up a little. I was blown away by the completed restoration, not only was it working like new he brought the worn dingy playfield back to life. The full cabinet repaint was amazing and the upgrade to LED Continue Reading

Courteous and professional

About a year ago I bought  a partially restored Firepower Pinball machine. The lady and her father didn’t have the time to finish it. I sought out Joe from meeting him at Florida’s “Free Play” event last year and spoke to him about finishing the restoration. Joe has always been courteous and professional. Joe did Continue Reading

Very grateful

We purchased a restored 1976 Williams Space Odyssey from Joe a couple of weeks ago.  I have wanted an old school EM pinball like I played back in the ‘70s and this Space Odyssey was perfect.  Joe was fantastic to deal with and was over the top helpful with all of my questions.  He did Continue Reading

Terrific Job

We bought a great FirePower II pinball game that Joe had restored, and are absolutely happy with it! Joe did a terrific job making sure everything worked and looked great. The wife and I play every night, and it’s the hit of our parties. Thanks Joe!
